It’s no secret, I love what I do, and I’m often asked what part of my job I enjoy the most. Today, I’ll share a few of my favorite aspects of being a designer and artist with you.
As a people person and nurturer, I love the one on one interaction that comes with helping clients bring their visions to
life. One of my favorite types of projects is shopping for an existing home with a client and sharing the vision of what’s possible as I sell them on their home’s potential. This absolutely makes me giddy and during moments like these, it’s clear to me why all of our favorite HGTV shows are so popular!
I also truly enjoy the creative brainstorming phase that takes place as I dive into a new project. To get ideas flowing, I often draw inspiration from my loves of travel and spending time outdoors. These elements are reflected in both my designs and artwork. I’m always excited when a client shares those same passions with me, as most certainly, beautiful collaboration will ensue.
Creating, in general, is another passion of mine. In design and art, I’m always ready to create whatever is needed to realize the client’s vision for a room or my vision for a piece of art. To me, incorporating art into my designs is a natural way to complete a space or finish a home. I’m especially drawn to mixed media. Something about layering different materials, often unexpected elements, feeds my soul. Enhancing a piece with colors, textures, and materials lends a one of a kind look, especially when finished with a resign or custom frame as I often do.
Selfishly, another reason I love being an artist and designer is because my skillset naturally spills over into my personal life. To date, I’ve renovated three houses, each holding a special place in my heart. My husband and I are in the process of redesigning our current retreat that we call home. I look forward to sharing more about all my projects with you in the future and would love to help you with your next project, as well! Have an idea? Need an idea? Let's collaborate and see what’s possible.
