Textile Treasures…NYSID Kravet Archive Exhibit Tour

If you love textiles and their history then it might just be time to experience the Archive of Archives curated by Kravet. Honored to be a part of this small intimate group associated with the New York Chapter of the IFDA to tour this exhibit at The New York School of Interior Design at 170 East 70th Street in New York City.

Preserving the history of these precious pieces so future generations can trace their legacy and learn from past artisans going back hundreds if not thousands of years is a true gift.

Special thanks to the Kravet family for sharing their love and appreciation for these incredible pieces of textile art.

Color, Chaos & Creativity…India

I had the pleasure of spending a week in India and my journey was really incredible. I was there on business and between our travels throughout New Delhi and Jaipur I was looking through my lens at this fascinating culture. Feeling blessed to travel for my job but even more blessed that I get to experience a country through color, food and the fabulous people I came in contact with.
