"Scenes from Piemonte Countryside, Italy 2002" by William Carter
This kind eyed famous gentleman has gone through difficult trenches to get this striking photograph. Getting off a train in Italy, he witnessed a rare magical moment that makes photographers love what they do. The sun shined through the cherry blossoms after the rain creating an ethereal glow, so he did everything he could to record this enchanting moment with his camera. To make the story short, he came back home, scanned his negative, stretched it through photoshop, then immortalized the photograph on canvas. We just displayed this yesterday and we've already received inquiries. How exciting! Don't you just love cherry blossoms?
Yes her work is just as adventurous as her name. This lady is not only alluring, charming and a trend-setter, but she is a delicate imaginative artist that puts an incredible about of time in each piece. All the individual items she makes is different and special. This lady walks the line between Spain and California. Her smile is shown through her work. Come get dazzled by her ability to convey collective ideas into one home decor piece. Have no room for a delightful mobile that took her two weeks or so to make? Then come get inspired by her creative cards. It will make you say no more to the mass produced. There are three things in life and that is to be kind, kind and kind. This is she.
This lady spontaneously dashed her beautiful pieces into our gallery. They're so lovely, especially in person. She has been in between blurred edges, fields, all the gifts nature gives us. She even paints on photographs. She has stepped outside of the boundaries and has created exquisite, astounding and perhaps even calming creations. Each piece has strong visual distinction. Come tip toe to our store, or even dash in to view this artist's pieces and stand in her world.
"Years spent exploring wild places and abandoned urban landscapes - and by minor scientific study. Principles of geology, botany, astronomy and physics inform both my content and process.
My process takes cues from the natural order. Multi-layered surfaces are built through dripping, pooling, brushing, marking, and sanding. Driven by exploration, chance and gravity, I find equilibrium between chaos and control.With veils of color, complex surfaces, mysterious light sources, and blurred edges, the work investigates change and the act of becoming."

This fabulous kind-hearted lady has wild side, but can be found in its sophisticated form of lovely comfort in her eco-friendly makeup bags. She has created a stylish form of rice bags. She pays just as much attention to the inside of her bags as the outside. Gorgeous hidden inner patterns make for what I like to call "happy insides." She has assorted bags placed with love in our store, with a range of vibrant colors and quiet colors with a little twist. She only uses re-purposed upholster fabric from our local communities. Come and seek a one-of-a-kind bag that helps the environment!
