Networking, collaborating and involvement…
In her own words
I am a Chicago graphic designer and artist! I have always loved the idea of finding, reusing, creating from old things. My art involves freehand painting on all found materials – particularly vintage windows, glass pieces and reused wood. Im constantly running through Ukrainian Village alleys searching for old tabletops, shelving, glass, anything that I can recreate from. I have also recently been scavenging old dishware & vases for painting, which have turned out beautifully. I have also produced my designs as vinyl laptop decals. My goal is to apply my designs more commercially as patterns; on dishes, rugs, wallpaper.
Words of advice
Networking, collaborating and involvement is the best way to gain visibility and meet other creatives who will endlessly encourage and support you throughout your career.
