Our waitlist is currently full. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We will re-open the list once we are able.
Thank you for your patience.
To get started: Give this a read then email me to discuss your commission.
To create each piece I will often do 3-4 iterations through sketches and colors tests then the final watercolor. I prefer to be given as much free reign as possible once we have discussed the concept, size and exchanged reference images. I will send sketches to keep you updated on progress. Replies like “Yay!” and “OMG!” are always welcome.
Most of my watercolors are inspired by pop culture and adorableness—My best work is expressed through cheerful moments and whimsical mischief. I try to make each piece joyful and fun in content, composition and color. These things make me happy and I hope they make you happy too!
Getting on the waitlist is simple, just reach out with your commission idea and I will put your name down. Once your turn comes, full payment will be due upfront before starting work.
Depending on demand, commissions can take 2-4 months per commission order, and sometimes longer. If this is a gift, please plan ahead. Your patience is appreciated.
