A common denominator between gardening, mercy, and love What is Timeless? I asked a group of friends to look at my newest painting so they could help me come up with a title for it. I wanted the name to convey a character trait they admire. And with Mothers’ Day on the horizon, I suggested […]
When at a loss for what to do… 1. Do what you know HOW to DO. 2. Remember what you KNOW to be TRUE. 3. Find something NEW for YOU. I like to explore ALL my options. So much so, that it has become a joke in our family. If you want something researched like a […]
“Expecting” is one of many paintings I created during the summer of 2016. But this one was special. I painted it with a friend in mind. A friend who was expecting. Expecting. Hoping. Dreaming. But with a heart that was understandably guarded. A heart that had been on this same course before, but disappointed many times.

Here’s a painting I created in February, called Hedge Apples. It was for a contest for Countybank. They were looking to purchase 12 paintings for the lobbies of two of their Greenville locations. THIS particular piece wasn’t chosen, but I DID enter three of them… Below are some photos showing the Great Hedge Apple Adventure. […]
I wish I COULD say I had something to do with this. Instead, this beautiful design on my refrigerator is the artistic handiwork of our 8-year-old son. I wish I were the kind of mom that said “Hey… let’s get out those new magnets and make something cool together.” I didn’t do or say anything […]
