Very excited to announce I will be collaborating with amazing writer, Inger Margaret Foster on her newest book! Inger and I go WAY back to childhood as friends, Girlscouts, and even high school colorguard! Reunited recently our friendship again formed into a fast and furious bond! I adore her writings. Inger has asked me to do some illustration in one of her newest books. I am honored and hope I can do her writings justice! Please visit Inger's website HERE. Note: Above image is titled "Inger's Rose", after she and I went for a walk through a state park one day and I captured this image.
I recently joined Red Bubble, uploaded several designs and then ordered some product. This video is me and my real reaction to seeing my art on my first Red Bubble merch purchase. I get excited over stuff like this. #HappigalArt #Cathlyn #RedBubble #merch #reveal #art #artonmerch
Art Room to Guest Room in 5 Minutes!
Today's video is just over 2 minutes long. Hubby and I show exactly how we dismantle and convert the art room into our guestroom. Hopefully we inspire others to create the art studio space they desire. Let us know what you think of our art room ideas and guest room solutions.
Very excited to show you my new art room! I have been longing for a new art space/studio for a few years now and my hubby and I finally figured out a solution that works! Struggling to keep our guestroom but needing a separate space for my art creation- we struggled. Here is a video I created to show our art room/guest room solution. Let me know what you think. I will be posting another video soon showing us actually converting it for our guests. Hope you like Disney inspired decor! Cheers!
This week I created a short video on a DYI project worked on a while back- frosting my front door. This allowed light to come in but also offered us additional privacy. Click on the video below to see! Thanks for watching!
“S Garden”, 11x15 watercolor on cold press paper. I am so digging this new style I have been playing around with. Def mid century modern. Reminds me of ‘Vera’, who used to be manufactured into scarves, placemats, and table cloths in the 1960’s. #retro #SGarden #flowers #watercolor #flowergarden #midcenturymodern #throwbackdesign #newstyle #fantasygarden #fantasyflowers #newmedium #Sharpie #happigalart #zensocreativeinstructor
Hawaii Sings, Watercolor, 11x15 on cold press paper.
Playing in watercolors lately. Here is one I especially liked making. I have not been to Hawaii yet but it makes me think of those beautiful islands out there...
Inktober day 6 HUSKY, Decided a baby Husky would do. I always thought I’d have a husky one day. Then I met someone who actually owned one. Yes, they are one of the most beautiful dogs on the planet but they also shed a carpet of hair daily! They also Howl a LOT!! #inktober2019 #husky #puppy #babyhusky #huskypuppy #illustration #handdrawn #ink #svslearn #jakeparker #cathlyndhappigal #happypuppy #inkdrawing #art #artoftheday
New work, not for sale. Title: Spectrum! 24x30, Alcohol ink sealed in resin. Special thanks to Barbara. This work is special to me, as my former employer, now a friend, asked me to create something unique for her new home. It was an honor to be asked, especially from someone I have such enormous respect for. Barbara has always been a positive force in my life.

Alcohol Ink (originally) now only available as digital. This was part of a painting I was working on. When I realized I had to rework this section I decided to photograph it so I could salvage this one area. I just love how it looks like part of the universe. Maybe even a developing star system.
