Love commission

This dreamy fanciful landscape, was my latest commission. The clients wanted something that represented their relationship. They fell in love on their first date, on a hot-air balloon ride in their homestate New Hampshire. Honeymooned in Hawaii, have Paisley engraved wedding bands, requested their favorite flowers, hibiscus and plumeria, and love long sunny drives.

What a fun piece to make.  I really love interpreting ideas,  memories, and symbolic imagery, and translating them into a painting.     Let me help you memorialize a special time, place, memory, or someone.

A keepsake that lasts forever.  

Artist prints

My dear friend and collaborator Kristyn Platt of Hunton Design, shot some photos to illustrate what you can do with your prints after you pull out the (conviently perforated) prints, from our 2018 Calendar

The prints are standard 5"x7" size, slap a frame on them or send them as a postcard! 

There’s still time to order to gift in time for Christmas, takes two days to ship. Order by Tuesday the 19th to be safe, or Wednesday the 20th if you’re a risk taker! XO

Hello, it's me.

My gracious friend of Malorrie Anne Photography came and took photos of me doing my thing in my home studio.

During the photo shoot we were both balancing our first and foremost job of playing momma to our babes, whilst trying to do our art. I'm not going to lie it was a bit of chaos, distraction, & disorder, but Malorrie managed to do a beautiful job & I am so grateful.

Malorrie has also taken our family portraits on a couple of different occasion, as well as photographed some of my close friends weddings. She is such a calm and easy going pressence & a natural talent. Look her up if you're in the need of any photos!
