I have been blessed with two of the most amazing sisters. Not only are they incredibly kind and wonderful people but they are also my best friends and so, so, so so  talented.   My younger sister Renee is a third grade teacher. However, before that she was in advertising and can write anything.  My older sister Susan (she’s  a year older) is an artist.  She was born an artist.  Her forte is three dimensional collage type art; which she creates for magazines, company literature, children’s books and so much more.  Susan’s latest endeavor has been working with big retailers like Target ,where she comes up with  designs for wrapping paper, gift bags and the like. To say that I  love her work ,is a major understatement.I have several of her pieces hung proudly in my home. About a year ago I was asked to style for a start up company called Lolly and Me. They are a transitional children’s furniture company going from cribs to day beds to adult beds with one main piece of furniture.  The shoot took place in my home and my sister lent us most of the art work and wallpaper for the room shots.  Check out the Lolly and me images on my web site.  Recently Susan has launched an etsy site where you can purchase one of a kind art work and prints. It’s so cool when you meet someone who is so talented and even way cooler,when she’s your sister…….  how lucky am I……U.S. map contiguous, United States map, cut paper US map, collage US map, mixed media US map

Well, the creative gene definitely got passed around in your family! I loved Susan's work, especially the birds...must be because it's spring.
Congratulations to you and her, and also to your sister who teaches third grade, I just taught several classes full of them...she has my greatest admiration! ;)
