All the time we get the question, "You're traveling AGAIN?" Yes, the team at Elizabeth Sarah Collections travels quite often for work, and we enjoy it just as much as traveling for pleasure, and that's because we LOVE what we do! Elizabeth and her husband Philip have friends all over the United States and, so they travel often, as there are always new opportunities for art shows. One of our favorite places to travel to, whether its for work or play, is California.
Philip was granted an amazing artistic opportunity a few years back in California with the company Vestal, which puts on a totally rad private festival, called Vestal Village, every year around the same time as Coachella. Philip's designs are fun and whimsical; his journey through art is a discovery of color and of texture. They each are their own adventure, every original painting is a piece of Philip's imagination.
Philip's talent caught the eye of many, and he is now the Head Art Director for Vestal Village. It was no surprise that he and Elizabeth were invited back this June for the 10th Anniversary of Vestal Village in Bolsa Chica, and Philip knew exactly what he was going to paint. His famous life-size Breaching Whale painting became the main act at Vestal Village this year. (check out more of his art at philipbennettwalker.com or on insta @philipbennettwalker)
While in Vestal Village, Elizabeth met up with friend and owner of Strata Clothing, Jason Rodriguez, who is also from North Florida. Jason happened to be in California for a photo shoot for his women's clothing line, and thought a few signature Elizabeth Sarah Collections pieces would be the perfect accessory for his model (you can check this babe out on insta- @mattahparker. photographer - @jhay_dntplay. clothing line - @strata). Being the boss babe that she is, Elizabeth always has a collection of jewelry on her for a spontaneous opportunity like this, and we couldn't be happier to be affiliated with another local Florida brand.
It's connections like these - collaborations, supporting other artists, encouraging one another's work and taking it all in - that make the world go round. We are forever thankful for our California family and for the opportunities that have paved the way for the success of the Elizabeth Sarah Collections team.
