Paper + glue = inspiration






I spent two days last week turning two boring doors that looked like this...














into doors that looked like this...

























My friend Ted Watson, who owns two wonderful shops in Seattle, asked me to transform these doors at his Watson Kennedy Fine Home store located in downtown Seattle.

It was a vintage montage, piecing together a type of paper quilt if you can imagine...using pages from turn of the century encyclopedias, well-worn novels, insights from old journals and other ephemera that spoke of an era and topics of long ago...all of it the original pages...no copies here!

Spending time in such a palace of inspiration was delightful...
birds are a constant love for me...


























green harkens the beauty of spring...

I spied my collage coffee table (covered with pages from famous novels)
along with my typewriter notecards tweaked especially for Ted...

































Bailey, the shop dog, keeps a close eye on all activity...as one enjoys a cup of French tea...
If you're in the neighborhood, stop in to see the doors...and to experience the wonderful sights, sounds and smells of this exquisite shop.

And if you're interested in transforming your own wall, door, tabletop, or any other type of surface, just email me and I'll be happy to take care of that for you!
