2012... what a year!

I started out the year as a freelance in-house designer for Fisher-Price, brought in to help with their immense rebranding initiative. This was the most comprehensive, intense branding project I have ever been a part of. I had the privilege to work directly with many of the designers, marketing managers and staff to incorporate the new design on product packaging, cross sells, trade magazine ads, sales brochures, point of purchase displays and catalogs. It was such a fun year!

Here is a sampling of the projects I completed.

Along with my commitment to Fisher-Price, I continued to work on various projects with my clients as well as exhibit and show my watercolors.

I won a Best of Show for my painting Boat on the Beach and earned praise for my work in all of my exhibits. I will continue my watercolor journey in 2013 and keep posting my achievements and growth.

The most memorable event of 2012 was my son Ryan's wedding day in Letchworth State Park at the Glen Iris Inn to his beautiful bride, Lindsey. It was a perfect summer day, full of love and smiles and laughter. I am so happy for both of them!

This pretty much summed it up.... a spectacular day!

I can't wait to see what 2013 brings!
