It feels great to be painting again.
I finally pulled out a canvas and some paint last thursday - such fun!

This one is most likely SOLD!!!

And, yes this painting has SOLD!

I'll be creating a facebook page soon and expanding my website gallery.
In the meantime you can visit and view some of my work at:

New work coming soon! 

Even though I have not been posting onto the blog in quite a while, there has still been a lot going on around here.

I continue to hand engrave glass for 2 wonderful luxury home stores:

Gramercy in Atlanta (peachtree battle shopping)
Acorns on Church (highlands, nc)

For the past two years, I have been a full time contractor for a corporate graphic design MarCom department. It was great! But it took me away from my creative work and left me just enough time to handle special orders from my retail connections.
However, I am happy to announce that I have returned to the art and freelance design world and thankful to have more time to engrave, paint and create on a daily basis!

Here is a recent commission for a wedding gift

More to come soon!

i'm jealous of the jealous curator!

I loooove this!
I am jealous of this blog!! Seriously, I often find myself discovering an artist's work or an innovative business idea and kick myself a little, i wish i had thought of that or done that or whatever... there really are so many dynamic and diverse points of view and that makes our world wonderful, exciting and most of all, inspiring. I just love that this blogger comes right out and says, "jealous". it is perfect, because let's be honest, where there is admiration, there is often a little bit of jealousy sprinkled on top, no?

and in reading this blog, I have discovered this innovative art for a great price. plus a good blog name.

and because i have been living under a rock lately, here is this discovery.... how awesome would it be to goto this, um next week? oh day!

Marlis Cornett catalog cover

The holiday season was great! This was my first year to participate in holiday markets and it was exciting and productive. I met so many new and interesting people which lead to some exciting custom design work that I hope to display on this blog soon.
In the meantime I am updating my catalog and busy photographing some new items.
Here is the current catalog cover and please check back to see some updates over the next couple of weeks.
Happy 2012!
