"Isla" Original Art

"Isla" Original Art

Isla: island, dynamic, vibrant, bright as the sun

Original Art


Islands are life giving. Surrounded by water, they offer refuge.


I actually painted the original on a boat while looking at an island! My husband and I had just gotten back from our honeymoon in Ireland. Having left that island so inspired, we decided to take our boat out to Cat Island in Mississippi. He spent the day fishing, and I sat in the back of the boat playing with my pastels. When looking at this artwork, I hope you feel all of the joy and hope we felt that day.


This painting is "new" to the world, but she's actually a few years old. She's been a part of my private collection. It's a little hard to let her go, but I feel that she is meant for someone else. I've been waiting for the right time to introduce her to the world. This timing couldn't be more perfect. I hope you love her as much as I do.
