Student Images From Amelia and the Southern Sea Islands

December proved to be the perfect time for a workshop based on Amelia Island. The weather was cool, but not cold. The winter light was beautiful. The marsh was still showing some green. There was a hint of fall color in the landscape. Beaches were quiet. And it was easy to find a parking space and to get into local restaurants.

We had a great group of women who gathered to explore Amelia, Big Talbot, Little Talbot and Fort George Islands—photographing natural, designed and cultural landscapes, along with seascapes and stunning skies. Here’s a peek at some of the work they created throughout the week.

Caroline Nix Gallery Now Carrying Work

I’m pleased to announce that Caroline Nix Gallery is now carrying my work. This is a new gallery, opened just six months ago, that works closely with interior designers, is open to the public by appointment, and hosts Open House events every few months. The work is mostly contemporary, yet it can also be used to give a fresh look to more traditional interiors. The gallery is currently carrying a number of my 20x20 and 12x12 photo-encaustic botanicals. You can follow Caroline Nix Galleries on instagram or check out their website for more information.
