KIDS KORNER & ART

KIDS KORNER is an ongoing project involving 
young artists from across the States. I have 
discovered budding artists are extremely creative 
and imaginative, which enhances my petite, 
cupcake pastel paintings. I photoshoot their 
original art only as a backdrop to a 4 1/2" x 
4 1/2" pastel, cupcake painting and their 
original art is returned.

When a painting is completed and published, I 
also post a profile of the young artist. This 
includes their age, where they live, go to school, 
favorite color, animal, and best friend with a detail 
of their original art and a personal photo. 

And the best part, is that the young artist gets 
$25 stipend for use of their art with the sale 
of the painting

This is also a precious way to commemorate 
your children's art. Anyone wishing to 
participate, please email me here.

Following are profiles of the Kids Artists 
with the accompanied cupcake paintings:

ANGELO . . . BUT WE CALL HIM JELLO

Even though he didn't claim it, Godzilla has been Jello's 
obsession for years and years and years. 

There's so many Godzillas - from tall to small - lined up in 
his room. So of course Jello sent me a Godzilla drawing 
for Kids Korner

What a challenge!
