Below are some of the main illustration projects that I have been involved with lately:
Coming really, really soon!
Written by Colleen Pressprich, I've been blessed to illustrate her new book, The Women Doctors of the Church. Using watercolor, I painted scenes from the lives of these amazing women saints in an Art Nouveau-esque style.
From Emmaus Road Publishing is the third book I illustrated, "The Catholic Treasury of Prayers and Verses." This 56-page book is filled with the classic Catholic prayers you'd expect, along with some treasures that may be new to you and your children. Plus there is plenty of scripture inside. The size of this book was made little, for little hands, but will be enjoyed by kids of all reading (and listening!) ages.
Published in 2019 by Our Sunday Visitor, here are my first two books! Light of Heaven Saints Coloring Book, and Light of Heaven, A Children's Book of Saints.
The Coloring Book is now available at OSVCatholicBookstore, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
The picture book is now available at:

About the Light of Heaven Picture Book:
The “Light of Heaven” children’s book is a beautiful way to teach your children or grandchildren about our heavenly friends and helpers, the saints. Bright and colorful images will delight their eyes while short synopses on each saint provide inspiring glimpses into those holy lives. Each saint image has a Latin word that corresponds to an aspect of their personality, with the word translated on the opposite page. It’s a little Latin lesson!
About the Light of Heaven Coloring Book:
Anyone who loves the saints, and loves to color would benefit from the “Light of Heaven” coloring book. The “Light of Heaven” coloring book is quite versatile- you can use it to color with your kids, and talk to them about the saints, or you can grab a few girlfriends, get out your “nice” set of pencils, and make an evening of it! Whoever does the coloring will appreciate the bold lines, nice paper, and smiling saint faces found in this book. Be they 4 or 94, this coloring book is friendly to friends of God!
Look for my art in OSV Kids!
I've been blessed to do some illustrating for the OSV Kids Magazine. Here are some images from the the March 2021 issue. I'm grateful that they send me projects a couple times a year; my latest was the cover of the August 2022 issue. They have been using a grand rotation of Catholic illustrators in their publication- I have a subscription and it is always fun seeing my friends' work! But most importantly, my son and his friends enjoy the magazine.
Other Illustrations by Brightly Hude Studio
I have done a number of illustration projects over the years, and several were for the Women In the New Evangelization ministry. My illustration schedule is pretty full at the moment, so stay tuned for new projects!
