Meet Jillian Darlington, Creator of the MomCo App

Meet Jillian Darlington, Creator of the MomCo App

Today I am speaking with Jillian Darlington creator and founder of the MomCo App. She is a single mom, former small business owner and entrepreneur here in San Diego.

Being a full time mom to my son and getting to spending time with my friends and their children was something that meant so much to me and made me so happy, I was unwilling to give it up for a 9 to 5 job. Fate intervened at that time when a girlfriend told me that my favorite indoor playground was for sale. I got a loan and put in an offer that same week. I owned Play Town for almost 4 years. Owning my own business gave me the flexibility to be with my son as much as I needed to be and I got to spend my work time with children and parents. I got to keep my world intact. Helping parents and making children happy seems to be what I do best and nothing makes me happier.

Meet Artist, Lola Juris

Meet Artist, Lola Juris

Today my guest is Lola Juris. Lola’s major passion is water-media, and she finds the inquisition of shapes a constant source of exploration. She prefers an intimate view, focusing on lush, lyrical shapes that display a sensuality bordering on the erotic. Her play of colors hopes to illuminate the shadows of the heart.

Her recent works reflect a continuing departure from the direct influence of nature, and they establish an ethereal atmosphere that searches for what to reveal and what to conceal. She uses the self as a filter to explore the world around her. In this way she articulates herself.

“Each image is an invitation into a personal and intimate world into which I plan to seduce the viewer. Therefore, watercolor’s unpredictability and delightful happenings that appear without apparent effort, suggest a communication with accidents that make it the perfect medium for this adventure.”
