The FLORA plant shop in East Nashville is always stocked with an amazing inventory + is a picture perfect space for any plant lover. When I approached owners, Kate + Kirby, about having an art show in their store, they were enthusiastic about the idea, and extremely supportive when it came to giving me the opening I had hoped for. 

My goal was to provide a different kind of art show. I envisioned an inviting, casual setting without the usual stark, white walls of most galleries. With paintings displayed throughout the store, some on easels and others propped up on benches and tables among the plants, the work sat in harmony among the leaves and gave the show a very warm + welcoming feel.

The afternoon was everything I could have hoped for. Friends + neighbors popped in to walk through the space, talk with one another, sip some wine and discuss my new works with me. I loved getting everyone's feedback and personal interpretations.

Big thanks again to the ladies at Flora - I cannot wait to collaborate with them again! xo

THE DURHAM HOTEL

I love traveling to + exploring new areas - especially when that travel involves a place like The Durham Hotel (Durham, NC). The moment we pulled up to unload our bags, it was obvious that booking this particular hotel was a smart move. Its striking exterior has a sleek, impressive design and the interiors are fully decked out in MCM decor. When we got to our room, we found thick, hooded robes and white slippers waiting for us (sooo cozy), along with a tray full of local snacks and chocolates. After a full day of eating, sipping and checking out some local shops downtown, we returned to our room to find the lights on low, chocolates on our pillows and classical music softly playing from the ihome sitting on the nightstand.  So many fun little touches, which made this a really hard place to leave! With a super clean room, relaxing stay, and such a friendIy, accommodating staff - we just can't wait to go back.

Just got back from spending 10 days in LA! Though we both went to the west coast on work assignments, I wanted to use my free time on this trip as a way to photo journal some ideas for a new painting series. 

We mostly took walks in the Silver Lake + Larchmont neighborhoods, grabbing coffees + hitting recommended spots for tacos and sushi, but I made it a point to be mindful of my surroundings along the way. The amount of fun, colorful palettes + the natural art that blends among the west coast landscape was incredible. I made a conscious effort to embrace the bold colors and it just made me feel good. It was a highly inspiring experience!
