Well, it's been little over a year since our move to Minnesota, and we have found ourselves on the road again. The journey has come full circle and we have landed in the Chicagoland area! After growing up in the southwest suburbs and living in the Windy City of Chicago for almost 10 years, I am very excited to move back.
It has taken a little while, but my studio is finally set up and this time around -- I'm sharing it with my little protege! What better way to get inspired to do children's art by sharing my creative space with my own kiddo's crafty corner.
I am also happy to report I've been busily working on that Nursery/Children's Art line, finding inspiration everywhere. I'm hoping to have a new shop on ETSY featuring my work and perhaps a few other venues - plus a NAME! It seems to be one of the most challenging parts of the process.
One of my favorite pieces I've been able to do is for another new little baby who entered our world this May... Miss Amelia. I had done a commission years ago for little Amelia's daddy of his wonderful Yellow Lab. So for her nursury I wanted to also represent the "dog-love" of her mommy's life - a beautiful Ridgeback named Zeke. It seems both Mama, Daddy, and Baby are happy with their new art!
