About

All Beat Up...

"I love the idea of taking a traditionally formal piece and bringing some humor to it. It is really about revitalizing these beautiful vintage plates, altering them to be a bit more fun and contemporary."

The story behind the Altered Antique Plates:
This idea started because my mom was an avid antique collector and dealer. She recently downsized and had to get rid of loads of stuff, in that "stuff" were many old plates. Some of which were old portrait plates with demure ladies posed in proper positions and big fluffy dresses. They were all beautiful with hand painted details, gold accents, wonderful porcelain but in reality they did not exactly match my modern, urban style. So, were they useless? No, I must make them cool again.... alas the idea began.
