Colour, colour and more colour; and why not! My personality is quiet in spirit and yet bold with enthusiasm. When Uncommon Joy was founded, I was in a position in my life where I had no choice but to fearlessly move forward or collapse and fade away. So, I picked up a paint brush, guided it through the “Flame” Orange acrylic paint and started to create my very first ‘Floor Mat’ titled “Sweet Dreams”.
The original intention for my work was to utilize them as Floor Mats; to place them on the floor where a “POP” of color was desired. Yet, as Uncommon Joy has unfolded, most who purchase a mat(s) can visualize them as Wall Art or use them as a Table Centerpiece.
My subject matter can be Anything and Everything. Each new canvas mat is created with the concept of bringing a smile to your face and warmth to your soul. They are durable, functional, whimsical and joyfully painted with bright and flamboyant colors.
I hope you take delight in them as much as I have creating them.
