From Art to Conservation


It's World Oceans Day, and I'm currently in quarantine preparing for my upcoming trip to help with sea turtle research and conservation off the GA coast. So... I'll be taking a little break from art stuff during the height of nesting season here to share more about this other passion of mine! If you'd like to follow along with my adventures, learn something new, and see lots of behind-the-scenes of what it takes to help these endangered species, come follow me over on Instagram (I will not be blogging here). I'll be sharing stuff in my daily stories like what I need to do in the weeks before departure, how much of my bag is taken up by insect repellents, our daily routines on the island, what we eat out there and how we shower, working with loggerheads, protecting nests, my "uniform", and lots more!

M2R Fence Gallery 2021




The 2021 M2R Trailfest is up! This public art exhibition is traveling again this year, starting in downtown Marietta on the fence along the Mountain to River Trail at the back of the square along the railroad tracks. It's a mile-long outdoor exhibit, including both an adult gallery and student gallery, with art from multiple disciplines. I'm excited to have my photography work (4 pieces) included for the third year in a row! It's such a fun and accessible exhibit that offers lots to look at while getting fresh air and a nice walk in. Be sure to check it out at its current location through July 9th. Other travel dates through Cobb County include Acworth 7/17-8/14, Austell 8/21-9/25, and Powder Springs 10/2-11/6 in 2021. And in 2022- Kennesaw 1/8-2/5, Town Center 2/12-3/12, and Smyrna 3/19-4/16. More info. can be found here






And guess what? My child and favorite art student has two of her pieces of artwork in the student gallery in this exhibition this year too!

May News

The Pop-up Market at Our Giving Garden is happening this Saturday, May 8th, 10-1. There will be lots of last minute goodies for Mother's Day, and I'll be there with a table of my handmade Earth Art kits, photography prints, and my Limited Edition Miniatures. You can also grab a snack and visit with the farm animals, so be sure to stop by!


I'm excited to announce that my work has been accepted into the M2R Trailfest 2021 Traveling Fence Exhibition! I'm thrilled to be joining this fantastic display of public art for a third year in a row, AND this year I have an extra surprise- My daughter has some of her work included in the student gallery as well! More details and photos to come. 

Reminders- My last Earth Art class for the spring season is coming up next Wednesday, 5/12. Join me for this one-time virtual class where students will learn about folk art and some of Georgia's fabulous folk artists! Registration closes in a couple days. Register here.

This is your last chance to see the SCAA Ladies Preference Exhibit up at Rooted Trading Company in downtown Powder Springs. Exhibit up through May. 

Do you follow me on IG yet? I've only been over there about a year now, but that's where you'll see first looks at new art, sales, and some other random things including my sea turtle research adventures that I'll be on next month!
