You have just journeyed from Dublin, Ireland and viewed the fabulous work if Gillian Hollingsworth.
My name is Karen Swartz Harris and welcome to -ize on design in Akron, OH, U.S.A. I decided to approach this challenge by going back to my roots because in order to truly evaluate where we are going, we have to take a good hard look at how we got to this point. I am an architect by training and, when I learned about our theme of “flight”, I decided to approach the challenge from a different perspective…from above.
My aesthetic is very architectural, modern, clean and detailed, yet organic in nature, using mostly hand drawn elements. It is my dream to build a lifestyle brand around my unique, graphic styling. I have secured some fabulous licensing partners in the home interiors space this past year and I am looking to develop similar partnerships in 2013. It’s my passion to infuse sophisticated styling into objects and spaces, while at the same time injecting a little fun!
I call my collection “Looking Up” – looking up at all of the infinite possibilities where the sky is the limit!
My anchor pattern/illustration is titled “Bird’s Eye View”. I feel a new year is a perfect opportunity to step back, look at the bigger picture, establish goals and plan for what’s next.
Up next…the artistic styling of Piia Põdersalu, who is originally from Estonia, but now resides in Israel. Enjoy!
