Over the last few years I have been working on a collection of Digital art works which I hope to compile into a book in 2012. The book entitled "Visions of the Imaginatorium" will be a collection of my work along with quotes and poems that move and inspire. I wanted to share a few of the pieces to give my followers a taste of what is to come.....please enjoy!

I will keep everyone up to date to when this book is released!
I love autumn the colors the cool crisp breezes and how the sun cast the most amazing shadows.
Being an artist it is wild what I find myself looking at and finding beauty in. Here is Houston the sun sets earlier these days and the sunsets are just amazing and I find such beauty in them. as everyone knows this is one of my favorite subjects to base illustrations on.
I am busy doing art again and hope to have more pieces to show you in the future!
I hope for all of you who celebrate Thanksgiving you have a peaceful and joyus day with friends and family.
To Celebrate Spring and the fact I am back doing my art I am going to give away one of my mini watercolor paintings. This is a 2.5" x3.5" original watercolor painting! And what do you have to do to be eliagble for this amazing prize? Simple just post a coment on my blog and April 30th I will draw a name from the entries and the winner will get the painting for FREE!!! Have fun!

there are days when I miss things in my past, where I look back at my works of old and see where I came from, so I thought it might be fun to share some of my older works. A few years ago I did a collection of Masquerade ladies, this took me back to when I was in school studying fashion illustration and design. The images were inspired by the mask designs of my friend Judith Rauchfuss, her work is incredibly imaginative and otherwordly and I adore it. I invite everyone to check her out at
We I am a bit of an artistic slacker at the moment. I am still working on the remaining pieces of my triptic piece. With spring here I want to spend time outside...if only I had an out door studio. I still am planning to do some little original pieces so keep an eye out for that. also just so everyone knows I will be doing some craft fairs this fall so I hope some of you can come out and see me there. I will have some new prints and my handmade journals and note cards. For now I will share a few of my digital works with you...I am planning to do a book of images and poetry....let me know what you think, I love hearing from you all!
I just finished a set of Artist trading cards and wanted to share them with you. I am loveing doing the mini pieces of art and think I am going to turn out a few little originals to sell on my etsy site. please feel free to visit the site at http://www.etsy.com/shop/willowispstudios?ref=pr_shop_more
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
I wanted to wish you all a very happy valentines! I am extremly busy but wanted to share a piece I finished at the end of January for a friend in Ohio. This is the first piece of a triptic that I am doing for her and she had requested pumpkins, fairies, and vines the rest she left up to me and as always I took it and ran with it. I think in 2011 this will be a creative year so please keep checking back to see new works I have created!
this one is entitled "Magic in the pumpkin patch" and below are the sketches for the other two pieces!
