Have you seen the promo video by Trent Sherrill, with Speed & Kulture Magazine, for my painting series “She’s Been Everywhere, Man!”? I wanted to share this teaser clip with you to show what inspired me to create these 10 iconic paintings of our beautiful country: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHo58H2Qxo0

WHAT IS “SHE’S BEEN EVERYWHERE, MAN!”:
“She’s Been Everywhere, Man!” is an innovative collection of ten original paintings, in automotive enamel paint, that depict women driving vintage classic and custom cars to some of our county’s most historic and iconic locations. The series title was originally inspired by the lyrics of the Johnny Cash song, “I’ve Been Everywhere”. After restoring my 1966 Jeepster with my dad, and traveling cross country in it with my family, I realized that America’s rich history is ONLY defined by our willingness to maintain the things and preserve the places that established our unique, cultural identity in the world that is AMERICANA! Through my art and personal story, I want to start a conversation on the importance of maintaining and preserving the things and places of our past, to inform and ultimately benefit our future generations.
In the Spring of 2022, all ten paintings will be revealed at an in-person art exhibition (as well as online) where you will have the opportunity to view the work in person and purchase the original artwork, prints, and/or sticker sets of each painting. As I plan the fun details of this exclusive event, I smile to think of the people I will have the opportunity to meet and the candid stories and conversations that will take place inspired by the images in these paintings.
My inspiration for this series stems from WPA travel posters, pin-up aviation nose art, vintage car advertisements, and my own favorite photos from family road trips you can check out over on my Pinterest, but the best way to follow the creation of the actual artwork is to become a, “She’s Been Everywhere Insider”, or join my newsletter!
