Please help us welcome Ann Willey to the indigenous family of artists. She has added a variety of lovely cards, prints of her paintings, to our dynamic collection.

"My paintings have a narrative quality that explores my love of nature and family, and hint at multiple layers of meaning. I consider myself a contemporary folk artist, and am inspired by the traditional arts of many cultures and American folk art." ~Ann Willey

Exciting & new delivery of ceramic tiles, including the latest release, " Who's Watching Whom?" (on right). This little Gray Jay might be watching you more than you are watching him! A perfect choice for all bird lovers, Charley Harper fans, and artTILE collectors.
Charley Harper created the original print in 1973 for the Ford Times publication. Through the ongoing partnership between Nawal Motawi & the family-run Charley Harper Studio, we get to share these perfect artTILE collaboratio ns. Mid-century modern meets Motawi mastery in the tiles based on the work of celebrated Cincinnati wildlife artist Charley Harper (1922-2007), a self-described "minimal realist."
