Southwestern Vibes

Georgia O'Keeffe's skull paintings were the original inspiration for this project, both in motif (skulls and flowers) and color palette (browns with pops of blue). I wanted to add my own twist, the illustrations are flat, monoweight linework.

Southwestern Vibes: Santa Fe Garden & La Vie + La Mort

My latest illustration project is inspired by my trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. I traveled to the heart of the American Southwest with three of my closest girlfriends. Together, the four of us made the most of our long weekend. The highlights:

• Southwestern food for just about every meal (hello, margaritas & queso fundido)
• Hiking (and getting lost) in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains
• Renting bikes and exploring the town
• Scrambling through the slot canyon and hoodoos of Tent Rocks
• Ogling original paintings at the Georgia O'Keeffe museum

Check out my blog post to see more artwork inspired by my travels.
