My Artwork

It has been a very exciting year full of change. I became a mother and a Texan all in the span of a 3 week period. Two very big adjustments to encounter at the same time but both have been extremely fulfilling. Throughout the move, raising my daughter, being a wife, and exploring Austin I have continued to work as a freelance designer. Working from home with a baby has been a perfect way to keep my creativity flowing and be with my daughter all day.

One of my clients is Vineyard Gardens of Martha’s Vineyard. They hired me to do their entire advertising package for the year. Their vision was to take more of artistic approach in their advertising. Fortunately for me that meant combining my art background within the graphic design realm. One of the ways I did that was incorporating watercolor/sketches of their “plant of the week” specials. For variety, I created two different layouts to use as a base design.

Below are some of my favorites from the year.

I have been working on advertisements for Vineyard Gardens of Martha’s Vineyard. Their vision was to take more of artistic approach in their advertising. Fortunately for me that meant combining my art background within the graphic design realm by incorporating watercolor/sketches. Below are a couple of drawings that I just completed that will be integrated into some of their ads.

I am 38 weeks pregnant and was in need of a warm sweater to adjust to my ever-expanding belly. In the fall I designed a stylish white “maternity” jacket (posted on November 19, 2012) to wear throughout the winter. I wear it all the time and decided to recreate it with this incredible soft wool/cashmere blend material. It wears more like a sweater than a jacket and is just perfect. It will look great post pregnancy as well!

I just completed a graphic design project for The Peacedale Congregational Church of RI. They are organizing a community outreach program committed to serving children and their families, the alone and the hungry to come together at The Peace Dale Dinner Table. All are welcome to this table regardless of where they might be on life’s journey.

Their design criteria was to limit the logo colors to black, white and one other color. It will be used on stationary, flyers and a sign.  If the program is successful it may be applied to  aprons, cups, bags  etc.
