I’ve been described as a forever dreamer and constant learner with big art dreams, and I’ve had a lifelong desire to bring joy through creating. My hope has always been that my art would be something you can see, feel, touch, and experience, bringing people joy and light.
My home studio/creative sanctuary is in Franklin, TN. I’m a graduate of Miami University/Oxford, OH’s Fine Arts program, and I’m a life-long creative yet primarily self-taught painter. I am deeply inspired by faith, nature and the world around me and love to experiment with texture, mixed media, sketching, colors and more.
My work has appeared on HGTV, The DIY Network Nashville Flipped, Nashville Lifestyles AT HOME Magazine, Southern Exposure Magazine, The Tennessean along with others. I am licensed by Kirklands Home Stores and Hobby Lobby for certain works nationally, as well as exhibiting my fine art in galleries and shops throughout the Southeastern US. You can also visit my small shop/booth “Elder & Lacy” in Franklin, TN at The Painted Tree Marketplace where I sell small originals and artisan gifts for the gift market.
I’m so grateful to create art everyday in the hopes that someone will find beauty in it for their own life.
