Question: How long have you been an AR Workshop Owner?

Answer: Almost 2 years.

Question: What made you decide to become an AR Workshop owner?

Answer: Being a customer first was a huge advantage for me. I had already fallen in love with the concept so purchasing the business was a no brainer for me. I love being creative, seeing the joy that DIYing brings to our customers and chatting with people in our community.

Question: What is your favorite AR Workshop project or design?

Answer: This is a tough one! As a customer I loved making my first project, which was an 18″ Lazy Susan with the Modern Dot Monogram design. It has been on our kitchen table since the day I made it in November of 2018. As an owner, I love the Tampa Skyline because it is unique to our city. My most recent favrotie is the Framed Abstract Hearts. I painted it with different shades of blues and metallics and personalized it with “love you more”. I gave it to my family for Valentine’s Day because it is something I always say to them.

Question: What is your favorite AR Workshop paint color?

Answer: I am all about the blues. They are so calming and tranquil to me.

Question: Please share anything you do or have done in the community that would make your mama proud.

Answer: My oldest son and I are members of the Young Mens Service League. Being members of this organization gives us the opportunity to volunteer together for different organizations in our community. Some of the organizations include the Special Olympics and the YMCA. I not only love that we get to make a difference in our community, but also love that we get to do these things together. I am also a member of the PTA Executive Board at Mabry Elementary and have been a  member for 7 years. Throughout my time on the board I have assisted the school with fundraising, volunteering, and ensuring that our children are in a safe place where they are able to learn and grow socially, academically, and emotionally. Since taking over AR I have provided several schools, churches, and organizations with donations. One of my favorite opportunities was working with the homeless teens and their mentors from the Tampa Bay area. It was extremely rewarding to see the joy it brought their faces and made me proud to be serving such a spectacular community.
