Sarah Watts

I saw the work of illustrator Sarah Watts at the recent Indie Craft Experience in Atlanta and was quickly smitten by her offbeat, charming style. 

Sarah works in pen and ink, as well as watercolor. Sarah, "I love the simplicity of black and white and then I go and change my mind 400 times with color in the computer." 

Sarah draws all sorts of animals and quirky, fabulous characters as well as fanciful things like trees, pianos and ornamental lights. Her first illustrated book is The Tilting House by Tom Llewellyn and you may also notice her work in the recent Food Trucks book published by Random House. 

Much of Sarah's work is Southern inspired, including this fun Ritz in Grits print. Perusing her work, I especially like (and want to have!) her ever expanding collection of fabrics that she designs for Blend Fabrics.  

Most of Sarah's prints are 11" x 14" and are just $20. Such an easy way to make a room more inviting and interesting. Learn more about Sarah Watts here.
