I love creating my own handmade brushes for all of my illustrations. This allows me to make the most of each work of art I create. The textures from my brushes add rich depth to my work.

I created these beautiful storybook merry-go-round illustrations to showcase the capabilities of my Carousel Photoshop brush collection. These homemade brushes were created with real scanned-in high-resolution textures.

This brush collection is available for purchase.
