Gift Ideas and Inspiration: the Art of Sam Battersby


I recently discovered the work of Ms. Sam Battersby of Matou en Pelouche - artistic genius. I tagged her earlier as the creator of one of my favorite blogs and, looking at her art (created by charcoal and pastel), you can see why! It took me forever to choose just five pieces from her etsy shop for the collage because it's all just gorgeous! I love the colors, the shapes, the sexiness and the whimsy.

I may have to redecorate my studio so I can paper it with her marvelous prints.


  1. Those are awesome! Why do you keep posting shops that are completely irresistible? Great post!

  2. Oh... I LOVE the bottom left one. These are very cool!

  3. Adorable! I love the vintage feeling of them!
