artist in her paint studio


Summer hand makes all the backplates and STANDOUTs from her Charlotte Studio. Elevate your interior with bespoke LUCiTE accessories.


The STANDOUT reintroduces the medallion as a curated detail that can define a space. Every piece is hand-painted in my studio in Charlotte, NC. The hand-finished detail and slight variation in finish contribute to the one-of-a-kind nature of each STANDOUT.

As a decorative artist for the past decade, creating custom paint finishes for designers and builders has become second nature. I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with many talented people. I’ve also been invited into every type of home imaginable. Through the years, one idea remains constant. The details of a home are just as important as the furniture that fills your room.

From kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities to built-ins and bars, there are so many ways to transform your
cabinetry hardware.

LUCiTE backplates are lightweight and cleanable and effortless to install. Each hand-painted backplate can be used with current or new cabinets or with furniture hardware. The LUCiTE backplates are hand painted to order. The hand-finished and slight variations in a color whisper “the artist was here”.

Transform your ordinary piece of furniture, vanity, or cabinetry into a stunning focal point. Elevate your space with bespoke accessories that make a lasting impression on anyone who enters your home.

hand painting on acrylic description


Painting on the backside of acrylic, using sheer layering techniques, I apply the paint in reverse—which is mind-bending at first. The three-dimensional result is unmatched, and the wiping ability makes for ultra-functional art. The LUCiTE shine is multidimensional and adds an exciting interest to the art.

I have created my own technique and process.  I am not aware of anyone else creating art in this way. It keeps me curious and excited to paint. I can create commissions of any size.

LUCiTE LiTTLEs are small original works of ART on Lucite. Each and every LUCiTE LiTTLEs™ is one of a kind.

custom commission info and policies


Working with interior designers and clients for over 20 years, I’ve developed a process for creating custom art that is reflective of a client’s style and needs. I begin by collecting information such as size and site specifics, medium, and color palette. Mood boards and inspirational pictures help visualize the feeling and look desired. We all translate what we see differently, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I work with you to explore and develop your ideas to create a custom piece that is a reflection of your vision. Surrounding details, such as lighting, textiles, and furniture finishes also play a role in the finished piece. The end result is a translation of your ideas, thoughts, and words into a work of art that is made specifically for your space. MEDIUMS: Canvas, Lucite, Works on Paper.
