What a fortnight it has been! A roller coaster of emotions with the uncertainty of where Hurricane Florence was going to go… would she get stronger or weaker? She ended up being quite kind to our area (near Raleigh) - we’re most thankful that we got no flooding, no prolonged power outage. But she wreaked havoc on some coastal areas with storm surge, and caused catastrophic flooding near rivers with her relentless rain. Our hearts go out to those who will be recovering for a long time to come. // I’d been hunting around for a title for the painting shown above - now I know it has got to be “Florence”!Read More
Many thanks to all who came to the Village Art & Craft Fair in Asheville last weekend! We were never so glad for an incorrect weather forecast as we were for this show! We were supposed to get showered and thunderstorms throughout the weekend but didn't get a single drop. // Next up for me is a one-night Popup at Golden Belt Studios in Durham NC, as part of Durham's usual 3rd Friday ArtWalk, on August 17th. // I’ve added bracelets to my jewelry lineup!Read More

My current project is getting ready for the Village Art and Craft Fair in Biltmore Village, Asheville NC on August 4th and 5th. This is my biggest show of the year, and it's always a scramble in the few weeks prior to make enough inventory!Read More
Finding titles for abstract paintings can be one of the hardest things! Sometimes they tell me their names right away, but other times they're totally silent. To me, anyway. That’s the case with this pair 🤔.
Turquoise-teal-purple is one of my favorite color palettes and I like how these turned out, especially with the gold highlights... why don’t you help me name them!Read More
I love crossing things off my to-do list. Well this isn't totally crossed off but at least it's in progress... I've started listing my hand painted pendant necklaces and earrings on my website in my new Jewelry Shop! One-of-a-kind jewelry makes a great gift, and for a limited time, shipping is free in the US!Read More
