New Look for JZ Artworks Online

Thanks go out to Rome Zivoin, my husband and personal web developer, for the beautiful new site that he built for JZ Artworks. My illustration style has evolved quite a bit over the last few years, and we both decided that it was time to give the JZ Artworks a face-lift. We decided that the site should showcase my new digital style, and I love that Rome came up with a layout that really integrates the content into the imagery, much more like a picture book page than the previous site. Also, the average viewer might not be able to appreciate this just from looking at the site, but Rome spent a lot of time using new coding options and solutions that really enhance the site. I hope you all enjoy the new look as much as I do, and if you are interested in seeing more of Rome's website design and development work, check out his online portfolio as well at

Olivia's Treehouse

For those who might not know, my husband and I are expecting our first child, a little girl, in a little over 5 weeks! So, I just had to take some time to create some custom artwork for the nursery, which has a jungle/monkey theme. It took some time to get the sense of depth just right, but I am really pleased with the result and can't wait to hang the piece in her room! Since the piece is digital, I am having to wait for the printer to get the piece printed before it can officially debut on the nursery wall. Waiting, waiting, waiting. I'm starting to get very good at waiting! Hope you all enjoy the piece!
