Handmade, hand painted, custom designed wooden signs
What inspired you to start your business?
After retiring from the New York City Police department, I rekindled my love for art, painting and creating. My inspiration comes partly from my father, a retired carpenter, and my art background - having a degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design. Growing up as kid in Brooklyn, I was highly exposed to art - be it traveling on graffiti filled subway cars, spending hours in NYC museums or the street artists in Washington Square Park. I LOVE working with individuals, custom designing pieces for their homes or for unique gifts for their loved ones.
What makes your house a home?
What makes my house a home is the love and joy that I try to fill it with daily.
What's one thing you love to do that you get to do almost every day?
Spending time with my teenage son and painting! (of course)
What simple pleasures do you like to enjoy?
Spending time out in nature is my happy place - hiking in the woods, spending time by the ocean - breathing in the fresh air. Also, practicing and teaching yoga is one of my biggest joys.
Name one thing on your "bucket list."
Traveling across the United States!
Why did you choose to be part of Nest on Main?
I loved the whole concept of all different local artists coming together and making a nest for all to create and share their work. The energy of the space is so uplifting as soon as you walk through the doors!
