Artist and Designer at HFW Surface Designs
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
My style is bold, colorful, organic, energetic, and modern. I recently started designing a variety of products, including phone cases, wall art, apparel, and home decor.
What inspires you?
I seek and draw inspiration from everything (travels, the current moment, nature, colors, people, and experiences). I used to be intimidated by a blank piece of paper, but have learned that nothing in life (and art) is a mistake. Each mark, each act, each move, is meant to be. It’s not about the final product, but the process of getting there.
What do you love about being a designer?
I enjoy the freedom of doing what I love and making the world a more colorful, beautiful place. Drawing heightens my state of awareness, allowing me to lose sense of space, place, and time. I can’t think of anything as satisfying as translating an internal emotion/state/idea into a visual representation.
Where can you be found/what are you doing on your days off?
I recently moved to California from the east coast, so much of my free time is spent exploring new areas with my husband and our cute long-haired Chihuahua, Stella. We spend a lot of time outdoors hiking, biking, or walking around. Stella is satisfied just rolling around in the grass. You can also find me at the local farmer's market or at antique/garage sales searching for treasures.
