Part of being a fiber artist is the fun of getting to transform not only private home spaces but commercial ones as well. Unlike a show that lasts only a month or two – designing for commercial spaces is long term. I loved being asked by SERGIO’S restaurant in Grand Junction to transform the walls so that those in the dining room feel like they are in a wonderful environment. This is what I did for them.
Sergios Restaurant is an Italian steak house right behind my shop in Grand Junction, CO. They moved into a large space covered entirely in very ugly carpeting on the wall. Earlier this year, Jim White, the owner asked me if I could do something for their walls. This wall was the first one. Later I added another wall in purple and 3 large silk painted panels and some room divider screens.
