Description: Celebrating the colorful beauty of the everyday world and ordinary lives
Ever since I was a child growing up in Georgia, I have enjoyed finding art and beauty in the Everyday – in people, places and objects usually regarded as commonplace or imperfect. I found it in my grandmother’s gardens, Sunday church dresses, our food and the old toys my grandmother saved for me when I came to visit. After working several years as an attorney, I rediscovered my passion for creating. I paint with watercolor and sometimes with gouache and colored pencil. When I paint, my mission is to capture as much color and feeling from the subject as possible. I paint anything from shiny vintage toys to juicy strawberries and glowing honey. Although "everyday" and "ordinary", I find these objects to be beautiful and fascinating. All of us live our lives in the Everyday. I paint in order to celebrate and amplify the small, everyday moments of our lives.
