My Best Friends Wedding

in Art Exhibits & Events, New Artwork .

Working on wedding art is one of my favorites! The client (bride) usually knows exactly what she wants and I just help bring it to life. When my best friend and roommate for almost 6 years, Emily, got engaged, I was thrilled (and hoping) she wanted me to do the art! Perhaps you already guessed it, it's a beach wedding. Even more exciting is the reception is at the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. How cool is that!? We started with the wedding logo that ties in the two main colors, firecracker coral and a light green. The wedding itself will take place in Beaufort, not far from ..

May Cover Art for Skirt Magazine

in New Artwork .

Happy May, the month that's all about moms! Naturally, the theme for this month's skirt! magazine is just that, motherhood. While I myself am not a mother, I am blessed to have an amazing mom of my own and 2 wonderful grandmothers. This illustration was inspired by one of my grandmothers, Granny, who just passed away in March on the first day of Spring. She lived a full and wonderful 92 years on this earth. I tried to incorporate a bit of her in this piece. The gladiolus in the background are from the immense gladiolus garden she grew and loved. She also had a large fruit and veggie gard..

Spring has Sprung

in New Artwork .

The first day of spring is here! I can't believe it. I thought this day would never come! I've had cabin fever since January. What can I say, I'm a warm weather girl so my tolerance for the cold is very limited. Some people view New Years as the time for hope and renewal, but for me it's springtime! This time of year creates the ultimate inspiration around every corner, the reawakening of the world around me. The motivation for this yellow dressed beauty came from the Elie Saab spring 2018 runway show. The collection included a lot of bright primary colors which I absolutely love. Could ..

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..
