Original paintings for Well-Read Women book

This week flew by. I’m getting back into the swing of work and putting focus on new ideas and new projects.

This week my book editor, Kate Woodrow interviewed me about the Well-Read Women book making process and I shared scrapped covers, spines and some original artwork on the Chronicle Books Blog. Above are some more snaps-shots of my original paintings that became pages in the book.

Also, an interview/feature on the book came out in the November issue of O, The  Oprah Magazine (I snapped a quick pic of page 38 on instagram). Woo-hoo.

I put together a little press page with links to all of the beautiful features. I’m so honored so many publications I admire were into the book.

Have a great weekend.

    Oh my goodness, I just discovered your art, your blog! I am listening to your interview on the Good Life Project ( I put the podcast on pause to type this.) Your art is stunning. Back to the podcast and then I’m off to download your book, “The Well Read Women” on my iPad.

    I recently saw your book in a shop and was so drawn in I bought two! It sits by my desk and when I need inspiration I go page by page and it’s always like seeing the work for the first time. It’s gorgeous, and such an eclectic selection of women! Amazing work, wellcdone!cI see there are 10 prints for sale right now at Uncommon Goods, any plans to sell prints of more? I want so many of them and to give them as gifts to lady friends! Thank you!

    Hi Rebecca,

    This is the sweetest note!! Thank you so much for reaching out. I hope you see some prints you like from Uncommon Goods. They did such a nice job printing and framing them. I don’t know, someday maybe we’ll add more characters. XO.
