Amy Kartheiser; the details of fine art

There is a wonderful story in the Chicago Home+Garden section of this month's Chicago magazine. The story is titled "Clean Slate: A Lincoln Park house revamped by a designer who loves starting fresh" and it features the home of designer Amy Kartheiser. The article is written by Kari Richardson, photography by Bob Coscarelli with styling by Johanna Lowe.

The article explores the details that Kartheiser integrates when composing her exquisite environments. In the case of her own Lincoln Park Queen Anne home, the artical points out custom mouldings, the specialty cabinetry and hardware, the re-working of a turn-of-the-century bathtub, and—of course—fine art.

Large works of art are used to create focal points in two areas of the main level of the home. The first—a work on paper by Francine Turk which is featured on the opening page of the story. A few pages later, one of my recent canvases appears in the home's sitting room—elegantly placed above the fireplace and flanked by custom millwork designed by Kartheisier. I'm honored to have my work in this exquisite home.

For additional information, and to read the article, pick up the December issue of Chicago magazine. I've compiled the pages below. Additional information about the work of designer Amy Kartheiser, can be found at:
