My original sculpture of primitive French farmhouses is now available as a set of professionally printed fine art greeting cards!


These beautiful French farmhouse greeting cards feature a high quality photographic print of my original clay sculpture. These high quality cards are professionally printed on a thick 350gsm paper sourced from sustainable forests. Each card has a smooth satin coating on the outside and a nice uncoated writing surface on the blank inside. It is professionally scored and folded and includes a nicely designed crisp white envelope.

Tucked quietly into the rolling hills and fields of lavender in the south of France are these centuries-old farmhouses and cottages. Stony and rustic, their simple beauty has stood the test of time with a charm and elegance that still inspires us today. These little clay representations mimic the moss- and mineral-laden white stone facades and the terra cotta rooftops with purely organic, unpainted clay in my original sculpture. All textures and rustic effects are achieved only with this clay, in white, ochre and terra cotta tones, from the coast of Spain. I hope these pieces bring your memories and fantasies of the French countryside to life.

This purchase includes six (6) French farmhouse greeting cards and six (6) white envelopes. Each card measures 148mm x 105mm (5.82 x 4.13 inches). Envelopes measure 152 x 108mm (5.98 x 4.25 inches).

I'm a Scandinavian-American artist and designer living in Norway. I studied fine art in Madison, Wisconsin, United States, and worked in arts administration and graphic design in the U.S. My work has taken influence from several years of living in Holland, both from modern Dutch design and from the masters of the Dutch Golden Age, as well as from Scandinavian design here in Norway. My work has been featured in The Huffington Post, HGTV, Dutch Design Week 2011, Apartment Therapy, NRC Netherlands, Sweet Paul Magazine, West Elm, Remodelista, Etsy Blog, Design Mom, and more.
