There is nothing like a weekend with a warehouse full of artists to get the creative juices flowing. Rena Paris, my Wallovers’ partner and I, set out for Cincinnati to display our stencil line and promote the upcoming class at Gary Lord’s Prismatic Painting Studio this May 10,11.

Rena worked the stencil sales while I concentrated on presenting finishes and giving attention to

customers who wanted to know more about us. We were surrounded by artists doing the same.

From gorgeous cabinet finishes

To glass mosaic panels

We were all like kids in a candy shop around surrounded by colors and textures!

Naturally, it wouldn’t be a decorative artist event without someone fun and games. Samples of newdesigns became the latest runway attraction.


I need serious time in the studio to get the creative juices flowing! In preparation for an upcoming Studio Open House in Cincinnati on March 20 I have to think new and exciting! Gary Lord’s Prismatic Painting Studio brings hundreds of sophisticated wall finishers to his Open House each year. We want to¬†WOW his students with some fabulous new ideas with color and pattern.

Soft, gorgeous and glittery

Colorful, tropical and artistic

bold and contemporary

There is no end to the possibilities with patterns, especially when I can just reach for a stencil from the Wallovers line. They are so easy, anyone can use them!!! Thanks Gary for giving me a reason to get cookin’ on some new ideas! ¬†Looking forward to teaching a 2 day workshop at Gary’s studio in May!
