we recently moved our home... so that meant a new studio for me! it was a good time to clean out, organize and attempt simplifying. my studio space under went a full renovation...(new insulation, walls, floors, lighting and windows) i'm still getting settled in.. but here is kinda what it looks like... painted white floors, brass hanging lights, grey furniture, "Willow" fabric in Storm was sewn into curtains to conceal all of my storage and mess.. and of course a new bed for Stella (my canine sidekick) ...coffee, cellphone and paintbrushes always within reach!

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.
