Frequently Asked Questions


How do you create your illustrations?

I hand draw all my illustrations and then bring them into Adobe Illustrator to apply color. 

Can you recommend any on-line courses?

I do have quite the e-course obsession. 

Do you accept commissions?

Yes! I would love to work with you! While I am not a designer, I can come up with a graphic illustration for you to use in your logo. I love to create illustrations for websites, custom portraits, or graphics to use for your business. Low complexity drawings start at $40.00 and high complexity drawings start at $150.00. Send me a message and I can come up with an estimate. 

Do you sell pre-made hand-drawn graphics?

Why yes I do - over in my Etsy Shop: Little Happy Drawings

Where do you get your inspiration?

Vintage children's book, old scraps of fabric, folk art and collected antiques, taking walks in the neighborhood, the library, and lots of coffee. But for some reason, my best ideas come to my just as I am about to fall asleep. I probably don't remember most of them.  

What is my ambition, dreams and goals?

I always wanted to be children's book illustrator! Now, I'm dreaming up of writing and illustrating my own serious of books. 

What is next?

Some good things are coming!
