On Island Time

in New Artwork .

Can we be on island time ALL the time? Living on the coast perhaps I already am and just don't know. Certainly the South in general is pretty close with our slower pace of life. Even if your life isn't exactly "slow", looking at a painting of a peaceful scene can evoke some of that tranquil emotion, right?  While I've been focusing more on my watercolor illustrations lately, I still take oil painting commissions if it feels right and I'm excited about it. These are a few that I was super excited about! Of course the settings being on Kiawah and Sullivan's Island made them that much mor..

Cover Art for September issue of Skirt! magazine

in New Artwork .

September 1st is here and I can finally share the cover art for Skirt! magazine! When I was approached by Skirt! to do their September cover art, naturally I was elated! Any women's magazine for this month is a big deal for fashion! The illustration that immediately popped in my mind was King Street. A bunch of fashion forward friends joyfully strolling down the street, bags in tow and hair on point. I started compiling some of my favorite trends of this season to see what would look best. High wasted pants being a must and of course some timeless plaid with a ruffle collar. My pers..

My Health Journey Part II

in New Artwork .

In Part I, My Health Journey, I talked about my health path. Here, I'd like to share in more detail some things that I focus on that have helped.... 1. STRESS - I never realized what a big factor this was until I had a health issue and this is the most important. Chronic stress is such an issue in our modern society and most of the time people don't even realize it. When we are stressed, our bodies release cortisol and other stress hormones. If you are constantly in this state, the cortisol gets out of control and eventually starts wrecking havoc on your organs. Being more aware of your str..

My Health Journey Part I

in New Artwork .

My Health Journey 2016 was quite the year for me. I'll start by saying that my health was an aspect of my life that I took for granted (like many of us do). I have always been exceptionally healthy and prided myself on it a bit. Very seldom sick, in good shape, and I ate what I (and most Americans) thought of as a good diet. Truth be told, I felt slightly invincible. Diagnosed with an Autoimmune Disease However, that all changed a few years back when I was diagnosed out of the blue with an autoimmune disease. If you aren't sure exactly what that means, in a nut shell it's when your bo..

Sun, Sand, and Summer

in New Artwork .

As of last week the summer season has officially started! I couldn't be more happy. I'm a summer baby, so that means the heat and I are besties. I'll take 95+ degree weather anyday (or everyday for that matter) of the week. Naturally, this season is full of plenty of beach and surf time hence this illustration. Perhaps she's walking back from a nice barefoot beach stroll. Flowers in tow. Tossled hair. Because don't we always look this flawless when walking on the beach?  Happy beginning of summer!  xoxo, ..

Girls Weekend and Equestrian Art

in Art Exhibits & Events, New Artwork .

What's better than playing with ponies? Playing with ponies with friends! A few weekends ago I was in Ocala, Florida celebrating the upcoming wedding of my bestie, Ashley Cline, owner of EquestrianStylist.com. Her family has a horse farm there so a bunch of us girls met for some rest/relaxation surrounded by green pastures, ponies, and a bunch of other furry friends. I was in heaven! We played with chickens (yes, chickens), laid by the pool, and had a photoshoot dressed in a our best derbyesque attire. New York City milliner, Christine A. Moore, sent Ashley some gorgeous hats and Ash's mom, Ka..
