So I’m on a bit of a mission these days. To plaster the city with cool, affordable art. One of the best parts of my job is the hunt. I love discovering new art, rediscovering history through vintage finds and mixing the two where it makes sense.
I love the way things reference each other unintentionally and relate over time. Relationships intrigue me. I guess thats why I became a marriage and family therapist in the first place.
Second in importance to the relationship is whether therapist and client are a good fit. So when somebody asks me for a referral, I encourage them to be a savvy consumer and shop around until they find the person that best suits their goals for treatment.
When faced with the decision of where to send my kids to school, I considered what was a good fit for them and us as a family. Not every kid learns the same way. One of the endless jobs of being a parent is determining the environment where your kids will best thrive.
The same holds true for art and design. Certain things pop when grouped together in the right location. That vintage portrait of a handsome stranger you overlooked might be just the thing to compliment photos of your own family. I love injecting humor and whimsy when I can get away with it.
I’ve got several shows I’m curating this year. And I’m always on the lookout for unexpected places to foist art upon the eyes of unsuspecting strangers. Walls in need of love are everywhere. If you see one hopefully you’ll think of me.
In other exciting news, I’ve added an art rental component to my business. Keep your eyes peeled for Lisa Golightly’s paintings in a Lincoln car commercial. And stay tuned for an opportunity to have legendary street artist Becca install one of her girly paste-ups at your home or business.
