Sneak Peek: Vicky's Work

Paintings and renderings of interiors have been a reoccurring topic of interest on this blog. I've shared the work of Tommi Parzinger and Mark Hampton, as well as works owned by Charlotte Moss, who has an amazing collection. And of course, I've mentioned my friends, artists Anne Harwell and Patricia van Essche. So, I had to pause for a moment today and leave you with a little eye candy from Victoria Molinelli.

Vicky has illustrated Ruthie Sommers' stories for domino, and she studied furniture design in college. I'll be back soon with details. In the meantime, enjoy!

Vicky does exteriors too.



For now contact Vicky at vickymolinelli@yahoo.com or (323) 301-2806.

I wish I could do watercolours. I am so envious of those who can!

Style Court said...

Meg, I feel the same way. I felt quite frustrated after my first rendering class!

Stacy McCallum said...

these are fantastic. I have always liked the interiors so much! It would be amazing to have one of these done for yourself.

renderings are such a reminder of a slower paced way of life....years ago I was fortunate to have served as a docent for an Elsie de Wolfe exhibition and the paintings were exquisite.

Style Court said...

Oh Mary, I envy you! I would have been in heaven if that exhibition had come to the High during my time there. Thanks for sharing

Oh, Courtney, how very grateful I am to have found your blog this year. No matter what I face on a rough and tumble workday, I can look forward to taking a break to read a new posting from you, knowing that it will feed my soul. While I don't illustrate completed exteriors and interiors, I always sketch my visions of a completed project for my clients. There is something about putting pencil to paper that connects one to a space in a way that software just cannot promise. Still, I need inspiration which I might find in a hotel, a bistro or in a flower. Certainly, you have inspired me today, as you have in so many days passed, and I thank you for that. How nice it is to rest my eyes on such lovely renderings. One of my own personal favorite design books was recently recently released by the New York School of Interior Design, which is "Albert Hadley--Dranwings and the Design Process." Today my work was all nuts and bolts, and dealing with contractors, but you reminded me of why I love what I do: seeing the dream realized! Thank you!

Michael -- I appreciate the comment!

Vicky deserves the credit though :) Anyway, inspiration is a huge part of the mission of the blog, so I feel as if I've put in a good day's work. Thanks for the Hadley book reminder too.
