personalized wall art featuring my "Happy Place" illustration

"happy place"

i was asked to create an illustration
with a children's room in mind.
so, i reflected on my own room as a child.
i remembered those times when i couldn't fall asleep
and i would stare endlessly at the wallpaper that decorated my room.
i was amazed at all the tiny details.

so, with that in mind i placed lots of details in this illustration.
naturally it developed into a piece all about being a kid at the cottage
and playing with my cousins.
oh the adventures we had!

a few close ups!

this is also available as a personalized print.
it would make a wonderful baby gift or keepsake for a child.

you may find both the original and the personalized prints
in my etsy shop.
