Friday Feature

Whew! It’s been a little nutty over on this end the last few weeks. I had some family emergencies to attend (a funeral and a surgery), plus some technical difficulties last week. But I’ve survived and we are back on schedule with our Friday Feature for this week!

First up is this awesome and terribly adorable print, Hold On Mr. Squirrel, from the shop of maggieshurley. I’m always drawn to artwork that incorporates umbrellas; there’s just something magical about overcast/rainy days. Plus, I love the use of watercolors here, the swirling clouds in the background and the fantastic shading of the fur.. it’s such a great painting! Be sure to go and check out the other wonderful works of art in this shop!

And, next, is this beautiful Book Organizer from the shop: Et’s Place. I don’t think a person can have too many books, but being organized (and able to find the one you’re looking for) is paramount! Here is a perfect solution. I love that it’s vintage – imagine the stories it could tell! And the shabby chic, distressed white color is a fantastic look. There are so many great items in this shop, be sure to go over and see!

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?
