My buddy, Yvonne and I collaborated a gallery opening to honor our beloved friend, Alyssa. Alyssa and her unborn daughter, Sutton were taken to early on a cold December morning in 2014. I struggled thru grief and heartache and inside that sadness, Mother & Daughter was created. With encouragement from each other and our loved ones, Yvonne and I did it!
Thank you WHCC & Perfect Posters for your generous sponsorship. Thank you Q.arma Building for your encouragement and the experience. Thank you Wild Acorn for seeing a vision and contributing your woodworking talents. Thank you to everyone that participated in the creation of Mother & Daughter, without you my story would have never been told. And thank you to all that attended, we are so humbled by the kindness and feedback from you all!
Collaborating with a stylist has been on my Dream To Do list for years. It finally happened and I have never loved a body of work so much! Tina, the talented & beautiful inside and out stylist, rocked her vision. We came to Not the Everyday concept together, she being a professional hair stylist, wanted an opportunity to explore her creative side as well as building up her portfolio. I found the model, the young, fresh faced, stunning Taylor, a 2015 graduate about to leave for college. Why Taylor? Well it’s Not the Everyday you see two different color eyes.
This is the start a beautiful collaboration and I can not wait to see what our next project brings.
