As 2021 is coming to a close, I wanted to reflect on all that happened this past year! 2021 felt like a big year for me and my work, especially as we welcomed our baby boy, English, into the world! Below are a few highlights that made my year!
No. 1 - Love Bird Prints
These 'Love Bird' prints were made just in time for Valentine's Day and flew off the walls! Should I paint more 'Love Birds' this upcoming year?
No. 2 - Girls with Flowers + Baby Reveal
I reinvented my 'Girls with Flowers' by adding a vessel full of tulips to each painting and it was so fun introducing a new shape to this beloved series. I also announced that Willie was going to be a big brother!
No. 3 - Magnolias - Paintings, Works on Paper + Screen Prints
I have been loving painting 'Magnolias' in the summertime and this year was no different. This fragrant flower resonates with many and it inspired one of the silk scarves I designed.
No. 4 - Baby Boy Arrived!
Thomas English McCutchen V arrived on August 25th!
No. 5 - Falling Tulips
Before maternity leave, I painting these flowers on raw canvas, which is always an exciting and challenging material to work on.
No. 6 - Silk Scarves
One of my biggest projects! I had dreamt of making these silk scarves for a long time and I love how they turned out. These scarves allowed my artwork to take a new form and I hope they bring color to your everyday!
