I was contacted my my Uncle, back in September or October, to create a Christmas gift for his wife, my Aunt. I was honored! He wanted something that had all the grandkid’s names on it and that was the only request. After doing some pondering, I found a great quote about being a grandparent and decided on a house for the main theme. Home is where the heart is you know. Especially a grandparent’s home!

My 2010 donation to the AIGA Heart Art auction. When I got the notice that it was time to register my piece, I didn’t have a name for it. As I was filling out the application and got to the line “Title of piece” it just filled itself in. I love when that happens! Then I had to figure out what a giving tree actually looked like. I started with sketches of hearts falling from trees and hearts in trees and hearts floating out of trees but it just wasn’t working. My giving tree had to be something special. My giving tree was going to give out love-filled balloons. So there you have it.

I wanted to honor the memory of a girl’s beloved horse and friend.

I met the former Bachelorette at a purse party. And yes, she’s just as cute in person. We got to talking about art and she was looking for a birthday gift for husband Ryan. This is how it turned out!

A friend ordered this one as a gift to her parents. (Are those chopsticks in your pocket or are you happy to see me?) I lurve them!

I love the family that ordered this piece. Not only because they could open a gallery with all the Kirby Inks they have, but because of the passion that they live their life with. This piece captures the fun time that they took off from their careers to spend with their son. How cool is that?!

I love this one. Even though I wasn’t in attendance, the pictures from this couple’s wedding were so beautiful and romantic that I can just imagine the love that was in the air.

This baby shower gift was centered around the sweet rocker that was in the nursery. That chair will hold a lot of love! The bird is sending love from the tree outside. The pillow is a sign of love when mom and dad aren’t in the room.

A baby shower gift. All the animals in the jungle are gathering around to welcome the baby to the world.

We lived in a great neighborhood in Texas called…none other than…Greatwood. I always knew spring had arrived when the baby chicks started appearing around the lakes. This day happened to be St. Patricks Day. A perfect combo for some art!
