A while back I did a post about entering the Lilla Rogers Studio Global Talent Search. The first round challenge was to create a piece of art with the theme "terrariums". It could be in any medium, style, color and composition. I immediately knew that I wanted to do a desert themed terrarium. I love the desert and the variety of shapes, textures, colors and animals you can find there. This past year I went to Joshua Tree for the first time and have been obsessed with it ever since.
999 people entered the contest and 50 were selected for the next round. I was super inspired and in awe of all of the submissions. There are so many amazingly talented artists out there! You can check out all of the entries here. I did not move on to the next round, but participating in the contest did inspire me to work on a collection based around the desert landscape. I can't wait to share it with you soon.
