We are so honored to be able to collaborate with fine artist Kelly Ventura on this beautiful collection. I have long been a fan of Kelly's colorful work, so it was an absolute dream to have her create two custom watercolor prints we would then turn into Wunderkin Co. bows for the adventurous free spirit." />
I would have to say hillside adventuring, an Icelandic palette, woodsy wildflowers and cool waters.
I really love the way that both patterns turned out. No one bow will have the same pattern placement and that feels like a mini work of art to me. If I had to choose, I would say that I have a soft spot for the "Watercolor Blotted Dot Oversized Schoolgirl."
"Playful. Gestural. Unexpected"
I have three boys and they are stuck in an "neon athletic-wear" phase, which is painful for this mama. My newest niece will be arriving in just a few short weeks and I've already stocked up on a few favorites from Briar Handmade, Childhoods Clothing & Mon Petit. She will be well-dressed and oh-so loved.
We love to bike, walk and ski as a family. Some of my fondest childhood memories are climbing trees with my sisters. I am really looking forward to watching my boys find their favorite adventures in the years to come.
@ellenmariebennett - Love her "go get em" entrepreneurial spirit.
@em_henderson - Styling genius & funny personality.
@oldjoy - Honest glimpses of childhood & home.
@karinabania - Amazing California painter.
I would love to see how the year unfolds in terms of new collaborations. It's such an adventure to be able to do what I love everyday and share it with the world on a range of products. This year, I will be traveling overseas to Abu Dhabi. I can't wait to see how that inspires my work later this year!
I normally use a lot of pink in my work. Opera Rose by Winsor & Newton is my go to pigment choice. I also have a great love for Cobalt and a good Mustard|Chartreuse in my palette. Maybe we need a pink collection next! ;)
