giveaway + Dana Mooney
I recently met an amazing up and coming local artist Dana Mooney who has generously agreed to give away a piece of her beautiful art to one lucky reader (so stay tuned for a contest this week!) I was an instant fan as soon as I saw her work (check out few of my favourites below). Starting out as a make-up artist and gradually getting into the Interior Design & art fields, Dana's work provides a unique combination of colour and form. Using watercolour techniques with Acrylics, Dana has created a few different series so far (Birch trees, Abstract and Paper Works). Clearly, I am not the only one who loves her bold use of colour since The Cross Decor & Design will start selling pieces from her Abstract series this spring.
I always encourage clients to invest in original pieces when they can to add the the character of their home with something that's one of a kind. One of the other great things about working with local artists like Dana is that you aren't limited to buying "off the rack". Commissioning an artist for a piece of work is the best way to get exactly what you need for your home. There's nothing more custom than getting a piece of art with the exact colours and sizes that your particular space requires! Looking to add a new piece of art to your collection?
