Richmond native Lindsay Cowles never imagined she could make a living from her abstract art.
Cowles was working in the Los Angeles fashion industry when she discovered that her artistic inclination might hold commercial appeal. She sold a commissioned piece for the Beverly Hills home of Tony Broccoli, son of James Bond movie producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli.
Cowles returned home a year ago to open a studio in Plant Zero. In October, her raw, honest and bold art was tapped for an emerging designers sale and subsequent events on One Kings Lane, a curated internet home and lifestyle site.
In addition to commissioned work nationwide, she's developing fabrics and removable wallpaper. She also has lines of notecards and prints.
"It takes hard work and determination, but it can be done," Cowles says.
