It's been a while! I haven't made a post since Nov of 2023 and wow a lot has changed! For starters I changed schools and am now teaching high school at a small charter school. I went to grad school and now have a Masters in Art from Kennesaw State University. This May I completed the GaTAPP program so I will finally have my teacher's certificate. I started painting live events which has been one of my favorite new things to do. In 2022 we welcomed our second son to this crazy life and as of today I have a 7 year old who is finishing up 1st grade and 15 month old who is still refusing to walk. David and I finally married in January of 2022 after 11 years of being together.
This year has so far been a great one for my career in art. In early January I completed a wildlife mural in Pelham, Georgia. I was notified last month that I will be nationally published later this fall for my painting Georgia Citrus. That same day I received my acceptance email for a show that has been for years one of my biggest career goal. Because I have less time to paint I rarely do commissions anymore but have been focusing on originals and smaller mixed media works. I've started to dabble back in sculptural ceramic pieces and have dived into mixed media art. Summer starts in one week for us and I hope to spend the next two months creating art and making memories.
