Painting is a hobby of mine that I do late at night when all my Real Estate obligations have been met. I began painting about 6 years ago after my husband and I opened up a small boutique real estate company and began furnishing it with ART. I decided - after purchasing a few paintings that "I could do that". I have always been pretty creative and love color, design, and all things "beautiful". So I began my journey of "becoming an "ARTIST".
In 2011 I entered my first Art Contest. IO Metro which is an awesome furniture and art store based out of Northwest Arkansas had a LOCAL ART CONTEST via their facebook page. Over 2000 artists entered the contest and 25 works of art were chosen. I WON! My ART is featured in all of IO METRO's stores across the United States and online. You can view and purchase my artwork for sale @ IO METRO HERE
UPDATE: I won IO Metro's 2nd annual Local Art contest as well and have 3 more paintings in IO METRO. The 3 flags, "Union Jack", "Stars & Stripes" and "Lone Star" can be seen HERE
I also paint original paintings - both Abstract and "kid-art" (vintage looking baseballs, footballs and rockets). I really enjoy painting and it has been fun to be able to do both real estate and become an artist at the same time! I live in Bentonville, Arkansas and if you are not aware - Bentonville just became one of the hottest places for American Art in the world! Check out Crystal Bridges Art Museum.
