"The Blackberry Factory Wall Art Series," Muse Creative Award winning artworks by independent graphic designer and digital artist, Teresa Cowley.
Independent Graphic Designer Wins 2018 Muse Creative Awards
Victoria BC – March 31, 2018. Out of more than 2,000 submissions from 40 countries, Teresa Cowley has won a gold recognition in the 2018 Muse Creative Awards competition. The winning work entitled The Blackberry Factory Wall Art Series was created by Teresa for her Curioos wall art shop.
Teresa had this to say about her win: “Oh, you have no idea how awesome this feels! To win even once is an absolute honour especially considering the high caliber of work submitted every year. I’m standing shoulder to shoulder with some of the best creative minds in the industry and that’s mind blowing to me considering I haven’t been formally trained in a university or design school. All I had starting out was a mentor who believed in me and my own desire to improve my work by studying the design I saw around me. Now Ican say I’m an award winning designer? Serious, thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.”
