Nautical by Nature - Summer Pillow Project

I live 1 block from the beach and although I am grateful for what some people think is an excellent location, I am a tiny bit envious of my neighbors who has the beach in their back yards. This summer I have decided to remedy the situation by bringing the beach inside. To that end, I have designed some nautical themed graphic pillows inspired by my coastal surroundings.

I drive by it every day - it has become the backdrop to my life. I wanted to bring it inside, so I did a drawing - from my perspective of course - and created a pillow.

I had visited a light house in Boston the previous summer so I wanted to create a kind of memorial pillow - although, such a tragedy is impossible to forget.

Most days you will see me there with my sketch pad and pencils drawing the images in my head.

Who said coastal decor had to be seahorses, seashells & driftwood :)
