My Eye for Design

I have been a long-time graphic and photography geek. In the late 60s I was the proud recipient of a first place ribbon at the local and state fair for my photography of a giraffe. My camera was a Brownie, and I was off and running.

My first poem was published when I was nine, and I have not put a pen or camera down since. Between the ribbon and the McCall's magazine print, I knew I wanted to write and take photos. That is what I have done over the years. I love to travel, and since they invented the data card, I take hundreds of photos wherever I go. My camera of choice now is a Nikon, and I use my laptop to write.

I freelance for several publications and have a column in a polymer clay magazine.

I am a member of The Artisan Group, which provides gifts for celebrities and press members through gifting suites. I have participated in the Primetime Emmys, the New York Fashion Week, have gifted to stylists for consideration in upcoming episodes of The Voice, Hart of DIxie and 2 Broke Girls. I am a product sponsor for the 2014 Queen of the Universe pageant, and I have provided earrings to the Joyful Child Foundation for the safety of exploited children.

My first computer in 1995 captured my love of graphics as soon as I discovered PAINT. It only took a month of that to make the move to Photoshop. I use a Wacom tablet, my mouse, and whatever else I can to draw and design. Often enough, you will find me with a thousand Prismacolor pencils and an open sketch book.

I worked as a beta tester for Paintshop Pro when it started and continued until Corel bought it. My PSP graphic site is huge and a resource for those working in PSP. www.ladysara.org. For almost 20 years, I have been creating design elements, including fonts for graphic arts.

My hundreds and hundreds of photos and digital art have been the basis for my patterns both in cross stitch and beading. I have my beading patterns over in my polymerclaybeads shop.

I am fortunate enough to travel from beach to mountain and back again with my camera, so there are always at least one design that is worth printing. My work is also printed through Zazzle. Some of my counted cross stitch designs have delighted me enough to create entire matching kitchen sets.

The patterns will keep coming, because as we say at my parent company, Blue Morning Expressions, the creativity never stops.....
