New Year, New Studio, New Blog


I have been thinking long and hard about this first blog entry… in fact, maybe a little too hard, I told myself I would start a blog last year at this time. Time goes by, countless adventures take place and here I am stumbling over the first few words to even say. But, after all that happened in the very quick year of 2010, I am speechless. I have nothing but gratitude for being placed in this whirlwind, unpredictable, ever growing life of an emerging artist. My biggest inspiration has been the people that surround me. I have learned over lots of trial and error that a big part of your life is who you allow to influence you. When you open your mind to that kind of universal inspiration- expect surprises on a daily basis.
This blog is dedicated to art, all forms of design, some travel, some love, lots of passion and all the people who fall under any one of these categories. To truly embrace a career you cannot ever forget the reality of hard work, dedication and focus. (…I stress that). BUT, this blog, isn’t about the sweaty stuff, it’s about the extra sweet stuff. You know “light bulb moments”- they don’t come out of thin air. They come from seeing, feeling, doing and this blog is exactly what comes before those moments. Last year I began a great journey of seeing and experiencing, it challenged my life and changed the direction of my work. This year, I have decided it is finally time to share.
So we will start here. After roaming around like a gypsy for a few months, I’ve settled, here, in a pretty studio in New Orleans. I have never been more excited to begin a NEW YEAR in a new city. So lets start simple…
Hi, I’m Mallory. I paint. I live in Nola. I love the ocean, crayons, design mags, tea parties, oysters, white walls and shiny things. This is my blog. Sit, Stay, Play. It’ll be fun.
