Studio-BDR-WatercolorSo I have some big news that I have been wanting to share, but wanted to wait until it was actually official to spill the beans, but as of last week my visa got approved and I’m moving to London in two (!!!) weeks! Everything has been a complete whirlwind these past couple weeks, but before I get into that let me start from the beginning.

I had toyed with the idea of going to graduate school on and off since before I even left college. I always thought that it was something that I wanted to pursue, but didn’t want to commit to two or three more years of study. I moved back to California and landed a great job that I loved and pushed aside any ideas of going back to school until randomly I came across several amazing, accelerated year-long programs at prestigious art schools in the UK and thought why not? So I applied and shortly after I found out I had been accepted to one of the best and most competitive Art Institutes and Master’s Programs in England…And you can’t just turn down an opportunity like that. A lot of really difficult decisions had to be made after I got my acceptance letter, but with the bad comes the good. I am 100% sure that I am making the absolute best decision for me and cannot wait to embark on this amazing adventure. I’ll be posting on here as much as possible about my adventures in London and everywhere I travel. Cheers to new adventures in London!

Also, I wanted to give a little shout out to my oh-so-talented friend Brittany of Studio BDR for making me the sweet watercolor print of all the places I’ve lived (Dallas, NYC, Newport Beach, and London). It was such a thoughtful going away gift and I can’t wait to frame it for my new place in London! But for real, this girl is such a talented and creative graphic designer and makes anything you might want or need from wedding invitations to business cards (even amazing water color prints of cacti). She’s currently working on getting her site up and running, but for now follow her on Instagram @StudioBDR for contact information and to see more of her amazing work!
