Finished! (Finally) I have been wanting to draw out the cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris for quite some time and it seemed like last week gave me a reason to. This place has meant so much to me. It was the first place I started my mission in France and the last place to finish my 18 month service. I know it means a lot to many people there and all around the world and I’m grateful many people have contributed to rebuilding it from the fire & before I hear another person tell others about how and where their money should go or be used, please think about where you are spending your own money and make some changes in the world yourself before speaking. Also, think about what this place is and means to others. Thanks for hearing me out and following the process on my story. Stoked to have finished this piece and it might go up on my shop here soon so keep an eye out 🖤
A little throwback of my first semester of college before my time in France when I was working a lot with charcoal all the meanwhile not able to resist cross hatching in ink 🤪 I want to make more scullies
First layer of this piece somewhat down. I started it in black and then decided midway that I want the background to be mainly white and so it’s all over the place but I know exactly how it’s gonna look in my head and I’m very stoked to work on it. We are in Vegas for the break and I brought it with me cause I want to work on it. Here’s to hoping that I do... if not back at it next week 🤪
“Ellen” I got her back from the gallery today. Thinking about listing her up on my Etsy shop. She’s my first official portrait in oils so I obviously still have a lot of learning to do with the composition of the face but I’m pretty stoked w/how it turned! I also had a lot of fun doing something different w/textures &am planning on doing it on more works this year 💕 also used @ellyeah as my reference model & it was so much fun!
(Edit: right is SOLD) ✨ Fitz Mystical Eyes ✨ they are posted in my shop and ready to find a new home. Get them before they’re gone :) Link in bio for details. Also I’ll be in Vegas for all of next week so if you’re located there you’ll get it asap.
My lil corner ✨It’s a little all over the place but it’s one of my favorite places to go to come back to my self &create. Still trying to brainstorm ideas for my big new canvas. Hopefully that comes to me this week so I can start it and hopefully finish it before we move to Chicago. I hope everyone has their favorite little spot to realign.
Finally had some time to finish this guy! If you want to see how he turned out come by tomorrow night at The Basement here in Rexburg at 7:30 pm to see it & my other sculpture in the show! Swipe for the details. There will be music & art &who doesn’t enjoy that. Yayyy for end of the semester festivities 🥳🤠🐂 also i just realized I give my art pieces genders hahaha so there’s that. Thanks for looking :)
Happy Monday ✨ A couple of people have asked me what one of my fav prints in my shop is so here she is, “Magic Touch” available in two different sizes. Created during Inktober an everyday drawing challenge during October. Thinking of doing more pieces in this style. I always have tons of fun using ink. Go peep her for more deets link in bio ✨

Currently in my final sculpting class so I’ve been working on a couple of things throughout the semester. This assignment was wire themed &sculpting things out of wire is always so fun 🖤 here’s a little scully
She is a few fine hairs away from being finished. Yes.. it’s taken me quite a while to finish her up as I started her in February with reference model @ellyeah (one of the most hilarious & strong women ive never met!!) in mind. But I’m super stoked about this one. She will be shown in the “Healing” exhibit along with two others of mine that will be open during the first week of April! Details will be posted up soon. So stoked ✨

A finished little doodle to start this day. I gotta straighten out that border though hehe. I’m having fun drawing cathedrals and castles and temples. Started doing this while on my 18 month service in France where I was surrounded by them. The Salt Lake City temple is always a beautiful sight to see though ✨
A watercolor remake of some fruities I pastel painted a couple of years ago. Liked it better before I outlined it with ink so this is the “before.” Maybe I’ll make a print of it &hang it in my kitchen sometime soon. Happy Sunday 🍋🍊
Going through my sketch book. Very proud of some, hate others and some are just totally unfinished but I guess that’s what sketch books are for. I love seeing what’s in other peoples so thought ide share mine, enjoiiiiiiii 🙃✨
From my trip to New York &The Met last November, Fragmentary Colossal Head of a Youth. I am obsessing over these ancient sculptures lately. They remind me of France cause they are everywhere& in every museum/gallery there.
Very excited about this new piece. Was feeling a little discouraged once I started it because I usually end up pretty unhappy with my portraits in oils but I am loving this gal and surprised at how far I got in it. My goal is one piece a month so I have about a week and a half to finish up letsgoooo

And you’ll get a cute lil business card along with it 💙 go check them out! &if you find one you like make sure to tag me cuz ide love to see where you put it!
A fun little doodle of the one & only. I started listening to his music & that of Wu Tang Clan as well as reading their literature in high school &have been obsessed w/their music, king fu style & readings ever since. Seeing them live was even cooler, unfortunately w/out ODB himself. There’s no father to his style and rhythm 🐝⚔️⛩
