Day 10: Beach Plunder, 10”x8”, oil on wood, available, DM me if interested.
I took my kids on a treasure hunt along the Port A beach on Gulf of Mexico this morning. Here is some of what we found.
It made me think about all the ways people measure what “treasure” is. How do you define it? Like a child on a beach? Like an artist — where you may see washed-up, faded colored plastic as a kind beauty? As a banker, that values what is common currency?
This is the beach plunder we found — my kids and me.
This is part of a series of 30 paintings in 30 days. Today is day 10.

I featured 🌟Baboon Empress👸🏽 in an Art show in Seattle, back in 2009, where she met @igorpeev
and they became inseparable! He was so kind to soon after, send me a Postcard during his travels throughout Brazil. He shared how she watches over him everyday, as the Queen of his Art Collection and that he had an instantaneous connection to her.
I remember feeling SUPER touched! This message came at the perfect time for me, since I wasn’t as confident in myself then. 🐛🦋✨
I 💓 having the ability to impact and connect with people in such a meaningful way. Thank you for that special Postcard! 💌 @igorpeev

Worked with watercolor for the first time in a long time a few weeks ago and have found a new found obsession. I had forgotten how magical it is to work with color. #craftingfun
I’m actually melting in my studio.. Something about playing with fire when it’s 97 degrees out just isn’t working so well for me 🤷🏻♀️ #sweatybetty

Never without some fab plaything to keep the kiddos entertained! I must admit, when I was little I had a habit of bringing a toy to school. And it all started in grade school... and it sorta didn’t stop till I was in high school!! What was your favourite little plaything when you were a kid?
I made a couple of these fine silver and iridescent glitter studs (both this ‘pebble’ style and my round style) while I was pregnant and I will be putting them up on the site sometime within the next week. Keep your eyes out 👀 for that post! ✨
Cheers to painting this gorgeous home!...right here in Thalia, Virginia Beach 🍻
There is a beautiful juxtaposition that comes from working with wood. At first glance, one might only see a rough slab of timber. But as I begin to work with it, each slab reveals how delicate and sensitive this seemingly ordinary piece of wood really is. For every nuance of change during its lifetime in the ground as a tree is deeply written into the very fibre of its being. It’s story forever embedded into the rings, grains and grooves. No two trees are the same and every slab is singularly distinctive. As a woodworker, it is an incredible privilege to work with such ancient history in your hands. I feel drawn to reflect that essence in the furniture I create. It is the basis of my work. Creating depth and delicate elegant lines that subtly reflect a history of intricacy and grace.
While I use all manner of tools and equipment to create my forms, the two most loved and useful hand tools in my workshop are a well used set of paring chisels and a comfortable, well balanced block plane. While these items are not often used for shaping curves and delicate lines, they are invaluable for finishing the intricate details that are the cornerstones of my design.
I was so humbled when Penguin Random House contacted me last year about sharing my artisan’s experience in their upcoming publication “The Tool Book”. And this week, I was privileged to hold the beautifully finished and highly visual hardcopy in my hands. There are over 200 hand tools featured and every single page pays homage to generations of craftsmanship, ingenuity and know-how. From the evolution of hand tools to the exploration of each tool in depth.
said in the foreword, “... what you can create with these charismatic utensils is a limitless sense of adventure and accomplishment - a life rife with practical industry... they are precisely the devices necessary for the art of living well...”
Thank you @penguinrandomhouse
for inviting me to be a part of this celebration of human innovativeness and creativity. #TheToolBook
Check out my giveaway AEGIS in her new home with @linds_billings
in California! 😍❤️ what a stunner! I adore the dusty sand aesthetic of this corner bedroom shot, and I absolutely love seeing pictures of my work in their perma-homes because they are living their best lives in the environment they were hand picked to be in. DM if you’d like your very own AEGIS to adorn your walls!
Hats off to the @calgarystampede
