Farm squares

I love animals. The variety of them, the funny noises they make, their personalities. This is a print I made remembering my grandpa’s farm. He had tractors that my brothers & I loved to drive across the field, a little pond to fish, a big garden & lots of furry friends.

What's popping?

I’m working on some new florals for my collection of prints I take to shows. This one is an oldie but a goody. I love texture & color so I take that approach a lot. That said I’m trying some more graphic florals like the one I’ve attached below.

With Easter so early this year it seems like it
snuck up on us. The little surprises are starting to pop up from the ground. I always love that bright green color against the brown dirt. Hope everyone has a great Easter & makes a little time to stop & smell the lilacs. I know some egg decorating is on my agenda.

All Creatures Great & Small a collection I designed for
The Land of Nod. This was a fun one! Like all the bedding
collections I work on for them I make a fabric sample to
scale. Lots of work & even more fun. They're great to work
with as often times (as shown here) I not only get to design
the bedding but the rugs, decorative pillows & curtains
the whole shabang!

Also, for The Land of Nod this gang of hand-puppets.
I love this photo of them all lined up. Reminds me a
bit of the school photo. I'm always amazed what a
terrific job they're able to do with the samples I make
to the final product sold. (A little Twilight Zone like)

Welcome Spring!

In honor of Spring and also being a Mommy I illustrated a little tribute. While being pregnant was one of the strangest things I’ve ever experienced it was by far also the most magical. So to all those Mom’s & lovers of Spring this one is for you.

So...... I couldn’t resist making a picture of some of our favorite activities to enjoy with our son. Exploring all these things with fresh new eyes is so much fun!
