A scientist looking for a creative outlet

My husband and I wanted a creative and personal way to share holiday wishes with family and friends. We both love to cook, and after we got married, I hit on the idea of illustrated recipe cards. I draw fresh seasonal foods from local farms and pair them with a simple, tasty recipe. Then I convert the pictures to Illustrator files and have them printed using traditional flat (offset) printing by ProPrint in Boston. I love playing with transparencies and seeing how flexible I can be with a minimum number of ink colors.

I was also been looking for ways to sell some of my favorite photos, and hit on the idea of turning them into notecards. I design the cards in Illustrator and have them printed by PSPrint in Oakland (using digital 4-color offset).
