“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous” – Aristotle
I fell in love with watercolor because of its wildness; that tension, suspension of pigment in water. . . that balance of control & chaos. That’s why I love watercolor and it’s how I want to live.
Living as an artist is part of that tension for me. As a business owner, you have control but the lack of external structure & guaranteed outcomes can also feel chaotic at times. In the end, it’s about using your best gifts every day, putting a little more beauty into the world for others to enjoy & facing a degree of uncertainty with grace because it’s what you’re called to do. I love it with all my heart. I live in Greensboro, NC with my husband Joel & our cat Britin. I currently work out of my little upstairs home studio & en plein air whenever I can.
“But ask the animals,
and they will teach you,
or the birds in the sky,
and they will tell you;
or speak to the earth,
and it will teach you,
or let the fish in the sea inform you.
Which of all these does not know
that the hand of the Lord has done this?
In his hand is the life of every creature
and the breath of all mankind.”
– Job 12:7-10
