I was thrilled to take on this project for The Green Kangaroo because the chalkboard trend has been sweeping couples off their feet — almost more than the mason jar craze! To set this design apart from competitors’ invitations, I went for an entirely hand-drawn romantic feel, while keeping it relatively simple.
I carried out the design concept through various other items in the suite, including: response + accessory cards, save the dates, and day of items such as place cards, table cards, and programs.
Designed using Adobe Illustrator CS5, Photoshop, and InDesign. Photo styled and shot by me; originally used for a small self-authored feature on Between Designs blog.
Hand illustrated birds and an artistic floral design adorn this cheerful holiday card. I designed this double-sided card for The Green Kangaroo’s holiday collection to appeal to customers looking for a subtle, yet festive style suitable for a combined seasonal photo engagement announcement, save the date, or even birth announcement. I created this card in three color options.

A simple sketch using pencil + pen. I later turned this image into a woodcut print.
I created this small trio of canvas works using paint, charcoal, pastels, and glaze. All three images wrap the sides of the gallery canvases. These were simply done for my personal collection.
This abstract illustration of row houses under the night sky was created using various watercolor techniques and pen drawings. Prints are available upon request.
A small pastel/charcoal sketch of Jerry Garcia referencing The Grateful Dead’s “Steal Your Face” design with the hint of blue and red. I completed this piece years ago + sold several prints through Althea’s Attic in Wilmington. Prints still available upon request.
