Much LOVE Monday: new art!

my goodness, it is April 9th and there’s pretty much a blizzard out in Chicago right now!   What is going on!?!?!?!?!?



But GOOD news is with the crappy cold weather I’ve actually been staying home and making art!

I just finished this new painting i really like:

I’ll finally be opening the studio to the public at the end of this month and I can’t wait to show this new piece off to visitors!





New comic: what is it like falling in love

I have’t been drawing much the past year, but sometimes I have something I want to express – and share it with the world.  Lately I have been feeling lonely and anxious, but there was a night where everything just felt perfect…

Sleep Comic

It’s good to be reminded sometimes that everything is ok.

In other news, today also happens to be the day that when I got my CCS acceptance letter 7 years ago :)  Must be something about May 7th…


Mystery Comic…

K so… im going through papers and drawings and sketchbooks as I organize my home office, and I find this comic.

I can tell that it’s mine, and it’s not a bad looking comic but.. I have no memory of drawing it, what it’s about, when I made it… ?!?!? No clue 🤷‍♀️

Mystery Comic - variant


It’s kind of weird.   What does mean?  What was I thinking and feeling when I drew this?  WHEN did I draw this?

I literally have no clue.   Strange, huh?

Much Love Monday – Almost February



It’s Monday, and it’s almost February, and we currently going through the annual “January Thaw” here in Chicago, which means the worst is yet to come…

But for now, I will give me love and thoughts to my world.   In Chicago there is a neighborhood called Humboldt Park – which houses one of my favorite places in the world… Humboldt Park :)   Sadly Humboldt is also known for really terrible crime, which seems to have surged recently – and the reason it breaks my heart is because I love this place so much (and it’s not even my neighborhood!)  I spent my Sunday in the area and just loved it and I can’t wait until spring and summer when the flowers will bloom, and ill pick new garden plants at Adams and Son and ride my bike to the Boathouse at the (Humboldt) Park. So this Monday, i give it to you Humboldt Park Chicago

Much Love Monday; Heartbreak Songs




Man, today isn’t such a Much Love Monday for me.  If anything it’s a big Heart Break Monday.

I think today I am going to post my Sad Girl Playlist of what I’ve been listening.  I hope it brings some joy to you as well :)



Happy Heartbreak Monday!

MUCH LOVE MONDAY: Seeing Something Beautiful

A few months ago i was reaching for my glasses and WHEW! flew right off the table onto the floor and broke in two.  Ever since then I’ve been MacGyvering it back together with tape and hot glue (so cool, I know) because I had too much going on to save up for some new ones and a new eye checkup.

Luckily, I have an amazing human in my life who was willing to push me forward and help me take care of myself – I should be getting my brand new glasses in a couple of days :) So Today’s MUCH LOVE MONDAY is:  Seeing Beautiful


Much Love Monday: Home and Space

This past week I had a very stressful move (which is a little redundant, since 99% of all moves are stressful)  but for real… I am so glad it’s over.

My move is an adjustment, it’s a smaller place, new people, different set of rules, but as the days pass and I start to clean and unpack and spend time, I am really enjoying and appreciating it.

My new place is in my old neighborhood that I lived in years ago.  There are some things I get to go back to, old hangouts, routes etc.  But there are also a lot more new things that have really been keeping me exciting, so it feels like a new place.

Either way I had some kind people and lovely friends keep me company over the weekend to really bring down my stress level and lift my spirits.  So this Much Love Monday is all about:  Finding home and enjoying your space –


Much Love Monday: Food with Friends


c74e6bee754f84058888658b1c8d9d83This week I am celebrating what a lovely time I was able to have with people I care about.   Eating with friends is one of life’s biggest blessings, especially when it’s with someone you really enjoy and makes your life better :)

This week’s Much Love Monday is loving eating together <3



Happy Monday ;)
