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.  […]

Wanted to take some time today to introduce you with the Momental team.  It’s hard to put into words what they mean to me, but for us the word team doesn’t quite cut it.  Recently I gathered everyone for a afternoon retreat to celebrate,  just because.  Our team is a group of dynamic women and men who make me laugh everyday.  I’m proud to have my Dad as the newest member of the group and of course my Hubby Adam who ensures this ship sails like clockwork. From left, top row: Jess K., Amy, Kelley, Linda (Mom), Erin, Jill, Me, […]

Been thinking a lot about heart lately.  Not the actual beating organ mind you, but the strength and fierceness we seem to equate with the heart.  Somewhere between happiness, fear and folly comes our heart of hearts, our gut and instinct, our spirit – all wrapped up into one simple word we use almost everyday.  Steve Jobs said, and I paraphrase, that if you do something with “heart” you are limitless.  If you connect with someone’s heart you can soar. Jill Thomas, a wedding photographer who has experienced inexplicable grief in the last year, has found a way to see […]

Summer is in full swing and somehow this year Summer seems that much sweeter.  As many of you know we had an insane Spring working with tons of amazing couples including Sean Parker and Alexandra Lenas.  Not taking many breaks for the better part of this year I’ve just now begun settling into to a bit of a slower pace.  Taking time to paint and breathe a bit more than I had become accustomed to over the last months. Revisiting an old favorite from college, gouache has made its way back into my palette…gouache is essentially a milky watercolor if […]

It’s so good to be home.  This phrase captures my thoughts today exactly; it’s good to be home, in my studio, picking flowers out of my garden and simply sitting still for a moment.  As you may have noticed, from my radio silence on this blog, the last month has been, quite literally the most overwhelming-in-a-good-way experience of our careers.  In the last month, we’ve all grown a lot, learned the true meaning of team and learned how to function well on less than 5 hours of sleep a night – well let’s admit, the Momental Girls with children already […]
