I don’t do a ton of giveaways because it’s difficult for me to find artists and vendors whose work I love so much that I’m willing to endorse them on what is, essentially, one of the few places where I can be completely myself: my blog. But when I stumbled upon the Etsy shop Under Cherry Tree, I knew I had found an artist who crafts the kind of art that I would make myself if I had the skills. Much to the chagrin of the entire art world, my own artistic abilities are limited to nibbling Pop-Tarts into symmetrical rhomboidal masses. I know you are all clamoring for a one-of-a-kind Emily original, but I eat them all before I can even upload an image of them to eBay. So, sorry, but today you’re just going to have to settle for some real artwork by a real artist.
Sylvi is a mother of two who swung open the doors to her Etsy shop when she was on maternity leave. Her love of bright and sunny colors shines through in her pop art-inspired custom designs. I’m a huge fan of
Pop-Tarts pop art myself and we have several Andy Warhol posters around our home. In fact, when C was a baby, we’d get her to sleep by swaying with her in front of our Warhol prints while she gazed at their sharply-contrasting vivid colors.
When I saw how well Sylvi’s designs would go with the bright decor we already have in our home, I knew I had to have one of her pieces for our own. I sent her several photos and she chose the best one to create a custom digital print of C.
I absolutely adore the way it turned out. It represents a special time in her little toddler life, and completely captures her personality in a way that my breakfast pastry sculptures just can’t.
This is a high-quality digital image; I printed both 8″ x 10″s and 5″ x 7″s and both sizes turned out beautifully.
Sylvi’s shop is not limited to her prints and printables (although those are pretty amazing!). She also sells very affordable custom-designed birthday invitations and decorations, wall hangings, and onesies. She will work with you to make sure that your print is exactly what you desire!
