When stepping back into art in 2012, I carved out a space to create out of my home. It was such a blessing to have the space for a home studio, but there is a season for everything. At the beginning of December 2020 I opened the door to what would become my new studio in beautiful downtown Goldsboro.
I'm always taking an empty canvas and transforming it into something new. Transforming an empty room into a space for creating is no different. Some things go as plan and others do not.
See the journey through photos below!
The move in begins and believe me it takes good friends for moving and celebrating!
The chalk painting debacle. Don't buy into the hype of no prep needed. You might get lucky. You might not. With this old piece, we did not get lucky. Word of advice- try searching for problems with chalk paint. We highly recommend Zinsser Oil Based Primer.
Many, many layers of paint later not to mention the prep work, I am so excited to have this hutch my dad gave my mom as an anniversary present in the studio. It's like having a piece of them with me. But please don't mention the word chalk painting.
Every good idea begins with Pinterest? Begins being the key word. From concept to front porch carpentry to studio table.

I'm an artist working in acrylic and mixed media. I love looking for the seen and the unseen by exploring matters of the heart. My one of a kind works of art are in the style of expressionism, representational art, and inspirational art. All of my works of art share in the qualities of redemptive art.
