I strongly believe that the right side of my brain is far superior to my left side. I can picture an empty room fully decorated. I can envision an old, tattered piece of furniture refinished right down to the hardware. What I struggle with is simple math. It's comical how bad I am at it. My creativity is not only my business but my personal therapy. It has helped me cope with my anxiety, type 1 diabetes, and self-consciousness. It was a love for interior decorating and a passion for all things creative that lead me to the path of refinishing furniture. What better way to marry the two forms of art than creating the furniture that makes a space sing? I try to be a voice that encourages others to find their path, their niche and style. I say be inspired, don't be an exact replica. My motto is “creative minds shouldn’t think alike”. –Alicia Marusky
