Looking back on 2014

In honor of the (Happy!) New Year, I thought it would be fun to show you a few of my favorite projects from the past year- in this case, some creative baby nurseries. It is always my hope that nursery murals inspire joy and wonder in the little ones that grow up looking at them. It is truly a humbling experience to be invited to take part in this very special time- especially as each one of these nurseries was for the first born!

First off, we have a favorite Peter Rabbit nursery- complete with verses from the story itself.

Next- inspired by a popular Etsy artist, this mommy-to-be wanted an ‘Elephants on Parade’ themed mural for her Capitol Hill residence. SO CUTE!…

Next, these two travel themed nurseries have the same concept behind them, but are distinctively different. Both represent places the couple had traveled to, just painted in very different styles. This first one is a subtle collage mural of famous landmarks that will go above the crib.

Here are some close-ups of the beautiful detail of the Eiffel Tower, and Big Ben in London. The other landmarks depicted include the Coliseum in Rome, one of the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx in Egypt and the Parthenon in Athens, Greece.

Lastly, this nursery takes the same idea of travel, but I created a whimsical mural that spans the world- from New York to Napa to London, Paris, South Africa, Jordan, Israel- finally finishing up in DC- where the new life will begin his or her journey.

Now I just want to pack my bags and go on an adventure!… but lucky for you, I’m here with paintbrush in hand waiting to do the next great project!…. Wishing you all a happy, healthy 2015!
