Fit Foods with Claire Logo Development

It was a blast to work with Claire as she launched her healthy meal prep business, Fit Foods with Claire.  She has an amazing vision for her new endeavor and it was fabulous being able to establish such strong branding for her message!  We delivered several permutations of the logo in her custom palette, so that she can use it everywhere!  Thanks again to Claire for this wonderful opportunity!



In progress… logo design. cha cha cha!

It’s been a blast this month working on a logo design for a local small business, she is a rockstar, and can’t wait to share more about her.  We’ve nailed every milestone, and we’re on track to deliver final files in a couple of days.  We are even producing additional artwork to extend the brand.  Lucky we have an artist/illustrator who does fabulous work.  Looking forward to dishing about this project in more detail!

Excited for a private local show…

getting ready for a lovely little private local event this weekend.  I’ll be there showing my work, and maybe even more fun, supporting other local vendor friends, maybe I can call them, “friendors”.  Anyways, it’s should be a nice time and I always appreciate a chance to meet new folks.


Expanding local work!

Very excited to be starting a new project to expand my local work. These new prints will be featured at Leesburg First Fridays and will be showing at a downtown gallery where they will also be available for purchase, stay tuned for all fabulous details!

Happy Spring!

Furiously working on my 5×7 folded holiday cards.  This will also expand my product lines as well, not just prints anymore.  Can’t wait to share more, they will be sold at local events and on my etsy shop.  Stay tuned!


On Saturday I was at a small local arts and craft fair from 8am to 3pm, it was a quieter day but still wonderful to chat with new customers, neighbors, and especially the other vendors. It’s great to collaborate at these events with my colleague and friend, this is her groovy shop Fresh Cut Designs LLC. We share event space and created a really lovely little boutique shop for our work.

Check out these quick snaps of our shop space from our event on Saturday, love how it turned out!  If something catches your eye, go check out my etsy shop here: Vine Ripe Designs on Etsy

It’s been wonderful building relationships and branching out into the local community after working mostly on custom design projects for people around the world. Focusing on more grass roots efforts to sell my work is really gratifying and I’m also able to support other local artists more effectively.

It’s been great to be a vendor at local arts and crafts shows and other events and showing some pieces at a local gallery. The goals on the horizon are to expand the places where I am showing art and hopefully have a lot of groovy spots to view and purchase my work.



NEW SHOP: So excited to announce that we have relaunched on our Etsy shop, we are currently selling art prints and photography: CHECK IT OUT!  Super excited for what’s planned later this year.  New works are in progress and we’re also getting ready to schedule several fairs/events for Summer and Fall.
