Knowing how much I would love her work, a friend recently introduced me to local artist Margery Niblock. (You can read a bit about her career here.) Her work is quite appealing to me, particularly the child oriented pieces-- they seem to so simply and beautifully capture an innocence of childhood that I know we all want for our children. A mother herself, Margery quite clearly was inspired by her son (I adore this piece The Drawlings of her napping artist child!), which I can certainly identify with.
It took me so long to decide on which prints to order--I love them all--but in the end chose these two above, and am so pleased with them. It's been a treat to look at all of this work, and to have a few exchanges with Margery herself. She's parting with many of her prints right now, through Ebay, and they're all quite lovely, and very reasonably priced. You can check them out here.
