I am always looking for inspiration from my everyday surroundings and experiences. Many times I am inspired by what hasn't happened yet, the anticipation is exciting and full of wonder so it stimulates my creativity. This year is a very special year for two of my dearest friends, marriage! So I couldn't get my mind off of the beauty and whimsy that everyone involved experiences and it got me thinking...we should have an event inspired by weddings. Our event is titled "Wedding Whimsy" and it will be part of the Pearl's First Thursday Art Walk on June 3rd from 5-9pm.
One of the most creative and kindest artists we know, Julie, with The Withies will be one of the special guests along with a favorite jewelry designer, Amy Olson Designs. My good friend Kathy Zell will be designing one of her beautiful and whimsical mannequins for our window and Vickie Wooten with GossamerDesigns has some special crowns in store for the event.
The Withies has created beautiful paper wedding cakes, embelished with vintage lace, pearls and whimsical ornaments.
Amy Olson has been busy designing jewelry for brides and her wedding party. Amy uses a variety of stones and metals to create her unique designs. Her designs work well with Thea's Interiors, they have a vintage inspired warmth about them.
Come in and enjoy these amazing artists from Portland during our Wedding Whimsy event on June 3rd. We will be serving wine and edibles while you meet the artist, see their new designs and shop.
I have loved antiques since I can remember. I am an old soul I guess, they are the source of my inspiration. I live in Portland, Oregon with my wonderful husband and two beautiful children.
I have a BA in Visual Design (photography) from the University of Oregon.
