Shabby Custom Sofa...

Although I've been super busy working on tons of new items for the my shop. I managed to take a break to work on custom projects for my wonderful clients.
Recently I was hired to create contemporary style sofas (rolled arm) that I am sharing here. I have four new sofas in this style, as well as a few modern and vintage style sofas coming to the shop soon.

I'm thinking I will have to close the shop to work on staging and photos, which take so much time. I will reopen with lots of fun items for your mini homes. Working on the details will keep you posted.

Updated Settee...

I updated this wonderful settee with 100% white linen, took away the arms, added trim, darken the legs and added a lovely left printed graphic pillow filled with sand to give a realistic look.

My House...

This one has an interesting story. I saved a bunch of drawings my daughter created with she was in preschool. I thought they were interesting, and maybe I could incorporate them into one of my "yearly" paintings. That super cool, crazy figure is her contribution to the painting. I thought the end result was whimsical and fun. The original now hangs in her room, find the mini version in my shop, fabulouslyflawedmini.

My secret big dream has always been to be a famous painter, but making one painting a year is just not going to make it happen. So I make miniatures (which I love).

I enjoy taking my "one painting a year" paintings and turning them into miniatures. Sometimes, I play around with Photoshop to change the colors and get different looks. Below is a piece I completed many years ago. The original is red, but playing around in the program, I settled on this wonderful Khaki color.
This one is called, "Undressing". Find it in my Etsy shop.
