I’ve been nostalgic for New England lately. The smells, colors and air that begins to come up this time of year. Here is a video from director Brian Melton and the band :  The Looks of it – enjoy!
*Thanks Adrienne.


Scarfs : Even now in the early summer here in Miami there are great ways to wear one of my favorite accessories – Charlotte Linton, creator of Zoologist, is an amazing designer with beautiful patterns – check out her 2012 line for some  beautiful scarfs.

Blogger: I’ve also discovered  wonderful blogger Camille Styles  her DIY and Food sections are full of wonderful inspiration and ideas for everyone. I even did one of her DIY Transformed : Door to Door projects myself  (sea-foam door above)!

Music : Another one of my new favorite things is local band to Miami : Deaf Poets – If you havent heard about them yet – take the time to check them out and spread the word – they will be having a CD realease party Saturday, June 2 at our favorite music pub – Churchills – Hope to see you there!- do it! Here’s two of their music videos just to get you interested – Enjoy!

Jasper : Something new I’ve learned about this sweet pup of mine, is that he loves his carrots – Fav.!




It’s hard to believe it’s already been two months since Art Basel passed. Here are some images of what it was like.

There is also a great short series about the Wynwood Walls take the time and check it out.

Luis Garcia-Nerey

It’s always exciting to get back in the studio – I was lucky enough to have done that recently with friend and fellow artist Luis Garcia-Nerey. He is an extremely talented, local artist whom I’ve admired for several years now. He was invited to do a window display for Art Basel on Lincoln Road for the Art Center . He created a large scale sculpture made from cardboard, found wood, and a piano. It was an honor to help him with this project – please take some time to check him out either on his website or in his studio in the Art Center on Lincoln Road. Enjoy the video that was made during the install of the piece – Thanks again Luis!

From here to Hawaii

The McVays are moving to Hawaii and I couldn’t imagine them leaving without a board for Maddy to learn to ride on. It was my first board, and now it’s hers. It was fun to paint and I hope it will bring many smiles and new memories to the McVays. Love you all  – Merry Christmas, Safe travels and Just Keep Paddling.
