Recent Client Work: Wedding Gifting

Y'all.  I'm getting back into oils, my first love, and it is soul cleansing! This painting was such a fun piece and I hope to do more of these in the future. My friend Sarah wanted a special gift for her sister's upcoming nuptials and commissioned this piece of the two of them when they were engaged. I really enjoyed getting to play with the different textures and perspectives of the tall grass contrasting with the Chicago skyline. I cannot wait for them to open this! Congratulations you two!

Monday Morning Indulgence: Lovin' on Some Fall Weather

The mornings and evenings have a chill to them. Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks. I'm seeing mums everywhere. We busted out the hot chocolate last week on a chilly evening. Our spoiled coon hound now requires a blanket at night. Fall has come to Memphis!! I'm busting out my pumpkin recipes and long sleeves and getting ready for boot weather! Is anyone feeling as nostalgic as I am with this weather? Autumn, we love you!

Art Show Sneak Peek!!

I'm excited to give you a sneak peek into what I've been working on for my show coming up in November! I'll be at WKNO following David's gorgeous display of Memphis watercolors back in August. The show is titled "Near and Far" featuring churches from all over the globe- some near and some far and some right here in Memphis! Mark down November 4th on your calendar for the show reception. I can't wait!

Recent Client Work

This was a recent piece for a friend and decorator, Lauren Hulet. Her mom just moved and she was looking for the perfect piece for her new living room as a house-warming gift. Working with the salmon, blue, and sea foam colors in her living room, we came up with this. Happy new abode-ing!!

Color Crush- Warm Neutrals

I just can't stop admiring the warm, neutral color palette in this gorgeous living space featured in Architectural Digest. It's warming up my Friday- getting me ready for the weekend! We've got some Art on Tapping at the Dixon tonight and some lovely garage organizing on our plate for the next few days. What about you- any great weekend plans? Happy Friday!

It's Wedding Invite Time!

A very dear friend of mine is getting married in a few months and I had the honor of designing her wedding invites and programs. Abby was so fun to work with on this project being that she is one of my favorite people to hang out with and also the most laid back bride I have ever encountered! She is going for an Anthropologie feel for her wedding and definitely wanted grey with pops of color on her invites. Other than that, I had full creative license and this is what we came up with!  These fun little ditties are centered around a modern design with the whimsical touch of an illustrated font and bride -n-groom. I'm so looking forward to her relaxed outdoor wedding complete with BBQ on the farm. A HUGE congratulations to Abby and Stephen. Can't wait til your big day!!

Monday Morning Indulgence: Small Space Luxe

Happy Labor Day Morning! I'm taking a moment to sip on some coffee while browsing through the new Joss and Main collection before we finish out a long weekend of some long awaited updates to our house. Is there drool and envy while browsing? Perhaps... Today they are featuring designer Tiffany Richey as curator with her focus on small spaces. I'm gleaning some serious inspiration for our tiny house. Check it out!
