Decorative Art & Design is the third topic of this website. This topic is in the third chakra position known as the solar plexis of in the Eastern perspective

It is described by a link in Fitsri as the inspiration for self esteem and confidence.

As an added treat, the video below is from my appearance on Lifetime Television’s Our Home show. It was filmed at the Silvercup Studios in Queens NY. Step by step, I demonstrated my decorative painting technique. To be thorough, the video featured a variety of pieces I had used to develop my system as well as work I had done for clients. Suffice to say, it was a very exciting experience. Best of all, the show was broadcast nationally.
