bird love: by laurie coyle

these pieces by laurie coyle just make me happy. i especially love how vibrant and blue the sky looks behind this top piece! isn't it beautiful with the orange words? LOVE.

laurie says her work is "simple, illustrative and joyful, I take inspiration from nature and my own search for happiness. I really love putting a smile on my customers' faces and making the world a more beautiful place through my artwork. I am a painter, graphic designer, illustrator, and print maker, and I also work with fabric to make little animal soft sculptures. I'm currently working on a line of flying birds that I will release this fall, along with a bird-themed wall calendar for 2010."

and look at that little yellow bird! it's so lovely and happy. and if i had more time, i would commission laurie to make a couple of those sweet corduroy birds pictured below for me for the top of my wedding cake. (am i really getting married next weekend? oh my goodness!) they are so adorable!

you can find laurie's work in her etsy shop and on her blog-- go have a gander!

*thanks so much, laurie!*
