Happy New Year to you all! I hope you have a fun and safe New Year's Eve and Day. Speaking of "New" I have a new drawing to show you! My Croatian Girl Matryoshka. I've had two kind requests for a Croatian Matryoshka and one was even so kind as to send me a link to what she had in mind— a Croatian Folk Dancer! This was really allot of fun. Something about red and white I just love, maybe it is the valentine connection. I hope she surpasses their expectations and I hope you love her too! :)

Afghan Girl Matryoshka

Afghan Girl Matryoshka

Happy Holidays to you all! We are enjoying (a very unusual for the southern US) white Christmas weekend here. I hope wherever you are, you are cozy. I have a new illustration to show you, my Afghan Girl Matryoshka! Someone was nice enough to suggest her. For the clothing she suggested bold colors and tiny circle mirrors. I also added gold coin fringe which I saw in some of my research. I hope you like her! :)

Happy Holidays!

Holiday items in my shop! :)
Hello everyone! I hope you and your loved ones are well and enjoying this holiday season! Above is a compilation of a few of my snowy, holiday, gift ideas from various sections of my shop:

Books & Zines

I am hoping to have a chance to draw this week. You all have given me several suggestions for matryoshka- Afghan, Croatian, and Irish. If I have forgotten one that you would like me to draw please remind me. I am sticking with traditional cultural themes but also have an American Women series that I will be adding American women from different eras. If you have any suggestions for any of those I would love to hear them. Thank you for your support and I wish you and your families and friends a wonderful holiday season! :)
