I have been a stay at home mom for almost 10 years. My beautiful girls are 8 and 10 years old and still keep me busy every minute. We are holding steady at 2 cats and 1 dog – there have been a lot of furry friends at our house in the past. Freshly Worn Furniture opened in October 2016. It has been my dream to share the joy of painting with others. Sharing the experience of creating something beautiful brings joy to me but also my workshop participants. It inspires me to teach more and find new techniques to share.
I have always looked for things to keep me busy. Painting fulfills my creative side and inspires me with the color and texture. I get inspiration from the furniture pieces themselves. My husband laughs at me but I always say the piece will tell me what color it wants to be and I wait until it does. My collections change but right now I am drawn to vintage padlocks with the original keys, old paint brushes (that was inspired by Marian) and vintage chalkboards. Boxwood is my fast favorite MMSMP color with Luckett’s Green very close behind. I adore the brilliant pigments and tones that pop up when painting with milk paint. I am surprised by the beauty milk paint brings every time I use it.
