Over the next few weeks, we'll be working on her branding, logo, and a new website! I couldn't be more excited. Who wouldn't want to design for artistry as beautiful as this? Stay tuned for sneak peeks of the process. 

In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of the stunning arrangements she made for my wedding this past June.

Photo Retouching: Gramps

This was a long over-due gift to my mother - the restoration of one of the few photos we have of her grandfather at his watchmaker's bench. Gramps was a professional jeweler and watchmaker in Salisbury, NC (not far from where my family lives now). You might be able to make out his crutches in the background - in his late twenties he suffered from crippling rheumatoid arthritis that made it impossible for him to walk without them. I never knew him, but I love tracing the urge to craft and create through the generations of my family.

Let's Get Chocolate Wasted!

During my time at SBC Advertising, I had the pleasure of creating the sign for my Art Director's bridal shower! The theme? Let's get chocolate wasted! I had a little extra time with it, so I decided to step away from the computer and flex my pen and ink skills again. The final design was colored in Photoshop.

Few things are as lovely as holding a pen in hand. A joy to return to after the computer stoops my shoulders and kinks my neck. Definitely my version of a creative reboot.

The project can also be viewed on Behance.
