August is Artist Appreciation Month!

We are celebrating
Artist Appreciation Month!

Today I would l love to share with you which artists have inspired me throughout my career and development as an artist. 

Early on as a little girl, art was an integral and innate part of my life. I remember how much I loved having paper, pencils and crayons with me at all times.  Used to draw tiny doodles on my notebook margins and little scraps of papers. Always loved drawing little children, nature (especially flowers) and cute critters.

These illustrators were of great influence and inspiration in my childhood. I discovered their art while visiting my local stationery store when I was in elementary school and I remember saving some of my allowance money to buy some greeting cards. I used to tape the greeting cards on my bedroom wall next to my desk and spend countless hours looking at the beautiful artwork.

Betsey Clark

Joan Walsh Anglund

Beatrix Potter

Holly Hobbie


After college, I moved to United States and began my career as a designer. As I continued developing my career as a graphic designer and illustrator, I discover two amazingly talented illustrators.

These two artists became great trendsetters and mentors for many artists like me. I loved their use of color, intricate design and patterns in their works. Not only you found their work in stationery products but also collectable items, home decor and textiles. They have welcomed thousands of fans around the world and continue to create more art for all of us love! Still today, I LOVE their work!

To all my fellow artists out there...

Wishing you a fabulous, artsy, inspirational Month! 

Keep creating!

Day Three. Today for my Facebook 3/5 Art Challenge i'm thinking about Springtime. The bunny and kitty illustrations are designs that I previously released as rubber stamps. For coloring I used Copics markers and for the top of the cupcake I used Liquid Applique medium. The flower sketch was created using watercolors (Sakura Koi Watercolor).
