Currently living near the coast of Florida, I find endless inspiration at the beach. I draw on my training in both oil painting & graphic design in my creation of compositions & use of color. I'm also constantly inspired by my children.

Hi Alston -- it was so great getting to know you at NSS! I hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit and had safe travels. All the best to you!
Hi, Alston! Just wanted to let you know that I ordered 4 of your "We Ate Cake" journals with my Trunk Show Host Certificate recently - I think they are perfect gifts! Didn't want you to be disappointed that there is no revenue associated with that purchase when you get your quarterly statement...
Hi Alston! I noticed that your Stock the Bag design had a thin line around the white background. I assume you put it in because of the drop shadow issue so i just wanted to let you know Minted fixed the drop shadow thing this morning so you might want to try it out. :o) I'm so glad they fixed it because it was bothering me. Oh, and as a side note, thank so much for your sweet note about my holiday card. It definitely put a smile on my face when I got that note. :o)
Thank you so much, Alston! I adore your designs, and have swooned over your Merry Ribbon lettering (among the many others), so I really appreciate you liking my Born Free design! : ) Thanks!
