Hello friends, it has been a while! I am sorry for the long silence but I’ve been very busy cranking out the art, home decor items, and furniture aplenty. Just as Spring is emerging here in beautiful Virginia, Art is emerging from my messy studio (but I know where everything is.) It is most definitely a good time of productivity for me. I’ve been spending countless hours in the studio… so much that several of my friends and family have encouraged me to get some of it out there, so that’s what I’m doing! I’m actually moving my booth space from one store to another. SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: Starting May 1 I will be a vendor at Deep Creek Vintage here in Fredericksburg, Va. I am so excited! This is no ordinary storefront however. The building itself is living history: a 5000 sq ft, 1750’s manor house. There are original architectural elements to the house, exposed brick, creaky stairs, hauntings….Wait, what? Yes, I said hauntings. They even have guided ghost tours there! But back to the lovely things. Not only does Deep Creek Vintage carry antiques and vintage pieces, but you can also find restored and painted furniture, unique repurposed items, a wealth of art as well as art products. It truly is a haven for those of us who cherish beautiful things. So as far as my work is concerned, when owner Cheryl Roy approved me to join the team there, I was over the moon. (Thank you, Cheryl!) A lot of the work I’ll be displaying involves the use of image transfers and Iron Orchid Designs home decor molds. (You may recall my recent post on using the molds, Embellishing with Appliques and Onlays.) For some reason, the combination of these mediums has opened up a wellspring of ideas and creativity in me. I don’t remember working this hard at something I love since I was in Art School…(loving what you do makes all the difference.) I can’t wait to share my work with others and to get so much inspiration for the other vendors at Deep Creek Vintage.
I will post pictures of everything once I move into the space, but meanwhile if you are within driving distance to Deep Creek Vintage, you have to come and check this place out! I promise you will be swooning…as only we dainty, creative women (and some men) can swoon. Ha!
