One of my favorite places to go is on the Georgia coast on St. Simons Island. I love the vibe, restaurants and water. It is always where I go when I need to get away and have some fun! The marshes on the island are my absolute favorite. After my last trip, I was inspired my the grasses, water and colors. Here are some of my latest wor...

Shoutout to my bestie, Doc! It's hard to get anything done with this face smiling at you! #obvi He gives the best advice on color choices and layouts... or just naps at my feet. Basically the same thing. He's the best. I'm not obsessed or anything. :) #doodlelove

One thing I love about acrylics is to layer on the paint. Whenever I start a piece, I have no idea what the final picture will look like. It’s so much fun to see a piece from start to finish. Here is one I recently one painted called, “In a Tizzy” and the process. This turned out to be one of my favorites so far! It is still available...

Every year, the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts in Valdosta (my hometown) hosts the Spring into Art Show. It is one of my favorite shows of the year! I always look forward to entering a piece or two of my art in the midst of so many talented artists from all over the South.

 

The Turner Center holds a special place in my...

I have FINALLY gotten around to organizing my studio! When I stay “studio,” I really mean the office nook in my apartment, but hey, you've got to start somewhere! After months of papers, brushes, paintings and just plain old stuff everywhere, I feel like it’s an actual workspace and it has made getting things done so much easier! I te...

This past weekend was the first one since before Thanksgiving that I had absolutely no plans! It was AMAZING. When someone asked me what I was doing this weekend, I said I have plans to make no plans. No agenda, sleeping in, catching up on TV shows = HEAVEN. PS, if you haven't seen The Fall on Netflix, you need to check it out ASAP. I...

There is nothing I love more than poppin' bottles and finding a reason to celebrate (even if the only reason is I got out of bed this morning) with friends. Back in November, a dear friend of mine got engaged. I wanted to send her something different, fun and personal as an engagement present. I decided to create something with one of...

I spent the New Year in New York... so much fun! The concrete jungle is one of my favorite places to visit, but I was pretty happy to get back to the South. This trip was one of the first where I didn't let the inner planner in me tag along. It was a do whatever you want, when you want kinda trip and it was just want I needed to start...

Where has this year gone?! I can't believe it's almost Christmas…the best time of the year! I’m looking forward to spending the next few days at home with the ones I love most!

 

Back in September, I was contacted about doing a painting for a Christmas card. I was really excited about this opportunity, but nervous at the same time. The...

I was so excited to be home this weekend!! There is nothing I love more than family, friends & being home in Valdosta. On Saturday morning, I was working on a painting at my parent's house when my niece, Mary Grace, came over. She saw me and immediately said, "I want to paint too." She's at that fun age when she wants to do everything...
