Mood Boards

I'm playing around with mood boards. While I want to make art that is relevant to my interests and pieces that clients can really connect with on some deeper level, it shouldn't be a bad thing to want your art to match your decor!

Here are a few looks I put together that I'm really digging.

Fancy Bohemian Bedroom: For when you love color, solitude, and good vibes. Relaxed, but with an edge. I adore that hot pink bed!

Serene Living Room: An open, airy space with the tiniest pop of color, using art work as a statement piece.

Modern Meets Gothic Bedroom: Indulgent, rich charcoal gray walls with lighter accessories. I see a coyote skull or taxidermy pheasant fitting nicely in this space.

I'm no interior designer, but some good advice I read once is that when you start with all pieces that you really love, that touch your heart in some way, everything in that space will eventually come together seamlessly. I hope that my paintings can be among those pieces that you truly love in your space.

Huge Announcement

It is with great excitement that I announce Eric has accepted the position of Art Instructor at Fultondale High School and we will be making the move to Birmingham, AL as soon as our house sells! I plan to work as a full-time artist and mother and will be leaving Memphis College of Art after nearly 9 years working there in various roles, from student to Admissions Counselor to Community Education Associate and Program Manager.

MCA and the Memphis community have been so instrumental to my time as an artist and business person and I cannot express enough gratitude to all of the people of the city, friends and colleagues and mentors who have helped me over the years. You know who you are. I couldn't have done it without you!

Memphis is hardly perfect, but we loved the hell out of living here. I plan to visit often. Please let me know if any of you ever need anything. Now I'm going to go cry, jump for joy and have a few more panic attacks while we frantically get everything ready for our move in the next few weeks! 😊

Studio Time

I've been rather negligent in my studio practice lately. With my full-time day job running a Summer Art Camp, balancing motherhood with other (secret for now!) things keeping me busy, I've had to place my energies elsewhere. 

I have two shows coming up: Potluck at the grand opening of the Crosstown Concourse building and Guitar as Art in Martin, TN. I'm creating a table scape for one (think The Dinner Party by Judith Butler) and I'm painting on a guitar for the other. Between those projects, I created three smaller works just to get my hand back in.

I had a studio visit from the talented galleries and exhibitions director, Melissa Farris and I'm trying to find the time to start a new series for my Fall collection while finding homes for the remaining pieces in the Spring/Summer collection. Don't forget that those works are only available until August 1st!

I also turned 27 on the tenth, which is tripping me out just a little. I'll be 30 soon! 

I will have some very big news to share in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

Ameriprise Mini-Show

Come on out tomorrow night (Friday, June 30th) to the historic South Main Arts District to see a mini-show of mine and Eric Quick's at the Ameriprise Financial space at 465 S. Main. By mini-show, I mean that there's only three paintings :)

While you're there, you can also check out my show in the salon up the spiral staircase in Stock & Belle a few blocks away.

Have a great weekend!
