Musing On My Muses

The best part of the best gift I ever got -- hundreds of pieces of artwork I made over many years for my nearest and dearest, collected and scanned by my wonderful husband -- is that whenever I look through them, it's a rush of happy thoughts and memories of the people I love most in the world. An anniversary celebrated, a thank you for a wonderful meal, a shared joke or passion, an expression of what a friendship means to me. When I look at these images, I realize my artwork has been mostly about my muses-- the friends and family who inspire me and what I love most about them.


A birthday card for my elegant friend Dana, who loves Chanel and knows how to throw a fantastic Gatsby party. 


A Valentine for my Mom and Dad, inspired by Lila, their mischievous terrier.


For Liane, my dog-loving Francophile friend, sketches of the chiens we met while we traveled in Paris.


A birthday card for my friend Christina, who can not be replaced.

  1. I had forgotten about the No.2 'Dana' card! I just plucked that one out of my files and have it tucked in my inspiration boards again! Merci! Fun to revisit.... xo, Dana
