hotmesspaints' Shop Announcement

Thank you for taking the time to visit my shop. I aim to make every piece I create as unique and dynamic as possible. My paintings typically consist of bold colors and visible brush strokes. I use metallic paints and texture to add light and depth. I tend to lean toward more vintage or abstract subjects, but like to experiment as often as possible.

I call my shop 'Hot Mess Paints' because I think it is an adequate description of the process in so many ways. For starters, I love to paint outside or near an open screen door. Having lived in NC and now in VA, it is often quite warm. Painting is not a clean hobby and I do my best work when it gets a little messy; blending paints and practicing stroke techniques on nearby surfaces (i.e. a palette, my easel, a leg). The best pieces always result in a small explosion of paint on me.

Although I am new to this marketplace, I have been distributing my art for a few years. I have contributed artwork for auctions to benefit charities and developed logos, t-shirts, and banners for businesses and non-profit organizations including NAMI@NCSU.


*All items may be customized.*

If you like a style, but prefer a different color, I can redo the painting and personalize it to your tastes.

I am also open to completely customized paintings. Message me if you are interested.
