Desert Bliss Collection, Our newest GardenWalls Wall Coverings

Happy to announce to the world our GardenWalls, Desert Bliss Collection at Gardenhouse. The inspiration for this collection is the Joshua Tree, which I fell in love with on a trip to Joshua Tree State Park in the California Desert, near Palm Springs. My husband Gary and I stayed at the heavenly Sagewater Spa in Desert Hot Springs. The play of color and light on the beautiful surrounding landscape as I was floating in the mineral pool were just enough to get me to grab my camera and capture a bit of the desert for this collection.

I am very excited to begin this blog. So many wonderful things have happened, but where do I begin?

GardenWalls Installed at Hilton Garden Inn, New York

I know! I’ll start with the Hilton Garden Inn project. A few months ago, our nature-inspired wall art GardenWalls, Japanese Spring Collection, Yellow were installed in the 40ft. wall of the lobby lounge in the Hilton Garden Inn, Staten Island, New York. I worked closely with interior designer Susan Huckvale Arann of American and International Design, to make it all happen. The finished installation looks spectacular, and I was so happy that both Susan and the client were pleased as well. I love it when a great concept and vision are brought to reality. Thank you, Susan, and Hilton Garden Inn for the opportunity.

Hamburg Kennedy Photographs Curated Exhibition for Foster Care

I was very honored that prestigious Hamburg Kennedy Photographs, New York, selected my photographs to be exhibited in Fotos for Foster Care. This specially curated collection donates all profits on sales to Foster Care Counts, an important organization that provides numerous services and funding to foster care throughout the US. I was thrilled to find that my work was featured along side my hero, Diane Arbus, as well as, Sally Mann, and Elliott Erwitt. To be a part of such a wonderful and essential project is a wonderful experience, and to be featured with my heroes another!
