Richmond, VA (PRWEB) March 29, 2008
The artistry of Karen Bullard, which became popular in her works for karen cole paper, LLC, has opened a licensing division called karen cole design. Artist Karen Bullard is all about vibrant saturated color and charming imagery. In 2004, she utilized her background in interior design and painting to start karen cole paper, a successful stationery company that focuses on elegant note cards, invitations, announcements and more. With the success of her hand-crafted designs in stores and online, Karen began to license her artwork in 2007, with her official debut scheduled for the Licensing Expo in New York City, June of 2008.
Bullard creates clean graphics and stylized designs, as well as playful and sweet iconic collections, that will delight customers for years to come. Her eye-catching artwork is full of saturated hues and her trademark colored pencil illustrations appeal to a wide audience and compliment a range of product lines.
Having built an enviable track-record and stellar reputation with her stationery and invitations, she is looking for established licensees to create home decor, gift and other stationery items -- from greeting cards and gift wrap, to tabletop and giftware, plus fabrics and wall coverings. Karen says, "I am really enjoying the process of creating my designs for so many types of new products. And I can't wait to meet the manufacturers who can bring the designs to life."
Bullard is a very collaborative designer and hopes to work closely with her licensee's production departments to design the final product. She emphasizes, "My computer skills and design experience will certainly make the process easier for the manufacturer."
Karen currently lives in Virginia with her husband, their children, and a very energetic yellow lab, all of who provides constant entertainment and inspiration.
