Since I’m just beginning this journey of being an illustrator I’m trying to get my hands on as many mediums as possible to see what I like working with the best. Mediums I’ve played with include:
- Pen & Ink
- Gouache (which is an opaque watercolor paint)
- Colored Pencil
Aaaaaaaaaannnnnd, drum roll, please!
- Watercolor Pencils!
I am so excited to announce that I received a set of watercolor pencils for Christmas this year and can’t wait to see what I can do with them! I’m not a painter, by any means, but I know how to use a pencil and I absolutely love the look of watercolor artwork in Children’s books, so this seemed like the perfect choice!
I still love working with Pen & Ink ( and I have a piece I’m working on that I’ll be posting soon,) but I will definitely be adding more color to my artwork now!

Find time everyday to practice what you love. If it’s drawing, draw; if it’s running, run; if it’s underwater-basket weaving, then get to weaving!
