I'm having fun and starting to use more charms and chains in my new jewelry for spring and summer. Thanks for the wonderful response to our most recent FLASH SALE. I hope that dreaming of the sea helps all of you who are dealing with ice and snow, warm up

About

I am a mother, wife, photographer, mixed media artist, gallery owner, Carolina girl, and am proud to have been born and raised on the Outer Banks.

I graduated from UNC-CH in 1992. While studying there, I took one photojournalism course and immediately feel in love with it! I continued practicing photography as a hobby until 2005. With my family's help (my husband, son and twin daughters) I started "Photos from the Porch". Our house has porches on every side and is on a peninsula between a creek and the Pamlico Sound. From the second story we can also see the ocean. Most of the photos I took that first year were of subjects that could been seen from our porch. My photographs preserve the memory of my feelings. Each image captures emotion and my perspective, including patterns that textures that occur naturally but are often overlooked.

I use a process called sublimation to individually reproduce my art onto ceramic, glass, wood and fabric. I print and package all of my own work, with the help of a great support team.

Making jewelry started as a hobby and a way to pass the time. As a self-proclaimed "bead hoarder", I am always searching for new ideas and ways to create one-of-a-kind accessories to help people feel special and beautiful.

It is a constant challenge to balance my family life with dual careers as a photographer and gallery owner. More than anything, I've learned that I am constantly experimenting with different ways to express myself. I think that plays a large part in keeping my work fresh and interesting.

Welcome!

All of the work you see in Blue Pelican Gallery Gifts and yarn is made by me. Occasionally, I will have a bit of assistance from my dad Bill, or my (teenage) twin daughters Avery and Delaney, but everything I create is my idea and touched by me. I joke that I have “MAD” – or “Multiple Artist Disorder” – because my attention is often grabbed by something that I see around me and I will launch off in a totally new direction.

My studio and packaging/shipping station are 100% smoke free.

Please do not hesitate at all to convo me if you have questions, comments or requests.

To view more of my work and keep up with the 'goings on', visit my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/bluepelicangallery or find me on twitter or instagram via @obxbluepelican.
