1. what is your occupation?
artist + designer. i make art + everyday objects for sale online, almost exclusively, through my own shop, the small object. however, a portion of my work week is also spent with my 4 year old niece + nephew.
2. explain the background/story behind three of the items in your photo.
the sewing desk was purchased a local antique mall for $20 which being deemed an "antique" mall was a great deal so i snatched it up. the lamp was from a thrift store that has since closed down. the red arms of a chair you see is an old metal desk chair that i have painted + reupholstered three times in the past five years. it's a favorite of my cat, chloe who also doesn't like to get her nails trimmed. (hence the frequent need to re-upholster this item.)
3. what are three of your favorite places for finding things for your home?
old mill antique mall in columbia, SC
