Hapeville Murals

With a friend between flights at the airport and not a lot of time, we had to find something close. Discovered the adorable hidden gem that is Hapeville, Georgia. Here’s a selection of new murals to share!

Nashville Murals

Another new city, another new collection of murals! I have so many from my recent trip to Nashville, but here are a few of my favorites. Nashville is a beautiful, musical, and colorful city. I can’t wait to go back for more!

Portraits of The Struts

You know I am a massive fan of UK rock band The Struts, and as I am headed to Nashville for a show in a couple days, I really felt compelled to do a little something for the band members. I found these great magnet-backed small canvas panels and thought they might be a nice way for a band on tour to keep up with a bit of art.

Art Gone Wild 2019 Paint Out Week

I’ve been selected for a third year for Zoo Atlanta’s Art Gone Wild fundraising art show! Paint out week was lovely, despite the rain – and great reunion seeing all of my AGW artist friends. The new rhinoceros hornbills, Bill and Nancy, were a hit with everyone! And Ros, my favorite king vulture, put on a great show for me. She will definitely be getting her own canvas this year. Here are some of my illustrations that have already gone to new homes during the week. Stay tuned for progress on the final pieces!

Studio Update!

How cute is this? I got a new desk and redid my studio area. I love it so much! It is the happiest place!

March Of Robots

I made a valiant effort to keep up with this social media-centered art challenge, but my work schedule got the best of me. Here are some of my favorite robot ink and watercolor illustrations I finished this month.

Art Gone Wild 2018 Final Pieces

I had a goal to paint five portraits, but in the end (with my busy work schedule), I only had time for four canvases. For a fun personal challenge, I went with an all bird theme, and I must say that my first time painting birds has me absolutley in love with the creatures. I had so much fun getting to know them and their unique behaviors and personalities! I’m excited to share my pieces for my second year as an Art Gone Wild artist for Zoo Atlanta!
