    I have always loved stationery and paper goods in general. I grew up in North Carolina where Southern tradition dicatates Thank You notes are a must do and personalized stationery is a must have. But I now live in Utah County where we don’t have any stationery shops, and the best options for stationery are big box stores or the gift section of a few local boutiques. I was having a hard time finding stationery that suited my tastes, even online. That’s when I decided I wanted to learn to design stationery for myself.

    I was very involved in art classes in my early teens so I have a bit of an art background. My husband is a web designer so I already had access to the Adobe Creative Suite on my home computer. I tried to learn how to use Illustrator through some YouTube videos and asking my husband some questions, but I wasn’t making the progress I wanted. I went online to search for classes for Illustrator and found Nicole’s Classes.

    In 2010 I took Illustrator 101 online then Illustrator 102 and the Seamless Patterns class during a weekend event in Salt Lake. I started making stationery for myself and as gifts for others: a set of personalized stationery for myself and for the ladies in my family for mother’s day. I even designed my daughter’s birth announcements. I started getting asked by friends and family members to design baby shower invitations and wedding invitations.

    In September of 2011 I opened my Etsy shop: Winona Gray Design. I love the creative outlet that it provides me and the people I have met through my little business. I have received orders from several different countries such as the UK, South Africa and Spain. I also love that I can make extra money for my family doing something I love without leaving home. I owe so much to Nicole’s Classes and recomend them constantly to friends that want to improve their technology based creative skills.

    Well I am not a student persay. I have been watching the tutorials for free and have grown so much as an artist. I know there is much more still to learn and so I would love the scholarship. I have made a list of everything I need to learn to take my typography art to the level of success and taking a class would be awesome. I will be looking at my schedule this week and register for a class. I do love your free tutorials as they are 2 minutes and so much info..they have really help me! Thank you!
