I won my very first greeting card design contest (Easter card) in the 4th grade and was ecstatic to have my picture taken for the local newspaper. Ever since I was a little girl I have been drawing and later combined computer technology to enhance my illustration skills in college. I have a degree in graphic design and particularly love designing anything that allows me to showcase my illustrations.

Hi Mandy! I wanted you to know what a fan I am & to ask you for some advice :) I've played around with pattern making & find it more difficult then it looks. Do you have any good ideas, websites or tips on where I could get more help in that area? Your patterns are always so beautiful. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org when you get time. Thanks so much Mandy!
Thanks for telling me about it. Now if I could only have half as many creative designs as you, that would be an honor! :)
