{happy} art

4 Comments 16 February 2011

Nidhi Chanani. Kim Johnson. Shelly Kennedy. Three artists with three different approaches but with the same wonderful outcome: Happy art!

Here’s a gallery showing of some of their whimsical work…and you’ll find more on their websites…oh, and they all do custom work too! {happy} viewing!

Nidhi Chanani
Born in Calcutta and raised in suburban California, Nidhi Chanani creates art because it makes her happy, with hopes it can make others happy, too. She currently draws and dreams in San Francisco. She loves salsa and sketches daily. Check out her website, her blog, and her shop.

A Grand Adventure

Kim Johnson
Kim, a graphic designer and illustrator, loves to create! She calls her collection of budget-friendly prints “retro with a twist.” She takes her inspiration from mid-century Scandinavian art, vintage images, and everyday life. Kim’s a busy girl with several lines of eco-friendly products…ekofabric (home decor), photographik (retro prints and pillows), the little green house (vintage finds).

Shelly Kennedy
Mom. Artist. Painter. Business owner…Shelly finds beauty in everyday things and for her, happiness is “drawing, painting and just simply making things.” She opened Drooz Studio as a way to share her art and some of her favorite things. Her stretched canvas pieces by Oopsy Daisy are vibrant, fun and each piece puts forth a positive message. Even better, a portion of Oopsy Daisy’s annual sales are donated to charities that directly assist children. Discover more on the Drooz Studio website and on Shelly’s blog.

Bird Watching: Write Ons!

Comments Off 30 September 2010


We have a fondness for birds (not surprising) and we happily come upon them everywhere! We recently spotted Write On’s–nifty chalkboard vinyl decals from Vinyl Attraction–peel and stick then let your little one write on the walls (staying in the lines, of course : ). They come in a variety of shapes, but bet you can guess our favorites…
