About Me

My photo
I am a multifaceted woman, living with intention and passion. I always see the glass as half full (ok, almost always). Currently into: jewelry design, glass beadmaking (aka lampworking), visual journaling, cooking and web design everything. Things that bring me great joy: my family, friends, Scrabble, British period pieces, Shabby Chic, Austin, TX, mini art tiles, autographed cookbooks, chocolate, Chianti, pedicures and beach glass. I don't "do" and/or dig: dishonesty, guilt, intolerance, unkindness, drama and goat cheese (it's a long story, but I love all the other cheeses!) So you now have a teeny tiny little picture of me, with a few warts thrown in. Welcome to my world!

Matthew Carter Research Timeline

Matthew Carter
     In my Typography I class this semester, each student had to pick a typeface designer to research and create a presentation from that research for the rest of the class. I chose Matthew Carter. I spent quite a few days researching his typefaces and reading about his life. He was recently named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow and received what is referred to as a "Genius" grant of $500,000.00, a half million dollars to keep doing what he does so well.
     While doing research for a type project that is also due next week, I came upon a cool website that lets you create timelines, which I used to create one for my presentation on Matthew Carter, how lucky! Just click on the link here if you want to check it out, or make your own timeline, it is free. (This is a class project, I am not being paid for this in any way and the images included are not mine and I do not hold the copyrights for any of them.)
