It’s that time of year again! Spring has sprung, my daughter is turning 6, Mother’s day was grand and Surtex is NEXT WEEK! I’m heading to NYC to show off my art, connect with manufacturers and mingle with other artists. I’ll be in booth 350 under the title Designs of Design along with Laura Kelly.

CASTLE ROCK, COLORADO (May 13, 2013) for the second consecutive year, Colorado artist, Jen Goode, is taking her art on the road to continue her mission to “Inspire Creativity” in front of an international audience. She is exhibiting at SURTEX in New York City from May 19-21, 2013 and will be showcasing her whimsical illustrations and creative design at this year’s premier art licensing event. Goode has been making a name for herself as a creative McGuyver, sharing her DIY crafting ideas and techniques as she incorporates her own doodly illustrations.

“I literally work in the middle of my kitchen where I can see and interact with my family all day long. My daily life is my inspiration and my art is a reflection of the funny little moments I encounter every day” Goode says. “Translating these moments into colorful art pieces others can see is what I love most about what I do. I’m motivated by the idea that if I share my quirky little view of the world, I might inspire creativity in someone else.”
