Knitting time

Just a quick update… I was recently a finalist in The Knitting Guild Association‘s Pattern Design Contest, in the baby clothes category. I’ve been knitting pieces for my new granddaughter, trying out new ideas. Here’s a shrug I created, specially for babies!



I’m happy to announce that my website, www.studiodianthus.com, is up and running! Please feel free to browse my artwork — there areĀ paintings and corresponding digital versions, as well as illustrations created from scratch using programs like Photoshop and Illustrator… take a look!

Pen & Palette

Please take a look at the Winter 2009 issue of Pen & Palette — yes, that’s my illustration on the front cover! I’m also interviewed in this issue — I’m really excited to be included.

Go to the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators for links to current and past issues of the magazine.

This is the start of a New Year and the start of my virtual portfolio, here at studio dianthus.

My name is Jacqui Mehring and I am an artist and designer working in North Carolina. I work in all different mediums and I’ll be showing examples of what I’m working on.
