Amelia on line store NOW OPEN!!

It's been ages since I wrote a post.... I'm sorry I've been away from the site, but I have been working night and day on the new Amelia online store and brand new website.

I also have a new NEWS section there that will give the site a blog like section... aka, this site will be fading out. It's been fun but I have less time to keep it consistent.

In the mean time, check out two new posts on

See you over there!!

What: Our Bug Collection
Song that describes your work: Bugs by Pearl Jam.
"I got bugs
I got bugs in my room
Bugs in my bed
Bugs in my ears
Their eggs in my head
Bugs in my pockets
Bugs in my shoes
Bugs in the way I feel about you...

And now the questions:
Do I kill them?
Become their friend?
Do I eat them?
Raw or well done?
Do I trick them?
I don't think they're that dumb
Do I join them?
Looks like that's the one."

This year's show is next Saturday, October 29th. Please email for any questions. Thanks!!

Just a few short days away, on Saturday the 29th, we welcome the 5th Annual One Night Stand at The Ole Miss Motel!! 
This year's show is going to be so cool! The artists are seriously talented. 
I'd like to introduce one of this year's artists to you, 
Sarah Story. Here is a brief bio...

Name(s): Sarah Story
Living where: Water Valley, MS
Medium of art: oil paint
What this body of work will bring to this year's motel art show: 
My current work explores the line between reality and abstraction. I make paintings that seem abstract, but after further observation the viewer will discover a new perspective of a familiar object. They are colorful, whimsical, obsessive, (hopefully) interesting, and will look great in any home (according to my mother).
