a really good friend of mine, rosalia weiner owner of home art designs, has told me several times that i don’t just design, i make magic. ( if she says it again, i’m going to start believing her.)
artist, muralist and color expert rosalia weiner. charlotte, nc
well she is the magician. everything she touches is in living color and filled with love and a passion for art. she is primarily self taught – art is in her blood. when we work together on projects, i’m always confident that my clients will love, love, love the end result. i never worry.
this is a project rosalia and i collaborated on for a client. the owners are big jazz fans
whenever i visit the weiner family, i feel like i’m in a place with no worries, a non stop party just celebrating life. her color selection for her home is so exciting and energetic. everything works wonderfully well together. her native country is mexico and this is her way of bringing a little bit of mexico to charlotte. recently, i grabbed my camera and told her i’m coming over to take pictures because knowing her, she could change every wall within a weeks time. she graciously agreed and i’m excited to share them with you.
the close up of her foyer entrance details the beauty of the colors. i've known rosalia and her family for at least 6 years now and the foyer has been recreated around three times, maybe four. i love it each and every time.
without a doubt a dining room filled with love.

view her dining room wall before this latest up date. it reminded me of spring. check out additional images of dining room walls she has completed for her clients.
who would have thought to paint the kitchen area pink? rosalia! and i love it! this space too has been many other designs and she's telling me she may repaint it again. i'm tempted to throw myself in front of it and camp out if she tries too
she stores her treasures, created and found, in her think tank
a mix of goodies to inspire her
there's something calming about an artist studio. rosalia cleaned it up for the photos and i was so disappointed because i wanted to capture the process of how ideas go from imagination to canvas. oh well, i'll have to catch her in action another day when it's a beautiful mess!

not only does this area serve as a studio for rosalia but also as an office for her and her husband. personal completed projects, family photos and resource books find a home here.
currently, this wall serves as a place to view completed work, or work in progress
very effective use of color saturation. painting was done on a canvas approximately 18"x 24"
often she creates a piece in what seems like a matter of minutes. children's art is especially fun because you can let your imagination run wild
