Scholarship Short List!


Recently I submitted my designs for the “Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design” Scholarship competition in association with the Print & Pattern blog. And I was surprised that out of over 300 applications I made it into the Top 50! I didn’t win, but I am very inspired by all the artwork submitted and it’s just more rocket fuel to pursue onward and upward with new designs coming soon :) Click Here to see some finalists including yours truly. And click Here to see my Agency’s post about it as well!

i Love Paper


I decided to participate in my first Blog Hop, because, well, as an artist I LOVE PAPER!! And for me in particular my weapon of choice is the sketchbook. The excitement of getting a brand new sketchbook coupled with the anxiety of making the first drawing perfect. Well this year I’m trying to break through that artistic apprehension and just DRAW DRAW DRAW!!! Not thinking, just drawing, the thinking will come organically as I sketch. I am not going to be perfect, I am not going to worry about which of my many sketchbooks I will draw in, I will just draw in whichever one inspires me to draw in at that moment! Here it goes!!!
