|THE ONE TIME WE FORGOT TO ASK "WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO WEAR?"|
This is my dear friend Nancy. We were neighbors and friends back in Indianapolis and were thrilled to join them in Scottsdale recently. But as I went through the photos taken, it was the same problem we always seem to have...photos of us were blurry, out of focus, or just plain bad. Out of frustration, I still wanted to capture this one funny moment. Nancy and I have a history of asking what the other is going to wear, except for this one evening. We both stepped out of our bedrooms to realize we dressed almost identical. I recreated the moment with paint instead.
Nighttime in Scottsdale was filled with color, good eats, great shopping and a full moon.
Have a colorful weekend!
You might be surprised to know that as a successful interior designer, licensed designer and artist, as a child I was told I would never amount to anything. Once I stopped believing that lie there has been no holding me back.
I became an award winning and nationally recognized interior designs in the 90’s and in 2003 I began manufacturing my own signature line of children’s and home décor. Soon after, I began licensing my designs to be made into fabrics, artwork, home décor and most recently a baby collection with Papyrus.
In 2011 my husband and I moved to San Diego and for the first time I gave myself permission to play. I picked up a paintbrush and discovered that every brushstroke is a new adventure. On a fluke I decided to enter a piece into a gallery show and when the director of the gallery purchased my painting for his home, I gained the confidence to take my art play more seriously.
Besides enjoying painting, I'm still passionate about interior design. Proof is in our fixer-upper which is in a constant state of DIY renovations. So on any given day you can find paint, sawdust or sewing thread attached to me, and some days all three.
