Could you tell us about your work? What inspires you?
- When I’m not working 9 to 5 in the land of corporate design or hiding out in some corner of my home armed with a glue gun and glitter to prettify something, my graphic design passion in the stationery world is done with many tools, from a sketchbook and pencil in hand to umpteen design programs opened on the computer with a Wacom tablet attached. What inspires me? Many things do, people, places, things… But the biggest to stand out would simply be “bold colors”. Georgia O’Keeffe and her many boldly colored flower paintings have been a long time inspiration to me.
How would you describe the style of most of your designs?
- Universal. Whether it’s a holiday party or baby announcement, many of my designs here can be used multiple times for various event types.
How has your art changed over the years? Do you have any predictions of what it will be like in the future?
- I think my work has grown over time and with age. I believe as you mature “like a fine wine” you broaden your horizontal and see the many possibilities in the smallest of things.
What made you decide to work with pingg.com?
- After searching for “digital” complementary solutions (e.g. party reminders and thank yous to name a couple) to my existing printed stationery line, I came across pingg.com as a new and fresh site that fit my and my standing clientele’s needs.
If you had to choose a favorite invite you have made, what would it be?
- The last one I just did always seems to become my new favorite with my printed line of cards, but speaking in terms of my pingg collection I would have to say Rainbow Circus. I think that one holds a special place in my heart since it was a staff pick as well : )
What benefits have you found the Internet has for your work?
- Exposure, networking with like minded individuals and inspiration for more creative projects to come.
