Spirit Animal Series has Begun

in Art Studio, New Artwork .

It's finally feeling like fall in Charleston, so that means time for a new oil painting series. I've just begun on what might be my most favorite series of paintings ever. I call it my "Spirit Animal" series. The idea came about when my husband, Derek, and I were discussing what we thought our spirit animals would be. Derek, being an avid windsurfer who's always chasing the wind and waves, decided up a pelican, who love to let the wind catch their wings as they glide just above the water. For me, it was a bit more difficult. I adore all cats, from the typical house cat to those roaming the ..

Shooting African Wildlife

in New Artwork .

There's only one way to shoot African wildlife and that's with a camera! Every few months there seem to be photographs circulating the internet of American hunters proudly posing with their trophy kills. And every single time there is public backlash. The most recent being Texas huntress, Tess Talley, whose 2017 South Africa giraffe hunt photo went viral, creating a storm of attention. Many of these hunters, when interviewed, claim to be “surprised” by the negative response, including Tess, but why? I’d say it’s clear that the majority of Americans do not condone this type of murder. Not..

Springtime Yoga in Charleston

in New Artwork .

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Ok, I know that slogan usually goes for the Christmas season, but in my opinion there are two reigning champions for that title, Christmas and Spring! Both ever so magical in their own right and way. Spring time is all about new beginnings and growth. It's difficult to not feel optimistic when the world around you is bustling with new life! Marion Square, situated between two of the main vein streets in Charleston, Calhoun and King, is right in the middle of town. It's a spring time haven for those wanting to play fisbee, soccer, layout, picnic, or ..

Wedding Commission with Precious Pup

in New Artwork .

You might have noticed by now that I absolutely love animals! I’ve probably said it a time or two. They're also a common theme seen throughout much of my work, from illustrations to oils. That’s why I just love it when clients incorporate their furry ones in their illustration commissions. The most recent being sweet little guy, Jackson, who was honored with the role of ring bearer in this super sweet Hamptons wedding.  What's another reason why I adore this piece? That outfit! I just love illustrating the nontraditional wedding attire. Seriously, how gorgeous is that baby blue skirt a..

Mexican Wedding Illustration

in New Artwork .

What do donkeys, mariachi bands, and tequila necklaces have in common? They’re all part of a traditional Mexican wedding parade of course! Well, not necessarily of course because I had no clue about this until I was commissioned to do this wedding illustration. The couple, who live in San Miguel, Mexico, had just that, a traditional Mexican wedding. They paraded through the streets accompanied by their loved ones and all the appropriate festive paraphernalia. Also, typically seen during the procession (that wasn’t captured here) are giant wedding puppets. A quick google image search of “..

Charleston Single House Oil Painting

in New Artwork .

Oh, Charleston. You had me at "hello". I've lived in Charleston for over 14 years now and the beauty and charm of its architecture has never faded. So naturally when I was commissioned to paint this Charleston single house, I was delighted. I adore painting what is close to my heart. This piece was a Christmas present for a clients parents who recently bought a home in Charleston. Of course it was a surprise so I was unable to share the process on social media for fear the new recipients might stumble upon and recognize their lovely abode. The holidays have come and gone and I can now share..
