Very excited for the music inspired exhibit next month at Miller Gallery that will feature this hand painted skate deck. See below for a glance at my process! Special thanks to local farm Spade and Clover for their dank cayenne peppers. Couldn’t resist painting them!
The Park Cafe will expand its dining room and add kitchen space with big summer renovation

“You may have noticed the whimsically painted food truck outside The Park Cafe. The truck (which used to live at Pour House) will serve as a prep space for Park's kitchen staff over the summer during a much needed restaurant glow-up… McLaughlin says he got in touch with his friends at Artist & Craftsman to see if they could find someone to doll up the truck and they connected him with local artist Rachael Nerney.
’She agreed to do it and I didn't see any of her work before then,’ says McLaughlin. Turns out, Nerney was already creating works that emulate the essence of the cafe — quirky still lifes of avocados, eggs, fresh fruit. ‘It was 100 percent perfect, serendipitous.’”
Watch the evolution of my hand painted food truck for The Park Cafe!
I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start off 2019 than with a debut exhibit at Miller Gallery. The show was easily the highlight of my artistic career thus far. It was a pleasure collaborating with fellow Charleston artist, Julia Deckman and being allowed the opportunity to collaborate on a shared passion of ours - the food & beverage community of Charleston. I loved chatting with Lindsay of Effin B Radio about all that went into making the show. If you haven’t already I hope you’ll listen! We also were interviewed by Kayln Oyer from the Post & Courier. Here is a look at that interview as well as the published article!
So excited to be part of this!
My paintings in RECIPE are showing through October 2018 at the Vendue Hotel. Eternally grateful to Sarah Miller, Emily Rigsby, Robert Lange Studios and The Vendue Hotel for this opportunity!
Hello All and Happy Spring!!
I am VERY excited to announce, I will be participating in Recipe a new gallery exhibit opening next month at The Vendue Hotel in Charleston. This is a huge step for my art career and I couldn't be in better company.
~ Cannot wait to share more. Stay tuned! ~
Get Well Soon @ The Southern
I am so excited to start off this holiday season by participating in a small works show. "Get Well Soon" has over 100 participating artists and 460 pieces displayed. Each piece is 5" x 7" on paper, ranging from $50 - $200. Charleston City Paper called the show "a cure for seasonal affective disorder." The show opened on Black Friday, allowing a shift of focus onto supporting local businesses and artists. (We) are the people that make this city a unique place. My personal highlight from the show was seeing Hollie Chastain's work also on display. I have followed Hollie for years, initially discovering her collage work on Pinterest. Her work always makes me SO happy. I purchased her piece "Someone to Cheer You Up" as a reminder that anything is possible if you put in the work and put yourself out there!

This illustration was created for an article highlighting Camellia Brand kidney beans in the second publication of Peach Dish magazine. I had so much fun with this illustration, starting with graphite, working in woodcraft paint markers, then transitioning to working digitally for the final touches.
