Patrice Brunet was born in 1963 in Normandy, France. He discovered the joy of painting when he was given a painting set on his eighth birthday. It was love at first sight!
   Patrice worked as a guide on a Seine riverboat before his stint in the army. Afterwards he worked as an antiques dealer, traveling throughout Europe buying art and antiques. During this time, he continued to paint with passion and studied under Belgium artists.
In 1990, Patrice opened an antiques and art store at the Paris flea market and in 1995 an antiques and art gallery in Paris. He visited the United States on business for the first time in 1996 and moved to Pensacola, Florida, in 2001 working as an antiques and art dealer, and to Birmingham, Alabama in 2003, where he lives today. He became a full time artist in 2006, and became a listed artist in 2007
Patrice also paints beautiful portraits of your beloved pets!

Donna Liberatore’s love for the outdoors greatly influences each piece that she gravitates to and further inspires her love for earthy colors, unusual lines, pieces with texture and architectural elements. Her shop is filled with unusual furniture, farm like objects, and anything related to gardening.
Donna grew up in Connecticut where she loves the beautiful landscapes and rich history. She enjoys gardening, hiking and spending time with friends and family, and is especially appreciative of the
support of her husband and two sons.

Everyone is more aware of the environment than ever before. In the last few years, many new words have been introduced into the English language that refer to the process of reusing existing materials rather than simply cutting more trees or sending more to the landfill. Lakewood 400 Dealers have long been known for being uniquely creative and on the cutting edge when it comes to design ideas and what’s going on in the world. That’s why you will find items throughout the show that have been repurposed … brought from outdated to highly sought after, and made useful in todays homes and businesses.
100_5470One Dealer who takes this to the highest level is John Collier of Collier Custom Designs, who comes to Lakewood from Altona, PA. John deals in architectural salvage, the real deal, and actually goes into incredible historic buildings that are being demolished, mostly up north, and removes anything that can be reused. He then turns tin ceiling panels into frames for mirrors, signs, art panels and more. He builds tables of every size out of banister parts and old flooring, as well as massive counters, bars and shelving units and wall shelves. John is well known in the US and can locate items you are seeking. He welcomes custom orders.

ANNE HATHAWAY DESIGNS ~ HALL C 132-133 January 11, 2014

Most people know Anne Hathaway as an incredible artist who had a well known shop on Bennett Street in downtown Atlanta, and specialized in her prints, original artwork and pottery. Anne was a Lakewood 400 dealer for two years when it opened, but left to handle the busy traffic at her shop. With the shop now closed, she is back at Lakewood 400!
   Meanwhile, Anne’s husband, Eric Lee, sold his restaurant to become a stay-at-home Dad. Children grown, Eric then became the craftsman at Anne Hathaway Designs who builds wonderful furniture from reclaimed wood including Farm Tables. They provide the history of the wood with each piece, such as wood from an old three story plantation house built in Jackson, GA, in 1833. They have been working on for awhile that wood for quite a while.
    Anne is a self-taught artist, inspired by famed artist Georgia O-Keefe, and known first by her botanical watercolors and then for her colorful depictions of animals, fish and birds. Her artwork has been described as sophisticated whimsy and has been depicted on original watercolors, prints and dinnerware. Her artwork has universal appeal and inspires smiles around the world. Indeed, her art is featured in such places as the London wine merchant, Justerini and Brooks LTD, and on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Ships.
Eric’s hobby is tracing the genealogical history of his family which goes back to 320 AD. Anne’s family came over on the Mayflower.
You will enjoy checking out these beautiful works of art and talking with Anne and Eric.
