candy colored studio podcast episode #137 - amanda herring of la petite maison antiques
a huge highlight of 2020 for me, was getting to know and work with the dynamic duo of amanda & scott herring of la petite maison antiques in draper, utah . soo much laughter, joy, and all things french {bien sûr}! there are so many moments where a message from amanda simply made my day. amanda and i sat down and chatted about her incredible journey in design, antiquing, entrepreneurship, working with a team & your family, supporting small businesses, collaborating and of course --- all things french. there are so many nuggets of wisdom hidden throughout and at the end we do a lightning round Q&A all en francais (sorry it cuts out a bit at the end...still learning lol)! enjoy, enjoy! click the spotify playlist below to listen to the songs that inspired the titles of all my paintings at la petite maison!

one of the things i struggle with most as an artist, is expressing verbally how i feel; why i create what i create. this is not the case for my dear friend annie blake. her words and art come together, support one another, lift & enlighten all who hear and see them...rare gifts indeed. for the past 7 years, annie has shared her gifts via her “november challenge”. different themes and different subjects, but november has been something i look forward to all year. this year, while she fights stage 4 pancreatic cancer, friends & collectors are sharing to keep the tradition going.
