Hi, I'm Louise, a UK based blogger, print designer & illustrator. I get excited about colour, have a passion for print, surface pattern design and adore beautiful illustration, and it's that enthusiasm that spurred the beginning of this blog back in 2010. Love Print Studio is my little piece of blog land an inspirational space that celebrates all things design!
The next designer to be featured in Creative Quarters is Dora Cuenca.
Dora Cuenca is a Costa Rican illustrator, muralist & print designer currently based in New Jersey.
She is a graphic designer by trade but when she moved to the states she discovered surface design, and she fell in love.
She has spent years experimenting and growing her artistic voice, while raising three little ones. Needles to say motherhood and it’s many aspects are woven into her creative process.
Drawing & painting provide her with time for reflection as well as act as a release from the day to day.
With reflection comes gratitude/joy and with releasing comes empowerment.
Her narrative illustrations and playful patterns cultivate these emotions, with the use of watercolours, gouache, pens, digital techniques and always a dose of tropical vibes from her native Costa Rica.
Surface design also opened the door for mural commissions.
She has painted murals for Mission Taqueria, Freedom Apothecary in Philadelphia and has been commissioned for a couple of other exciting mural projects this summer.
She’s currently working on some personal projects, developing a fabric collection and art prints that will be available online soon.
Dora is available for custom murals and illustrations and would love to connect with other creatives or brands for commissions or collaborations.
