I am a Mexican graphic designer and artist/printmaker based in New York City. I love textile design, patterns & color and to have fun doing D-I-Y projects. My inspiration comes from everywhere: art, nature, beautiful motifs, travels. I taught blockprinting in NYC at www.makeworkshop.com and I love to teach people to access their creativity and apply it to making things! My work is also represented at ArtfullyWalls http://www.artfullywalls.com/artists/38496/fernanda-franco
