pink-peony-watercolor-pattern

I was asked to create a series of artwork by our friends at Snippet and Ink.  Inspired by poignant love quotes I developed five new watercolor patterns to express the words of each poet. {Such an honor to be part of Words to Love By for Snippet and Ink!} Notice I also tried my hand at some hand lettering – really just a fancier version of my handwriting! We’re often asked by couples to help them discover lovely words, quotes, scripture and the like, that express the power of a love story.  It can be difficult to find the right […]

Now the Hubby and I live in Pennsylvania on a larger plot of land his parents gifted us.  We built our […]

watercolor-anemone

I’ve said it before, so bear with me friends… {painting is my heartbeat} In the early years of Momental it was difficult to find time to paint just for me;whatever was inspiring me most as I had no employees and did all the work by my lonesome.  Things have changed a bit now and I collaborate with the most amazing team that allows me to do what I do best. In these cold, winter months I tend to be a bit of a home body – where a night of painting is just as enjoyable as anything else I can […]
