The Paris Marketplace, Q Haute Chalk Mural

The Paris Marketplace - Rustic buildings with the old cobblestone roads. This sets the scene in the current chalk mural at Q Haute Cuisine. Chef Michele was a pleasure to conceptualize with.  He's such a positive creative force at this establishment!

Audra and Mike Celtic Knot Mural

I worked with Audra and Mike via email to design this mural for their wedding reception at Q Haute. She sent me copies of her wedding invitation, which had this lovely Celtic knot design with a heart in it.  Drafting up some nice typography so that their guests would not mistaken who's party they were arriving for... Audra and Mike chose the asymmetrical design of the couple drafts I sent to them. The colors in the knots reflected the lovely blue flower bundles, which had hints of green and yellow in them as well.

Thanks again and Congratulations!

Breakfast at Tiffany's, New York 1960s Themed Chalk Mural

This was a custom chalk mural done for a Breakfast at Tiffany's Bridal Shower at Q Haute Cuisine! 
What a fun theme. I recently watched the movie after hearing about this project. Crazy I haven't seen it till now. Audrey Hepburn was a darling and so was "Cat".  The poor Cat scene of him sulking in the rain was just too darn cute.

I met for tea with the sister of the bride, Natalie, along with event planner Alexandra Joy (AJ) of Pink and Honey Event Styling.  They envisioned a 1960s New York Skyline, with the famous quote from the film's theme song, Moon River. I was really glad they liked the sketches I showed to them, and thrilled at the end result.

AJ put together a blog post with incredible photos of how the event all came together. The styling and details were incredible, what a memorable celebration. I was so glad to have played a part in it.
