New Design!

Whee! I’ve been a little absentee around here. Two of my brothers came to visit my husband and I the last couple weeks and, funny guys that they are, they were more interested in running around seeing Chicago sights than watching me blog. So we had our great fun, and now they’ve gone home and we are getting back to our normal routine around here.

I’ve been working on this new design, You Light Up My Life, for sometime now. I saw these lights in a boutique in downtown Chicago some months ago. I love interesting lights and these really caught my interest. I loved the simple design, the colors – softly blending from orange to white, and how they hung in clusters from the ceiling. I took a picture and decided they would make a great onesie print!

I sketched them out and then the sheet of paper got hidden behind some other designs in my book of designs and I forgot about them, until recently! And now, finally, after months of waiting, here is my newest design: You Light Up My Life.

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?
