"I have always had a passion for painting and decorating," says Tracy Garcia, who decided to become a stay-at-home mom in 2001 in order to raise her two boys. To escape from the daily chaos of changing diapers and chasing her toddlers around the home, Tracy turned to her hobby -- painting. "I would paint anything I could get my hands on," says Tracy, who first painted her sons' bedrooms, then started designing canvas paintings to give as personalized presents when the boys were invited to birthday parties. Pleased at how well her paintings were received, she painted several samples and took them to a local boutique to gauge their response. To her surprise, the store bought her entire inventory on the spot, and her company, Petite Suites (petitesuites.net) was born. Today, Tracy paints wall murals for baby nurseries and custom paints wall decor for children's rooms; she even had the opportunity to paint celebrity nurseries for actresses Brooke Burke and Samantha Harris. What's next for the decor diva? "I'm in the process of designing a new line of paintings to be mass produced -- hopefully by September of next year!"
