The COVID-19 crisis has shaken the foundation of businesses across the board, from the largest to the smallest (like me, just one person wearing all the hats), demanding we figure out how to adapt in order to survive in this ever-changing environment. It also provides impetus to evolve and an opportunity to let our light shine the way ahead.
When all the norms of business abruptly came to a standstill, I hit the ground running energized with ideas of a new way forward that blend creativity with a core value of well-being, and began exploring channels beyond brick and mortar to share these items. Art isn't just for the walls anymore- I'm excited to expand into applying my painting, photography, and graphic design work to all sorts of useful products for your stylish home and healthy lifestyle... good vibes by design! More on that to come, but here is just a peek at a few of the new items on the way!
Fine art to add style to your space
Workout wear for a healthy body & mind • Weekend gear to get outside & unwind
Behind the scenes has been a paint-flying, product-designing, picture-snapping, keyboard tapping whirlwind of creative activity! Although you haven't seen much evidence on the surface yet, everything is in a state of constant forward motion with developing merchandise, researching print partners, testing products, and building a brand new online store (which will replace this website).
Like any massive undertaking, this one is not without a myriad of challenges to navigate, and of course the complicating ripple effects of COVID-19 are felt in every aspect of life and business as well. While I can't yet predict precisely when the whole package will be ready to premier, I wanted to be open about the process of getting there, and let you know I'm really looking forward to the day I can share it with you!
In the meantime, Arts by the Bay Gallery has re-opened, and I'll be the FEATURED ARTIST for their next show! Busy creating, painting, printing, framing... doing everything I can to make your visit to the gallery an uplifting and enjoyable experience in this time when we can all use a little art therapy! Mark your calendar- "Good Vibes" debuts JUNE 26! Check out the events page for details!
I hope you too are finding silver linings in these challenging times, and never forgetting to let your light shine!
