Winter Windows with Artist Kevin Paulsen

With the holiday’s upon us – we set out create the next winter window display at FINCH life curated in Hudson.  A wonderful and unexpected meeting in late fall with renowned muralist Kevin Paulsen resulted in a  collaboration of design for the window backdrop – a bold and timeless stencil – with the amazing help of local artist, graphics and textile designer Amelia Leon.

The initial process started with an amazing visit to Kevin’s studio in Kingston NY to see his work in progress.

Next step is a collaboration to identify color and theme from Kevin’s stencil design for the FINCH windows – selecting an exaggerated “jax” that also reads like a stylized ornament – on a vertical ombre stripe.

…and then the install begins with a hand-rolled and brushed background by Kevin and Amelia in FINCH’s signature charcoal and white:
