Large Magnolia Flower

This is a picture I took of a Magnolia flower (the same Magnolia tree that was used in other photos). I loved it -unfortunately my feet were in the shot and I didn't notice until I had left. But now, thanks to my favorite person EVER, the feet are now gone and this photo is lovely :)

Metal Bracelet

Metal bracelet I made about 2 years ago.

Ring of Paisley

Necklace made of cut metal pieces. Each piece was because with a jewelers saw, sanded, drilled, buffed and formed so that each piece was identical. This necklace took me about 3 months to finish - the first time around I made each piece a little too big so I had to file them all down to a smaller size - needless to say, that was a pain!

Wire Rings

Wire rings made on a ring mandrill. Super easy, they probably took me 3-5 minutes each

"Black Lace" Necklace

This is a necklace I made with black wire and beads. I had to make each piece individually, which was difficult because each piece had to be the same size.
If you click on the close up photo you can see evidence of the work that went into creating this necklace.

I had to draw a myself with a silly face. I didn't like the idea at first but it turned out well and it was put in a traveling art show - which is always flattering.

Two Pots And a Wooden Duck

This is one of my favorite paintings, unfortunatly it's not a very good picutre. My camera didn't capture the bright colors, the flowers or the wooden duck very well. But that's ok, you get the idea.
Anyway, this painting took me a long time but the hard work was well worth it.

Flowers in a Chest

Still life of some flowers in a chest. I just love the contrast in this one as well as the bright colors in the flowers.

Mother's Day Gift

Still life I painted for my mom for Mother's day. I wanted it to be a surprise, so I could only paint for 30 minutes at a time but I finished soon enough and she was surprised!

Monochromatic Painting

A monochromatic painting that I did last fall. I hated it at first but now it's one of my favorite pieces.

Bleached Fabric

I bleached some fabric using leaves, branches and grapes. It was a lot of fun, but the bleach destroyed one of my brushes and my hands were in pretty bad shape for about a week.


Still life I did in charcoal last fall


This is a drawing that I did of my friend Jilian about a year after she was killed in a car accident.

Early Morning Horizon

Across a Mississippi beach in the early morning. This photo was taken just before the sun peeked over the horizon.


Photo of the sand at low tide. I just love the texture and movement in this photo.

Magnolia Tree

I took this photo while I was sitting in the magnolia tree in front of my church.

Seagull at Sunrise

Another sunrise photo with a seagull. This is one of my favorite photos, I just love it.

Two Seagulls at Sunrise

This is a photo I took in Mississippi. There are two seagulls - one flying and the other is walking along the beach.
