This holiday season, we are very excited to welcome a new designer to the site, Splendid Wren Studio! Cameron Uebler, the creative mind behind the trendy designs, debuts her collection of modern photo cards and invitations on FineStationery.com. For any occasion or holiday you find yourself celebrating, there is a piece in the collection for you.
Below, we picked her brain on what drives her creative process and we found out about her love for NYC at Christmastime.
Q : What sparked your interest in the Stationery industry?
A : I love the creative freedom I have with designing stationery. It allows me to truly be an artist. Plus, most invitations and cards are meant for celebrating the joyous occasions in life. It makes me happy knowing I am able to help set the tone for a special event.
Q: What makes your designs stand out from the crowd?
A : I’m not afraid to use color or to be a little playful. I like my work to be eye catching but not over the top, which helps set me apart. Also, my designs are diverse so there is a little something for almost everyone.
Q : Where do you look to find inspiration for your artwork?
A : I like to mix trend with tradition. I read fashion, design, and lifestyle blogs to help keep up on trends but I also have a great appreciation for the timeless beauty of traditional design. Pulling"old" and "new" together is the perfect mix.
Q : What is your favorite Holiday memory?
A : There are so many memories to choose from but one of my recent favorites is when my husband and I took an impromptu trip to New York City around the holidays. We did all of the cliché tourist things like ice skate in Rockefeller Center, check out all of the department store window displays, and of course watch the Rockettes at Radio City. There really is nothing like NYC at Christmastime.
Q : Best gift you ever gave and/or received?
A : I live across the country from my family so anytime I can be with them for the holidays it truly is the best gift.
Q : Favorite Holiday tradition you look forward to all year?
A : One of my very favorite traditions is the Christmas stocking. Anything from candy and soap to stamps and lottery tickets - you never know what kind of fun little surprises Santa will leave for you!
