Solo Exhibit at Enliten

I was invited to do a solo exhibit for Enliten Bakery in Provo for the month of April.
I really appreciated the opportunity because it gave me the needed push to paint more.
I love how my watercolors ended up matching the cool wall.

I love strong women and I love to paint them. I enjoyed adding stripes of blue to this painting to add interest. I also intentionally limited my color palette. 


Drips are a nice way to make a painting more expressive.


I think this is my most expressive watercolors yet. She's also one of my most popular it turns out.

I'm behind on posting here, so pardon me while a take a few days to catch up. 

I'm always experimenting and trying something a little outside the box. I think a little bit weird and a little bit edgy makes something otherwise ordinary more interesting.

Frida Kahlo

I completed this painting of Frida Kahlo today. She's been a longtime hero of mine. Not only was she beautiful and talented but she had dignity and grace and overcame a lot of adversity. I know it's trendy for artists to paint her, but she was such a captivating woman so it makes sense that she's so popular.

Stolen Kiss

I thought it would be a fun challenge to make the woman's hair expressive abstract art. I used the salt technique to add texture to the man's shirt. I'm really pleased with the final outcome. 


I'm still enjoying dabbling in watercolor. I'm really digging this color scheme. The flowers were a lot of fun to paint. 

Beach Hammock

Another painting inspired by my love of the beach. Today was yucky and gray. I could really use a beach vacation!

Utah is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world! It's tempting to take what's close by for granted and overlook the beauty in your own backyard. So we've decided to spend some weekends exploring the nearby wonders. 

A few weeks ago we visited Fremont Indian State Park and got to sleep in a teepee! It was so much fun. And how cool is the backdrop?! It felt like we were on an old Western movie set. 

And the weekend before last we finally went to Goblin Valley, a place I've wanted to see for years. It rained nearly the whole time, but it was still a fun and relaxing adventure. What's next? I'm so addicted to travel. I'm game for whatever, whether it's on the other side of the globe or a three hour road trip.

Turquoise Butterfly

After a short break from acrylics it felt fresh and new coming back to them again. You know what they say, distance makes the heart grow fonder. 

Butterflies have always had a special meaning to me. They represent change and transformation. When I run into one I feel like it's God's or the universe's way of telling me there's exciting change on the horizon.

Daisy in Her Hair

My latest watercolor. It's been so much fun trying a new medium. It's made all the difference.

More experimentation with watercolor.

I ran into my all-time favorite high school art teacher and when he found out I was experiencing a major creative slump he recommended I try a different medium to mix things up. Acrylics are my first love but I decided to give watercolor portraiture a shot and turns out I really enjoy it!

I was in a big time creative slump and decided to try something new and playful. Hence the magazine collage. I had a blast making it and kind of felt like a kid again. I'll definitely have to do another one sometime.
