I always start my designs with sketches in my notebook, but since I'm a graphic designer, most things eventually end up on the computer. I do also love drawing, painting and printmaking. I have so many artists I admire! I really love the design and illustration work of Lab Partners, Jessica Hische, Jill DeHaan and Courtney Blair of Pattern Daily. I also absolutely love the textile designs of Melody Miller, Anna Maria Horner and Joel Dewberry. They are all so creative and have amazing and distinct styles.
I sometimes listen to music when I design-- I really love the Stars, Spoon and always the Beatles, but more often I'm listening to a podcast or audiobook.
If I could meet any character from a film, I think I'd choose Millie Dillmount from Thoroughly Modern Millie. She's so fun and clueless at the same time, and it's a great movie. I love to travel and there are a lot of places I still haven't seen, but my favorite place is always Paris. I would love to just stay in Paris for a few weeks, wandering around and eating macarons!
