Texture. A close up of some new work currently on display in Charlotte.
Since i was little i’ve always loved rearranging interior spaces. Moving around furniture in my bedroom was a DREAM, it was a treat when my mom would let me rearrange- Mom always did this in our house, the couch/ tables had a new spot almost monthly. It makes your space feel so fresh and clean and open to new possibilities… My mind starts racing, in a good way .. Getting lost in beautiful coffee table design books is something I adore and juices up this creative corner in my head. I love this scene with @evokethespirit from @surfshackbook .

Detail shot of recent piece “Mission Viejo” - one of my fav places.
My very favorite things that make a house a home : plants + art. My sister gifted me with a bunch of plants when she moved cross country- blame her for the obsession it’s turned into. As for collecting art; it was scary to take the plunge, my first big art purchase I couldn’t pay for in one lump sum. So I paid for it in installments over a year. It was one of the kindest things another artist could do for me & one of the best investments I’ve ever made! Did you know if you’re in the same boat as I was I take installments? Super simple. 1. 50% down upfront. 2. You make monthly payments w/ 0% interest for a year and I’ll hold your piece for you ✨ it’s never too early or too late to start collecting✨
Studio Scenes 💥
A peek at the tallest piece I’ve done to date. “Snorkeling on Christmas” 3’x8’ from my collaborative show with @ericbenjaminart . This title sounds so dreamy but in reality every Christmas break in college we would leave like the day after Christmas and head somewhere tropical for a few weeks of grueling Christmas training. It was beautiful and terrible. We would usually do one fun team event a trip- this particular year was snorkeling. These were some of the mosssstt challenging times, but also so fun and rewarding, times I was pushed so far I learned a lot about myself and the awesome thing is I’ve been able to implement that work ethic into my small biz. All thanks to the wonderful coaches and mentors I’ve had along the way. . ...I think when the whole slew of college swim team jumped off the boat in one fell swoop it scared all the fishies away - but I still remember the clear colorful waterscape like it was yesterday. Dreamy... available @artandlightgallery
Morning light💡, a peek inside our home ...
“Lake Tahoe Shoreline” 60”x48” - this is just a snippet of the piece// and currently Available through @artandlightgallery . Inspired by time at Lake Tahoe.
Thinking about this body of water gets me all excited, it’s so flippin’ cold - exhilarating& literally takes your breath away. So clear and clean, taking on the color of the Sky day to day 💎🔵💧.. @eliwarrenphoto
An install from a few years back, it’s fun to wake up one day and notice small changes in your work✨ thank the @angzion_photographer for this bomb pic
I spend a lot of time sketching, fine tuning the “big idea”, sometimes getting hooked on a particular part of the landscape- definitely influenced by my surroundings and change of seasons- the marks and colors tend to translate into my large scale pieces- my last “Big idea” has influenced my work for about 3 years now... 📷 @humanizingthroughstory
Hopping on this Friyay to say howdy 👋🏻to new friends on IG Wonderland. A few inside scoops about me and in turn, my work. .. I was born out west and have lots of family there, & grew up on the east coast. Hence the rawness of the west coast texture, combined with lush colors of the east in my paintings. 🌱🌊🌵Also, H2o. I’ve swim competitively since I was potty trained & feel most at home in the water, it’s my zen, my happy place. Blue and green has a way of showing up in my work. Having a Architect for a dad and a Designer for a mom I grew up noticing all the details .... ✨ @erinpotterphotography
A corner of the studio from today’s work- ive enjoyed spending more time on the mark making in this one. I have a few shows coming up end of October and beginning of November I’m excited to share about, this piece is in the works toward that (you can subscribe to my newsletter through website to get more info ⭐️) after being on the west coast for a few days I’m all jazzed up and ready to work - I always want to rearrange my studio and add a few more plants when I return home 🤩esp. after being around succulent galore - - you may be seeing a lot of green in my new work- what’s your fave houseplant?🌵🌱🌴🌾
