Pet Portraits

I know it has been a while since I wrote a blog post but I’ve been busy working on paintings for my upcoming art show in Paso Robles. I’m excited to showcase some fun designs and some recent new projects I’ve been making. Stay tuned on more info on that as we get closer to April. For this blog, however, I want to share some recent commissions I designed these last few months.

If you are interested in purchasing a pet portrait or painting, please visit my shop or contact me directly. The turnaround time for these portraits are about a week. However it depends on my workload, detail and complexity.

Coconut Cookie Bars

Recently I attended a company party where everyone brought a homemade dish to share. There were a variety of desserts, from apple pie, cheesecake and coffee cake; to danishes, coconut cookie bars and brownies. 

By far, my favorite dish from the night had to be the coconut cookie bars. It won me over with the creamy consistency, coconut crunch and the delicate nutty flavor. Not to mention the perfect amount of chocolate chips on top. Yum!

Today, I'm sharing the recipe of these delicious coconut cookie bars. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Happy Baking!

#everyday

A little over a week ago, I decided to start an #everyday challenge because I want to improve as an artist. I used to just paint whenever I felt the right mood come over me, and for a (very) long time, that seemed to be enough. Recently, however, things have changed. I don’t want to create “whenever it’s beneficial,” I want to create because I truly love and enjoy it, despite how I may feel going into it.

Tile Art Designs

Looking for an art piece to make a statement in your home? I am designing custom hand-painted tile art that can offer your home a fun, creative way to decorate any space. Tile art is versatile and can be used as simple interior/exterior décor, framed to be a focal point or even tiled into the floor or walls to accent a space. The designs can be abstract, but may also represent an idea, a pet, family member, a philosophy and/or religious significance. Designs can span multiple tiles, can be repeating, or on one individual tile.

Expectation vs. Reality

Most everyone goes through a time in their life where everything just shifts; life begins to make more sense and we live happily ever after – or quite the opposite! Regardless of the route we go down, changes need to be made in order to adjust or we fall into the rabbit hole (easier said than done!). However, these challenges, whether they are mental, physical, emotional or spiritual, create who we are. All of which are learning experiences that teach us more about ourselves and our truest desires.
