I often get asked “Why eggplant?” I remember sitting in the back of our car next to the kids, my husband and mother in the front seat talking about the vegetables we wanted on our way to the pick-your-own farm. Looking out of the window, I was thinking about what to name my design practice. Eggplant came to mind. Colors. Aubergine. Purple. Lime Green. I love color.
And eggplants also come in a variety of stripes, patterns, solids and shapes.
And taste good prepared in many ways, like breaded. Covered in cheese and sauce. Sprinkled with parm.
I’d like to think that my designs are the same. They taste good. Colorful. Sprinkled with patterns or not. And they solve the problem at hand, metaphorically, "what's for dinner?"
Just as there are many types of eggplants, I love and make many types of art. I was a fine artist before becoming a graphic designer. I love figure and gesture drawing. Lately my passions have been mono prints and henna art. And sunflowers. Of course.
