This Monday I am musing about the very talented Misha Zadeh Graham. She is so fantastic and such an inspiration that I named one of our re-souL shoes after her. If the name sounds vaguely familiar, it might be because I had already introduced her to you in a past post here.
For those who may not know her, Misha runs a studio called Turquoise Creative. She designs and sells fine paper art and stationery. She also happens to be a very gifted illustrator and artist as well. This Saturday we will be featuring Misha at this months Ballard Artwalk. Her collection features mixed-media cut-paper artwork made from her own etchings and monoprints –some with additional drawing and painting layered over the newly composed art. They are vibrant in color and texture which bring a rich depth to her clean and modern lines.
Misha made her first greeting card at age 4, magic markers and imagination in hand. Her parents, both architects, encouraged Misha’s love for creating beautiful objects. She followed her passion to the University of Washington, earning a double degree in Graphic Design and Interdisciplinary Visual Art. When not working on commercial design for clients, you can find her cutting away, giving new life to her formerly discarded original prints.
Please stop by re-souL Saturday, June 14th from 6-9pm. Come meet Misha (and her namesake) and have a glass of wine. We would love to see you!
