Thanks SVA Portfolio Curators!

I plowed through my emails yesterday to find a very welcome notification from The SVA Curation Team on the Behance Network, informing me that my kid’s illustration portfolio is featured. Proud to be an alumna, and I’m thrilled:) Here’s a link if you’d like to view the work. Advertisements

Mysterious Lorica

There is a story behind this painting.  I posted this piece first on my Illustration Friday  page for the topic mysterious, but I its first obligation is to serve as an illustration for a story floating around in my head.  This story will convert itself into text after I have a few more illustrations worked […]
