She was the winner of this contest and it was so fun to meet her in person after the fact. Amy's a graphic designer at a children's book company in Boston and is truly a creative soul...
I've lived on the South Shore my whole life, but I started working in Boston a year and a half ago.
I think that along with many other aspects of the city, Boston is a melting pot when it comes to style and fashion. You can see a change in style when you move from one neighborhood to another, and there’s even a noticeable shift from one street to the next.
I have been blogging since March of 2011, so a year and a half!
What I love most about blogging is that it inspires me to do what I love. I have been creating art for as long as I can remember, but now that I have a place where I can share it with others, I want to do it more.
I probably wouldn’t go too far. I love the seasons of New England and being able to be close to the beach in the summertime and near the mountains in the winter. I could see myself retiring lakeside somewhere in New Hampshire.
If I could go to any fashion show, I would want to go to any Project Runway fashion show. That show inspired me to start sewing my own clothes years ago. I love the different styles among the designers and how they have to think creatively and work with unique materials.
I tend to try to cram a lot of things into my Sundays while trying to relax at the same time. So I’d have to say that an ideal Sunday would be one that went by slowly and somehow lasted at least 72 hours.
1. My family… Mom, Dad, Kelly, John, Cuda, Steven, Brendan, and Jake!
2. My friends
3. My art supplies
My readers may not know that I have a lot of hobbies outside of my art. I enjoy running, playing soccer, hiking, kickboxing, snowboarding, and playing guitar and piano.
I like to dress my best with whatever I see fit for the occasion. Therefore, my best is always changing. Depending on where I’m going, my best might be a feminine dress with sky-high pumps, a 90’s grunge shirt with jeans and a beat up pair of Chuck Taylors, or a winter jacket and snow pants that perfectly coordinate with my snowboard and boots.
