Show Pics are In!

The show was a success! Thank you to all who came out to see us on Sunday- we were honored to see so many people come out- especially on World Cup Sunday. Both sets of our parents deserve a huge thanks for making cookies and setting up and tearing down and for being our biggest fans and also investing countless hours and dollars scooting us to art lessons and hanging less than amazing art on their walls for so many years (siblings, you rock for coming out too). We wanted a really fun, laid back atmosphere for this show and with "Summer in Memphis" as the theme, it all quickly came together with hot dogs, beer, a popcorn machine, and air conditioning. Yes, AC is the key element to enjoying summer in Memphis, and WKNO kindly provided lots of it. A HUGE shout out to our friends at WKNO- Sally, Terri, Amy, Kacky and so many more who make this an amazing place to be!!!

Show paintings will be hitting our sites in a few days after we take it all down. Be on the lookout!

I'm headed to Salt Lake City today to ALT Summit! I couldn't be more jazzed. I managed to win a ticket to this awesome event and cannot wait to meet so many wonderful creatives, swap ideas, and hear from two of my favorite people to follow, Martha Stewart and Joy Cho! Can't wait to share what I learn! So I'll be back when the day is new and I'll have more ideas for you, And you'll have things you'll want to talk about. I . will . too...

Client Work: "The World is Your Oyster"


Friends are the most fun to paint for! I've known Lindsey since college days where we met in an Anthropology class. Her parents commissioned "The World is Your Oyster" in a 20" x 20" for her birthday and she opened this last weekend. Happy birthday to my sweet friend!!
