A Memory Moment

So when I first saw this picture, I was immediately caught by it. The cheerful color in such an unexpected place made me happy to look at. I stowed it away in my inspiration file and then came back to it recently with a fond memory…my Dad attended art school in Portland, OR and lived...

For those that don’t know me (all of you), my name is Hilary Walker and I am a young, enthusiastic and motivated daughter of the internet age. I am currently a student in the field of interior design, teach ballroom dancing, and find myself...
