Bridgette's Blog - Wine Label Design
wine labels for blog.jpg

As many of you already know I was a graphic design major until the middle of my junior year at California College of the Arts. The skills I learned at that time in my life enable me to create graphics and products with my floral paintings. I have been working with a wine marketing and distribution company called Merchant23. Together we created a line of wine labels featuring my artwork. We are currently in the final design stages of the project. Fingers crossed – I hope to see some of these on actual bottles soon!

Bridgette's Blog - Mural Mock Ups

Another one of my goals is to start creating murals. I made three mock-ups using elements found in my fine art paintings. I have submitted these to a company called Beautify Earth in LA. Beautify Earth helps artists get mural commissions. I am open to creating one of these in the Bay Area as well. If you are reading this and know of a wall in need of some public art please let me know!

Bridgette's Blog - Pattern Making Part II

One of my goals is to create and license patterns and designs. I have been working on creating patterns derived from my paintings. I hope to participate in NYNOW or Surtex, where I can market and sell my products. The patterns pictured here are available for licensing. I'm thinking these patterns would be nice on a pillow or quilt!

Bridgette's Blog - Anthropologie Catalog

It has been a blast seeing my print “Thank You” hanging on the walls at various Anthropologie stores! Artfully Walls, a company I collaborate with, recently released the print. In the most recent Anthro Home Decor magazine my print was featured twice. If you are interested in purchasing “Thank You,” Click Here.

Bridgette's Blog - Wedding Table Number Designs

One of my childhood friends recently got married. She asked me to design the table numbers and name cards for her wedding reception. Together we designed and utilized three different floral graphics. The bright floral graphics added a pop of color to the green and white centerpieces. Collaborating with my friend and celebrating with her on her big day was fantastic!

Bridgette's Blog - Pattern Making

Throughout the remainder of this year I am going to focus on designing patterns using my floral forms. My goal is to create patterns that translate well into graphics for fabrics. Eventually I would like to create a line of textiles that can be used for both clothing and home decor.

Bridgette's Blog - Oh Joy! Feature

 

One of my favorite accounts to follow on Instagram is Oh Joy! The company is owned by the cutest mom of two. Oh Joy’s aesthetic is bright and bold much like my paintings. They are located in Silverlake, CA., not too far from my West Hollywood studio. I reached out to Oh Joy’s team to see if I could gift them two of my floral paintings. They said, “yes!” It was such a treat for me to see their workspace and ultimately see the paintings I gave them in their social media content!
