I've spent the last 2.5 years of the pandemic studying and honing my design skills, among other things. It's been a ton of work, but I'm thrilled to announce that I’ve expanded my offerings to include design, décor and consulting services, and my new company, Ive & Co. Artistic Interiors, is ready to launch!
The idea behind Ive & Co. is to bring forward the knowledge, connections and experience gained in the artworld and merge them into this new venture of Art & Design. To create sophisticated interiors and connect fellow artists with those spaces we help dream up. While the focus may have shifted slightly from only a product to a service, my mission remains the same; a strong desire to bring more beauty into this world and into people's homes and work spaces.
To ensure the professionalism and success of the company, I am bringing onboard an accomplished architect and my husband's network of trusted contractors and tradesmen. He is an electrical contractor with over 20 years’ experience in residential and commercial construction.
Ive & Co. is now booking projects for May of 2022 and beyond. If you or someone you know, may it be a friend, realtor or builder, are in need of interior design services, I would love it if you share this information with them and help me spread the word. We offer both local and virtual services.
What about Ivette Fine Art?
I am first and foremost an artist, and just because I’ve expanded the size of my canvas to include the entire room, it doesn’t mean I’m abandoning my own paintings. I don’t have a lot of available inventory, but have been working on private commissions over the last couple of years and always open to take on more. Email me if interested and don’t forget you are always welcome to visit me in my studio as well. I will also be doing a few art shows around Montana this summer.
That’s all for now, hope to catch up with you soon!
It was a long winter but it didn't last forever (although it seemed like it would at times) and spring is finally here! Yay :)
Also, Stewart Title of Missoula, which is co-sponsoring the event, has purchased a couple of my framed encaustic monotypes and they will be giving them away at the end of the evening, and last but not least, I am offering a first Friday special for my mailing list subscribers of 10% off any original painting, so if you've had your eye on a certain piece tomorrow is your chance!
Hope to see you tomorrow, Ivette
“Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere; and sometimes, in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself.” I read this sentence somewhere this morning and it resonated with me to my very core. May we find ourselves in very beautiful places and may we always have infinite reasons to be thankful for. 🙏✨🌈
Here’s to family, friends, health, love, art and pets 😁 and to everything else we are grateful for. I'll keep it short and sweet and say Thank You for supporting me and in that, allowing me to do what I love. Happy Thanksgiving everybody 🦃🍁 🌼
