Color exploration and new designs!

These last 6 months, I dedicated a lot of my time and energy into painting new pieces of original art work, and also to exploring my passion for illustrating and designing.

What I’ve learned over the last 6 months is that consistency is key. Practice is paramount. Confidence comes with practice and consistency.

What I’ve also learned and am working more on is that color isn’t my strong suit. I live in a world of black and white. Everything from my clothes, to my decor to my dreams are mostly black and white! I gave myself parameters when using colors in my original art pieces and allowed time, and mistakes to happen as I explored color.

Designing on laptops and using programs like Procreate and Illustrator is an entirely different bird. Screens vary, depths of color, hues, saturation etc. can all impact digital designs. I’m still playing around with color palettes and finding my groove, but I’m really pleased with what is coming out in my new designs.

I captured a few here for you to check out!


Here’s my most favorite one so far. It’s an abstract landscape that I created.


Plant Lovers dream is one that you can’t kill!


Plant Life is another fav.


Looking at the designs here, I can see that light, neutral colors seem to be a theme for me! Let me know what you think about my new designs in the comments below! I’d love to hear your feedback!
