What is your background?
I studied studio art, art history and advertising in college. After spending time abroad studying art in Florence, Italy and sketching my travels I continued to draw using portable materials such as watercolors, small sketchbooks, and pen. High fashion photography, fashion illustration, and expressionist painters largely influence me. Since graduating I have committed to drawing daily and I am constantly exploring new mediums and subjects.
Why the name "Blonde Lasagna"?
Someone once told me my hair looked like lasagna noodles, golden, wavy and a little messy. I LOVED that! What a unique description I thought! So, Blonde Lasagna became my blog name. Then I got attached, and now I identify with it. The name Blonde Lasagna is eccentric, attention grabbing and random. The same words describe my personality. I would definitely turn around if some yelled “Hey Blonde Lasagna!”
Do blondes really have more fun?
I love that saying! But I think it depends on the blonde.
How were you first introduced to Lulu Frost?
I saw Lulu Frost for the first time at J.Crew. Lisa Salzer's jewelry literally stopped me in my tracks. It was so special and different from everything else in the jewelry case. I looked it up on the Internet and have been in love ever since. I draw Lulu Frost because the jewelry has amazing unexpected combinations of colors and textures. I believe when you’re drawing a beautiful subject your drawing will be beautiful.
