Kreativ Blogger 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.

The Rules

  1. You must thank the person who has given you the award.
  2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
  3. Link the person who has nominated you for the award.
  4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
  5. Nominate 7 other Kreativ Bloggers.
  6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
  7. 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

  1. I am inspired by Art Deco, Art Nouveau and the Red Rose Girls of early American illustration history.
  2. 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.
  3. Hiking to beautiful places and painting en plein air with my little set of watercolors is a great joy.
  4. I am super inspired by many mediums and constantly experiment with new approaches to image making.
  5. I enjoy problem solving, it keeps me up late at night sometimes, but I love the thrill of putting it all together.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
