I’ve got a real treat for all of you! I am an artist and designer, so one of my favorite hobbies is to collect art everywhere I go; from other countries, from fellow students; anywhere I can (when it’s good). I have cases of artwork that are all unique, colorful, and show such talent. Instead of presents for my birthday and Christmas, I usually ask for handmade cards and artwork from friends, and you’d be surprised at the amazing, unique art my friends can make. I honestly do this because it’s amazing to receive sculptures, pictures, drawings, paintings, etc., from people you know and love.
So I find myself at art shows and galleries very often (at least once a month) and I happened upon an artist I really loved. She is also a fellow Aggie from Utah State, where I studied. What are the odds? AND her artwork is so amazing! I love the animal prints she creates, but instead of boring wildlife I’ve become accustomed to, she creates her pictures with bright, fun colors most people would not expect. Some are made with bright neon colors and others are mellow but still beautiful. All are professional and I can see them anywhere from in baby rooms to professional offices, to studios or put up on a friend’s wall. If you love art or want to spice up some rooms in your house, I definitely suggest this artist.
Some of her work has even been commissioned and painted in Salt Lake city, such as her rainbow giraffe on a city street corner. What’s even better about this artist is that we’re giving away a sample of her artwork: a photo, keychain, and tattoo. I would definitely check out her Etsy, her blog, her website, etc. If you don’t see something you particularly love, she can create a new piece of art just for you. Who wouldn’t love that? AND it’s just in time for Christmas. So visit one of her sites, follow her, and get some amazing artwork if you can! I checked out her Etsy site and wanted literally everything that was there. Not even kidding. So enter our contest and maybe you’ll snag a picture!

Thanks to Jenn Seeley for the products for this post! My opinion is 100% authentic and honest.
