And the birth of the furniture...

After much blood, sweat and tears in some disasterous craft shows I delivered my first commission to redo a dear friend's end table that was so far removed from his personal taste.
His love a Korean soap opera, Frida Kahlo and Day of the Dead iconography came through to become a piece he loves.

Another dear friend commissioned me to redo her great-grandmother's bookcase. Her travels to South Africa resonate deeply within her as well as her love of Frida. Desmond Tutu's "Ubuntu" speech resides over Frida's commanding presence. The strength of two vibrant people.
