Home Beautiful ~ April 2010!


Painting "Here I Am" featured in Home Beautiful pg 80

Here I am indeed! a painting I created a few years ago was purchased by Karen, a darling lady from Brissie. She gifted this colourful painting to her sister for her 40th birthday. I heard that she was totally delighted! and the painting headed to Sydney to its new home, where renovations where taking place. Not so long ago I received an email from Karen to say the renos where complete and that the home was going to be featured in a home magazine and as "Here I Am" was the inspiration for the colours and decorating in the main bedroom, it too was gracing the pages.

The insert above reads..
"Helen has chosen a restful taupe shade for her bedroom walls, but there is still plenty of colour in vibrant cushions, custom made in Thai silk, and a pair of quirky lamps....On the opposite wall is one of Helen's prized possessions, a painting by Nicole Hohn, commissioned for her 40th birthday"
Its a great article with many pics that truly celebrates colour.So glad you love this painting Helen, and it was honestly one of the most vibrant paintings I've ever created!
