Mike Matas nominated designer and illustrator Sharon Matas who is also his partner:

Sharon and I first met when we were working at Apple. I walked into a meeting where she was presenting ideas for a new project we were working on. Holding up little index cards she explained her colored pencil sketches. There is a special quality to Sharon’s work that is hard to put my finger on. When she draws her hand is calm and steady, moving without hesitation. It’s just natural and effortless. There's a charming quality that comes through, in even her most simple sketches, that feels like a very authentic reflection of her personality.  Looking at her drawings you can get a real sense of who she is and how she sees the world. As my partner in creative work and in daily life she is a great source of inspiration.
