My old Wacom tablet has finally given out so I’m researching what I might get to replace it. I like your illustrations and wanted to ask what tablet/programs you use/work in to create your pieces.

Hi Jess - thanks for the like on my submission "Jingle All the Way". Means a lot coming from one of my favorite artists on Minted! I'm just starting to submit illustrations (mostly have just done my fine art).

Hi there, and thanks so much for the support :) Your paintings are just so dreamy (do you work in oil?) and your way with color is truly inspiring – I could learn a lot from you regarding color :)

Hi Jess. Thank you so much for the likes on "Vibrant shore" and "Via Lauretana II" (I withdraw that one, because I had other stuff I wished to submit and there was the 30 limit). You have some amazing entries. I am particularly in love with "Gone Coastal" and "Yonder". Your use of color is spectacular. Congrats!
