Learn By Heart

Like pages from a children's schoolbook, Kim Smith's imaginative interactive poster makes learning the ABCs as fun as a trip to the zoo! Each letter of this vibrant print was once contained in a hand-bound book given from a grandfather to his granddaughter to celebrate her 1st birthday. Touched by her friend's gesture and his whimsical watercolor silhouettes, Kim manipulated the original, alphabetical pages digitally, organizing the sweet, gestural animal depictions into a darling piece of children's décor.

From the ambling ape to the zippy zebra, children and adults will delight in the bright depictions of these friendly beasts as their daily alphabet lesson explodes into an uproarious medley of animal sounds! Printed using 108-year Ultrachrome K3 inks on high-quality matte paper. Contemporary white frame. Made in San Francisco, California, and signed by the artist.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Kim Smith

Kim Smith's collages are meant to be intimate, thought provoking, peaceful and just plain fun. Creating art is a form of relaxation for Smith, and she wants her pieces to inspire others.

Born in Seattle, Washington, Smith spent 10 years of her childhood in Germany. She has degrees in design, economics and an MBA. She studied art through friends, her own observations and exploring her own creativity.

Her travel experiences in Europe caused her to be inspired by the Dada, Bauhaus, and Wiener Werkstatte movements, as well as Russian Constructivism. Smith enjoys working with old material from everyday life and putting it to new use.
