I Heart My Ant-ie!

I get my inspiration for these onesies from all sorts of places: fences along the El tracks, things I see when I’m out and about in Chicago, or ideas that friends throw out that set my mind churning.

My newest design is a perfect example of things created because of a friend’s suggestion: “You need to start making a cute designs (so when my siblings or like my best friends start having children) that says I love my Ant…ie. With like a little Ant. Because that would be fun.”

As I am an aunt myself and know what it is to search around for aunt themed clothing, her suggestion rang true to me (plus it cracked me up) and I was immediately enthused about making her suggestion a reality!

Here is the final result:

I love it!

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?
