Botanical Drawings :: Living Room

Preston and I finally decided on the style of artwork we wanted in our living room! After getting our sofas and coffee table in place, we decided on some simple botanical drawings to hang over the dark leather sofa. Our living room is getting pretty cozy, it will be a perfect place to watch movies and drink hot chocolate when the weather gets cooler! I also found a fiddle leaf ficus on sale at Home Depot that I just could not pass up, so it has joined the family.  

I created the botanical drawings with watercolor pencils and acrylic paint. They are 16 x 20 on watercolor paper.


Let's not forget Preston's awesome Elk Sketch hanging over the fireplace!! 

Poppies for Beth's Kitchen

My sweet mother-in-love needed some artwork for her beautiful kitchen that was remodeled last year! We found a painting in a store we liked so we used the same concept to create this piece to match her kitchen better!  I hope you enjoy your poppy painting Beth!


Below we have Beth with her painting. I also showed some beginning stages of the painting process and Nana Libby modeling with the piece! 

Turtle Sunrise :: Illustration

 I am so thankful for the opportunity presented to me earlier this year by my sweet and talented friend, Ann Higginbottom.  Ann had been dreaming about the creation of this book for years and I was so honored when she asked me illustrate Turtle Sunrise. Illustrating a book has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl! I love how God is constantly placing people like Ann in my life to help me glorify Him and take me on new adventures. I hope you enjoy Ann's story of three turtle brothers and their journey to the sea!

You can purchase Turtle Sunrise here!

Thank you for taking the time to view some of my work :)

North American Wildlife

 I was recently asked to create two paintings for a pediatric dentist's office in Texarkana, Texas. The theme was North American wildlife and I could not have been more excited to begin working on these paintings! When I was a little girl I was constantly drawing wild animals in my sketch books so getting to create them for children on such a large scale was really fun for me. Thank you Preston Spindle for taking these photos of me with my latest paintings and putting up with my big painting messes in our little home!

Sketchbook 2

Sketchbook number two.

This book was always with me during my first year of college. I had a giant hippie purse that allowed me to carry it everywhere! I took it to "study" with me at Sweet Eugene's and anywhere else you could imagine on the Texas A&M campus. It journeyed with me on a trip to Nashville, Tennessee and several road trips to Oklahoma to see my grandparents. When I look through its pages it reminds me what it was like to be a carefree college freshman!

Aggie Ring


Preston drew his Aggie ring to mat with his diploma.

He also made one for my diploma, I married such a talented man!


Sketchbook 4

Sketchbook number four.

I like this sketchbook. I drew in it during a changing time.

I filled its pages with random sketches during the first and second year of dental school. I had this book around when my first and only boyfriend, Preston, asked me to be his wife. You can see a few drawings of him snuck in amongst the pages :) I drew in this book a lot when I thought I should have been studying...but everything turned out fine.
