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.

Great idea, Kerry, about the rounded corners. Thanks so much!
Hi Kerry! I am a big fan of your designs and I was wondering, if you have a few minutes, would you mind critiquing one of my Christmas card submissions (A Merry Little Christmas)? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks so much for considering!
Hi Kerry, thanks for stopping by my Starburst design. That was actually a design from last holiday that I struggled with and never put up! For the foil option, do you mean the peace, love, etc or the stars? Also, the color is chocolate, not purple. Was trying to go for an earthy palette. I'll keep trying. Thanks so much for the suggestions. Really appreciate it!
Hi Kerry, I changed the fonts on Snow Globe and I would love your thoughts if you get a chance. Thanks again for taking the time! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/586364
Kerry thank you so much for your feedback. I had the font types you are talking about and then second guessed and chose the current. I am going back to my original instinct. :)
Hi Kerry, thanks for the nice comment and so agreed on your point of view on Facebook about "comments in general" etiquette.

Hi Kerry, Thanks for your feedback on my design! I never thought about the registration for foil. After thinking about it, I feel the design works better as a non-foil. I would love your opinion! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/573291

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 :)
