New Logo Branding For Phoenix

You may have noticed after logging on and reviewing my site that I got a new logo. I enlisted the help of students at Highline College which is where I got my Associate of Applied Science Degree. I got a business plan and an updated logo as well. And...I like it! It offers curves and style and reflects the spirit of Phoenix, not to mention yours truly. What more could a woman ask for? And at this moment, the ashes of the Phoenix (that I thought was a mystical bird) seem all to real as the air quality in these...

SUMMER CREATION

SUMMER CREATION

Hello Summer!  Summer in the Pacific Northwest is amazing and rich with creative inspiration stemming from nature! The desire to play in the dirt, sand and surf is great as is the desire to photograph the beauty around me and MAKE ART!  My most recent artistic endeavor is working with digital transfer techniques originating from my photos.

Enjoy and have a great day!

NEW TOTES STYLES

NEW TOTES STYLES

Tote bags are wonderful for many reasons. Mainly because of the many ways you can use them. Through all that use though they will get dirty because of all the love they endure. I decided to make some fun totes using old fashioned photographic processes featuring a photo I took of a hydrangea.  One of the processes is called a cyanotype which was invented in 1840 by Sir John Herschel. It has a blue tone and in the 1870's they used it for architectural blue prints. Now mind you I took the knowledge I had and did it digitally. In...
