Artist Highlight: Elissa Hudson

I am super excited to be representing the very talented artist Elissa Hudson! Not only are her designs filled with happiness and a joy for life, but her personality reflects the same! Elissa's collections are available for fabric, wall art, home decor, and many other categories. Please stop by Pink Light booths 317 and 416 at Surtex to check out Elissa's brand new collections!

Elissa Hudson is an illustrator who completed her M.F.A. in illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia where she was honored with the 2006 Outstanding Achievement Award.

Her book Dogs of the South was selected as one of the top six entries for the Teatrio International Children’s Book Annual and international traveling exhibition. She is the illustrator of the book Mama’s Going to Heaven Soon (Augsburg Fortress 2005) which is now in it’s second printing and has been nominated for several children’s book awards. Elissa's fresh, lively work has been featured on many Hallmark Cards, and in Chesapeake Family Magazine, Hallmark Magazine, Word Up Annapolis Magazine, Cricket Magazine and Names and Numbers publications. Her other freelance projects have included custom invitations and announcements, custom nursery decor, and logo design. The cover she illustrated for Chesapeake Family Magazine (June 2005) received the Gold award from the Parenting Publications of America for Original Illustration. She has been the featured artist at the Illinois Art Week Art Walk, and has displayed work in group and solo exhibitions. Currently she is keeping busy with her ETSY shop and work for Pink Light Design.

Elissa loves design, illustration, and hand lettering. She plans to continue creating work that brings smiles and happy thoughts to her viewers throughout the lifetime of many ink pens!

When asked about the top 5 things that make Elissa happiest, she replied:

1. Time with my wonderful family and friends
2. Starbucks Iced Vanilla Lattes
3. Dark Chocolate
4. My 'job' that I LOVE- (that doesn't feel like a 'job'!)
5. Traveling and researching trends and new styling directions

Big thanks to Elissa for joining the Pink Light team! Here's to much success on seeing her designs on more fabulous products! Here are a few of her unique and beautiful designs, available through Pink Light.

Sweet Treats, Fashion, Yoga, and Dreams!

Starbucks "cake pops"...irresistible! Go for the tiramisu or birthday cake! Yummy!

Free People's latest this loose, comfortable style for Spring!

Hot yoga at Urban Yoga Spa. Oh my! I can't believe it took me a year or so to finally make it to a class! I will be venturing here on a regular basis now! Hot yoga feels so great! Try it!

And dreaming of...going to sleep each night in a bedroom like that a water view I see out the window? Looks like heaven to me....

Have a great weekend...and remember..."In dreaming we catch glimpses of life larger than our own. Let your eyes stay filled with stars and your heart with glimpses of dreams to come true." --Unknown
