Come make playful art with me! A few spots are still available for the fall! Kids classes pull from art history, stories & nature for inspiration. The evening adult class focuses on watercolor techniques. All classes take place in my uptown New Orleans studio, flanked by theee walls of windows ☀️☀️☀️ If you’re interested, send me a DM with your email, and I’ll send the details!

Working on summer commissions, and I can’t get enough of this friendly pup. Did you know I paint pet commissions? And really almost any idea you might dream up. Bringing your sacred, silly, wonderful and serious moments to paint and paper, is hands down one of my favorite aspects of creating.

Back in the city, with the beach still on my mind ☺️🏝✨
Green umbrellas, shifting blues and excellent people watching 🏖💙
A day spent by the River, on an island, in the middle of the ocean ✨
Summertime travels ✨ #wip
Sleepy summer evenings, when chaos smoothes into tranquility and dreams begin
My favorite view in all the world ✨ #gloriouslakemartin
