About The Artwork

In the summer of 1970, my grandparents packed up the family station wagon and headed west on I-10 out of New Orleans. The destination was Southern California to visit my grandmother’s sister. It was the American road trip. Newly built rest stops with scenic views. Motels with pools polka-dotted with colorful patio umbrellas. National landmarks and natural wonders. And all this vivid imagery was captured on a collection of vintage family Polaroid photographs I discovered many years later. I knew I had to paint these instant memories. I loved the compositions, the colors, the stray finger covering the corner of the frame. They were perfectly, imperfect, each one a thoughtful moment that my grandparents wanted to hold onto. It was a time when you couldn’t take a million pictures only to forget them seconds later.

I was born and raised in Southern Louisiana, right outside of New Orleans. After school I moved to Denver, Colorado and started a small letterpress design shop, Paper Plates Press, with my husband. The past few years, I’ve been mainly focusing on my paintings. I find inspiration in the small moments. Moments of life, that are there for a second then gone. But while fleeting, they are so much more. I love turning these brief seconds into lasting memories. The way the light hits in a painting to create contrast, striking an emotion. A subject that sparks a bit of joy and nostalgia. Capturing a moment that takes a viewer back to a vivid place in time.
