Excerpt from fastcodesign.com:

"Over the past decade, Canadian graphic artist Marian Bantjes has taken the contemporary design world by storm with her rich, labor-intensive ornamentation. Bantjes began her career as commercial designer, yet famously eschewed corporate gigs in favor of self-initiated works, calling herself a "lapsed graphic designer." She recently spoke at TED about this transition, and her devotion to creating meaningful, beautiful work that pleases both herself and her clients."
