Im a graphic designer who loves to work with non-profits and small businesses. I love being a part of projects that help bring awareness to the needs around us and help better the lives of people.
I teach Graphic Design at a college in South Florida, and I am constantly consumed by real quotation marks and the proper use of dashes. It can be stressful watching other people make things all day long and helping others make their work better. Meanwhile, it never seems like I never have enough time to work on my own projects. Minted gives me a nice break from reality…a no-strings-attached design community where I can just experiment with designing unfamiliar content. The challenges are short, and I can do it in a weekend when I want to procrastinate in the grading department.I first became interested in Minted when I noticed the delicacy of the design aesthetic. I’ve never been one to be very delicate when it comes to my design/art, but it’s definitely something I would like to add to my style repertoire. I find it very challenging since it goes against my instincts. With every competition I learn more, and I do think my awareness is increasing; that makes me happy.

About me: My family & I live in Seattle, WA. We love the Pacific Northwest! My husband is a sustainable product designer. We have one daughter, her name is Ava. She just turned 3 last week! My design creed is "little people & clean design go hand & hand". I would describe my aesthetic as modern, playful & feminine. I love good design, mini cupcakes, nature & traveling.

My Public Profile: Inkblot Paper Designs strives to charm & impress family, friends & strangers too with whimsical & stylish designs. With a BA in Studio Art (painting to be specific) & background in catering & event planning, I love all things events, from the design to the wine! Secretly (well not so much anymore), I would also love (and feel I possess the skills) to be a stylist, pastry chef, florist & dental technician. But, who has the time? Instead I’m based out of Omaha, NE creating lovely designs for people all across the country.
A bit more info: As it says above, I have a background in catering/event planning…but actually it is not really behind me yet. I have a full time dir. of catering position at a hotel, so in the time I can get away from my ‘real job’ I design over my lunch hour, when I get home from work and into the wee hours of the morning. Eventually, I will take this design gig full time, when my husband (love him) finishes his Masters and finds a ‘real job’ of his own. I truly love design and from everything I’ve seen, love minted as well. In the few months I’ve been submitting, I challenge myself to make sure my designs meet the high standards of the minted design community. Now I will just cross my fingers that maybe, just maybe, one of my designs is up to snuff and will make it onto minted for sale...someday (it happened with the Save the Date Challenge!). Thanks for welcoming me to the community!
We uncover design genius through ongoing design competitions. At Minted, all that matters is good design. Designers submit, and the Minted community votes to tell us what to sell.
"Our purpose in life is to uncover exceptional design from all over the world and bring this to savvy consumers who won't accept anything else."
