{Country – A new print featured at Little Collector}

Friends, I am so excited to announce that I’ve got two new fine art, limited edition prints at Little Collector! They are entitled Country (pictured above) and City (pictured below). Little Collector specializes in limited edition fine art for kids, and I’m so happy to have joined their ranks. (PS: It’s also okay if you are a grown up without kids and you want to buy from them!)

Land of Nod :: Twelve Days of Christmas Ornaments

12/12/12

I’m so honored to have my new 12 Days of Christmas Ornaments (and an interview) featured on The Land of Nod’s blog today! The Land of Nod is a company I’ve worked with for a few years, and they are known for working with independent artists and designers. Last year, they asked me to design 12 ornaments based on the 12 Days of Christmas, and I jumped at the chance. The final designs for nine of the ornaments are below. You can order the ornaments here. Each ornament is hand-painted by an artisan with my designs making each set unique (they will look slightly different than the original designs you see below).

Enjoy!

A Burst of Sun

04/12/12

I love those rainy days when it (if like magic) stops raining and the sun comes out just when you are doing something outdoors. Today I got up to go swim my laps, and it was pouring rain (hailing, actually). And just when I got onto the pool deck the clouds cleared and the sun came out. They sky remained blue for the entire hour of my swim, and it was so nice.

I love vintage-inspired sun burst imagery, and the painting above is the first in a series of sun bursts that I’ll be making over the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned for more.

Also: thank you for all the love you’ve given me about the opening of my new shop yesterday! I haven’t had a chance to thank everyone individually who posted/tweeted/FB’d about it. It was heartfelt. Thank you.

Happy Monday

12/05/11

A couple of years ago I started creating kid-friendly characters in my artwork. It began with the owl you see above (and a bird, not pictured here). And then this past year I added the squirrel and hedgehog. I love creating bright and bold artwork for kids! I’ll share a few more tomorrow.

More Magical Kingdoms

10/27/11

You may recall a couple of weeks ago, I posted some new illustration work I’d done for the children’s market. Here are a few more pieces in that series. Both are available for license through my agency. They are made from gouache + vintage paper (one of my favorite combinations, incidentally). Enjoy.

Magical Kingdoms

10/06/11

One of my favorite ways to spend the afternoon is making drawings inspired by the odd combination of medieval villages and mid-century style illustration. These are all drawn on vintage paper with gouache and ink. You can see more of my children’s themed artwork {including more from this series} in my online portfolio.
