My favorite activity is painting, but I also enjoys an array of other things: a good cup of coffee, gardening, hiking, reading, handwritten letters, quality time with loved ones, vegetarian cooking, road trips, playing with my two Boston Terriers, photography, micro brewed beer, making bread from scratch, music, sushi, star gazing...

I create jewelry when I need a break from painting. My pendant designs won Best of Show at Art on the Square in Athens, AL. in 2007. My other Etsy shop can be found at http://keelyb.etsy.com
