Artwork for the Home: Symmetry

Turn a negative into a positive. The negative space that once existed between these gold lamps has been haunting me for months. After sketching and creating a couple abstracts, I wasn’t pleased.

“Mama, when we going to da seep farm?” That’s all I heard in the days leading up to the 4th annual, Shearing Day Open House at the recently conserved Foster Sheep Farm (brought to you by Saratoga PLAN). After today, I’d say my love for farmland blossomed into an obsession. I am so drawn to […]

Over the summer, I was commissioned to create custom artwork for a friend’s finished kitchen. I must to give credit to my friend, Lisa M, for the referral. Word of mouth really is the best form of advertising. Needless to say, I jumped at the chance. I’d been longing for an excuse to break out […]
