The Art Market Gallery

I have excellent news! I successfully juried into the Art Market Gallery, an artist co-op on Gay Street in downtown Knoxville.
As soon as they get a display case setup for me, my work will be available for purchase there. It's a beautiful space, with work from over 60 local East Tennessee artists.
I'm very excited to be a part of this group of talented artists, and I look forward to what the future holds!

Springtime Necklace

Tomorrow is the first day of spring, and here is my newest creation. It is a special piece for a dear friend, and I hope she likes it! The color palette is very hopeful and cheery, and when she wears it I hope it brightens her mood and makes her smile. :)

I am constantly inspired by nature and love to experiment with color, pattern, and texture. My goal is to capture a sense of whimsy and style, while showing a strong attention to detail. Like a lovingly gathered collection of tiny treasures, I want my beads to be beautiful and unique on their own but create an interesting conversation when grouped together.

Birthday ATC Swap - Part 2

Remember the ATC (Artist Trading Card) I made back in January for a birthday swap? Well, since my birthday is in March, I got mine and wanted to show it off! It was made by a dear friend, Marjorie Courville, and I think it's wonderful! It captures her personality and style perfectly! :)

Thank you Marge!
