Experience Boldness Through Watercolors

I've moved a lot in my 20's. My moving started with the fashion design internships I had to do every other three months for 3 years straight, and just happened to continue after that for a few years. Newport Beach, Vail, Aspen, Santa Rosa, Cincinnati, India were a few areas I experienced, but Jackson Hole's been home for almost 3 years now, which is really impressive on the Haley-move-scale:)

To make these moves a little simpler, I had a series of boxes that always had my “necessities,” one of which had art supplies I accumulated through the year. So, one day a few years ago, I found myself digging through that supply box and ran across 12 tubes of watercolors along with 2 nice brushes. It had totally slipped my mind that I had taken one watercolor course in college [read: wasn't into it].

I only gained an interest in painting when I got to Jackson. I didn't have much experience, didn't have a job yet, but did have a lot of Acrylics. I put together an Art Show for Cowboy Coffee of acrylic paintings on wood [you can view here] and then began painting in a style similar to what my watercolor paintings look like now.

The watercolor transition was caused by a cruise.

Let me back up, my boyfriend [met him in Aspen, another "home"] and I went on a cruise. Fun right? Nope. We were both sick basically the entire time and I came back to Jackson with a kidney infection. On the bright-side, this allowed me some additional days off work. But sitting on the couch isn't for me, and I decided I should fill one of our 10'x10' walls with a mural [what a surprise when my roommate came home].

I didn't want the paint to drip, but it did, and i gave up trying to stop it from dripping after about 5 minutes. But I liked it. In a weird turn of events, once I found those watercolors, they did the same thing. And I liked that, too.

I had my first watercolor show in December of 2014 at the Rose in Jackson Hole. Called “First to Third,” the collection showed the disparity between first world and third world countries, along with providing information about particular companies I showcased that are doing work in those places, and giving the viewer a chance to see if he or she resonated with one of the global issues. Prints from this show can be found on my Etsy site here, as this website only contains my limited edition series of paintings.

I love learning more about watercoloring each day and am excited about offering some originals and prints you to enjoy as well. Though this is my first artwork store, I do have some experience, as I ran a successful store out of my room from about ages 5-10 called the Stone Shop, where I sold "exotic" stones I found to...well, I think my mom was my only customer each time I was open. Due to inflation, my prices are a bit higher on this site than me 10 cent stone sales:)

Now that we've met a little bit, welcome to my site! Thanks so much for coming by. I'd love to hear from you if anything you see piques your interest, or just to say hi, or talk about any of the following which I also love: cooking + baking with an emphasis on nutrition, diving deeper into my faith in God, listening to entrepreneur podcasts, playing the piano and most all sports, trying to cheer for the Browns, and traveling to culturally diverse areas in the world.

Growing up on a farm in Northwest Ohio, I would have never guessed I’d end up in Wyoming, but after being a trek guide around the USA, the beauty here was too much to overlook. If anyone finds themselves in the Tetons/Yellowstone area [which I highly recommend], make sure to get ahold of me at info [at] haleybadenhop.com and let’s grab some coffee or go skiing:)

In the meantime, please follow me on Instagram and Facebook, to see the most up-to-date artwork.
