Kerry Lehman Chope opened KLC Studio in August of this year. She specializes in personalized paintings, small works on canvas, children’s room art as well as other commissioned pieces for the entire home.

Like most mom entrepreneurs, she must make a conscious effort to balance family and business effectively. “I do most of my creative work in the morning after I get the kids on the bus,” she said, “and I try to be available and present for them when they are home in the afternoons.” On some occasions, Chope needs to get a little work done while they are home. “I will set them up with an activity they love, then sneak in a half an hour or so nearby.”

Chope is passionate about what she does and advises other moms to do the same. “We only have our one life to live, if there is something you truly enjoy doing, make the time to do it!”
