5280 Magazine’s Top of the Town

Posted in press with tags , , , , on July 1, 2010 by andrealidesigns

As the confluence of fate and hard work would have it my first mentionable accolade can be recently found within the pages of the latest 5280 magazine’s Top of the town July issue. This recognition is a reflection of many years of hard work during which there was very little quantifiable progress as compared to effort. A validating shift indeed as I continue my journey to achieving my dreams.

I am energized by the current momentum and have many people to thank who have always believed in my artistic intent. I am supported by a wonderful community whose encouragement has had an unprecedented impact on me as an individual and as an artist.

It can be said that luck is qualified by the outcome of when preparation meets opportunity. If this is the case then expect that I will be holding my work ethic to an even stricter standard to rewrite my current par of expectations. Thank you to all the editors of 5280 magazine for helping to keep the dream alive and allowing me to share my passion with the great city of Denver.
