Taste... Find Yours! / by ryan redman

I’m really big into taste... it’s important! What’s also important is who sets the bar. I’m not talking about food in case you’re confused. As a artist (yes I consider myself one) I’ve become very good at copying. I would often devour images of beautifully positioned arrangement sculpted to tickled all our senses. Copying for me was a very useful skill, I’ve freelanced a lot with other designers (A brother gotta pay them bills) but in the midst of all that somewhere along the way I’ve found my own personal style. It was always there, I just needed to develop it. What’s important for any artist I believe is a signature. Something that sets them apart and makes their work identifiable. I say all this to say. Not everyone is going to like what you do, if you do it with excellence and passion and it speaks to your heart and gives you all the feels. Then, you’ve got something. The only one who should be setting any bar or expectations should be yourself. Trust yourself and find what makes you stand out. I don’t know who needs to hear this but once in a while I get the urge to share 😄.

One for The arrangements from The Selma Mansion in Leesburg VA. This is a funny one, literally It took 5 minutes to put this together and it was one of the most liked image I’ve ever posted on my social Media. I typically take my time and curate everything I create. Not with this one, I grabbed whatever I could find and put it together in my hands and stuck it in the vase. I guess you can call it instinctual designing.
