Consigner Feature: True Red Betty

Don't miss out on the True Red Betty pop-up shop in our garden! Kim Rutledge and her hand painted creations will be here at the store Saturday, July 30th from 11am to 4pm.

How did you get started?

After 20+ years of corporate business I broke free from being an artist trapped in a business suit.  I was driven to make a change and decided the time was NOW and the first painting was created: simply the word NOW in sunshine yellow on a cheery red background.  One step led to the next and I decided now was the season to start following my passion and create messages to inspire and motivate.  

Why do you do what you do?

I've always enjoyed creating, whether it is art or craft, but I especially love painting.  true RED betty is a manifestation of my personality combined with my background in life coaching and creativity.  Everyone wants to make a difference.  true RED betty is my little way of trying to change the world- painting positive, happy, joy- one painting at a time. 

What do you like about consigning with Grandiflora?

Between the combination of a warm, beautiful aesthetic and the awesome team making it all happen, I'm honored to have my paintings available at Grandiflora.  Walking into Grandiflora brings a feeling of "ahh"... home and refreshing, unique décor that appeals to the senses.   Grandiflora offers all the elements to make a house feel like a home which I value as my sanctuary and place to relax, rejuvenate and refresh.

We encourage you to come to the store this Saturday, July 30th from 11am to 4pm to see True Red Betty here at the store! See you soon!
