Holiday Inspiration Boards

The holiday shopping season is just revving up and I’m super excited to have a collection of holiday cards and products for sale at Minted.com this year! So, to get you in the Christmas spirit, I made inspiration boards, featuring a few of my non-photo holiday designs, Pine and BerryMerry and Gold and Elegant Wreath. Feel free to give my boards a like or, even better, just pin them! ;) Be sure to check out the rest of Minted’s holiday card collection and gift shop.

Minted Art Fair Challenge

I’ve been painting a little bit here and there and recently had the chance to submit some work into Minted’s Art Fair Challenge.  Lately, I’ve been taking more breaks away from working at the computer and getting back into painting (and other creative projects). My submissions may seem a little all over the place this time around, but I plan to hone in on a direction or theme in the near future. For now, I’m continuing to explore different mediums, techniques and subject matter and having fun doing so.

If you have a few minutes to to spare, please vote for my art entries at the links below or on this voting page right here. Rate art prints that resonate with you (on a scale of 1-5) and help Minted curate their next collection! Thanks for checking out my work!! :)
