my daughter is 14. when we recently moved into our new home she had a bedroom makeover - she wanted an ALL white room - very Zen & peaceful. i was willing to give it a try. so far so good - her room is lovely and bright. This mock up is based on what her room really looks like (white walls, pine floors, armoire, mannequin, benches, buddha head & pillow, white bedding, colorful scarfs on display, and musical instruments on the walls) i took artistic license here added a few pops of color to bounce off the "Take Me Away: India" art that is brand new for 2013 for drooz/ oopsydaisy. Namaste.drooz studio art: Take me Away:: India

over the years i have designed hundreds of paintings, patterns, items.
my thought process of creating something new often originates in, places i've travelled, special items i have collected, an experience i've been privileged with, my children and their
ever-changing interests, the design challenge to combine classic & trend,or a precious memory i'd like to make last forever.
combined with my great love of decor & home.. and the fact that my art is often turned into products & art for decor, i have to admit my biggest inspiration when creating a new design is to imagine the room or space my work may inhabit someday. envision it live.
the story it will help tell. the visual journey it may invoke.
the place it will adorn & the items it will share it with.
the way it might make one swoon.
this year i will "attempt" a weekly "SWOON w drooz"...
a new space, place, or experience inspired by my artwork each week.
