Art + Design Studio: Meet Kimberly Becoat

Art + Design Studio: Meet Kimberly Becoat
"I keep falling into these invisible women".  

We were more than happy to visit artist, Kimberly Becoat, at her studio for a two on one chat with Ishka Designs.  A very soulful individual, Kimberly's art has a tendency to tackle the female form from a unique perspective, inspired mainly by intriguing women that you may or may not have heard about.  Her paintings range from abstract to figurative to anywhere in between all infused with a strong sense of color, form and texture.

African American Top 20 List... a 3rd Time!

Happy and humbled again to be included on Pink Eggshell's African American Top 20 List of Interior Designers for the 3rd year in a row.  We are beyond appreciative to Kimberly and her team at Pink Eggshell for continuing to value the work we do at Ishka Designs, to bestow us with this honor and to include us among the many giants in this relatively small community of interior designers of color.  As the importance of the list grows within the broad landscape of the interior design industry it is only right that the celebration that accompanies this event grows in tandem.  This year's celebration will be in Atlanta and will be a 3-day event starting with the celebration party on Thursday May 8th at the newly opened Negril restaurant.  See the line up on Pink Eggshell's blog
