I have some more love for you today—I did a series of four miniature drawings I call “heartbursts,” in celebration of the coming Valentine’s Day and love in general. This was a fun way to bring my patterned drawing style together with the holiday theme to make a larger meaning, mainly, the ever-expanding capacities of the heart.

The heart is such a well-used symbol, that it is a challenge to try and make it new. I’m not sure if newness was even my goal, but more I had a goal of creating something fun that brings a little more creativity and joy to this time and place. I hope these drawings lift you up, or fill you up, or brighten your day. They are available in my shop.


“Heartburst One,” 4 x 4 inches, pen and ink


“Heartburst Two,” 4 x 4 inches, pen and ink


“Heartburst Three,” 4 x 4 inches, pen and ink


“Heartburst Four,” 4 x 4 inches, pen and ink

    I absolutely love these (and all of your work!) It reminds me of my doodles way back when in high school, only yours are much much more refined and beautiful, of course
