Patricia Carlin

Patricia Carlin

Patricia started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business. Patricia designed and wrote copy for several product lines for the new venture.

When Red Wheel Weiser Conari Press noticed the glassware at a gift show, they saw book potential. With their help, Patricia produced two books: "Glam Girl" and "Geeky Girl".

Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says. "After I had my daughter I rediscovered the power these little sketches have to tell a story. Drawing was a fun way to communicate without language." collection

          This is the perfect gift for the family of skiers and snowboarders. The ability to personalize the outfits, the skin tone and hair colors is nothing short of perfection! I purchased two of these and the recipients were beside themselves with the thoughtfulness of the gift!

            The order has been handled very professionally and efficiently since it's placed. The proof was sent in a very timely manner via email. The framed art is sent in a very carefully packaged box with no damages at all! My only recommendation is to have more graphic figure options for the size and color of the dogs.
            thank you for a great gift!

            The mat surrounding the painting is pretty large so the picture itself is smaller than I imagined. And the colors are very light. Over all a beautiful piece and I'm extremely happy I ordered it. Just thought I'd give a little insight!

              This is an Anniversary gift for my son and his family. They need for nothing, and I'm tired of the same old gift cards (although I'm sure I'll still throw one in). This is so cute. Grandpa always goes skiing with them so it was fun to include him. This will look great in their family room....or wherever they choose to put it. It's the type of gift that could go with any decor because it is personal. It arrived quickly, in perfect shape. Absolutely no complaints on this end. Glad I found it.

                Beautiful watercolor technique. Easy to personalize. I purchased it after we took our young children on their first ski trip & they were proud when they remembered learning to ride the lifts. I wish there was a wood (or woodsy) frame choice, and I wish the faces had features (any small detail, they are blank). Arrived much quicker than anticipated.

                  You get exactly what you order, no gimmicks! This will impress everyone with how unique it is. I bought it for my best friend, whom is a long time ski bunny, and she was stunned and amazed! A job well done!

                        There is no difference in size between the adult figures and the child figures on the actual picture. The figures on the actual picture do not really look the same as the ones I selected online.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        I ordered this 2-3 weeks before Christmas (for a Christmas present) and did not even get emailed a proof until after Christmas. Even after pointing out that the child's figure was the same size as the adult figures, no real changes were made to the actual picture when I got it, at the end of January.
