Interiors…Portraits & Painting

There is an incredibly talented artist and up & coming interior designer in Brooklyn named Foster Cranz.  Such a great name for someone who will no doubt one day be famous, and she’s also my cousin.

She randomly posts pics of some of her pieces on Facebook, Instagram, etc, so when she recently posted a self portrait, I knew I needed one too.  I think we need to start trading jewels for art, which is an arrangement I will be very happy with.


When I finally graduated college and became aware that my home should start reflecting that of an adult, I took 5 or 6 pieces she painted and, to this day, still have them up.

I also had her create this last piece so I can showcase jewelry for advertising for upcoming shows.  It came out amazing.

I am going to hang them in our half bathroom but have been wanting to paint or wall paper the room for some time now.  I shelved my wall paper idea after realizing the custom paper I wanted would be around $3,000 and that I don’t know how to wall paper.  My logic was, since I’m very good at wrapping presents, how hard could it be.  I read a couple articles, apparently it’s significantly harder.

So now that I have established where I’m going to hang them, I just need to paint the room first.

Who new buying art would be so labor intensive…
