Since opening this little shop of awesome I've expanded to include a broader range of stylish items, such as my Pantone line of hand-painted natural canvas bags with matching paint-dipped pencil sets. As a designer, I thought I would share my love for colors, specifically Pantone color profiles, since Pantone is the industry standard for color worldwide.

I have a blog, too! http://imaginatelife.blogspot.com

Also, I recently set up my own page on this really cool site called Patreon. Check it out here: http://www.patreon.com/ImaginateDesigns

Patreon is a funding site that lets people help support the artists they love, while also getting some really awesome perks in the process! Every dollar given is cherished greatly, and used wisely, and helps to keep my art alive. I hope to see you there!
