Whenever you are creating beauty around you, you are restoring your own soul. - Alice Walker

 

“Shatter my heart so a new room can be created for a Limitless Love.” -Sufi Saying

 

I do many things. Mostly I'm an artist and designer obsessed with making things simple + beautiful. I hear people talk a lot about focusing on one thing, specializing and creating a niche. I find that to be a completely ridiculous idea. I'm an experimenter. I'm a rare combination: a free spirit who loves organization.

While I'm fairly confident that my love + fascination with color  started at conception, there are several life events that lead to refinements and breakthroughs for honing my gifts:

  • All of my childhood memories involve color in some way. My first memory is of my older brother throwing a cup of red Kool-Aid onto my mom's white curtains.  I was 18 months old. 
  • When I was about four I very enthusiastically interrupted Thanksgiving dinner at Grandma's house to report that the blue water in the  toilet turned green after I peed! This is a very distinct memory, I was deeply fascinated by this magical color change. 
  • In high school, when I wasn't busy painting murals in art class and designing the school yearbook, I did makeup. Apparently  my classmates were impressed by my rainbow colored eyelids, because they happily lined-up to let me paint their faces.  
  • After so many years  focused on creating colorful art, I obtained degrees in both interior design  + architecture. 
  • I spent the last 10 years designing homes throughout the Bay Area, refining my knowledge of color theory and learning about the effects of light and texture with color.
  • From 2012-2014 I created a series of color study paintings, several of which ended up in local art shows.
  • In 2015 I finally connected the dots I've been collecting all these years and created a life + business around my  love + fascination with color  ❤
