Let's Take a Journey...

I guess a formal introduction is where I should start, I'm lover of everything to do with interiors mainly French. I love chocolate, champagne, great friends and family & definitely food!!! A good foreign film, a trip to the Art Museum or a new interior book will make my day! Oh and I'm also a painter. My first art class was when I was four years old in an art gallery in my home town. I was the only little one in my class and was I in heaven! I have a formal background in Interior Design and I worked many years in the furniture industry in St Louis, Missouri. Today I am dabbling in an art profession which includes murals and some wall art.

A perfect day for me would be window shopping in Saint Germain Des Pres with a fresh Baguette in hand from Paul's Bakery or perhaps sitting at home flipping through my favorite magazines with an iced sweet tea at my side & a sketch pad in hand thinking up my perfect home or maybe painting a playful mural capturing someones thoughts onto a wall where there are no boundaries.

In my blog I'd like to share my journey with you on my life, my loves and some of my works. I hope you'll be patient with me as I learn my way around the blog world and I'd love to hear your thoughts with me as I grow as a painter and designer. xoxo Miss Kris

Kris this is so exciting! Welcome! Your blog is GORGEOUS! After reading your first post I truly believe we are kindred spirits. I can't believe we live so far away from each other, we have so much fun together as mates lol. Perhaps someday you, me, Joni, Shawn, Judy, Claudia and any other francophiles like us could all meet in Paris for a blogging convention. Well thats what we could tell our husbands it is LOL ;)

I'm so completely in awe of your amazing works of art. You put my basic colour renderings to shame! lol. I would LOVE to see more of what you do, especially your murals.

Anna :)

Thank you Anna! I have been admiring your blog for awhile & it is because of your beautiful blog that I am going to take this journey. Perhaps someday we will all meet in Paris for that blogging convention, what fun we would have!!! I might have to get a crate to take all my goodies home with me, lol.

Thank you again for all your lovely comments...Kris
