moss

During a run earlier this Summer, I noticed some cool tree bark. I stopped to take a closer look and decided to use this color scheme in a future project.
This project: a large wall hanging with woven sticks which will incorporate these small canvases! Photos posted soon...

bloom

"There came a time when the risk
to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk
it took to bloom"

rooftop jungle

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to check out a rooftop exhibit at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY. An evolving structure made of bamboo:


"Big BambĂș is a growing and changing sculpture―a vast network of 5,000 interlocking 30- and 40-foot-long fresh-cut bamboo poles, lashed together with 50 miles of nylon rope. It will continue to be constructed throughout the duration of the exhibition. The first phase of the structure―measuring about 100 feet long, 50 feet wide, and 30 feet high―was completed by opening day, April 27. The artists and rock climbers are continuing to build up the eastern portion of the sculpture to an elevation of 50 feet. An internal footpath artery system grows along with the structure, facilitating its progress."

urban office

I am thrilled to be working on the interior design for a new office in the warehouse district! Last week we visited the site -- huge windows, exposed brick, and these 'rough luxe' columns:

Construction begins in April with an August completion date. Stay tuned for 'After' photos later this Summer!

fresh air

After two weeks of being inside due to windchills, we took in some warm fresh Arizona air. My son's first trip on an airplane! I didn't take one moment forgranted on this special trip with family.

color trends

Inspiration boards for a color forecasting presentation. Four very different trends: rooted, simplified, refreshed, and treasured.
So fun to cut, glue, staple, and tape...like being a kid in art class again.
