flower truck oil painting

Flower Truck

Two years ago, Chad and I spent a long weekend in Chattanooga, TN. As we waited outside a restaurant one morning for breakfast, I noticed beautiful bouquets of flowers sitting next to a bright, red delivery truck. It was parked right outside the restaurant doors, the perfect place to catch the attention of people passing […]

Painting Again

It’s been years since I’ve given oil paints a try and, even back then, I didn’t use them long enough to grow comfortable with them. But recently, I felt inspired to break them out and just paint something small. No pressure, just experimentation. I really loved the feel of painting on paper. 5.5 years ago, […]

Deep Dive: Cartecay Cowl

Silver Leaf Stamped Earrings

The Dark Cloud

I woke up with a dark cloud over my head this morning. It doesn’t happen often. But when it does, I don’t like it. I don’t like feeling negative one tiny bit. I had a hundred different things swirling in my mind. Things I needed to do. People I needed to contact. Things I didn’t […]

Sloth Jungle Pattern Collection

Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were peaceful and you’re starting 2019 feeling renewed. I want to follow up on my last post where I showed the sloth pattern design I made for a Spoonflower challenge. Well, afterward I made a full collection that’s now available in both my Creative Market and Spoonflower shops. […]
