Lapis and Lime Studio | Beth Carlisle | Williamstown, MA 1) The first thing I remember making is…..you mean in life? Wow, that was a while ago…probably painting a little tiny china cup and saucer with my grandfather when I was about five. It had little forget me knots on it…quite sweet. He painted china and gave lessons to little old ladies. He always had classical music in the background and I watched him paint for hours–china or canvas…he was a dear person.
2) I knew then, that…..I was going to be like my grandfather-an artist of some stripe
3) Today’s passion is.....simply finding the most lovely beads and assembling them in a simple way that emphasizes and celebrates the color and beauty of the beads. As a graphic designer, I enjoy all types of design and especially marvel at color and how context for every element is so important. Beads are a delightful, stress free and happy obsession.
4) In my music player you will find….I mostly listen to NPR but otherwise Bob Dylan, Grateful Dead, Joni and all the rest from my generation.
5) Chocolate Cake. Pro or Con? I really like a flourless chocolate cake if I am going to eat chocolate cake, which is rare. But as far as chocolate, I'm most happy with two Lindt x dark truffles and cup of Roma with milk.
