Update: High quality giclee prints, in four different sizes, of this painting are now available here.
I did this entire painting with Faye wrapped around me and Greta next to me eating too many sour patch kids and asking a million questions. “Is that a rainbow?” Even though I’ve done this baby thing once before, it all feels like new territory for me all over again. Faye’s first week home, I actually had to google “how to give a newborn a sponge bath.” I knew that’s what we were supposed to do until she lost her cord stump, but I had no recollection of ever doing that before (I definitely did). And every day, something new happens or shows up and I wonder, Is this normal? It’s all new again, or maybe not again. Faye isn’t Greta. And I’ve never been a mom of two before. It felt like the right time to pick up my paint brushes.
New Territory defines a new venture in my life as a new mom of two girls and, of course, the abstract landscape itself, and maybe even the new style of painting.

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Over the weekend Brooke (our social media manager) and I went to the Parade of Homes in the Raleigh area and it was so fun to get a feel of how other people in our new area are living and living large! The purpose of the parade is so that home builders and designers can […]
