When I started painting mixers, I had no ideas from anyone else or anywhere else. I painted mine for fun after receiving it as a gift from my mom. Then I painted my friend Sherri’s, then my friend Mikayla’s, my moms and so on. It snowballed. I made a website because I did a guitar case for Gavin Rossdale and thought I should look more “professional”. It was then I realized how many mixers I did for fun without a “business” and decided to ask my dad for a loan to start a business of painting them. Un Amore was born in 2008. I sold them all in 3 months and was able to pay my dad back. The rest is history…
I am the original who made it my profession. I am not claiming to be the “first” to paint a mixer, but I AM the one who made it popular…I am the one who had the vision and believed in it. I am a small business and I BUILT THIS.
So if there is any question about where this originated, how it started, I have your story. Below I have included just a few links of where my work has been featured.
Love to you all for your continued support, because without it, I certainly would be here today.
*No negative comments please on my page. I like to keep it passionate and friendly.
much love, Nicole

And there’s more…I haven’t even begun to list the celebrities who own my work…but this gives you the idea. Know the facts. And I will conclude this with this quote… “Do not make presumptions, you learn nothing about anything, unless you let the truth unfold before your eyes.”
