As designer and project manager through my business, jofa12, days are spent with contractors and clients in various stages of renovation. Planning. Shopping. Managing. Smiling. Frowning. It all happens. I have opportunity to work hands on with terrific contractors every day on the structural side of the renovation. Demolition. Framing. Tiling. Smiling. Frowning. It all happens. When possible, I hide away in my jofa shop to paint canvases that I sell in local and online stores. Most of the paintings are inspired by illustrations to the children’s stories I write. …So basically, I get to do a lot of stuff that I love.
