Artist Profile: Masha D'Yans

Good morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

 I never did make it back here on Friday as you can tell, it was a busy day at school and then we had friends over for cocktails in the evening. Saturday we went to my in-laws for the weekend to house sit and even though a mean migraine landed on my head for two days, I still had a nice time getting away.

I'm here now to show you the artist I discovered at the car wash last week. (My local car wash has the best little gift shop around).

I immediately fell in love with Masha's amazing art which I saw featured on a line of greeting cards. Her work is so whimsical and colorful that I could not stop staring at it.

When I got home, I wanted to learn more about her. She is very well established as an artist, so as the old NBC commercial goes, "if I haven't seen her, she's new to me." (Do you remember that marketing campaign for summer reruns?).

I am very drawn to images of girls on swings for obvious reasons, but I am clearly not the only fan of Masha's work. You can keep up with what's new on her blog. I love the pale grey background she chose because (of course) it makes her art jump off the screen.

I have put these two lovely gals on my desk to remind me of my playful spirit.

If you like her work as much as me, you can shop her cards here, her home decor here and all the rest here.
