richmond home magazine: hot list

I'm so excited and honored to be a part of the 10 amazing innovators in R Home Magazine's 2013 hot list!  If you are in Richmond, you can pick up a copy at Barnes & Noble and/or Martins!

Unexpected Abstractions
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 through Spoonflower, a North Carolina company.  She also has lines of notecards and prints.
"It takes hard work and determination, but it can be done," Cowles says.
