Hello! My name is Carolyn Bouchard, and I love sewing and graphic design. I have the best husband and 2 awesome sons. I quit my full time job as an Art Director in the beginning of 2016 when my 1st was born, and have been home with them since. ⠀
I take on as much freelance design work as I can, and would really love to find some companies whose style would be a good fit for my hand embroidered illustration and lettering. Feel free to reach out or recommend me!⠀
A little more about me:⠀
I love making art, and tend to get lost in production. My favorite thing is finding an interesting way to make something look unique and beautiful. Craft is important to me.
Much of my work indirectly reflects my being a stay at home mom because, honestly, that’s a lot of what my life is right now, and I’m just going with it. It was a huge, scary shift (especially as an older mom that worked for 10+ years previously), and although there are trade offs, I love it. I think it has value that's overlooked, just as anything difficult to put a $ value on tends to be. I plan on making work in the future that explores the trade offs women have to make, and needlework is the perfect medium for doing so, which is probably one of the reasons that I love it so much.⠀
Thank you for looking!
