We're excited to have Art From Architecture joining us at the Holiday Boutique. Local artist Bernadette "Bernie" Lee started this business in 2015 after almost thirty years as a fine wine professional. A shoulder injury left her unable to lift crates of wine, but she could still wield a pen and paintbrush. Her previous hobby of painting landscapes and drawing custom home portraits has evolved into a passion for creating lasting memories of places that people hold close to their heart.

Visit Bernie and the Art From Architecture team at the Holiday Boutique in Booth 14 to discover beautiful pieces you can surprise your loved ones with this holiday season. But first, get to know this KC artist and her business a little better by reading our brief interview below.
