“Who Inspires Me?” {A Blog Hop}

A few weeks ago, my incredibly talented friend Harriet Mellor featured me on her blog as part of the “Who Inspires Me? Blog Hop.”  I was so flattered and honored!  You can read her post here. I met Harriet in a Make Art that Sells class that we both took from Lilla Rogers last fall.  I have always admired Harriet’s work.  She has a very distinct style.  It’s delicate, yet bold at the same time. She has lived in many countries around the world, and her rich background shows up beautifully in her work!  She also has a great sense of humor.   These are a few of my favorite pieces: This was the piece that got her a place in the top 50 for the Global Talent Search.  It reminds me of a vintage seed packet:   Harriet recently had her artwork licensed with Phoenix Trading.  Look at this great embossed card!   Click here to visit Harriet’s website and blog to see more of her stunning work! ***** Now I have to answer a few questions about myself: QUESTION #1 WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW? Right now I am working like crazy on lots of wholesale orders.  Gift shops are gearing up for the holidays, and they are beginning to re-stock their polka dot mitten products.  (you should see the mess that is our kitchen and garage right now!)  In my spare time, I have been trying to design some greeting cards and coordinate patterns. I’d love to start submitting my art to card companies, and/or produce my own greeting cards for wholesale. QUESTION #2 WHY DO YOU...

Giveaway!

Fall is my favorite time of year!  I just ordered some journal / sketchbooks with my “hello” bird artwork on them, and I love how they turned out!  I might consider selling these in the future!  But for now, I’m giving one away to one lucky winner.  I’m also giving away a mini 4×5 tag with my new “Fall In Love” artwork to one lucky winner.  To enter, comment on this post, or on my Instagram post with the same picture.  I’ll draw a winner tomorrow, October 2nd, 2014!  Good...
Round 2: Semi-Finals!

Round 2: Semi-Finals!

As you know, my “Find Joy In The Ordinary” piece made it into the top 50 for Lilla Rogers’ Global Talent Search.  I was so excited!     Here is why I have been sharing so many pictures of Paisley lately!  She was my inspiration for my children’s art piece for round 2!  I would love it if you could go vote!  Here is the link:  http://lillarogers.com/gts-2014-round-2/      ...

Global Talent Search

I uploaded my terrarium artwork for the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search today!  It’s not due until next Monday, but we were encouraged to upload early.  So I worked ALL weekend on my assignment… I could have tweaked it and added to it forever, but I have a lot of work to do this week, so I decided to go with it today!  I really love how it turned out.  There are so many people in the competition that I’m fairly certain that I won’t be chosen.  But at least I had fun making it, and now I have a great new addition to my collection!  I will be able to make numerous coordinating pieces of artwork with all the icons and patterns I put into my one submission.  Can’t wait to share it with...
