As mentioned the other day, Alabama native and fine artist, Hayley Gaberlavage, is Amanda Talley's newest neighbor. In addition to offering a peek at her palette, she is graciously letting us into her NOLA studio. (I love the exposed brick and that long upholstered bench.) Like many of the women featured here recently, Hayley also studied at SCAD after earning her bachelor's degree. Today her paintings are in numerous public collections across the U.S., including a spot in my neck of the woods -- the Ritz Carlton, Buckhead.
Take note of her strong use of color, evident in her work as well as her approach to styling these casual photographs.
