Drawn to the West: Illustrated cards

Illustrated post & note cards

I grew up writing letters to my grandmother on hand-made stationery I produced by photocopying my favorite horse photos, cutting them out, taping them on blank paper, and photocopying the whole ensemble.

Now, I’m thrilled to share with you a more grown-up version of my hand-made stationery.

These illustrated post & note cards feature some of my favorite creatures and plants. I drew them all on-location, in the sketchbooks I’ve been filling for over a decade. Choose between vibrant color or classic black-and-white, all printed on sustainably sourced paper…or don’t choose, and get a grab bag I’ll select for you!

Commissioned Drawings

Love the idea of an illustration, but don’t see the exact one you want?

Maybe you have a specific plant or animal you’d like illustrated. Maybe you have a special landscape, scene, or even a building or object in mind.

NO problem! Send me your reference photographs (no more than 3), and I will create a unique pen-and-ink drawing, with or without watercolor added (your choice!).

Get in touch, and we’ll talk size, style (sketchy or precise), color vs. black-and-white, etc.! 


 Sketching materials

20150729_095949Using quality materials makes sketching a little bit easier, because these materials are designed to produce visually appealing drawings.

That’s why I stock art-quality materials. I’ve already consolidated them into two kits full of the same materials I use when I’m sketching in the woods, in my garden, or abroad. I also offer a sketching basics guide and curate a list of reference and inspiration books.

Artful Giving: Art prints & art gifts

While I am a firm believer that anyone – even you! – can learn to sketch well enough to produce artful drawings, I understand that not everyone wants to give their own work as gifts.
That’s why a limited selection of my illustrations and natural history observations are available for purchase!
See below for the illustrations that are available. Only mugs and tote bags have text on them. Fine art prints are image-only.
