From my earliest days as an aspiring artist in high school, I seemed to gravitate to creating artwork-by-request. Those around me who knew I was artistic would ask me, "can you draw my house and add in some old design elements to create what's in my mind?" One thing led to another and much to my surprise, by the time I graduated from my senior year I had already sold nine custom commissions to my teachers and friends' parents.
Over the years, I have sharpened my interpretive skills which has gained me many clients who appreciate my talent for "taking an idea out of someone's head and putting it on paper."
This skill translates wonderfully to the world of Interior Design. Besides the fact that I LOVE working with other creative professionals, I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of creating the perfect piece to complete a designer's specific vision.
Below is one example of a collaboration with Downey Designs & Interiors, Inc. Downey Designs provided me with fabric swatches, finished size requirements and a deadline for installation. I planned and created four original paintings to compliment the designer’s concept. This included working architectural brickwork from the historic home’s entryway into the artwork, essentially bringing the outdoors inside!
As a fellow professional in the field of art, I strive to work with designers' budgets to meet the best of design and price for each project. I'm always grateful when I have the opportunity to create art for interior designers!
