We all know someone or have a loved one with a disability. Below is a great article from AIGA on design, and how to convey accessibility to buildings, transportation, and also about, user-centered museum information graphics. The isotype icons (below) are evolving, along with amazing Apps like BlindWays, providing clues to accessibility where gps fails, and AccessNow, rating the status of restaurants and concert venues etc.
This article has inspired me to think beyond my own small world. I’ll be looking around more to notice how these symbols are used in my city, at events, and utilized in public spaces I’ll be visiting this year. On the lighter side, so maybe, the martini glass should be a beer stein, and the boat should have a side view.

I am a part of a busy team of ladies on Etsy. Once a month, we create a photo collage for each other to help promote our handcrafted items. Our name is SPS, or Strategic Promotion for Success. We are women from across the planet, and even though most of us have never met, we have become online friends. The collage I made below, is a segment of our tight-knit group.
This is a new design with a Native American style inspiration. To visit my Etsy shop, click on the photos of my seed bead bracelets below.

I Hope you valentines day is lovely!
I remember when my parents hired a designer to work on the decor for my bedroom when I was in high school. The curtains and the bed covering were a green and rust paisley pattern. At that time, I was not impressed with the moroccan style motifs. How things change when your taste in decor develops over time. Thanks Mom and Dad for having great taste!
This is a surface design project with a paisley pattern using the pointillism technique. The layering of dots imparts texture and depth. Can’t wait to order the fabric and paper swatches in the pink and the brown to perfect my craft. This is just the beginning of creating graphics for this collection. If you are interested in licensing my designs, please leave me a message through my contact page.

Taking time to smell the roses, and photograph them is not always easy, especially when you have a few minutes in the morning before work. I am a nature lover, so I always get up early to enjoy my morning time. I’ve been known to get distracted by the bumble bees when I’m having my morning coffee. Their buzzing is very busy and non-stop. But, the cardinal is busy too, hopping around in our tomato plants. I smiled when he finally flew to our Rose of Sharon tree, and then I hurried to captured his portrait.
The birds are not visiting as much when we are working, but the bees don’t care.
A busy backyard.
I digress, Time to stop and smell the roses.

I am fired up about making jewelry when I find great gemstones and faceted crystal points. You can find this starfish necklace in my shop on Etsy, at MeyerClarkCreative

As promised, our video from Mackinac Island on July the fourth. It was a very satisfying experience having lunch at the Grand Hotel. The view of the Straits of Mackinac was stunning from the highest point in the cupola, where we enjoyed a tropical cocktail. We always look forward to our next visit, satisfaction guaranteed! In the mean time, we have lots of photos to cherish and post later!
Do you have a favorite vacation memory?

I’ve always had a desire to make stuff by hand. I thoroughly enjoy every process of developing a concept through photographing product vignettes. These are a few of my treasured images. The beaded photos are from when I was around 14 years old. It is very satisfying to look at old photos and remember just how far I’ve come, and feel blessed to be able to satisfy my heart, and create.

I’ve been working on a graphic design project, while doing some research about Hawaiian tiki culture. So you might imagine, the sparkling water on a turquoise ocean, the longest white beach ever, and sipping on a fruity drink with a blue umbrella decoration. Sounds divine. This is the first time I’ve designed a Hawaiian theme, and a pattern for fabric. This fabric will be for sale soon on a website near you, so get your favorite tiki cup out for an inspiration. Details to come.
Please feel free to share or message me with any questions.
Enjoy your Summer!

We’ve traveled over and under the Mackinac bridge in recent years. The exhilarating feeling of going fast under the bridge by boat will stay with me forever, but the images captured while driving over it are definitely grand! More on this subject coming soon.
Where do love to travel to in Michigan?
