I am a design blogger, decorative artist, designer and home stager
I have always loved music and the arts - and for the last 13 years, I have been pursuing them more fervently. I write a design blog, The Colorful Bee and I own a decorative painting and design company, Studio of Decorative Arts - and a home staging company - Beautiful Staged Homes. My artistic skills enable me to quickly revamp a single room...or any home that is for sale - without expensive demolition or costly replacement.
I love creating something out of nothing - I have been doing it my whole life. If I have a blank sheet of paper - I'll create art, music or poetry. A blank wall will always become something especially beautiful, if someone gives me a few hours to work on it.
I am learning to use technology (I am blogging and tweeting!)...but I'd rather be designing, painting and staging...& singing!
My designs and decorative painting projects have been featured in books, online magazines and design sites, newspapers and design blogs such as: Houzz, Newsday, HGTV.com, Living With Wine, Royal Design Studio design blog and many others. I also write my own music (and I am in a band, Under the Influence, where we play mostly 60s through 90s acoustic music. I also write comedy - especially funny songs. I did stand up for several years in NYC. I was picked among 1000s of performers to be on "America's Funniest People"
