Sweet & Savory Dreams

Born in the wilds of Vermont and raised in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, artist Sarah Nicholas Williams developed an early bond with the woodland creatures who scurried through her backyard and into her imagination. As a girl, she refused to be anything other than a well-dressed lady mouse for Halloween; today, as an adult with a little one of her own, her fanciful watercolor paintings still embrace her fervor for these charming critters and display the curious scenarios that occupy her active imagination.

This drowsy bird dozes in a bespoke suit while still being sure to guard a delectable patch of deep-rooted onions. These freshly-sprouted bulbs are sure to make a savory snack for this winged fellow once he wakes!

Reminiscent of classic illustrated tales by Beatrix Potter (Peter Rabbit), Jean de Brunhoff (Babar), and Ernest Shepard (Winnie the Pooh and The Wind in the Willows), Sarah's whimsical works prompt viewers to delve into her storied words and to create spectacular narratives of their own.

Her original India ink and watercolor illustration is rendered in fantastic detail in this high-quality print. Printed on enhanced matte paper and framed in gray wood in the USA.
