Custom Fabric for Fairwinds Hotel!

I was contacted by James Risinger who is an Architect and Interior Designer in Miami, Florida. He had seen images of my fabric online and thought they would be a good option for art work in the newly renovated Fairwind Hotel project he was working on. His vision was to frame ten, 18" x 22" pieces to hang throughout the hotel. James was great to work with and as an artist himself he left free creative discretion to me for whatever I felt would work in South Beach! 

Below are the unframed pieces ready for shipping. 

I look forward to installation photos so I can live vicariously through my artwork... I've only been to South Beach briefly years ago. This may be the closest I get for a very long time!

Today's Color Palette - Desert Influence!

With unusually warm temperatures in the Denver high desert area I was able to paint fabric outside. 
I trimmed some branches to create an outdoor creative space. I was happy to find my work table tucked right into the niche. I took a deep breath, calmed my brain and thought about the beautiful desert colors that have become part of my landscape... here are the results!

The Studio is Up and Running!

It's been 6 months since I packed up the studio in Connecticut and moved 2,000 miles to resettle in Colorado. The relocation has been all things... fun, scary, exciting, challenging and just what we were looking for! 

The basement was unfinished leaving it ready to create a workable space for a studio. I am so thrilled to have a creative space that fits my style! 
 
Oscar and his crew were awesome - I would absolutely recommend them! 


Sheet Rock made it start to feel like a real space!

Sweet isn't it! 

Although not everything has found a home and nothing is on the walls it feels comfortable and the rest will eventually settle into place!

You have no idea how exciting it is to have supplies within easy reach! 

We kept a third of the space unfinished for my wet area - SO excited! 

Let the creativity flow!
