New collaboration with coveted Design Company- Yabu Pushelberg

After over 12 years of sending my art e-mails to Yabu Pushelberg finally I got a response! When I first started doing my art work I was pretty naive and fearless calling and forming relationships with well known Interior Designers and architects that I had no business contacting. I had my top 10 design companies that I coveted doing a collaboration with and YP was maybe the very top. Each year I assumed relationship with the visionary owners George Yabu,  Glenn Pushelberg and their art rep Corrine Huard sending probably too many e-mails, mostly by complementing their work, and sharing mine. I am kind of surprised they didn’t lock out all of my new stick art e-mails!

I think I maybe heard back from Corrine once but nothing else over all the years. Finally about a month ago I heard back from George. He said,  “let’s see if we can make something happen. I will pass your light pictures along to my team.”

I was so surprised and  I could also tell that the new lights I have been doing are really amazing and have that certain something. Then a  project that they were doing needed some lights, although in reality it was too late in the process and the project was tight on money. Not a good place to fit me in!

Next time I hope I can get in from the beginning, have a budget and actually do the project.

So you are telling me there’s a chance!
