Meet Nashville Artist, Angela Simeone

Tell us a little bit about your path to becoming an artist?

I know its cliche to say it is in my blood, but it is, as my Aunt is an artist and I have artisans that go back as far as we can trace. However, with that said, I believe everyone is a maker of some sort and a creative. I have been painting full-time for 12 years.

Where do you draw inspiration?

My inspiration is color-theory based and I love whatever the Fashion Industry is doing.  For better or worse, they always make what’s old new again.

What is your favorite piece you have painted (and why)?

My favorite piece is one I did for Mrs. Paranjape.  It’s big, and pink, and has such great movement.  It's so liberating when you have a designer that trusts you, tells you what they want, and then just lets you do what you do. 

Who is your favorite artist?

Right now I am loving Florentijn Hofman, Marco Lorenzetto, and Katherine Bernhardt.

Favorite place to hang in Nashville?

My therapist’s office. I am a homebody and we have family game night quite often.  I love to hang with my husband and three boys.  We do hikes whenever we can at the White Trail at Percy Warner Parks.

Tell us a fun fact that would surprise people about you!

When I was a girl I lived in Hawaii and England.  I worked in the music business, had my own maternity line called "Mommy Fabulous", and owned a showroom at the Americas Apparel Mart in the ATL.

What exciting projects are in your pipeline? 

I have all kinds of exciting things in the pipeline, but they are just that for now.  In the pipeline.  I can’t count my chickens before they hatch, so who knows what will actually work out.  I am painting two commissions for a celebrity that I hope to reveal in September 2018!

Mitzi Maynard's latest renovation progress

Give us some history on this home!

The house was built by Hank Williams Jr. in the 1960’s

What major changes will we see in the new layout ?

A lot!  We knocked out walls, vaulted the ceiling on the main floor, moved doors, made the original master bedroom into a master bath & closet, and we are in the process of creating an entire new master bedroom in place of where a large balcony originally existed.

What materials did you choose and why?

My client's style is crisp and clean, so we chose a lot of black and white with gold accents & finishes.

Name one challenge you experienced in this reno?

The new large open concept for the main floor. While it’s great to live in, it also presented us with the challenge of using the space wisely!

Take a peek through the before and current progress pictures below!

*p.s. Mitzi is still in need of a hashtag - any suggestions are welcome :)
