I've always been an artist and entrepreneur. I grew up in Long Island and studied design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. In 2006, I moved to Arizona and started an award-winning business in faux and decorative painting.
Once I got married and became a mom to two boys, a service-based business requiring long hours on site was no longer an option for me.
I started doing large-scale paintings for individual clients & local showrooms. That experience, coupled with my award winning decorative painting skills has sharpened my techniques. Allowing me to harness the depth & energy I put behind my Art. I project purpose & meaning behind each painting. I know people feel it when they connect with a specific piece & it’s taken my art to another level.
The transition began when we moved five years ago and I was home with our 10-month-old son "Judson" I couldn't take the original, hand painted, hot air Balloon animal themed, wall mural and nursery designs i had painstaking done from our previous home. So when we moved, i wanted to recreate my son's nursery. I turned the hand paintings into into a set of reproduction fabric, baby nursery decals. From that I created a designer kit that includes the wall decals, an installation guide and color swatches. Which then led to a children’s online store at JudsonLane.com
