clarity is a good thing…

Just a little chat from me to you …….

First of all, 2009 was a fantastic year for knack! I met so many new faces,
had painting projects galore, a book deal, and an installation in times square!
I’m so inspired to keep on creating and transforming! Thank you for being
friends and supporters!

With growth, there comes change. As I poured over the numbers and goals
that I have for knack, it became apparent that a little bit of shifting around
needed to be made in order to accommodate the growth, and continue to
produce the product that you all have come to know and love. My studio
space is limited, and because of the huge messes that I tend to create it
became harder and harder to stop production and set everything up for
First Fridays. So, I have decided knack will not be open For First Fridays
this year……BUT…. I will be doing a show in the Spring, and a Fall event
when the Design Sponge book comes out. Stay tuned for more details
to come!
There are still plenty of ways to get your hands on some knackage! If you
are local, you can visit Antiques on Augusta daily or make an appointment
to pop by the studio during the week. For those of you who live out of state,
you can visit my etsy shop to purchase your piece and have it delivered to
your front door!
I look forward to helping each and every one of you create beautiful, inviting
spaces that tell your personal design story in 2010!
