Do you remember reading Beatrix Potter books as a child - or even adult - and falling in love with her simple illustrations? I still comb through the books from time to time to enjoy the artwork and gain some inspiration. When I found Sam Georgieff's illustrations, I found the modern-day Potter.
Sam paints under the Etsy shop, "Poor Dog Farm," also named after his Southern Pennsylvania farm and studio. I love his attention to reality while maintaining the whimsy of every child's imagination.
