I have been a graphic designer for over 10 years and have loved art/design all my life. I studied design at the State University of New York at New Paltz and have a Bachelor of FIne Arts in Graphic Design. It brings me great pleasure to create stationery designs. Hope you enjoy!

Thank you so much for purchasing my stationary designs.

Please write a short statement about where you call home
and what inspires you as an artist. (Limited to 275 characters
or less). This note will be displayed to customers on the
product details page of your art prints on the Minted website.
Sample: Annie Clark approaches her art with a graphic
designer's eye. A long-time resident of the Mission in San
Francisco, she is constantly inspired by the diverse color and
texture of her neighborhood.
With my work I always like to reflect the no nonsense, easygoing personality that I have. I grew up in upstate New York and now reside in the Lake Norman area of North Carolina. I live near the lake, which I enjoy walking by everyday. Hope you enjoy my art!
Please write a short note to customers who purchase your
art prints. Every Minted Art Print will come with a special
folded card that includes your picture and a thank you from the
artist, adding a special personal touch that helps customers
remember you and your artwork. This is separate from the Thank
You Note above and is important to position the art piece as a
high-end piece with credibility.
To help us prepare your special card, please make sure that
the image of you on the site is a photograph, not a logo, and
please draft a thank you note to customers, limiting yourself
to 150 characters. No words will be added to your statement,
so your statement should be written in its entirety,
including your name. Please do not include your contact info or
a URL. This information could create confusion for follow-up
Sample: Hello! I am so honored you chose my artwork to
hang in your home. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have in
making it. Best to you, Annie
Hello! Thank you so much for selecting my piece! I hope it brings much joy and happiness to your home! Warmest regards, Christina Novak
Thanks Christina What do you think of the refinements now
Here are some more refinements done to my design please take a look thanks http://www.minted.com/design-rating/121099
Hi Christine, you're welcome. I was looking over the rules and I am still trying to figure out how to add the colors to my swatch books, ugh. I have not even begin to design anything for letterpress challenge. -R
Aw, you are most welcome! You are uber talented:)
Christina, you've always given me helpful advice and and a pat on the back whether I did well or not. Those things aren't easily forgotten. I always look forward to advice myself, so I know what you mean by 'when others notice things that just bypassed me'. I continue and look forward to growing as a designer right beside you guys!
Thanks again for your comments on Ashabi. I totally agree about the design being a little heavy for the type. I will refine this design per your comments. Thanks again for the feedback, very appreciated.
Christina thank you so much for the feedback. My design is intentionally complex. African inspired art/design tends to be bold, quite often complex, daring yet beautiful. I will clean up the design per your comment but still retain the complexity of my signature designs.
Thanks for your support I am going submit a much simpler design. It is a learning experience.
Thanks for your super nice comment, Christina!!! :)
Hi Christina here is the adjustments that you asked for http://www.minted.com/design-rating/118797 thanks
Christina, great idea about the die cut! See what you think. Thank you so much.
Hello Cristina thank you for the very nice comment I have fixed up the black background. As far as customizing the answer is yes. I have been doing calligraphy for a while each one is individually done. I have great pleasure and get inspiration from doing this. Please look for some more. I love the way paper feels in my hand.
Hey, Christina! Just send me a friend request, and I'll invite you to the group. :)
Christina, thanks so much for your feedback on my design. I would love to hear your thoughts on my latest changes :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/91863
Congrats on ur art pick :)...nice work
Big Congrats on your 'Call for Entries' pick! Totally loved that piece!
It looks great Christina!
Thanks so much for your kind words. Really appreciate it. Chris
Sweet! - Welcome to Charlotte! Have you guys scoped out the area yet? Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any Qs. We have been here since '02; it was going to be short-term, and I can't believe it's now over 10 years! It's a nice mix of mountains and beach within driving range. :)
Thanks for always being so supportive Christina!
Thanks, Christina - your note made my day! :)
Stuck at my real job, so won't be able to fix before the deadline. :(
Hi Christina, I changed it to more of your idea. Thanks for all your time and great advice! Chris
Thank you Christina; I am sorry I did not understand what you meant. :) I will get the hang of this and you are right it is totally addictive! Chris
Hi Christina, I made some changes on sweet pea; see what you think. Maybe the little sprigs make it too busy?http://www.minted.com/design-rating/81580?filter=all&sort=createat
Christina, thank you so much for the awesome feedback. I will try what you recommended and send to you so that you can tell me if that is what you envisioned. I am new to minted and I so appreciate your time! Chris
You had so many great designs ... I knew you'd have a winner! Looking out for more of your beautiful work in future challenges.
Christina, Thanks so much for taking the time to reply to my question. I'm not familiar with that company — I definitely plan to check them out! Thanks again!
Thanks so much for your note on my page, Christina! :)
You're welcome! I hope they feel better soon!
Thanks for you comment Christina:)
Thanks!! ; )
Thanks so much, Christina! I really appreciate it! I hope they announce the Holiday Party invitations soon - I'm still rooting for yours (especially Big Holiday Bash) and my other ones! :)
You should join - you can set your account up with everything private (so no one can search for you, etc.). the designer group is private, so your posts will only be visible to members of the group. In the meantime, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I can pass on some of what was discussed. :)
btw - is it your Big Workplace Thanks? Love that one! I hope some big corporations are buying lots... :)
you can feel free to invite other Minted designers to the group once you are in it, as well! you have to be facebook "friends" with them to invite them.
Hi, Christina!!! If you are on facebook, you should join our Minted designer group - that's been one of the discussions in the past. Just look up my name (my photo is the same as it is here) and friend me so I can invite you into the group (it's a private, not public group). I think typical #'s of sales very from category to category and time of year, etc. But you can get soem more insight from the discussion I mentioned. I'll look for you on facebook! :)
Hi Christina, thanks for your kind comment on Heart and Home. I actually had the same thought. Maybe for the next art print contest :).
Hi Christina! Thanks so much for the great comment. God bless you always.
Hey Christina - I added more leaves back in and like my Autumn Wine and Dine better. Thx for your help on it - I just don't think its going to do much
Hi, Christina! Just wanted to thank you for your comment on my Cocktail Party design - I was worried about changing the color of that one, so your comment was super helpful! :)
Christina - I want to thank you for the time you take to comment on my submissions. I feel like it's taking forever to understand the whole Minted "look" so I especially appreciate your input. Congrats on your wins so far - best or luck, I love your big bold designs!! :o)
that's so funny Christina - I've never heard that! I think I see the resemblance a little bit in this newest pic. Totally flattered to hear I resemble Kate Winslet!!!
Thanks and congrats back at ya! :)
Congrats, Christina! Love Big Workplace Thanks.
CONGRATULATIONS CHRISTINA!!! You deserved those wins... hope you have many more to come!
for your "note," that is!
Thanks, so much for your not, Cristina! And congrats to you, as well! I love "Toast."
Thanks for making me smile this morning Christina. Hope that whatever the mission was, we were successful! :)
Thanks Christina! I honestly wasn't sure whether or not my art was 'Minted style'. You are one of the designers that has always supported me. Thanks for being so nice. Look forward to entering and growing more at Minted everyday with you! :)
I have one in the works, just having trouble finding time to get it done. But I always like to peak at everyone else's work. Everything on this site is so beautiful!
Hi Christina, love your illustration style ... looking forward to seeing your entries in the Deck the Office Holiday Challenge!
