Camp Minted
IMG_4947.jpg

I went to camp over the summer - in Las Vegas! It was a magical few days full of inspiration and enthusiasm and I left feeling so grateful for the experience. Minted hosted nearly 200 artists from around the world for Camp Minted: a creative retreat featuring three action-packed days full of workshops, guest speakers, classes, and fun. Highlights included meeting all the other campers, learning from the many talented speakers and presenters, morning yoga, and a beautiful dinner and awards ceremony with a surprise appearance by Elvis! I wish I'd taken more photos and could eloquently recap the entire trip, but luckily Minted did a beautiful job of that too - here is a fantastic summary

 Some of my Minted swag!

New notecard collection by Paper Delights

My collection of notecards are now available! I'm excited to announce that I've teamed up with my friends, the mother-daughter duo and local Seattle stationary connoisseurs behind Paper Delights, to launch a new collection of individual blank notecards featuring twelve of my paintings! I have them in stock in my studio/gallery space and they can also be found in Paper Delights' Wallingford and Seahurst locations. I am so happy with how these have turned out and it was quite fun to collaborate with Paper Delights to make this idea happen!
