We are celebrating
Artist Appreciation Month!
Early on as a little girl, art was an integral and innate part of my life. I remember how much I loved having paper, pencils and crayons with me at all times. Used to draw tiny doodles on my notebook margins and little scraps of papers. Always loved drawing little children, nature (especially flowers) and cute critters.
These illustrators were of great influence and inspiration in my childhood. I discovered their art while visiting my local stationery store when I was in elementary school and I remember saving some of my allowance money to buy some greeting cards. I used to tape the greeting cards on my bedroom wall next to my desk and spend countless hours looking at the beautiful artwork.

These two artists became great trendsetters and mentors for many artists like me. I loved their use of color, intricate design and patterns in their works. Not only you found their work in stationery products but also collectable items, home decor and textiles. They have welcomed thousands of fans around the world and continue to create more art for all of us love! Still today, I LOVE their work!
