“Heartly” by Elizabeth Traub

“Heartly is Art You Love by Elizabeth Traub.

Her name was Mrs. Olcott. She was the, “old lady” next door. Then one day she told me her named changed to Mrs. Heartly. I was about 8 years old and wondered how a person could change their name. She shared her things. She shared her gardening tools, she shared her cherries from her cherry tree. She gave me my first taste of the best tuna salad I had ever eaten. (To this day a tuna salad is my favorite). I learned in Sunday school that God wants us to have a heart that loves people. I remember thinking that is why she changed her name. When I asked her, she explained that the new man was her new husband and she took his name. In my mind she is etched as the old lady next door with a big heart. I dedicate this piece to Mrs. Heartly. I am certain we will meet in Heaven. Her love and kindness to a scrappy little girl next door earned her a place next to God.

Interior Designer, Consultant, Artist. Which is it they ask? All of the above. God has blessed me in ways that words cannot describe. Doing what I love and making a career out of it all. Starting with a beautiful designer showroom. Decorating homes and specializing in kid's spaces. Magazine covers and spreads, then show homes. Adding in business consulting. Working alongside my clients to develop a strategic plan to design and market their product or service in the correct markets. Then one day, after years of painting for my clients, a few gallies, my hobby business I decided in the second half of my life to bring Elizabeth Harris Art Gallery to life. I took my paintings to the streets and flipped my website into my "Art You Love" business. Do what you love and love what you do.
