With corporate experience in Human Resources and Marketing, in 2007 I co-founded a company that matched women with flexible and part-time work opportunities, at a time when these concepts were not commonplace. After eight plus years navigating the start-up scene and growing the business to regional scale, we sold the company to a national staffing firm. Thinking about what was next, I noticed that a through-line to my experience is connecting. Leaning into this natural skill and my long-time passion for art, I quietly launched ART FOR THE HOME in 2017.
It started with a simple request from a friend who needed help finding a piece of art - a show stopper for the dining room. Connecting to artists online and visiting various art shows, I uncovered the just right abstract with rich colors, reminding my friend of the view from her favorite vacation spot. From there, things grew and I found a niche in helping homeowners and commercial clients complete their space by adding art that not only elevates their design style, but also tells their story.
So, I've tried to paint a masterpiece and know that even the "simplest" abstract is not easy to create!! And I discovered that it is not just the finished product that we love, but it is the process of how that piece comes to be that draws us in. I love how artists use color to communicate with the world - often times communicating more through a painting than words could ever do. I believe that art is an exchange of energy that we might not be able to see or explain but that makes us feel something - it connects us.
I created ART FOR THE HOME not to just find the right piece of art, but to connect people to the art. It’s a place to get to know amazing artists and the depth behind the artwork. To find something new for your wall that makes you feel something. A place to share to share stories, to gain a glimpse into the process. And to learn something from artists and their work that we can apply to our every day.
