bold-greece-wedding-invitations

A wedding in Greece…oh yes indeed.  Add to that, a location that seems untouched by the generations and lives out its days much like it had maybe 80 years ago. {Oh my lovely.} Imagine setting an intimate table for 12 or 15 amidst the sunshine of the coast pouring itself into every nook and cranny.  The warm breezes swirl around you and the sky’s blue color is almost blinding but somehow in the most delightful way.  This scene, these thoughts are what inspired our contribution here.  Bold blooms and reserved but highly textural painted details set apart these two distinct stationery […]

peach-watercolor-pattern-bhldn

So when an artist is asked to paint for a well known brand, it’s pretty exciting.  Late last year our friends at Plum Pretty Sugar came to me with an idea and today I am so honored to share the fruits of this idea! {BHLDN carries an exclusive collection of Bridesmaid and Flower Girl Robes from Plum Pretty Sugar and now one of our watercolor pieces is part of this collection!} We worked through about 6 different pattern options in various palettes but landed on what we call our Peach Peony Garden pattern. {Have a closer look at the pattern!}

We’re not matched yet and for those of you not familiar with adoption lingo, we haven’t yet met our destined birthmom, but we are praying to meet her soon! The Hubby and I decided early in this process that we wanted to be prepared.  We decided that preparing a nursery and proceeding with traditional celebrations like a baby shower were important to us. {Many may not understand our decision or think we’re “jumping the gun” so to speak but we decided […]

the-greenbrier-artistic-inspiration

The Greenbrier in White Sulfur Springs, West Virginia was a dream come true.  Just as I imagined, stepping through the doors of the grand entrance was much like stepping back in time.  As An Artist at The Greenbrier I felt like I was walking hallowed halls.  Grand lives had been lived in these spaces and finally I had become a small part of the spirit of The Greenbrier. I literally spent four days walking the property, lingering in every room, peeking into ballrooms and sketching while perched on countless overstuffed, floral print chairs.  I went outside once friends, just once.  […]
