Swallowfield

If I could fold up Jen Judd-McGee of Swallowfield and put her in my pocket so I could take her and her astounding drawing/design/collage talent with me wherever I went, I would. But since I can't, I'll have to settle for hanging her bold, modern prints all over my home:

There's the punchy red and blue piece that hangs on our kitchen bulletin board (above a National Parks postcard series from the WPA Federal Art Project that I became obsessed with over the past couple years),

and then there are these two drawings-over-text that adorn our dining room wall,

and finally two of the happiest, brightest prints ever, which have made their way through several spots in our home now, as I just can't seem to commit their cheeriness to one permanent place.

Visit Jen's blog and her esty shop, since the pocket thing is just not an option. The week of blove has begun...

just read your comment on my blog and had to pop by to personally say thank you. what a lovely comment to get. i was feeling sorry for myself with this damn migraine and it's been hard to be on the computer (my only contact with the world most days) so getting such nice comments as yours always makes my day.

i'm loving all the art you've got at home, especially the two bright ones on the bottom there, they're just burtsting with joy... like your creamy tulip!

and speaking of love - OMG your resin oval necklace, yummy!!! I love that it's big, but still delicate. i have a thing about holes, a big theme in my college work... stones with holes, bellies with holes, fabric with holes...so your resin oval just jumped of the screen yelling LOOK AT ME.

P.S. Oh man, if you put her in your pocket, she might cut you with an X-acto knife while making a collage!!! hee hee.

I have seen the swallowfield art back in Maine...just wonderful work! I love the story behind the bright one in your kitchen above the postcards.
And I love those Nat'l Park postcards!
