Valentines Day Ruminations

February is coming soon, and I have been hemming and hawing about doing a design for Valentines Day. Should I do one, yes or no??

Personally, I don’t have a lot of love for this holiday of romance and so I had sort of planned not to do any Valentine designs. However, unexpectedly,  an adorable design popped into my head, unbidden, and I am loathe to let adorable designs go to waste!

So, I began weighing my reasons for hesitating.

In the end, I couldn’t really come up with any solid reasons for not doing that adorable V-day design (which was still lurking in my head) except, perhaps, that it was silly. But what kind of reason is that?? Besides, this isn’t about ME, this is about the creating of fun designs!

So, here is my own unique take on a Valentines Day design:

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
