Gilda Radner


I picked up Gilda Radner's memoir expecting to get more than a few laughs and some inspiration from a lady whose courage on screen set the stage for most of the funny ladies we all admire today.  Gilda's comedic courage was nothing compared to the bravery she showed by even writing this book about her fight with cancer. The memoir was absolutely not what I expected and speaks very little about her career - but my perspective on this woman has forever changed.  She has given a new definition to quite a few words for me, not the least of which is bravery.

I'm turning 30 in a few weeks, and this is how I feel about it.

I am not sure if this is supposed to be me or not. I am not a big lady - and I don't have a horse. But for whatever reason, when thinking about my 30th birthday coming up in a only a few weeks, this is what popped in my head. So I am going with it.

Save the Date for Jenna & Steven


Here is a Save the Date card I recently did for some friends. Jenna and Steven are getting married in Jersey City, at a venue right on the water with beautiful views of Manhattan. Congrats to them! And I hope they love their card.

Friends come in all shapes and sizes...



My good friend likes raccoons. I wish I could spend all my time painting these ladies. Maybe someday my wish will come true...

Landmark Theater Wedding Package






This wedding package was a bit of a challenge for me but I am really happy with the outcome. The Landmark Theater in Syracuse, New York is a pretty amazing place visually, decorated primarily in rich reds and golds and accented with ornaments throughout.  As you enter the lobby you are greeted with  a spectacular - what is described as - "Indo-Persian" mural that the bride and groom wanted reflected in their invitation. There was so much to be inspired by I know I will keep this place in mind for future projects. And I can't wait to see the place in person on September 15th to celebrate the wedding of my good friend Luke and the love of his life, Ailee!

Story Time


In the midst of a few invitations I have to get done this summer I also promised myself I would tackle the illustration ideas I have had in my head for awhile.  The first one is a tribute to my Nana. She was quite the story teller and inspires me on a daily basis. In this piece I want to capture the "magic" my sister and I would feel whenever we slept over her apartment in the Bronx. Only Nana Lab could make a tiny apartment in the heart of the Bronx magical.

I am almost done with my value study- next will be a color study and then I will start the actual painting. Stay tuned!
