Porte Dauphine, my newest collection!


MiscEquestrianI’ve always loved horseback riding– since I was five years old.  Now, we are launching the newest collection entitled Port Dauphine in New York, Atlanta, Dallas, & Vegas.  Port Dauphine is the closest Metro stop to the Paris racetrack!

I’m completely head-over-heals about these new designs for #FrenchKande Spring/Summer 2015. Hope you like them!!

Here’s a photo from my newest, most inspired collection to date!  It is titled: Invalides, which is the military hospital, in Paris, that was established by Louis XIV.  It is now where Napoleon is buried and where the Military museum is housed.

Viva Las Vegas- We’re COMING!!


IMG_4963Next week I will be exhibiting at ENK Vegas, at the Mandalay Bay, Feb.18-20, Booth #32147.  I shot this last August when we arrived in the city–It’s the PARIS, not the Mandalay Bay.  HOWEVER, you know, Kande and Eiffel towers, like two peas in a pod.

I took this at the last show at the Venetian.  A repro painting of Louis XVI.

This is Me – Believe It or NOT!


DSCN3663

Yes, this is me, in my BMW motorcycle touring gear.  I ride on the back of the hubby’s motorcycle.  This hobby provides immeasurable therapy.  We don’t have a communication device to talk while riding- we are SILENT.  I love the sights, sounds and PARTICULARLY the smells of being on the road.  This is Wyoming.

I took this photo with my iPhone.  YES– NO LIE!

TOOK THIS ONE AS WELL… This is Ed Marin, my friend. See the map on his back… BMW touring gear is the best.  http://www.bmwmotorcycles.com/us/en/index.html
