The Creative Life
I'm Rachel Fontenot, an artist, poet and surface designer who is passionate about color and pattern, poetry, the great outdoors and art history. I also love to crochet and knit, scrapbook and make handmade cards. All of which you will find on this blog! My artwork and patterns are happy, peaceful and full of color as are all the things my happy hands find to create. I'm a native of the colorful and eclectic city of New Orleans where I currently live with my wonderful hubby of 20+ years marriage. Welcome!

I completed my 2012 Sketchbook Project and mailed it to the Brooklyn Art Library yesterday.
The theme of the sketchbook is Encyclopedia of… Pattern Doodles. Since the Sketchbook Project is about process, they suggested we make the book a window into our work….
So that’s what I did.
I keep a doodle-a-day sketchbook (coming soon to a blog near you!) so I wanted the sketchbook to reflect my daily doodle-a-day book. It pretty much does.
Here’s a sampling of the cover and what’s inside… Enjoy!
