Hi Hello it's me Amy Jo -- Do you remember me???!

Okay so it’s seriously been a long ass time since I last wrote a blog post (January 5th to be exact) where I wrote about my trip to Ireland with my Ma— that was Thanksgiving of last year.
SO OBVIOUSLY A LOT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THEN.

I really do enjoy writing this blog, but you know- life things happen and it just seems like a struggle to really even exist. Thanks depression

Live Wedding and Event Painting /New Orleans

As many of y’all probably know, I have been doing portrait commissions for people for the last 10 ish years so I’m definitely not new to this scene— just new to painting in the wedding industry.
