Winter School 2017 with Make It in Design #glambohorock

Paisley Planet
Phew.... Thank God for Make It in Design Winter School. What a wonderful inspiring refuge for artists! It has been a peaceful respite to be able to take time to create, especially in this swirling storm of politics, and all consuming elder care responsiblities I am dealing with these days. Hmmmmmmm... I take a deep breathe to focus on my creativity and ask each of us to nurture that amazing human element in all of us to create and not destroy. And so it is... Love and light and blessings to all.

How to Change the World: Social Good Summit 2013

Toilets for All_Peg Scharmen Lynch
I  embarked on a MOOC journey in 2013 and enrolled in some online classes on Coursera.org at the suggestion from my oldest daughter, Selah. One class I took was titled "How to Change the World" which connected me to the Social Good Summit 2013 http://admin.mashable.com/sgs-2013/. I highly recommend watching the summit videos. 

At the same time, I had just started learning PS and AI and took my first module with the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design http://makeitindesign.com/design-school/. Thus, I was inspired to make this design after watching a presentation at the Social Good Summit 2013 on the impact of toilets on third world countries.
 
Considering all the opportunity for change that is possible to move this planet forward in a positive direction with digital technology that benefits all human beings, and at the same time we are faced with all the negative endeavors of cyber attacks and wiki leaking all over the place, we must choose what is good. There is no time to waste. We must all pool our creativity to make this planet a healthy place for all of us.

My hope is to contribute to some important causes through selling my artwork. I have a list of causes that inspire me. That is an important goal for me to reach in the near future. And yes I am a passionate person holding it all in and ready to power forward to get s--t done!

Calladiums


These are some of my most favorite plants which is a good thing because my house is set in the woodlands along a creek in the Delaware River Valley and it very shady which these little guys love!
