It's always fun to see where an order I send out ends up! From Minnesota to Japan to Texas to Australia to California, it gives me endless satisfaction and joy to see my customers and clients enjoying their pieces. So, when my friend Stacy sent this Decor8 link to me, it made me smile. One of my favorite bloggers, Holly Becker, was featuring the lovely home of California designer and blogger Simone Howell and she had included two of my chair prints on her gallery wall. You have to check out Simone's home as well as her prolific body of work on her Gardenhouse site, blog and Etsy shop.


Thanks to Holly Becker of superblog Decor 8 for her post on my Etsy site and my new quote prints. Holly has been an important part of supporting me from the beginning and introducing me to the blogosphere. She is a great, warm person who happens to have a ton of talent! She is known for her keen eye and design prowess and has done so much to support and promote Indie artists and craftspeople. You can check out her post here.

Happy Valentine's Day to all of my readers! Thanks so much for your readership and support - I love blogging and sharing my art with you and being a part of your lives! You have added so much to my life and I am grateful for all of the special people I have come to know through my involvement with Etsy and this blog.

This is a painting I did for Holly Becker of Decor8 design blog. It was featured in a post by her yesterday on her blog. This is a room she designed for the Fall 2007 issue of Adorn Magazine. Holly is a very talented designer and writer who has been a pioneer in the world of design blogs. Her blog is a hip and reliable source for the latest and best. She is also an exceptionally nice person. She was the first to feature my work and has been so incredibly helpful in getting the word out. She has been beyond supportive, as she is to so many indie artists, designers, bloggers and craftspeople out there. Thank you, Holly, for the mention yesterday, and for everything!

Now this piece is available as a print in my Etsy shop. Please contact me at: if you would like a similar painting done of your favorite room.
