Check this out…I remember clearly thinking it was a good idea to cut my own hair for the school photo. I keep a copy on my desk to remind me not to take life too seriously. A health scare a few years ago became a beautiful gift in that I started living my life and making my art with an “If not now, WHEN?” attitude. My life is infinitely full because of the people I’ve met and the magical moments I’ve experienced along the way.
And then there’s Ouida…even with everything buttoned down, the wild child beneath always finds a way to break loose. From Lake Charles, LA, Ouida was practically raised in toe shoes - the reason, no doubt, for her always elegant demeanor: she’s as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. When I’m out on a ledge, she’s calmly making tea… and when something gets lost, she’s the one who finds it. But she’s also the one that makes me laugh the hardest, suggests the cherry on top of many designs, and working with her makes it fun to come to work every day.
The third member of our team is tech-maven Kristi Mayer. We create it, and Kristi translates our designs into a language the world wide web understands. She is wise beyond her years, and invaluable to our process. Another reason to love coming to work.
