I am an Alabama artist who creates dreamlike watercolors that incorporate various types of jars. I paint memories of my childhood in the Deep South. These memories include vibrant jars of produce cooling on my great-grandmother’s windowsills and falling asleep on summer evenings by the light of a Mason jar sparkling with fireflies. I would like information on being featured in your publication (Bottles and Extras) and on how to submit images of my work for consideration. For your convenience, I am including a resume and several sample images.
