I am really excited about the shows I’m participating in over the next few months! First up is this Saturday at West Elm Birmingham at The Summit. I will have lots of new smaller works on watercolor paper that will fit perfectly in their awesome ready made frames. In February my work will be in Atlanta for Trinity Spotlight on Art. In March I will be traveling to lovely Fairhope, Alabama to be a part of The Eastern Shore Outdoor Art Show. In April I will be at the Mountain Brook Art Association’s Spring Art Show at Crestline Elementary. At the end of April I will be traveling to Nashville to participate in The Harding Show.
Thanks to all of my customers & friends for supporting of my artwork. I appreciate you so much!!

If you need some art for the holidays here is the lineup! All of these events will feature multiple Birmingham artists so buy local this holiday season!

At this show you can purchase my 30x paintings for $30 each (a portion of the proceeds goes to a Woodlawn High-school senior scholarship)

Thank you to everyone who voted on my painting! I actually did not win by public votes, I was an editors pick (but again, thank you for voting anyways😉!). I have long admired Minted & how their website is so sharp looking. When they added art to their already amazing paper line up I was thrilled. Really, you have to go click on the link I’m about to share just so you can see all the different framing options on my print…SO cool!! Click here & go play!!

In talking recently with a friend we mentioned how many artists there are in Birmingham that we don’t know. At that point I set out to find new artists in our area. Through the beauty of the hashtag I searched & found #birminghamart….lots of it! I really never jumped on board w/ the whole hashtag thing & realized how important it is in connecting people. I found the 30x30x30 project on Instagram through searching Birmingham art. I contacted them & asked if I could be a part of their show/ mission. They graciously said “yes!” & so the process began. They provided me with 30 wood panels to create whatever I wanted. It was very freeing to have the material, size & quantity already decided for me…all I had to do was paint! The purpose of the 30x30x30 project was exactly what I was looking for…a way to connect with new people, get out of my comfort zone a bit & raise scholarship money for a Woodlawn High School senior pursuing a degree in a creative field. The show will be Nov 7 & 8 at 2threefive Motion Picture Studio in Woodlawn. Below is a picture of my first layer of paint & the next is the finished product.

It is always such a pleasure for a past customer to stop by & want to share how they framed their paintings or where they ended up hanging their paintings they purchased from me. Here are a few examples:

I am having fun exploring new colors, sizes & mediums this summer. The colors outside are really inspiring my color palette- I can’t help but use all the beautiful colors I see! I am also preparing for a new show in Atlanta in August, Piedmont Park Art Festival.

I snapped some quick pictures of new small paintings. {Disclaimer: I am very jealous of artists who take awesome pics for their blogs. It makes them look very fancy & professional. But I’m posting terrible pics anyways—cheers & applaud!}
