honoree2015slider

I’m extremely honored today to let you know that I have been named as one of 2015’s 40 Women to Watch Over 40. The list includes forty women over the age of 40 years old who are “reinventing, leaning in, and creating momentum that will be felt by those beyond their community and field of work.”

The yearly list was created by Christina Vuleta and Whitney Johnson to bring awareness to amazing things being accomplished by women over 40.

This is a great honor for me and I am humbled to be included!

You can read about the other women on this year’s list here.

PRINT Magazine // 75th Anniversary

{Piece I designed for the 75th Anniversary Edition of Print Magazine}

Every now and again I have to pinch myself, and this past week was one of those times. I finally got my hands on the 75th Anniversary Edition of PRINT Magazine (a bimonthly American magazine about visual culture and design). A few months back, design luminary Debbie Millman, on behalf of PRINT Magazine, asked 75 “of the best creatives working today” (their words) to design the word “print.” All of the pieces were exhibited at the recent HOW Conference and just 34 were chosen to appear in the magazine. Mine was one of the pieces chosen. To boot, I’m sitting on a spread with two friends (Jessica Hische and Kate Bingaman-Burt) and two design heroines Maira Kalman and Jennifer Morla.

Just Add Color Botanicals on the Meredith Vieira Show!

05/01/15

Super excited that my coloring book Just Add Color: Botanicals was on the Meredith Vieira show yesterday! You can watch the clip above and see Botanicals front and center! It’s sold out everywhere but back in stock this month and you can order on Amazon and they’ll ship when it’s available again (should be soon).

This just in, too: I’ve just signed on to create three more coloring books for the Just Add Color series, out next year!

Have a great Friday, friends!

Friends, I’ve done several interviews lately and wanted to share the links with you in case you are the interview-reading kind!

+First, this interview out today from the magazine Dirty Laundry — all about starting in the art world late in life, imposter syndrome, self promotion, illustration vs. fine art and other nuggets.

+Next up, this interview with Stephanie Reagan for her series Material Studies (Stephanie started this series recently and already has several great artist interviews up on her site).

+Recently Caitlin Bacher of Little Farm Media posted this interview with me about the role of social media in promoting my work and on my art career in general.

+Here’s an interview I did with Mohawk Paper about PERCEPTION.

+I already linked to it in this post last week on Rejection & Criticism, but here’s my interview with Susan Muldar for her series The Rejection Chronicles.

Thanks for reading and sharing.

Happy Tuesday!
