The day Prince died I was sitting at my office job, and I was sad. I felt trapped at my desk and was searching google for news of his passing. I came across a gorgeous black and white photo of him in profile and so I sketched it quickly on a post-it note. I thought, “huh, that’s actually pretty nice…maybe I’ll try doing one a day.” You know, to assuage some of the boredom that inevitably accompanies office work from time to time.

One post-it portrait a day has quickly turned into an obsession. I make couples portraits for wedding presents, I have completely covered a piano in my little sketches for the arts organization Sing For Hope, and I opened an Etsy shop about 6 months after that first post-it at my desk. I love capturing people’s faces. I find it relaxing and to be an artistic outlet that brings me joy. Oh, and I sketch dogs, too! I hope you enjoy them, and if you’d like to have your very own, check out the Etsy shop to commission one!

Prince was my very first post-it portrait.
J + J – dear friends who got married before I was doing the portraits, so I sketched these to give them on a recent visit to Venice, CA

The Post-It Portrait Piano for Sing For Hope
I volunteered to decorate one of the Sing For Hope pianos this year in New York City. I drew over 200 portraits to cover this piano, which was placed in the courtyard of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in Manhattan. Each portrait is a volunteer artist for Sing For Hope!
