Have I ever told you guys how my journey into interior design and decor begun? Well, its actually a very random story to say the least.
I’d always wanted to be a civil engineer so all the subjects I took in school were geared in that direction. Art, on the other hand, was mostly a hobby as I usually sketched portraits and dress designs when I was bored. So fast forward to when I was in SAINT MARY’S doing I.B. and as expected I was taking the science and math classes that would take me to that ‘glorious job’ as a civil engineer. On one of those days when I didn’t have a class my friend Yvonne asked me to escort her to her design class. So I did. Long story short, the teacher thought I wanted to join the class and I obliged her fantasies and stayed. At the end of the class I knew without a doubt that design was my destiny. I went home, told my mum and 2 weeks later I changed my subjects to those that would lead me to the designer I am today.
I’ve always been forever grateful to Yvonne for being some form of catalyst to that change. Unfortunately as life would have it we lost touch for many years, but a couple of weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised to find out that she was still creating beautiful artwork through her company SPOKEN ART. The unique thing about it is her pieces are inspired by poems her business partner writes.
