Annie Wilkinson

decor8 reader Raissa sent in a tip about an artist she loves, she thinks you'll enjoy knowing about her as well. The artist is Canadian Annie Wilkinson. To directly quote from Annie's bio, "Annie Wilkinson is the youngest of 8 children, the mother of two, up too many times in the middle of the night, in a couple of bands, an illustrator and designer, and like every good Canadian girl, loves to play ice hockey." Sounds like the ultimate modern mom!

At first glance, I must say I agree with Raissa, Annie is quite a talent. Her work is magical, the colors are captivating, some of the head shapes and neck lengths are quirky but interesting, and I enjoy her range of characters and love the clothes you "dresses" them in (the blue haired girl almost seems to be wearing a Uli dress). You can purchase some of her art over at her etsy store, in case you'd like to get your hands on it for your own home. I know I do! psst: Annie's got a blog, too. Check it out!

Thanks for the tip, Raissa!
