As Seen in Key Biscayne Magazine

This month has been amazing for me in the Studio. I was first featured in Brickell Magazine as an emerging artist to watch in Miami. Now, Key Biscayne Magazine features the CSD Studio as well!

It's not too late to order your special someone a piece to stick under the tree!

Miami Art &Culture Week + The CSD Studio

For over a decade the first week of December in Miami means art, parties and more art for those of us who live for the cultural offerings our vibrant city has to offer. This year, my friends at Brickell Magazine did a piece on up and coming Miami artists and featured me as one of them!

So if you are in Miami pick up a free copy or just visit,  http://tagupload.com/digital/BM/12_15/files/1.html to view the magazine online. I'm on page 96.

Happy Art + Culture Week!

New York State of Mind

For almost 3 years, I called NYC my PT home. I would fly up once a month for about 4 days, go to grad school and enjoy the city. I love the city. Lucky for me, I get to back to the city in a few weeks for work and soak it all in again. In honor of that trip, here are two pages from my sketchbook.

Ava and Erin

There are those girls who like pink, others that are more in favor of purple... you have girls that are into unicorns, others who prefer kitties. This pair of sisters like all of the above and glitter... so a combination thereof is what they got from me at The Studio. 

The thing is... I was not a cat girl... I was not a purple girl... I was a pink and teddy bears kind of kid myself. My daughter is a purple cat lady... and when she saw "Ava" she reminded me how much she would like one of her own. "We'll see, C" is what I told her.

For the Summer III

To continue to show off pages from my sketchbook from this summer... here are two other drawings I did. I want to turn the top one into a painting, because we SHOULD all be beautiful cupcakes in a world of muffins! 

Hope you are having a sunny and creative summer!

Family Portraits

I spent the weekend drumming up family portraits. Here is the one I did of my little family. These are the perfect gift for grads going off to college, for grads moving into their first apartment... for that late Mother's Day gift you forgot to buy and for anyone already thinking about father's day! Email me for commissions.

Art Talk Tuesday: Music and Lyrics

If you were to look at my sketch books from high school, college and grad school--- you'd see  lot of music lyrics with illustrations. I have not done that in a while, but last week was inspired to. I hope you like it.

Can you name the lyrics?

I've been busy painting a few nights a week. It picked up speed when I got my new watercolor brush pens. They are great to work with and make clean up a breeze. Here are some of my favorites thus far. I hope you enjoy my sketches. If you are on Facebook, be sure to like my page. I'll be doing a giveaway when I hit 400 LIKES!

I've made an effort to fill a page a day in my sketch book this year. I know we are only 13 days in...but so far I think I've only missed about 4 days. Here are some of my favorites from this past week.  I hope you had a great weekend and may this week be ever creative!

Art Talk Tuesday: Hello 2015 !

Happy New Year! 

This year I really want to make sure I do a few things... 
1. Try to be as healthy as my husband
2. Get my home organized...I'll be 37 this month. I want to stop feeling like I live in  STY... 
3. Get back to basics... i.e. draw everyday. So here you go... 

These are my first two drawings/ paintings of the year. I had missed my sketchbook and watercolors. It felt so nice to give myself a few minutes. 

Juggling two kids, work, and everything else has been a challenge, but this is a great way to decompress and let it go (as my favorite 4 year old would say). So here's to 2015! I hope this year is the best one yet for all of us!
