Its been 5 years since I designed the Design Build Adventure website and it’s time for a little refresh. The original site has been showing its age for a while now and the responsive new site is well past due. Please enjoy the work of our dear friend Jack Sanders’ and his motley crew at the all new designbuildadventure.com.
Commissioned for Bob and Michaela Hachtel – this 6ft. piece was started in March of this year and began as a watercolor and ink wash. It slowly evolved into a mixed media piece. As I looked for clarity in foreground plants, I moved from detailed ink drawing to collage then added pressed grasses and leaves.

Sarah volunteered with Amala Foundation at Camp Indigo this week. The goal was to create a community painting with 5-12yr. olds on a 48x60in canvas. The youngest group began at the bottom and the older kids finished up the top. They added as many flying creatures as possible, including a long-haired dragon and a flying pop-tart cat with a rainbow tail.
In November Nick and I visited India with a small group to volunteer at the Tender Heart School and adventure a bit. While staying at the school during the first week of our trip, we painted a classroom and taught various art classes. Some of these photos are in the education page, but here are a few other photos from the school.
The staff at the school was incredible- they took good care of us and prepared our hearts for the rest of the trip. If anyone is interested in volunteering with Tender Heart (I totally recommend it!) – learn more at http://tenderheartfoundation.org or contact Elena Colon: [email protected]
