These are two custom silhouettes that I created for a client in Chicago of her two dogs, Bernie and Henry. I am also happy to capture your children or a loved one in any size or color combination. These would make a great gift for a birthday or the holidays. Contact me for more info here.
I hope that you all have an outstanding weekend and I will see you on Monday!
The October issue of Elle Decor is an especially juicy one that features the homes of some fashion industry leaders such as Ralph Lauren, Frederic Fekkai and Jeanine Lobell, whose living room is featured in the above photo (by William Waldron).
The Lobell/Edwards residence is full of light, style and verve and the best part: they show a LOT of rooms, which is something you don't often see when a magazine does a spread on someone's home. Designer Rafael Cardenas really infused their living environment with joi de vivre.....check it out for yourself on the newsstand or online here.
I hope that you had a good weekend! I am a little behind as I was out of town and am now trying to play catch-up with correspondence and work on a large scale commission that's due soon!
I love this room by designer Tracey Garet. the colors are great and that velvet sofa is calling me....looks to me like a perfect place to spend a few hours devouring some design books and my favorite magazines.

I just love it when I get an email from a happy customer who wants to show me how they've hung my work in their home, office or apartment. These photos are from Erin White in Virginia who has framed several of my chair prints very creatively. The bright hues of the prints really pop on the neutral gray walls. Thank you, Erin!
I want to wish Helena, the talented blogger who started A Diary of Lovely, a very happy 1 year anniversary! Helena's UK based blog is chock-full of great finds and interviews with artsy folks who make cool things.
I am sponsoring a give-away on her blog today, so be sure and stop by to enter and check out her fun blog. Tell her I sent you!
I recently discovered a great new design blog- Pagoda Press. The talented woman who runs this, Tessa McAuliff, wrote to tell me she was posting a mention on my work. She also put together some great collages of my work (below) Thanks, Tessa! You can check out the post here.
Tessa has a great eye for color and I love how she transformed her own daughter's room (below)
I must've been standing on my head lately because I have had a series of what some like to call "blonde moments". I completely forgot to announce the winner of the Dolce Dreams Give-Away yesterday as I had promised. I would like to congratulate Loui - you are the winner!
A huge thanks to Nathalie at Dolce Dreams for sponsoring the generous give-away.
**On a side note, I have been struggling with some carpal tunnel issues recently, so please forgive my lack of response to your comments. I am trying to nip a case of CTS in the bud by taking it easy with my keyboard. I do appreciate all of your comments and will get around to visiting your blogs again soon!
