Last week I finished my full sheet watercolor commission and delivered it to my client. As I finished the last few details, I couldn’t help but feel elated. I have been working on this particular piece for a little over three months and put my heart and soul into each brush stroke.
It was indescribable seeing the look on the family’s faces as they saw it in-person for the first time. I feel extremely honored to create a symbolic portrait for this young family and hope it makes them happy each time they see it.
I just completed my commission and have resumed work on my ‘Guardian Angel’ series. I started this particular piece (pictured above) last year and am really looking forward to capturing the innocence of sleeping children and babies.
This new series will be done in a softer/muted palette and explore the angelic realm. I’ve always believed in angels and feel compelled to share this spiritual aspect of my art.
Commissioned art (of your own child/loved one) is available for sale on my Etsy store (Purple Eggplants).
I hope you enjoy my new art!

I decided to give my commission a mental break this morning and worked on a portrait of my niece and my Sketch Fest prompt “coffee shop in fairyland.”
There is a poem to accompany the completed illustration…I was compelled to write. My inner poet and coffee addict decided we needed to share.
