Happy December ladyfolk!

This year has just flown by. I am so looking forward to enjoying and creating lots of holiday cheer this month with you all! Starting with this cheerful free desktop art I made for you. Simply click the image above to enlarge and download this December calendar with my hand-painted watercolor wreath as your desktop or iPhone background. Please share and leave me a comment or post on instagram so I can see who dressed their tech with it!

I am kicking off the month with two watercolor workshops, one at The Soul Project in Laguna Beach December 6th during artwalk and one Saturday December 8th at Crystal Rose on Balboa Island in Newport Beach. There is still just two spots left for each if you want to join, sign-up now.

Fashion Illustrating at the St. Johns Knits HQ

LOVE WHAT YOU DO and you will never work a day in your life!!!

A little motivation Monday for you aspiring creative ladies because this is exactly how I felt when I was invited to fashion illustrate inside the St. John Knit headquarters in Orange County.

Fashion Illustration by Kimberly Heimbach

This special day was for a top client of St. John's who was in town to preview the new Fall collection, have a beautiful lunch and receive a fashion illustration completed live by me with watercolor!

I thought this idea was so unique and now the client has a special piece of original art to remember her special day. If you are interested in hiring a fashion illustrator for your event or special meeting you can contact me via email

I've decided to keep the client anonymous out of respect for her privacy.

Mom's Nite Out! Live Watercolor Hand-Lettering Event with Ladyfolk Studio

EventsKimberly HeimbachComment

Bring your mom, sister, bestie, daughter... Mom's night out in Chino tonight! 

I will be live hand-lettering personalized names on watercolor prints of my original art for all the ladies. There will also be a photo booth, food samples, make-up tutorials and gift bags for the first 150 people! You could also get some shopping done or grab dinner, here is a full list of what the Chino Towne Center has to offer.

This will be my first time in Chino for an event, last month I was in Riverside for a similar event for Easter you can see photos of below. It was such a successful event I actually ran out of cards to paint. So that was 150 watercolor hand-lettered first names in less than 2 hours, wow!

If you are interested in having a live watercolor artist at your next event you can contact me here for a quote or email I offer three different approaches for live art: hand-lettering names of guests on printed cards, live fashion illustration of guests or a large scale watercolor painting of your event scene.

Happy April! My motto this month and pretty much every month...

Find beauty in the everyday.

Download the new desktop background inspiration for April by clicking and saving the image above. Make an effort every day this month to find something beautiful. It can be as simple as a flower blooming, making a handmade card or a hike to a view.

This month I will be introducing my new brand Ladyfolk Studio and sharing something beautiful with you every week. This week I will be sharing my bridal shower at the gorgeous The Ranch in Laguna Beach, a how-to guide for hanging an eclectic gallery wall in your space and on Friday weekend rituals you should indulge in. 

Share your pics on how you find beauty in the everyday on instagram and tag @ladyfolkstudio I would love to see what you find!
