“Throughout the years, I’ve always practiced art. I studied ceramics, sculpture, painting and photography, eventually settling on painting. I find it a forgiving medium that lends itself to wonderful displays of color. Color is where my strength as a painter shines. I’m also drawn to pattern and texture and find putting brushstrokes down on canvas to be meditative. When I paint, I’m able to be a more conscious person and to think of the needs of others.” – Kacey Stafford, Found Studio.
Do you ever wake up in the morning and dream of doing something you love? Five years after trading in a corporate suit to be stay-at-home Mom, Erica Wolfe needed a change. A self-professed beauty product junkie, over the years she became concerned with the ingredients that she was putting on her skin and into her body. With her business background and product addiction, she decided to create her own bath and body products using 100% natural ingredients. Erica’s love of using aromatherapy to relax and passion for fresh clean scents marry beautifully to create natural bath and body products that smell great, feel great and don’t cost an arm and a leg!
