{field trip} Yayoi Kusama exhibit...14 Nov 2017

{field trip} Yayoi Kusama exhibit...

I first heard about Yayoi Kusama's work from a recent show she had in New York of an all white room that would change over time as each person who entered would place a colorful circular sticker wherever they wanted. "How cool is that?" I thought. Art that changes over time. Art that isn't always only created by the artist but the viewers, too. I became intrigued and needed to know more.

I learned that Kusama has played with concept of infinity over many decades and through a range of media. The traveling exhibition marks the North American debut of numerous new works by the 88-year-old artist, who is still actively creating in her Tokyo studio. When I found out that the exhibit was traveling to LA, it was a must for an Oh Joy team Field Trip to The Broad museum to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibition...

happy friday + parents magazine cover!10 Nov 2017


OMG. I am seriously in shock that I just posted that photo up there. On a recent Saturday, we spent the morning at my studio being photographed for the COVER of Parents Magazine! I was pretty much like...."Um, are you sure you are asking the right person? Did you call the right number?" I am honored to have been included and to be joined by two of my favorite people ever—my girls, Ruby and Coco—on the cover. My husband was standing just off camera beaming with pride. Here's a little peak from behind-the-scenes at our shoot for the December issue out now...


a look back at our Oh Joy for Target collections... 9 Nov 2017

Oh Joy for Target

13 years ago, I set a goal to one day have a line at Target. At the time, I was working as a designer for Cynthia Rowley's Swell line (which was one of the very first designer collections at Target) back in 2004. After seeing pieces that I had helped to design in a Target store and witnessing the joy it brought to a complete stranger, I knew I wanted to do more of that someday. A ton of time passed and blood, sweat, and tears went into starting and building my business in 2005. Fast forward to 2014 and after pitching a collection to Target the year before, here I was launching my very first Oh Joy for Target collection.

As we finish up our current and last collections at Target, I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane to see all of our collections over the past few years...
