What's Your Art? // Bekka Palmer

posted on: November 06, 2011

While in New York, I was lucky to meet the lovely Bekka Palmer at the Swissmiss/Tattly/Studiomates headquarters (she is interning for Tattly). This girl is all kinds of creative! I couldn't wait to feature her in this series. Be sure to check out her blog and keep up with her on Twitter. Enjoy!

1. What's your art?
My art is making things. I make anything from websites, to event design, to crafts and clothing.

2. What brought you to New York from San Diego and what's your favorite thing about New York so far?
I've always had a strong desire to move to New York and after my last visit I just bit the bullet and made the move. I was lucky enough to have savings and sell my car which made it a lost easier to come here without a job. My favorite thing about New York is watching the people here, New Yorkers are a fantastic bunch despite the stereotype that they are cold and always busy.

3. What keeps you going?
Besides massive volumes of coffee, the internet and blog/twitter community keeps me going. All of my internet friends are doing wonderful and beautiful things everyday and I just want to create things that enrich that community as well. 

Thank you so much, Bekka

  9. Although we miss Bekka on this side of the coast, I believe that she couldn't be in better hands over there working with the Swiss Miss! I love Bekka so much, she's so genuine, fun, smart, and ust a beautiful person. She has a quiet confidence about her that I love and an amazing sense of humor. These photos capture her perfectly!
