Barbara Kendall Reed


Hello, I’m Barbara Kendall Reed, the creator of this website/blog and President of an art and design company called Visual Images Design Studio, LLC.

I decided to name this website the name of my pending book Life Iz Colorful.  My experience, both in business and in my personal life, has been very colorful!


At Visual Images Design Studio, LLC we:

• Sell original works of art

• Provide interior decorating services

• Create multi-media art projects

• Author lyrics and songs

• Write reflective poetry

The company is always engaged in multiple projects that often times involve other creative individuals as well as the individual(s) who secure the above services.   For that reason I have listed current projects and the status of these projects on the Home Page so you can follow their progress.  For additional information on specific areas of service or projects please refer to the individual tabs.

A separate tab is designated for blogging only so join the fun.

Please subscribe to our website before you leave this page so we can keep in touch.

We have made amazing progress towards our launch of the book.  It looks like it will definitely be by the end of May.  They say the “devil is in the details” but I’m claiming God’s presence in the details because that is what I’m doing.

It’s an exciting process and I know you will enjoy the final product.  Will do a better job with keeping you informed.

Signing Off,



A quick up date on the book.   The book Life Iz Colorful is now complete as of January 1, 2011. We are officially copyrighted with our IBSN.  The next phase is fund raising for publication.

This is getting exciting and yet surreal.  It’s been four years in the making and the process has been amazing.

Signing off!
