renwick gallery : wonder |

Over the weekend I finally got to go to the Renwick Gallery in DC. I have been wanting to go for a while since it was renovated, but the line was always crazy long. After getting up early and getting some coffee, my boyfriend and I went for it. It was truly inspiring to see

New Year 2016 |

Last year was pretty incredible. My little printmaking business branched out a bit from my corporate graphic design.

The last stop on our trip was Barcelona. It was my first time in Spain, and I know I will return – maybe even to move there. On accident we arrived on one of Barcelona’s biggest nights of the year: Festival of Sant Joan All across the city they light bonfires and set off fireworks.
