This time last year, I had just finished up the school year and was beginning my transition to full-time art making. It has been such an incredible and challenging season of discovery as I've attempted to find a style and stick with it.  

Last September, I had the opportunity to learn from an amazing Asheville based artist, Grace Carol Bomer.  Her work with Cold Wax and Oil paint has completely informed my process...

The Bolts and Blooms series has kept me busy, as Ive been focusing on the flowers that are produced when fruits and vegetables put forth seed.  For those of you who are new to gardening like me, you might be wondering what a bolt is.  A few months ago, I saw a Kale bolt for the first time and thought it was broccoli!

The week leading up to New Years day, greg and I were able to retreat with some dear friends at Mepkin Abbey - a Trappist monestary in SC.  The 5 days were full of prayer, quietude, rest, and some art-making.


The landscape is breathtaking -- most notably, the beautiful Live Oaks which have been growing on the property for hundreds of years.  Their branches twist and bend and are are teeming with ferns and fo...

I prefer for my artwork to live safely in journals, sketchbooks, and the closet.  My creations feel very personal because they embody an entire process of decisions.  It feels strange and uncomfortable to quickly share a final product when there were so many layers that cover the decisions you'll never see unless you look very closely and ask many questions and really, really want to know. But still, there's no way to comm...
