I was delighted to receive a commission from my mother and creative colaborator Linda Meeks. She is co-hosting the 2012 Slipcover Summit in June at the Hickory Furniture Mart and wanted an artwork inspired by her parsons chair slipcover (which placed second in a nationwide contest sponsored by the Slipcover Network!) to accompany her display. I had so much fun incorporating the fabric and austrian crystals from the actual slipcover. Generally commissioned works prove difficult to mediate between personal style and the desires of the client, but having lived with her for my first 18 years made this one easy!
