Augusta is an abstract painter with a BFA in painting from the University of Georgia and a MFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta. While classically trained, she is renowned for creating inventive yet approachable abstract paintings that embrace color and intuitive mark-making.
Her work has been featured in House Beautiful, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles, Serena & Lily, West Elm, Style Blueprint, the Scout Guide and most recently, interior designer Ashley Gilbreath’s best selling book, The Joy of Home, to name a handful.
Her paintings are described as atmospheric: evoking a sense of landscape and escapism. Thoughtfully designed so that the painting grows with you for years to come, Augusta’s paintings allow you to not just appreciate what it looks like in your setting, but find different pockets of excitement every time you admire it.
Augusta currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her husband, Ed, and their three young sons; Oscar, Ian and Samuel. When she’s not painting, Augusta enjoys teaching virtual abstract painting classes for adults. You can find her paintings throughout the United States.
About the Paintings
I am interested in art that is both accessible and thought provoking. My paintings play with connections and memories. Often described as atmospheric, I focus on special places and moments and explore what they would look (and, more importantly, feel) like on a canvas.
My paintings remind you of what you hold dear: whether it be your favorite place, a fond memory with your people, a milestone or achievement. If you get to see this art that reminds you of something wonderful everyday, even the not so good days can be lifted up; and that’s a game changer. I believe art is the investment in the beauty of your everyday.
