Jose-Vila-Watercolor-Wedding-Havana

Last year I was asked to be a part of this Havana Nights editorial with a dream team of creatives – and when I say dream team, I mean only that many of us had worked together before and just gelled. Held at The Lombardi House in  Los Angeles, California every moment was choc full of color and fun.  Slightly throwback but all with a modern hand, every flower, artwork detail and decor decision was driven by a Cuban aesthetic reminiscent of Mid Century glamour living. We contributed a full suite of stationery to include a cigar box invitation, hand […]

Mixed Media artist from the Netherlands, Anne ten Donkelaar calls her creations Flower Constructions.  I had to think on that phrase for a bit because as I have discovered, words, and how they make me feel have a big impact on my perception of things.  So the word “Construction” didn’t seem to at all give life to these delicate creations Anne visions.  The word seemed harsh and cold, masculine and immovable. So as I often do, I went to the dictionary as my assumed definition of a word doesn’t often align perfectly with the actual definition.  So here is what […]
