Vintage Vibes

It is always an honor when a fellow artist chooses my work for their home! Minneapolis painter Sarah Johannsen and I did a partial trade in which she painted a portrait of me and my husband, Darrell, and I made tiles to go behind the range in her kitchen.

She selected multiples of the quatrefoil four tile set in honey glaze to harmonize with her sweet vintage home. I love how the tiles look with that retro, yellow floral curtain! quatrefoil handmade tiles installed behind a stove in a kitchenSarah installed the tiles herself and said it turned out exactly how she pictured it beforehand, which is a good thing.

And of course, I have to share the lovely painting she did of Darrell and me!

Thank you, Sarah! Really pleased with how both the painting and the tiles turned out. I don't think Sarah has a website, but you can see more of her work on instagram where her handle is @starhesed
