Art is not what you see, but what you make others see. – Edgar Degas Last night I had the honor of judging local student artwork for a juried art competition that is near and dear to my heart.

She is the mastermind behind the locally famed Rosetti art exhibit and puts as much passion into curating this show as any of her stunning watercolor paintings. Each year I am brought in along with respected teachers and designers to accomplish the nearly impossible task of judging student works. I know […]

Jessica and I spent a whirlwind day in NYC on Monday at The National Stationery Show. The show albeit smaller than other years was a challenge to cover in one day but we did it and managed to leave feeling invigorated and brimming with ideas!
