I'm excited to announce some new press through SHOUTOUT LA!
The publication reached out about a month ago after they finished an interview with the artist Christina Twomey (also my wife).
I'm honored to be featured among many other talented artists and creators.

SO: Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
BM: I’d like to dedicate my “Shout-Out” to my wife (and talented artist) Christina Twomey. If she has not wandered into a Joann Fabrics one day to get a canvas and try painting, I would not be a furniture maker today. I have been with her for her entire journey with art as her husband and her biggest fan. That led to me helping her, and then working with her, learning from her, and ultimately getting my first client from her. I am eternally grateful to Christina and luckily, I get to thank her every day!
About SHOUTOUT LA
Every day we ask our contributors and interviewees questions designed to spark meaningful conversations. We ask questions about life, work, love, parenting, finances, and more. Questions like how you think about risk-taking, work-life balance, or online dating. We ask entrepreneurs why they started their business and we ask artists what their work is inspired by.
We think meaningful conversations are at the heart of community building. We also think every voice matters and that these conversations shouldn’t be led by billionaires, media elites, or celebrities. We feel it’s far more relevant to hear from the folks who make up the fabric of our communities – small business owners, mom-and-pops, and independent artists and creatives.
Shoutout LA is part of the Los Angeles based Voyage Group of Magazines and our flagship publication, VoyageLA was started in 2015. Since then we’ve grown to almost a dozen cities, generated millions of page views and helped tens of thousands of entrepreneurs and creatives share their stories. Along the way we’ve built a vibrant and highly engaged community and Shoutout is about giving that community an opportunity to go beyond stories. By focusing on topics that are relevant to almost everyone we hope to inspire important conversations within the community and do so in way that puts artists, creatives and local businesses at the center of these conversations.
MARSDEN DESIGNS and CHRISTINA TWOMEY ART will be featured on DESTINATION TV - a new TV show highlighting "best businesses" in Southern California during Season 1
Christina and I are thrilled to announce we were approved to be cast in a new show premiering this fall, "Destination TV" which highlights a select group of the 'best businesses' in Southern California, focusing on home, food and lifestyle. They've approved us for a 3-minute segment featuring our art, furniture, and home décor enterprise.
The show will air in Los Angeles on CBS (KCBS) - Channel 2, nationally on Amazon Prime, Pluto TV, YouTube, Vizio, and IGTV through their influencer partners reaching over 20 million followers.
We couldn't be more excited about this opportunity and are so grateful to their talent + casting team for selecting us for the show!
