A snippet from the series I’ve been hard at work on ... “Dance In Chaos” with @ericbenjaminart coming in September! 📷 @joseezurita #bellowsxbenjamin #kiahannbellowsart
Wyoming Landscape, so pretty.
A moment. In the studio.
Spent a few days in Wyoming visiting family, it’s always so refreshing-I feel like I could dive into the sky and landscape. But more than that, soaking up time with family + time away from electronics and work is incredibly life giving & im so thankful for that.
This new body of work is all about the interactions of color. Complementary colors bouncing off one another making vibrant experiences for the eye... I’m excited!
Exciting News... my next show is with Eric Benjamin @artandlightgallery !!I’ve known Eric since I was in College, stumbled into his studio during @macartscouncil Open Studios one year and was completely star struck by his love of Color, a prominent commonality in our work. Fast forward a few years and can’t be more excited to work with him to bring Greenville some lively Abstract Landscapes! September 7th!
I’ve gotta start every piece by being comfortable + setting myself up for success. Sometimes that means getting up early & going for a swim, maybe sleeping an extra hour, rearranging my studio, or just leaving the mess and working on the floor ;) it’s different every day but I’ve found when I do this, good things transpire 🌱 📷 @jonstegengamedia
Who else had a Tee Pee like this? It became my permanent residence in the summers growing up... (the few hours I wasn’t in the pool) - think green hair ;)
My Mom came out one Day and I had painted all over it ... she was thrilled 😁🙄
Today’s Inspo: @surfshackbook by @ninafreudenberger @brittanyambridge and @editatlarge ...
“Pretty In Pink”, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles. Who else was as in Love with Molly Ringwald movies as my sister and I growing up? I remember these specific few years we couldn’t watch enough - such good memories! I’m not sure why these colors in this series have sparked a sensory response taking me back ... but how great was her pink prom dress? 😁
“Blush Series” now Available @artandlightgallery
A full day of painting in the studio is the only thing on the schedule today, no errands or meetings, or or or ...and I’m thrilled because the next show is right around the corner! Mark your Calendar for Friday Sept 7th, it’ll be here in Greenville, Landscapes but with a bit of a twist this time. More details to come ... 💫 photo by @eliwarrenphoto
Horizon Line... the best part
Some of my favorite tools of the trade. I usually use pallet knife’s for really packing on the texture and under layers of my paintings, especially around the horizon line in landscapes, .. if I’m not using my hands! And it’s probably one of the most satisfying things about creating my landscape pieces.
The summer always feels like a whirlwind, and this one has been no different. But I’ve been blessed to cherished time in between, here and there, with family and friends. -There are still multiple pieces available from my recent Blush Series for those of you interested. But for now.... back to work with the texturie Landscapes!
Loving this corner of @artandlightgallery today. @teresa_roche_art does the most beautiful job curating daily life. Pictured, “He made her Blush”, from the latest series. Tap for sources.
From the pretty In Pink Series, thought these colors were suiting for these warm summer days ...
Really packing on the paint, gooey texture (intentionally!!)As my professors from college used to say ;) is so satisfying.
A close up of “He made her Blush” 30”x48”, swipe right for the full piece.
“Pretty In Pink” mixed-media on board, framed 🍦.
“Mint and Rose Quartz” 42”x42” from the latest collection. These colors are spiking my craving for a Grapefruit Mojito on this sizzling summer day here is SC, Cheers!

I usually zoom through my day jumping from task to task, today I made a point to stop and have some meaningful conversations with fellow small business owners, and it was so fulfilling. Thankful to @eliwarrenphoto for always cracking jokes & getting a natural laugh out of me ... even if that means choking on my coffee! @optimal_artist @thevillagegrind

These paintings I’ve been working on lately feel like such a departure from what I’d been doing - but all so similar at the same time. Lighter, softer colors - but the same composition...and it feels so good to switch it up. Works on wooden canvas and framed paper pieces will be released next week. . . . .
