Spotlight on AWEsome! Jade Dumpling Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of the Spotlight on AWEsome interview with Susan of Jade Dumpling!

Where do you find your inspiration to create?
I find my inspiration from all different places. At the moment most of my art is influenced my Asian themes, tropical things - and big bright colors. I read a lot too and love to surf the web and I find so many fun things to use in my art. I love Japanese stickers and use them in some of my collage pendants along with oragmi papers. Up next is going to be a series of large sushi paintings that will incorporate traditional Asian patterns and designs. I am looking forward to getting my brushes out and just experimenting some!

Would you care to share 3 little know facts about yourself?
1. My dream is to move to Maine- hopefully that is where I will be able to open several Jade Dumpling boutiques on the coast

2. I am currently studying the GMAT and hope to start applying for my PhD in communications or business (I haven’t decided yet!) by the end of 2011.

3. I wrote a children’s book and I am going to finish editing it and then illustrate it and hope to get it published- I would like to finish it before I start any other degree program to space my time out a little!

Susan also wants us to know that she is having a Summer Clearance Sale August 1st- 31st!!!

  1. Beautiful Frog! I couldn't get the link to work, but found it in your sold items. I can't wait to see the children's book.

  2. I love Maine. It is next door to me. The coastal areas are so nice. Thanks for part two. Great interview!
