Branching Out

This past weekend, I officially branched out my shop! To my adorable handprinted baby clothes I’m adding fantastic handprinted infant carseat canopies!

I have lots of ideas, but to start things off I created a Greek Fret pattern and printed it in baby blue on a lovely green fabric.On the outside it may seem unassuming, but on the inside there is an adorable array of colors, patchworked together.I used all upcycled and repurposed fabrics to make this canopy.  In my searching through the little shops around Chicago, I found some really great patterns! These will dazzle your little one’s eyes!

Check it out today!

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
