in my neck of the woods.. by the time the calendar flips to March.. we are all ready for the snow to be gone and for Spring to arrive. This kitchen mockboard has a hint of peppy Spring colors - warm yellows, pops of pink, springy blue/greys. I see an afternoon full of friends, sitting in big comfy upholstered chairs, chatting over warm coffees & homemade treats...
discussing plans of Easter, pedicures, and spring breaks.

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.
