I never expected my blog to be nominated for an award. I am honored to accept the Kreativ Blogger award from fellow art licensing artist, internet guru and renowned penguin artist, Jen Goode – jgoode.com.
The Kreativ Blogger award originated in May 2008 in a post by Huldas Verden, a blogger from Norway. This award comes with the following requirements.
- You must thank the person who has given you the award.
- Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
- Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
- Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
- Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
- Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
- Leave a comment on each of the blogs to let them know they have been nominated. (Note – like Jen I used other social media methods to notify each person since it doesn’t make sense to post something this cool as a plain old comment on an unrelated blog post.)
7 things of Interest About Me
- I am inspired by Art Deco, Art Nouveau and the Red Rose Girls of early American illustration history.
- I knew I wanted to be a professional artist since I was 12 years old and took my first college art classes when I was 16.
- Hiking to beautiful places and painting en plein air with my little set of watercolors is a great joy.
- I am super inspired by many mediums and constantly experiment with new approaches to image making.
- I enjoy problem solving, it keeps me up late at night sometimes, but I love the thrill of putting it all together.
- Swing dancing is a favorite past time. My first date was Swing dancing with my sweetheart, now husband, Benjamin Hummel. We have no plans to stop dancing any time soon.
- I am enthusiastic about meeting new artists and getting them “linked in” with great educational information and resources. I guess this is why I like to teach at Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design too!
