What are Big Sisters for?

What are big sisters for? Getting you ready for your first day of school of course! This fashionista says peacocks are IN, and you look fabulous!

My artwork is frequently inspired by my two fantastic kids. 


My ten year old daughter loves to dress up her little brother, and because he adores her, he would wear whatever she told him was in style ;-)

This illustration is done in pencil and watercolor, I will be doing a series with these two characters that are loosely based on my two children.

Living in Southern Alabama I have learned that summers are long and hot, but a nap in the shade with a cool drink make for a relaxing summers afternoon!
