Hi, I'm Kristen, a graphic designer who received my degree from UGA and now currently reside in Augusta, GA. I love finding inspiration from my other hobbies, including knitting, sewing, painting, and making jewelry. I am always striving to find new ways to grow and better myself as a designer which is why I love Minted. The design community at Minted has been an amazing tool and resource and I am so thrilled to have a place to share ideas and advice with such talented designers!

Kristen, I can not thank you enough for sharing your wealth of knowledge in regards to adding texture. I am right there with you when it comes to books, so much better to reference than searching endlessly online.. it is a nice break away from the computer screen : ) I just ordered a few books including the texture one you suggested, I can not wait to get them!! Thanks again! kerri
I started a discussion in the forum looking for help with adding texture to artwork. Your illustrations always have amazing texture.. wondering if you would mind sharing your techniques with us. http://www.minted.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=469&page=1#Item_11 thanks so much!
