I’m tragically far behind posting this, but February got away from me in a big way.
But I hope you’ll all be able to forgive me given how fun and beautiful this month’s wallpaper is! This month’s artist, like so many creatives, took a meandering career path to get where she is today, and she has done it spectacularly.
I love all her pretty patterns, but besides this wallpaper, I’m particularly fond of her cheerful lemons!
Read on for my interview with this month’s featured artist and your free wallpapers.

How did you become an artist?
I was always drawing and painting in high school. I ended up going to nursing school because I was told it was the “practical” thing to do. After nursing school,I found myself working in my sketchbooks again! I slowly started taking continuing education watercolor classes. I kept working as a ICU nurse every weekend, and I was eventually able to go to art school full time and finish my degree in painting.
Since graduating art school, I’ve been exhibiting my paintings and working as a freelance surface pattern designer. When I look back, I am really happy that I didn’t give up on my dream to create.
What’s your favorite thing you’ve ever created?
One of most favorite things I have made is my Creative Market shop.

It’s great that you have such a hobby that turned into a professional activity! Quite a few people can graduate from an art school and after that be a talented specialist and teach this to others. I also tried to graduate art school like you, but I didn’t have the talent and patience, sometimes when I need illustrations for my work I just purchase an essay video or photo essay papersowl.com and that’s usually enough for me. The quality is usually good, but… no matter how well the author does, I always feel that I would like to do something differently. Sometimes I regret that I stopped developing my skills and drawing my pictures.
I am very impressed with your writing totosite I couldn’t think of this, but it’s amazing! I wrote several posts similar to this one, but please come and see!
