Video summary: Video of Original Illustration by James Tom

Hand Embroidered + Home Decor + Pop Culture Greeting Cards

Fine art painter and fiber artist. Obsessed with taking a classic, nostalgic medium like embroidery and taking a more contemporary, ironic approach to the designs. We consider our art is like paintings with string. Collaborating with my husband, a self taught illustrator, is a great adventure and together we share a combined vision of our interests and humor in our work. Also in the shop: are beautifully crafted quilts by my sister, Sue Leonhart, a master quilter. With every scrap and piecing of fabric - she tells a story. Enjoy a chuckle ( or a shriek ) from our Illustrated greeting cards inspired by pop culture and cinematic homages.
