Today's image was taken at Vida Pour Tea on State Street near Old Irving Park. Liz McKinnon is holding one of her pen and watercolor paintings on display at Vida Pour Tea. To the left of the artist, you will notice a creatively lettered sign. That is also Liz's artwork. Several businesses hire people to do their lettering and you start to recognize the individual styles. As seen above, Liz combines cursive with print and serif with sans serif fonts. In essence, she does it all!
Liz is one of Greensboro's up and coming artists and we're sure we'll be seeing more of her. For now, you can see her artwork and follow her blog, here. Or, you can head to Vida Pour Tea to see her other great pieces. Reminiscent of illustrations in fairy tales, Liz's art has a lot of Russian imagery, bold colors and exotic animals. Liz has recently moved to Greensboro and loves it here. She sees Greensboro as being large enough to support artists, but not too big to be overwhelming. Indeed, Greensboro is a great place to call home and we're Heart Shine Studio is here!
