Hi! Welcome to the Cozy Loft! I’m Rhonda James, Artist and Owner of an art studio called The Cozy Loft . I’m so glad you’re here!
The Cozy Loft is the name of my little cottage industry that I created for my art studio way back in 2008. This blog has become a place where I share much more than my art. You’ll also find lots of personal experiences including home DIY, craft projects, favorites, and more. So, thank you for being part of this community because you the kindest and most fascinating people I’ve ever known.
How I Found My Artistic Passion
When I was a little girl, I had Grandparents who owned a gift shop, a mother who owned a bakery and an aunt and uncle who owned a wood crafting business. At an early age (around 10-11 years old), Mama set up some art classes for us, along with my Grandmother, at a craft shop called Grace’s Cellar. In that little building, I was told by an art instructor named Mrs. Barbara Pusser that I had talent with painting. It was there that the seed took root and there was no turning back.
Through the Years
In particular, I have been painting ornaments for more than 25 years, including for Liz Claiborne/Macy’s promotions, professional athletes and major brands. My creations are in homes all over the world. It is my true joy and passion and I hope that it shows in my creations. If you have something special in mind and you don’t see it in my shop, please don’t hesitate to ask. I’m happy to work with you to create the perfect keepsake.
Where I Am Now
Passion, faith and love are 100% what has led me to where I am today. I’ve been blessed with WONDERFUL support and encouragement in various places in the wonderful USA and beyond with friends, family and even strangers..who are never strangers for long.
