I love art, real art, good art. I guess being raised in a coastal Marin town filled with artists created the art lover that I am today. It was a truly wonderful life-school to hone ones eye for art. And, I think that with art the more you see and look at, the better skilled you are to appreciate good art in a variety of mediums.

I have been working on creating a collection of galleries and local artists that I love and want to use in my design projects. It is a labor of love, exhilarating, time consuming and a whole lot of candy for both the eyes and the soul! Above, I've included some of my favorite artists that are piquing my interest right now.

I tend to be drawn to texture, black and white, impact, color. I like to use art that has impact whether it is in the boldness of the form or the color. I like art to be large in terms of scale. To take up space in some way and create an impression. That impression can be loud or it can be soft and quiet but it needs to be heard in some way and create a feeling. God, I love good art!
