Hello Chattanooga!

ImageThe new Positive Space studio is up and running in Chattanooga, TN!  This scenic city has a great appreciation for the arts and is home to  numerous galleries and art festivals.   Positive Space is now located inside of Chattanooga Workspace, a recently renovated building housing over 25 separate artist studios.    It has been great to meet and collaborate with the many talented artists representing  a variety of  unique art forms.   Image


Starting a New Chapter

For the last two and a half years my husband and I have called Houston TX home. I am proud to say that Positive Space has thrived here and I have had the honor to work with many talented designers and wonderful clients. It’s time to start a new chapter and I am relocating my decorative painting company to Chattanooga TN. I will still be working on projects in Houston through the end of the year. If you are interested in a project, there is a chance I can do it before I move but contact me soon! I will be opening a studio in Chattanooga in early 2013 and I can certainly still work with my TX clients. Fine art commissions and murals can be easily shipped and installed onsite. I will also still come back for larger jobs. I want to thank everyone in Houston for being so welcoming and for making my company so successful here!

Positive Space wins both awards for Best Wall Treatment at the 2012 ASID awards!

We are very pleased to announce that Positive Space received both the winning award and the honorable mention for the Best Wall Treatment at the 2012 ASID awards!   You can look for these two projects in the latest issue of Houston Design Resource Magazine!


Here is a closer look at the award winning projects!

The inspiration for this barrel ceiling mural came from the ancient frescoes in  the Roman house of Livia Drusilla.   The intent for this project was to imitate the ancient style and  composition  used at  Villa Livia, while creating a work that is truly unique and fitting for the client’s distinct  ceiling feature.    Metallic gold plaster was used as a base for the  mystical landscape.   As layers of thin paint were added,   the imagery was distressed giving it  a look of  timeworn elegance.

The walls are the focal point of this whimsical, elegant powder room.   Large scale tulip blossoms are scattered throughout the room stretching across paneling  and a doorway.    The captivating walls seem to come alive in this unique  space.   The antique dresser, once belonging  to the client’s grandmother, is fitted with a hand painted sink which served as the inspiration for the mural.  Traditional artist oil paint was  utilized  in this project which gave the mural it’s luscious rich color


Thank you to the American Society of Interior Designers  for this honor and thank you to my wonderful clients who allowed me to  use their homes as my canvas!
