The EH Journal: July

Happy July!

Thank you for being here and being interested in my art. It's been a fun month sending wallpaper samples out and I'm so appreciative of that support. I'm hoping to add fabric that matches the wallpaper in the next year and will keep you posted! In the meantime, keeping my fingers crossed I get to see photos of these designs brightening up homes soon!

On a personal note, I've had a lot of fun watching several friends become moms over the last year. Because my creative brain thrives when I reflect on what I can give to others, some recent baby showers inspired me to create several new products with their bundles of joy in mind. A few things I'm most excited about---

While not working on proofing and editing all of the above, I intentionally carved out extra time to paint for fun, with no thought of "can this flower eventually become a wallpaper" or "what product is this for?" Just painting to paint! I shared what I was working on each day through instagram stories and, based on the feedback there, I hand selected a few new pieces for my original art gallery and turned the most popular pieces into new art prints. 

You can shop the new gallery of originals here. The gallery includes works from the new ABC book, portraits, botanicals, and other whimsical subjects. 

If art prints fit your budget better, I added a handful of new works to my life & style series here. Each is professionally printed on heavyweight archival rag paper with a small, USA based printing company.  

Lastly, my favorite thing that I added is this new portrait series. While I don't typically paint a ton of figures, I felt inspired to paint this small series of women. I would like to add more portraits to the series in time should there be interest! I had originally had Albert Einstein, Arnold Palmer, and a dozens of others on my list to paint. 

Behind the scenes, I'm also working on getting more new things ready to launch in August just in time for back to school season, so stay tuned for 2023 wall calendars, a new desk calendar, new planner styles, & (my personal favorite) notepads!!! I picked up flowers this week to get video content for social media and am really excited to share everything. 

And that's a wrap on the July digital journal email! Thank you for following along!
