We Have A Mom Crush On Brandy Adams

By Joslyn Taylor |


Brandy’s favorites: 1. Betsy Johnson dress 2. Crystal from Wright’s Rock Shop 3. Organo coffee 4. Zola Jesus 5. TUMI backpack


Who she is: Brandy Adams, founder of WAAS Gallery, self-taught painter, professionally trained dancer, professional makeup artist and hair stylist (collaborating with renowned artists such as David LaChapelle, Thomas Heisner, and Craig DeCristo), and mom of Oliver.

Why we love her: Did we mention gallery owner/painter/dancer/makeup artist/hair stylist/mom?  Oh and there’s also the fact that the creative dynamo is committed to the idea that art truly has the power to change and enrich lives. Inspiring indeed!

Herewith a peek into Brandy’s world.


On heavy rotation: Zola Jesus, Sbtrkt, Kid Cudi, Grimes, alt-J

What she’s reading: Captivating by John and Stasi Eldeeradge and Archetypes in Branding: A Toolkit for Creatives and Strategists by Margaret Pott Hartwell and Joshua C Chen

Always in her handbag: I don’t really carry a handbag, rather I tote my trusty  TUMI backpack. Inside I keep my credit cards, business cards, lip gloss, crystals of all kinds, Organo Coffee, pens, and a notebook.

Her uniform: My Betsy Johnson dresses.

Her go-to restaurants: For family dinner it’s Toshio’s, and for an adult night, I love The Gin Mill.

Favorite family outing in Dallas: Definitely the  Dallas Aquarium.

Three things inspiring her of late: My son Oliver, RAW Dallas, and my new blog with Yoga4Love, Art Saves Lives.
