My passion is creating unexpected fun & functional art + designs! After 20+ years it continues to grow. Finding inspiration everywhere I choose to create vibrantly colorful art + designs. Everything starts at my sketch pad then are hand drawn and painted, collaged or made into mixed medium. Original art can be created into patterns for surface designs and my graphics experience comes in handy for everything I do. Each piece embodies a creative, positive spirit filled with unexpected charm and a sparkle of sophisticated whimsy.
Once I have the original it is re-created into note cards, matted prints, art panels, canvas and other creative gifts. Every piece is carefully embellished and assembled & packaged in our studio. I am proud to say all our products are made in the USA. Our studio recycles everything possible. Focusing on recycled and eco friendly materials, we continue to add “green” elements in as many products possible.
When not in the studio I enjoy time with my husband, three great kids and our dog Wrigley. Usually he is by my side while I work. A true lover of laughter, I can often be found with friends and family enjoying a glass of something fun.
My wish is that my work inspires your heart to smile. ~ Darla
