Hi, my name is Kerry, owner/designer behind Paper Dahlia! I'm a graphic designer with a degree in painting and a love for all things beautiful. After years of focusing solely on design, I've recently rediscovered my love for creating art thanks to Minted. I find inspiration in nature, fashion, art, photography, and typography - just to name a few.

hi Kerry---just reaching out to a seasoned artist in the community. I am wondering how you scan your watercolor pieces in to get the beautiful resolution and clarity in your work. If you don't mind sharing your methods, I would be most appreciative!
Thank you so much Kerry, I am in shock! :)
Thanks for all of the kind/helpful comments, Kerry! I really appreciate it! :)
Great minds think alike!
Thanks, Kerry! You made my day!
I had to go look up 'penned'! It's lovely! I hadn't seen it before! Yes, there is the tilted polaroid-like photo and the kraft background, but they are also very different with their font choices, too. So many amazing choices in this competition- it looks like yours is very 'liked'- so hopefully that is a great sign for your design! xo
Hi Kerry - I just ordered your herringbone art print, looking forward to hanging it up! I don't think I have ever bought anything yellow before :)

Kerry, thanks for your comment. The flowers are a vector file.
Kerry, thanks so much for commenting on my reindeer games design.. I think that I prefer having the contrast of the quicksand as well but it did not feel quite balanced how it was.. I have added it to the main heading and think it is working better but would love your opinion. I am a huge fan of your work, your typography in particular always stands out to me. thanks so much!
Hey Kerry, I just wanted to stop by and let you know I am a huge fan of your work. Your designs are always at the top of my favs list :)

Kerry, thanks for the kind words on my pirate design. And I think it's super cool that your daughter is having a pirate party!!!
