Stay Safe!

In light of recent events, this seemed like a timely reminder. The heart is made from scraps of fabric I’ve used in sewing over 150 masks for others during this pandemic. Please feel free to share, download, print or post this image anywhere you feel it might make a difference. posted by Veronica

Art Projects!

One of the bright spots of the coronavirus sheltering at home (and a welcome respite from our troubled times) has been the daily Zoom sessions spent doing schoolwork with my 11 year old nephew. As summer vacation has begun now for him, we’ve shifted to daily art projects. This one involved mono printing with leaves […]

Windmills of the Netherlands

We didn’t want to leave Amsterdam without a visit to Zaanse Schans, which is a kind of historic park with twelve working windmills. While there, we learned that there are currently 1100 working windmills still operating in the Netherlands; during the pre-industrial revolution days, there were 1100 in the small area around Zaanse alone. I […]

Danielle

As a working illustrator, you get used to the fact that sometimes, for all kinds of reasons, the projects you start change course mid-stream. I was a little bummed that this advertisement went another way though, since my beautiful step-daughter Danielle modeled for the illustration. Anyway, it was fun to draw her! Posted by Veronica
