Home renovations are a gift and a curse. They are stressful, expensive, inconvenient, and time consuming but it is so worth it when your vision comes to life. This is a love of mine to transform spaces. Here is the before and after a of the new master suite and yes there used to be a kitchen upstairs. Holla at me if you need some help planning your vision. 3 more spaces to renovate left but I’m taking a break. Please scroll through for before and after.

We are pleased to announce our 18” x 18” small works exhibit at the artdc gallery. This show offers us the opportunity to open the gallery doors to anyone who wants to show. We break down the barriers of the traditional gallery gatekeeper role that may prevent emerging artists access to exhibit. All works are limited to 18” x 18” or less which often places it in a very affordable range! This is a unique opportunity to connect with new and emerging artists!
