Richard Von Saal - Designer in Residence

Richard Von Saal - Designer in Residence

Mid century modern infused with traditional glamour and elegance is the essence of Vonsaal installations.

This provoking visual stimulation evoked the eye that Richard began to view the world. Raised a native Napa, Californian and part pacific northwester, this diversified entrepreneur indulged in creating businesses all relating to enhancing space and humanity. The thought provoking cultivation and success of these directions lead to the development of Vonsaal design build. Over the last decade, Richard has specialized in commercial and residential design build for some of northern California's most renowned clientele.

The dynamic of Vonsaal design build is a cultivation of Richard’s conceptual designs paired with a fully equipped fabrication studio. This combination of front office theory with back house manufacturing leaves Vonsaal absolute creative license to enhance and diversify properties, making Richard Von Saal, truly, an artisan of space.
 
Mikey Kelly - Artist in Residence

Mikey Kelly - Artist in Residence

Mikey Kelly’s work plays with the concept of repetition and the variation derived from the work being handmade.
The importance of the artist’s hand in the work is vital to its soul. This allows there to be a dialog between the artist and the material and allows for a direct influence on one another. Each piece starts with a framework of how it is going to be constructed, but through the process the piece evolves and changes. The repetitious elements build familiarity in process but also allows for the smallest variation in detail to magnify. Through a scientific and mathematical framework and simple repetition the line transforms becoming a fabric, a network, and ultimately a construction.

 
Penelope Moore - Creative Director

Penelope Moore - Creative Director

Penelope's paintings and photography are a reflection of her passion for food, wine and joie de vivre. They are contemporary in style with an emphasis on color, mood and light. A gourmet at heart, Penelope is immersed in an epicurean culture and influenced by her connectedness to the world of wine. Penelope's culinary compositions offer intimate insight into a food and wine lifestyle.

Her inspiration begins in social scenes such as restaurants, wine bars, wineries, wine cellars and often simply in the kitchen and around dinner tables with wine, food and friends. Through the use of rich color, dynamic perspective, inviting atmosphere and gourmet subject matter, Penelope's work conveys the essence of a bon vivant lifestyle. Once her inspiration is transformed into colorful still life paintings and photographs her work expresses gratitude, optimism and joy of life.

Penelope earned her BFA in Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. She resides in Napa Valley
