Small Collage Art

I am very excited to share this group of paintings that will be arriving to Bennett's Frames and Art Gallery in Greenville, South Carolina very soon!  To create this series, I took old paint palettes and white washed them for the large paper you see in the background.  I like how the paint reads through the white and slightly peeks out from underneath the whitewash.  Also, for me texture adds such dimension to the composition.  I then took other old paint palettes and cut and tore them up to create the flower arrangements.  Some of the dried paint naturally was in an organic floral shape, so this process works well for me.   The last step of the process is to...

Spanish Foods Series

I'm so excited about the first group of paintings that were created in Spain, the 'Spanish Foods' series. The group will be release on The Campbell Collective this Thursday, 10/22/20, at 8:30am EST.  To celebrate the release, I thought it would be fun to put out a big Spanish spread of the different foods we have been enjoying since moving to here.   Food has inspired the collection, and it is so easy to see why: everything tastes as good as it looks. I sprinkled some Aleia Roses in for the shoot as well since Aleia is what brought us to Spain.  I hope you enjoy a little taste of what is coming Thursday!  I hope you enjoy these as much...

Nests for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is quickly coming and this year the Mamas have put in their fair share of work.  I know that during this Covid-19 time, I've become a homeschool teacher, a short order cook, and constant entertainer.  My family better gift me well, and art is the best gift any time!! Here are some styled images of the nests in my home.  I hope you like them and gift one for your Mama this year!  Hope you enjoy these textural, fun little Robin's Nests!

New Works

Since quarantine has begun, I have just been trying to approach the canvas without any plans and see where the brush takes me.  It has more of an intuitive painting process- my favorite way to come to the canvas.  This has been a super stressful experience (for all of us!) and I'm so grateful to have my paintbrushes to carry me through it.  I do think this is some of my strongest work to date, so creative flow is one of the things many things I will be thankful for during this odd time.  I hope wherever you are, whatever you are doing, you are safe, healthy, finding joy in the small things, and trying to do something creative for yourself...

Angel Kids Project!

If you have been with me for a while, you know how much I adore Angels.  They have huge significance to me, and appear in my work over and over again.  I was approached by my daughter's school to develop an Angel Painting for an upcoming auction.  The school also wanted for each child to be present in the painting.  I decided to create an angel loosely based around some of the beautiful art that I had seen late last summer in Florence, Italy.  The Florentine masters painted angels with colorful wings, so that was a direction I went with for this piece.  And to incorporate each child into the work, I worked with them to make fingerprint 'stars' in...
