Surface Design Association Conference

Posted 6/23/11

I had a lovely time at the Surface Design Association Conference this month! I traveled to the lovely city of Minneapolis, Minnesota.  I saw so many lovely images and met lots of interesting artists.  As the SDA Creative Promise Award for Student Excellence Graduate Recipient for 2010, I also have a lovely spread in the current issue of the Surface Design Journal.


My work is still on display through August in the fair city of St. Paul in the Currents show at the Larson Gallery on the University of Minnesota Campus. I was pleased to be able to see the Surface Design Association Student Show in person.  Envy was awarded Second Place in this show!



I thought I’d share a few links of the lovely things you will want to purchase or investigate that I garnered during the conference. Enjoy!
