Vaccinated, masked and outside. Come see my flowers, me and my fabulous artisans and designers. It's been a long time. The number one phrase I have heard this last year is, "I was looking at your website...." and that is why I haven't sent out a message in a while. So if you are local, come see me now! I have new art and lots of new gifts at affordable prices. So new, pics have not been posted, but, I promise you will love them. And as always, I only ordered enough for this show so make sure not to miss out. Acrylic blocks, glass plates and more. Oh! I will have all new note cards. Highly requested grouping. Get yours before they sell out!
I will be hosting 4 other designers / artists that I selected personally. You will love everything!
It's been over a year since we have seen each other.
Come and see me!!!!

Happy Sunday! Hope all is well with everyone. I am just blessed with the positives of this pandemic. The key phrase I heard in the first 3 months of this SIP was, "I was looking at your website..." It has kept me busy with all kinds of commissions and then this, the largest size project to date, a wall mural inspired by my butterfly kaleidoscope paintings.
This project will be revealed in October when my client makes it's formal presentation. Inspired by what a butterfly represents - transformation, change into something beautiful and then with what my kaleidoscopes represent - togetherness, flying up towards greatness, spreading our wings was the foundation for the mural. Working with the existing wall color, I came up with a color scheme and presented my client with a digital rendering of what I was seeing for the mural. Luckily, I was able to enlist help from a friend who has a great heart. Some of you know the struggles I have had with my mom and how she, too, used to paint. Because she was visiting and with me at the job site everyday, I encouraged her to add her mark on the mural, too!
Videos of the process are on my facebook and instagram sites. Please let me know what you think. Would love to hear your feedback or if you have any ideas on where to take this!
Doing this mural brought so much joy to me. Watch my instagram in October for when I am able to reveal who the mural is for. All of those details will make so much sense and complete the story!

Happy Early Spring!
All is well! Painting away! I have been in a good routine of painting every morning, Monday-Friday. I love it. This morning routine is quite helpful to me. After I paint, I feel so happy and am ready to take care of other business like my website sales, restocking scarves at local boutiques and meeting with clients. My house, however, is getting pretty cluttered. Another day for that. Above are two portrait commissions. An art collector saw my website and said she fell in love with my style and since she did not own any watercolors, she hired me!
I was going to go on to challenge myself to paint a face everyday, but, other commissions and work came in. Above is a painting from a photo someone sent in for my self challenge. I would love to continue this self-challenge.
What I have been working very hard on is a collection for Cerulean Gallery's grand re-opening in Dallas. Cerulean has always represented me, but, now they will be back in Dallas conveniently located in Snider Plaza!!!! I will have new pieces that I have not been posting. It is a growing series. Some little sneak peaks have been posted in my Instagram stories. I am excited to hear the feedback from you! I have not had a local art show in a while. If you have been before, you know how fun they are. A big social, see your peeps, have a glass of wine and check out the new art. So please come see me and the other 5 female artists at

Happy Summer!!!! I never thought that I would EVER have a sale. I had heard on one of the Artists Helping Artists by Leslie Saeta interviews that art does not need to go on sale. It is not like art goes out of style. And I have also been influenced by the decluttering trend, recently, too. One of my friends told me she likes to bless someone else with the clothes she no longer wants and to make room in her closet for new pieces.
That last idea combined with my latest instagram post (July 27, 2019) made me want to have a sale and put as much of my art out there into the world. Make room in my studio for new inventory, new paintings, maybe even in a different style. I am not sure about another medium as I just LOVE the experience of painting in watercolor. My latest instagram post made me have an epiphany that I am sooooooo excited about.
While it had seemed that I had gone off into the scarf business and making jackets and not painting, it turns out that my paintings are out in the world being displayed on the backs of my collectors!!! Without seeming arrogant, this makes me so happy to know that my two love paintings, in particular, are being seen by so many people. I hope when people see these jackets with "love" painted that maybe it will influence them to be loving to their fellow brother and sister and act with grace. Of course, I absolutely love my other scarf designs on the jackets, too. Hopefully, those images bring a smile and some beauty to those that see them. From the pink peony painting to the dogwood tree painting and then customizing each jacket with my collectors wishes, each jacket is a unique piece of art.
That inspired me to share my works on paper at a sale price so that they can go out into the world and be seen by others and even given as gifts. If you want to have early viewing of the sale items, please send me your email address. I don't sell or share my contacts and I only send out 2 emails a year, plus this one about the sale.
