Hey Y’all! Thanks for dropping in!


Sorry for the recent silence. I’ve been busy behind the scene creating content for my new project. I told you on my last blog post that I had a big announcement to make and I finally get to share that “Big News.” But before I get into that, I’d like to recap some recent events.


“4XTN” at Centennial Arts Center.


Excited about our opening reception.


We had a wonderful turnout for our opening reception for 4XTN at Centennial Arts Center in Nashville. The exhibit looks fantastic. For a smaller space the team at the center does a great job displaying the artwork and the large windows allow for plenty of natural light. If you haven’t had the opportunity to visit this show, you still have time. Our paintings will remain on display up until March 25, 2024. Please let me know if you make it. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the exhibit. Event details here: 4XTN

New Studio update.

I have Sheetrock!!

I’d love to say the new studio is almost done, but it’s still a few months from being completed. As usual in building, we’ve had a few setbacks with weather and supplies. Hopefully there will be some progress in the coming weeks and I’ll make sure to share some new photos at that point.


Hanging out with ET in Maryville, TN

My Sister made a visit Maryville and I decided we should get out and explore a bit. One of the treasures (that wasn’t food related) was “The Capitol Theatre.”

This place is amazing! From the outside it looks like an old time theater space, and on the inside it still has that vibe but its been restored to be used as an event space too. We were also told they had an 1920’s themed speak easy in some secret area of the building. I hope to get back soon and investigate that area.

Oh, I said it didn’t involve food, but attached to the event space is also an ice cream parlor that is full of old movie memorabilia. All sorts of collectibles including a start Wars Chewbacca, an ET, and a small replica of the Back to the Future DeLorean. If you’re ever in this neck of the woods I highly recommend dropping by.

The Big News!!


My process of transferring ink onto beeswax. This is a bee image that will be part of my upcoming workshop.

The Busy Bee!



If you’ve ever asked about me doing a workshop, here you go!

I am excited to share that I have been invited to be one of the 27 instructors for “Painting With Fire.”

This is an amazing online series of encaustic workshops where each instructor teaches their specific focus of the encaustic process. This will be the 4th season of workshops and I am so grateful that my process will be included.

The great thing about this program is that you will have access to all 27 instructors. Each week a new workshop is released and you have access to those workshops for one fee and they do not expire. Refer back to them as many times as you want.

Also, if you sign up early you will get a discount on your purchase!
