April Daily Drawing Challenge

Here’s the deal – I knew being a work at home mom to a toddler and a newborn (6 weeks!) was going to be a toughie, especially since I’m easily distracted and need structure to help me push my creative bounds. So, tired of not finishing projects and needing to integrate my personal life with my work, I’m challenging myself to: A – Teach Laurel through craft, food, and dance with each day’s healthy theme B – Get me drawing again just for fun C – Finish a passion project I started last March so I can eventually turn this into a print or board book I’ll be using the...

Photoshoot Collaborations

I’ve been fortunate to dive into my side passion of fashion by creating and selling handmade hair adornments. While making the product was great, the most fulfilling part was getting to collaborate with talented photographers, models, makeup artists, hair stylists, and take part of the art direction of my brand.

Welcome

I have had the pleasure of working with so many talented artists along the gulf coast. What makes me even more excited is when they want to collaborate, and create something short of spectacular for special brides. I am excited that I got to be a part of a glimpse into Nicole’s boho wedding, shot by one of my favorite visual storytellers, Jessi Field and planned by Renee Armour of Ceremony Design....
