I was lucky enough to spend January in Aspen painting at the acclaimed Anderson Ranch art center. Weekends I found myself popping into downtown Aspen for dinner and drinks. To my delight, I discovered the amazingly done speakeasy, Bad Harriet. Bad Harriet is a new underground speakeasy bar beneath the Hotel Jerome. The Hotel Jerome is by far my favorite hotel in Aspen as I love the décor and their unique definition of mountain style… All the western things (cowboy hats, deer heads, and lots of cowhide) meets all the chicest downtown living things (paneled...read more

For our newest Business Love blog post, we traveled no further than our own neighborhood, RiNo art district in Denver, Colorado. Located just down the block from our art gallery ATC DEN, CALL is a welcomed gem into the hood and to Denver's booming culinary scene. Located in a renovated old house, CALL is an open kitchen concept day to night coffee shop meets lunch cafe meets casual dinner bites. Complete with local beer, selected wines and cocktails on tap like their Boulevardier, their beverage program does not disappoint. I fell in love with their take on a...
So excited to share the third Among the Colors Winter SOULstice mix with you all! It's been a weird and intense year for almost everyone I know. (unless maybe you live on a deserted island) But as I looked back at this year, I realized it was actually a really great year for music. And it was a wonderful year for art as well. (and the opening of ATC DEN!)This year we did lose one of the great legends, Tom Petty. It's still hard to believe sometimes, especially since I saw him live just last year. But this year was filled with incredible music and art. Live music...
I'm so excited to share our newest Business Love feature with Downtown Denver's newest darling, Urban Farmer. Urban Farmer is centrally located in LoDo just a block from Union Station, which makes it a great meeting spot for lunch, dinner and happy hour. They even serve breakfast as well. The interior design is casual farm to table done right. Distressed wood meets rich blue and saddle leather, green walls of plants line the windows, with some windows opening up up to the sidewalk. These features are completed with compelling abstract paintings and a...
Some people say business and friends do not go together. I must say, in my two years of experience with Among the Colors, nothing is further from the truth for me. I have been honored to be able to build a female-based company alongside working with some very talented, passionate and creative women. We started out in business and we have become great friends. So, it only made since that my next edition to the bad ass babes of Among the Colors, would actually be a dear friend of mine of over ten years, Claire Tonelson. Claire is the new Director of Events for ATC...

A few weeks ago I debuted my fall and winter exhibition. It is an expansive new series entitled In the Hands of Grace. In the series, I reclaim my family name “Moretz” as my professional moniker. Both my name and my exhibition leave a symbolic mark as I seek to pay homage to my great-grandmother, Maude Elizabeth Leonard Moretz (b. 1884). My great-grandmother was a painter as well as an entrepreneur at the turn of the 20th century. She attended the Lenoir-Rhyne University and earned a degree in the arts in 1910, a very rare accomplishment for a woman of her time....read more
December is just around the corner! I love being able to catch up with friends and be sparkly and festive together. My calendar is quickly filling up with holiday events and parties so that means it's time to start planning outfits. I don't like to spend a lot of time shopping for each event so I like to find items that I can style and wear to different types of occasions all season long and a pair of velvet leggings are perfect! They are versatile, festive and most importantly, comfortable. It gets very chilly in Denver so holiday dresses aren't always the most...read more
Just like that, the holiday craziness is in full swing. I am headed to the airport today, I'm sure like many of you. This year we are spending Thanksgiving in Hawaii so instead of preparing the turkey, I'll be sipping cocktails on the beach. But before we set off, I like to do a little preparation to get my immune system ready to take on all of those airplane germs. I have a few immune boosting hacks for holiday travel so being sick won't get in the way of your plans. Hand Sanitizer: This is Birdie and he might just be my new best friend.
