I love to work with textures and colorful palettes to make playful art that makes people feel happy. I love the ocean and illustration, and my two beautiful little ones who inspire me every day with their enthusiasm and curiousity for life.

Hi Lori, your help is always great and believe me when I say it has helped me greatly on my Minted Journey. I do have another question, a small one. Does the point size for the fonts refer to stroke or size? I think it must be stroke because many of the fonts ask for 9-11. Am I wrong? Thanks always, Franklin.
Hi Lori!! Thank you for your sweet comments on my non-photo entries-- I was shocked and ecstatic when I got the notification from Minted. And I really do love your designs-- I've been following them for a few years as a customer for Minted but now that I'm trying my hand at designing--only been here 3 months, super new!-- I really look forward to what you create for each challenge. Your work really does embody what Minted stands for-- great design you won't find anywhere else. And yes, I would LOVE a NC Mintie meetup. And my husband's office is in Charlotte, so I am a bit familiar with Huntersville. The Discovery Place children's museum is always a big hit in our house!
Hi Lori, your like of my Birds Botanical Peace design made my day! Thank you so much! Always a big fan of your illustrations so it's such an honor :))
Thanks for the like, Lori! I adore your work; your submissions for the non -photo challenge are no exception!
Lori, Thank you so much for your kind note. I'm so glad you enjoy them and I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know. Makes making art even more fulfulling!
Thanks so much for the likes Lori – smiling from ear-to-ear! I was waiting to see some of your amazing illustrations for the non-photo holiday challenge, I only now see that you submitted a gorgeous floral series :) Thanks again, hope you have a great weekend!
Hi Lori, Thanks so much for your sweet message: it totally made my day. I'll have to self-launch Shades of Rosy....and a few other things while I'm at it. Your work is absolutely beautiful and I always look forward to seeing what you come up with in these challenges, regardless of the category. Congrats on all your PB wins and good luck with holiday!
Lori, thank you so much for your lovely message on my corporate challenge entry. I couldn't help think that the message you had left on my Candy store birthday invitation was the lucky charm that got me the editor's pick! I hope it works this time as well ;-) You have such beautiful entries, best of luck and looking forward to seeing them make the 2016 Holiday collection!
Thanks for the info Lori, that helps. I haven't gotten my invite for dropbox. Is there a address I type in to send? Sorry for all the questions. I'm nervous and overthinking all this . Best Franklin.
maybe u could help me with a question. I have been working on the files for the design that was picked and I'm a bit confused. Do I make multiples of each color combination for each template? By the question I am sure you can see that I am confused. If you could give some quick advice, that would be great Franklin.
Loving your entire holiday collection !!

Hi Lori :) You are such a talented and wonderful artist... would you mind sharing your wisdom and help me out with these 2 submissions?
"wire" I meant "wire" :)
Thank you Lori, I took your suggestions and made the changes just under the wired.
Hello Lori, I submitted my piece for the Great Expectations challenge and was wondering if you would take a look at it. I get concern that my image saved as a jpeg for web causes the sharp quality of the image to go down. Is their a way to make an image look sharper?
Thank you Lori... coming from someone as talented as you... I am flattered :) It's been a long time since I have designed anything and first time on a site like this. What a wonderful place to come together and share our art... so inspiring!
Thank you so much on your sweet comment! I'm loving the Minted artist
community already. :)
You are too kind Lori. Thank you for your comment, it made my day;)
Hi Lori. I wanted to thank you for your likes. It means so much coming for you. I must have said it many times, but I am big fan. Your illustration style is unparalleled and oh so inspiring.
Hi Lori! Thanks so much for all your Likes! Your support means so much to me :) Total fan of all your work! Loved all your submissions in this challenge!

Oh my gosh! I think you were looking at my entries, while I was looking at yours. :) Good luck! I'm really loving the direction your style is going in, so beautiful and precious.
Hi Lori, Just wanted it thank you again for pointing me in a great direction with my dragonflies illustration. I can't thank you enough! Monica :) Sorry for the 500 messages below. lol, didn't realize!
Hi Lori. Last request, (I promise)!! I just wanted to see what you thought of the no rectangle versions. I really appreciate your help, thanks again! :)
Hi Lori, thanks SO MUCH for your feedback, so greatly appreciated! Would you leave the type spelling out the word "love" or take it out? Thanks again! Monica :)
Hi Lori, I love your work and you are such a talented artist. I have pretty much given up submitting any illustrations to minted as I know it is not my strength BUT I am trying one more time with the Pottery Barn challenge. I submitted one design and hate to ask for your time but if you had a minute I would so appreciate your input. I have a feeling that it is too "flat", I haven't added any texture and my illustrator skills are not that advanced. Anyway, thank you for being such a great inspiration! Monica :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/536170
Congrats Lori on all your beautiful editor picks, it will be a busy weekend getting files ready and finishing Elizabeth's class.
Thanks so much for your note, Lori and congratulations on your multiple wins. You are my design hero! :)
Of course! I love ALL of your work, Lori! Thanks for the compliment on my entries!
