Probably most of you don't know this about me but I have a BFA in painting. I made art for many years and kinda stopped when I got into graphic design. I think my painting has always had a graphic feeling, so graphic design was a natural extension of that. But when I had my daughter six years ago, I sold all my oil paints and put away my easel. However, I still have acrylic and watercolor paints (which I've dug out of the closet) so I've been playing with those lately and it feels great!
Anyway, I had a ton of fun working on this latest Minted art challenge! I really feel inspired to start making more art. West Elm will be choosing a handful of art prints to be sold on their website, hence all the West Elm images. And I actually had a lot of fun doing these boards because it was like going shopping without spending my money! If you like what you see, please take a moment to rate some of my pieces on the Minted site... Just click on the images. Oh, and rating closes this Friday, 5/3! Thank you!!
