Sitting on a Velvet Throne

VTD (Velvet Throne Designs) has been my baby for a while now.  It's evolved so much, just as I have, and I'm so excited and proud that Etsy has selected my Line22 painting to be on the main Art section page on their website! Woo Hoo!!!

We did it!  Through this blog and throughout my time within the Etsy community I felt that I've been surrounded by so much love and positive energy and I've been so blessed to always hear your lovely words and positive comments.  When I say "WE" did it - I really mean we because a lot of my inspiration comes from you guys and how happy I feel when I read my emails or hear how excited my clients are when they receive their pieces.  It constantly inspires me to be able to create something that brings happiness into someone else's home.  I love creating beautiful pieces with vibrant colors because without color our world would be a pretty bland place to live.  So, I hope to keep bringing color into your lives and your homes - so please keep the positive energy flowing! ;)

Speaking of, here's a few more pieces that I was able to put up in my shop today.  I'll be quite busy within the next few weeks working on commission pieces, so there's a little bit of a wait time at the moment, but if you're interested please don't hesitate to email me with any questions at

* P.S. - Valentine's Day is just around the corner, don't forget to give your walls a "Pink" me up this V-Day with one of my lovely pieceswink wink ;)

The Black Lace Mask - by VTD

I can't believe Halloween is here again! I have always LOVED black lace masks so I thought I would add this to my SHOP.  Come check it out!

Like I had mentioned in my other posting ~ Even if you don't plan on being Catwoman this year, it would still be gorgeous to wear with just a LBD, some bright red lipstick, and a hot pair of heels!
Or flip it and wear it this way...

Velvet Throne New Collection - Abstract Art Now Available

Hi Everyone,
I've launched my Abstract Art Collection of paintings in my SHOP this morning.  Please come by and take a look at my online gallery.  I've been working hard putting a collection of art pieces together that would bring a bit of glamour to your walls.  To me, a good piece of art compliments the space around me and makes me smile every time I look at it.  I hope that my pieces can make you feel that way also.

If you're searching for a specific piece you may have seen in a previous posting and can no longer find them in my shop, it might have already been sold - but if there are any specific colors you are drawn to and would like me to do a special piece for you please send me an email

Thank you to all of you for all of your lovely words and support.  
I hope you enjoy the collection.

Love & Cheers,

Dresser Dress-up!

My dresser is probably the first thing I look at when I get up in the morning and the last thing I look at before I go to bed at night.  Aside from having it just be a set of drawers that house my clothes, it's also a display area for my perfume bottles and some of my everyday jewelry.  So, since I look at it quite frequently, it's important to me that I keep it organized, clean, and of course really pretty to look at!

Adding the perfect piece of artwork can really help brighten up your day, or evening.  Here are some ideas for dressing up your dressers ;)

*All artwork shown below are my own and I will be launching 14 new pieces on my Etsy Shop tomorrow.  I hope you all enjoy it and I can't thank you enough for all your support.


Lean it as a colorful backdrop...

...or use it as a jewelry tray!

Find a piece that makes you smile every time you look at it! ;)

My Paintings - Coming Soon to Velvet Throne

Happy Monday!

I was asked to do a couple commissioned paintings so my workspace at home is now covered with paint splatter (which is actually looking pretty cool with all the colors mixed together)!  Here are a few pieces that I've been busy working on lately.  I've also decided to add some original 8x10 paintings to my Velvet Throne Shop soon since I've had some readers email me inquiring about them.  Hopefully within the next week or two I'll be able to launch them online.  

Please subscribe above to get more info on the launch date or if you're interested in larger commissioned paintings please send me an email at

Thank you everyone for all your positive support and emails.  I always love hearing from you guys!

I hope you have a great week everyone!
