At this point, you're probably pretty familiar with the excitement that we feel when a new piece of canvas art walks through our doors. There is just something about a good painting that arouses so many emotions. Through color, texture and mood we are instantly transported into another time with the ability to channel emotions and create a story all our own. It should come as no surprise then, that we could hardly contain the excitement we felt when we were graced with the presence of our newest artist, Melissa Payne Baker, and her collection of truly unique artistic work. When she came referred by our dear friend, Emily Ozier, we were certain that her work would be impressive!

An Atlanta native, Melissa was born into a family of artists, and often claims that she has paint, not blood, running through her veins. After obtaining a marketing degree from the University of Mississippi, Melissa decided to follow her dreams and passion for color, interior design and art. With a flair for creating canvas art with fantastic color schemes, texture and style, Melissa bases each piece of of the emotion of real-life experiences, enabling her to truly connect with every piece that she creates. Her works are one part abstract, one part nature, bringing life and energy to the space in which they are displayed.

At Bella Vita, we are so fortunate to be graced with the beauty of one-of-a-kind, uniquely crafted pieces of art. You see, art is a powerful thing- it has the ability to tell a story, evoke emotion and create a special sense of character through something as simple as color, texture and design. Art also takes a number of forms, from canvas masterpieces to bejeweled trinkets made to add extra sass to your everyday ensemble. Because we get to enjoy this kind of beauty on a daily basis, wouldn't it only seem right to share it with you, our loyal friends and fans, in the most wonderful way? 

Paris trunk show

This weekend, we'll host a fabulous spring trunk show featuring two of our most adventurous and innovative artists- Emily Ozier and Vintage Gypsy- and the newest pieces of their beloved collections. Our friend Paige from Vintage Gypsy will be here on Friday, March 1st and Saturday, March 2nd to showcase her latest line of fashion forward, Parisian-inspired jewelry, all inspired by beads, brooches and baubles that she's picked up on her travels around the nation and the world. Each piece packs just enough vintage-inspired beauty to give it character, while also keep you in the running for fashion's hottest accessory trends with each lovely detail.

Speaking of adventure, we are thrilled to also have the incredible Emily Ozier (EMYO) in store on Saturday, March 2nd to showcase her most recent works of art. EMYO will debut her brand new Paris Series, featuring works inspired by vintage photos that she collected while on an anniversary trip to Paris. There's no doubt in our mind that we'll be floored with the beauty of each canvas creation that she'll feature, and we are on the edge of our seat in anticipation to see what she's come up with. 

Don't miss out on the fun and adventure this weekend. After all, if we can't travel the world, can't we at least live vicariously through the artwork of those who do?  Plus, we could all use a mini-transport to a place as gorgeous as Paris from time to time, don't you think?

See you this weekend!
