the intersection of art & design with Pencil & Paper Co.

I am excited to introduce my 2nd Art & Design feature. As a design-loving painter, I love getting to work with talented designers every day. Creating a beautiful space for people to enjoy is an art form that I admire. This series features some of the designers whose work I love and some of their thoughts regarding art.

Gen and I met over 13 years ago back when I designed clothes and she had the cutest storefront in Nashville and she’s been one of my dearest friends ever since. She and I share a love of bold color, vintage treasure hunting, and large cocktail rings. Gen has a way of creating spaces that are bold, collected, layered and full of character yet somehow manage to also be clean and edited. Whether it is in the clothes she wears or the rooms she designs, Gen has a unique signature style that I love.
