My Happy Place(s)

Aug 16, 2017

To the Editor:

By trade, I’m an art director at an advertising agency in Morristown, but I spend all my free time practicing my passion for hand lettering. I’m always looking for a new project and usually find inspiration at the beach.

I’ve been coming to LBI my entire life and call it my happy place. My grandma lives in Beach Haven West, so I come down frequently, all year ’round, rain or shine. Throughout the years I’ve rented houses on the Island and crashed with friends or cousins. The places named on my shell art are all of the places I’ve stayed on LBI. Each place is unique, so I wanted to decorate each shell with designs that captured the essence of each town. These towns are part of what makes LBI LBI.

With the best beaches, friendly people and laid-back vibes, there’s no place I rather spend my summers. For more photos of this project and other work I’ve done, check out my Instagram @deirdrethedesigner.
