I discovered the love for art and design after winning the grand prize for a kindergarten coloring contest (a box of cracker jacks + a ribbon) . To this day it is one of my most vivid memories. A coloring book picture of a dog & three crayon colors… black, brown + yellow. Wildly inspired by pattern, design history + what can be reimagined from those finds. I have created along side Sarah for over 25+ years now and am ever grateful that being apart of the great team at Patina Vie has allowed creating to be part of my everyday life. I’m so happy now to share my passion + ever evolving thoughts on canvas with you.
