About Me

My photo
All I know to be is doing what I love, and what I love to do is art. From graphic design to photography to fine art, I love to do it all. My experiences as a student has taught me many ways to create better design as well as more expressive art. From learning the intricacies of Adobe Creative Suite to the delicacies of letterpress and silk screen printing, I find myself to be a more well-rounded, ambitious, and creative individual. With all of this at my disposal, there is no limit to what I can create.

Postage Stamp Project

This is a stamp sheet that I designed for the San Francisco Aids Foundation as a project for one of my classes. Each individual stamp features a person of significance that fell victim to the epidemic of AIDS. Instead of using portraits, I wanted to show the viewer who these people were with one glance at the pictures and a small descriptor. I kept everything black and white so to emphasize the red of the ribbon and remind people that there are many who have succumbed to such a disease and that with the purchase of these stamps, they are helping to fund research for a cure. This project proved challenging because of the extremely small space allotted to design something legible and aesthetically pleasing.


  1. Hi Natasha.

    I didn't see an e-mail address on your site, so I thought I'd contact you this way.

    I'm the webmaster of AIDS on Stamps (www.aidsonstamps.com). I was surfing the web and ran across the stamp sheet you designed for the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

    My website is recording how the AIDS epidemic is reflected on stamps from around the world. Mostly we look at postage from authorized postal services, but we do have some areas of the site dedicated to tracking various types of personal art -- local posts, personalized stamps, cinderella stamps, etc.

    Your stamp sheet didn't quite fit into any of those categories, so I have created a new page for "art stamps". Your stamp will be the first to appear on this page.

    So I am writing to ask permission to reprint the .jpg images of your stamps on my website. The page will look like this...


    ... when it goes live. Currently, you and I are the only ones who know this URL, and I have not connected it to the rest of my website pending your approval.

    If you could e-mail me back with your thoughts at sdlorimor@comcast.net I would be most grateful. I will, of course, immediately remove your work from the website upon request.

    Thanks for your time and attention.


  2. Oops, thought you'd have to approve that message before it went live. Well, at least I'm trying to get permission. But for now, only you, myself, and readers of this page know about the art.htm page on my website.

    Let me know if you have any problems with me reproducing your art.
