About Ria Sharon

My art degree is in painting and printmaking and I've been a designer and illustrator for 18 years. I'm obsessed with vintage typography and hand lettering. I'm inspired by anything made by hand, by organic patterns found in nature, and words that make me laugh and/or cry. By day, I work in higher ed and in my free time I juggle art, great books, a couple of tweens and a crazy dog.

Hi Ria, your designs make me smile. The Nonconformist is wonderful. I used to live in Seattle. jeez I had to look at Round Pegs Square Hole for a bit before I saw the square staring right at me! Cuties look like they are puckering up for a kiss. All the best to you.

Ria thanks for the like on my light as a feather piece. I really like your round pegs piece. And saw your building of your Class of 2033 on your blog. So fun to see how you put it together! Good luck in the challenge.

Thanks for your kind comment Ria, I haven't had much experience with watercolour so it is still something I am experimenting with at this stage. I love your style, your work is beautiful :)

Ria, thanks for the input - very much appreciated!! I've designed wedding invitation for so long that i often do a script or whimsical font for names and location and then a serif or sans serif for all the other info. Kinda second nature ;) What I meant by date was i did it as 5.25.15, vs May 25, 2015...wasnt' sure I was liking that. Good point though about whimsical and non-whimsical. Definitely something to consider!
