texture of her neighborhood.
Yolanda Mariak Chendak approaches her artwork with a retro flare combined with the sensibilities of European design. Living near New York City her entire life has been a constant inspiration to her creativity.

Thanks again Yolanda for the constructive feedback and kind words on my design! I truly appreciate your help!
Thanks for the comment Yolanda! I keep thinking that design is TOO plain, but I feel like adding anything to it would be too much!
Hi Yolanda! Thanks for your sweet comment on my Garden Delight design! I love your Stitched Up design. I've been working on a heart design too but I think it's different enough. I always feel a little weird when there's a similar element used... bound to happen I suppose. Anyway, looking forward to seeing more of your work. You have a lovely style.
Hi Yolanda! Thanks so much for your comments about the minibooks! Congrats on your latest win in the bday challenge! I would love to come to the minted meet up in NYC. I have no idea yet if I will be able to make it. I guess that's probably the closest they will get to either of our areas? (I'm about 30 minutes northwest of Philadelphia)
Thank you so much for your nice comments on my minibook designs. I love your work and I think your Papercut Flowers design is one of the best in the challenge :o) Best of luck!!
That's very kind of you :) We'll see ... hope so!
Hi Yolanda, thank you for your comments - and congrats on your judges and editors picks for the happy birthday and holiday challenges!!
