I’m SO excited about today’s giveaway. Have you heard of Loxly Hollow?
Elisabeth, the artist and owner, is immensely talented. I first saw was introduced to her work by Ashley Stock from Little Miss Momma and I just fell. in. love. Here’s a little more about Elisabeth:
What do you love most about your work?
I love that it’s not a routine; my work lets me take flights into fancy. It’s a job that requires me to have fun and be a kid again, to sit in the children section at Barnes and Nobles and pour over kids books, and one that allows me to go to Disneyland on the pretext of getting ideas for work. Oh, and I love how I can be doing work anywhere; as long as I have a not too stubby pencil and a napkin, I can be doing my work at the beach, in the car, or wherever.
Where did you learn?
My Mum taught myself and my siblings at home, and all that I know about art has come from my Mum. She would supply us with countless books and have us sketch and paint from them. I think my style has evolved from a mixture of Beatrix Potter, Ernest Shepherd, and Hillary Knight.
Why did you start?
I always wanted to write books and illustrate, and luckily this job is bringing me closer to that goal. Illustrating allows me to have a living as well as have enormous fun while doing it!
I love art like this, so whimsical and young. It reminds me of reading children’s books, of the innocence and wonder in little kids, that I wish I still had. Every picture conjures up a different memory for me, and I would seriously buy every print she has. I have three of hers already and I’m always wanting more. She did this custom piece for me, based on the description of my two boys that I gave her. And I just love it to death. It so reminds me of them (when they are happily playing rather than fighting and crying) and it will remain one of my prized possessions.
I feel like she does such a great job of capturing the very essence of childhood, love, and friendship. I got this picture for my best friend, since it reminded me so much of us when we were that age (best friends since I was three!) inseparable.
She calls these nursery prints, but I would put them all over my house. That’s how much I love them.
And ps, she is very frequently having a ‘Buy 2 Get 1 Free’ sale in her shop. Go buy a few as gifts for Christmas or birthdays or whatever–what a special gift!
I have recently purchased these two…
