On my last blog post, I introduced my Familia, but my family most definitely includes my friends as well. I would like to start out with personally thanking the wonderful & talented interior designer and friend, Veronica Volani-Inza, for featuring my photographs in the Palm Beach Bungalow that she designed. The great news was that the beautiful beach home was published in Coastal Living Magazine. So great that now Veronica has a new showroom on Antique Row at 3631 South Dixie Hwy. West Palm Beach, Fl.
Then there is another dear friend, Kelly Luchini, an Art Appraisor/Art Advisor, whose work is very well respected here in Florida. I met Kelly about five years ago, while she was a director of a gallery where my work was exhibited. We became instant friends. Last weekend, I photographed Kelly, Rich, her husband, and their adorable son, Luca. Kelly, Rich and Luca moved into this beautiful Condo in Palm Beach Gardens, which I also photographed. Kelly and Rich own one of my photographs, Far & Away IX, in their beautiful new home. It makes me happy to see my photographs in the homes of collectors. When I walked into Kelly and Rich’s home and saw the photograph hanging, it was like looking at a member of my family – the same feeling I get when I look at the Luchini’s!
The beautiful Luchini Family!

Several weeks ago, my friends, Rhoni Epstein and Cris Pestana, came to West Palm Beach to visit on their way to Brazil. Rhoni and Cris own the heavenly Sagewater Spa, in Desert Hot Springs, CA., of which I wrote about a week ago. Rhoni was my photography rep for nine years, while my studio was located in San Francisco. Rhoni and I worked on major campaigns together, and we’ve been best friends ever since. Rhoni is now an amazing Creative Coach. While here in West Palm Beach, Rhoni and Cris met another fabulous friend, Jeri Muoio. Jeri is the Mayor of West Palm Beach. I met Jeri on a rough day, but her warmth and kindness completely transformed it, and has led to a wonderful friendship. Both Rhoni and Cris fell in love with Jeri. Rhoni mentioned she wanted to relocate to West Palm Beach just to support Jeri’s campaign. Love it when all my friends get together!
I am so grateful to have such a big family of friends and I will be introducing more as the blog unfolds. …
