Our Story

First Time We Met

August 26, 2011

Howard and Brisa first met through a mutual friend at a party in Downtown Los Angeles. They were both seeing other people at the time. It didn't even cross their minds that their paths would soon be intertwined.

A Glowing Connection

March 3, 2012

Six months later Howard decided to reach out to Brisa over Facebook to see if she wanted to paint with glow paints. Much to his surprise, she agreed! Even though Brisa almost accidentally mistook paint thinner for a glass of gin, which would have most certainly ended the relationship early, they had a lovely time creating glowing pieces of what could questionably qualify as art.

We Fall In Love

January 18, 2014

As is evident by the photo, Howard and Brisa have been inseparable since that night of painting. They decided to make their relationship official and have been on nonstop adventures ever since.
