Perret, Kay

After a 20-year career in the corporate world it was time for a change. “Here’s what I want,” I said to the universe. “I want to be creative. I want to love what I do. I want to be excited to get up in the morning and do it.” 

I didn’t know I wanted to be a decorative painter. I didn’t even know what that was! But I’ve been one for 12 years. I have found that furniture, in particular, takes on a life of its own as I’m working on it, and these chairs were no exception. 

Of course, when I’m working with a client I have a plan with approved samples before I start. But the nuances and backstory reveal themselves as I’m working, making the piece even better. 

So I got my wish. I love my job!
