26 January 2009


My grandmother Amie taught me little French songs and poems when I was a child growing up along the torpid Gulf Coast. 

She also insisted I have art lessons, and at the same time, I watched her as she furnished and decorated her Queen Anne mansion on the water with its mahogany paneling and its endlessly high ceilings.  Oh, and did I mention the seven fireplaces? 

Voila!  Before you could say "croissant" I was hooked on France,  art and design.  A designer was born. 

Amie is long gone, and missed. I took a while to find my place in the world of art and design. I'm staying!
