HOLIDAY CARD PROJECT
I started making holiday cards in 2006 - my last year of classes for my MA in Visual Culture: Costume Studies at NYU. It was a way to reach out to friends and colleagues and share some creative expression. Here are some of the most popular designs!
Printed on thick hand-cut paper. Meant to be like a postcard that would be a keepsake. The first card I made to start off the yearly series. This was during my MA in Visual Culture at NYU, and I was struck by the nice weather and gorgeous views on a trip back to San Diego - View over San Diego Bay with sailboats.
Still my most popular card! The year after I finished my MA in Visual Culture: Costume Studies at NYU and had my first real fashion job in NYC. The most beautiful parts of a vintage corset could often be found inside! I have heard from people that they still have this card!

This year I designed a postcard! I guess I should have mentioned on the back that the photos were mine - I had a lot of people asking if these were from a professional source - well yes, my own artistic viewpoint!
These images are from a trip around France and Switzerland. This was the same year I re-launched my website and you may notice that the top image on the postcard is the image on the homepage of this site.
