About Candice Leigh

It is a uniquely intimate and humbling experience to create designs that celebrate life changes and the quieter joys in the lives of strangers. I am so blessed to share a part of myself and my work with the Minted community! Although my career in design is just beginning, all of my artistic experiences, from painting to art history, have shaped my work and my aesthetic. I hope my interpretation of our fascinating world in all its beauty, vibrancy and whimsy brings you enjoyment. Many thanks!

Thanks for the nice comments, Candice! I gotta say, Paisley Waves is awesome! It really stands out from the "vector-y" crowd. The colors and texture are full of life!
