Heart Specialists

Celebrating the full picture of "grand" life, these mugs feature Sandra Dumais' playful heart illustrations that offer refreshingly honest looks into nana- and pawpaw-ism. Inspired by her own experiences as a parent, Sandra hand sketches, paints, and digitally draws a narrative interplay of words and images. The result: odes to traits like Grandma's center of warmth and Grandpa's inner curmudgeon that make positively charming character studies. Mugs made in China. Decorated in Edina, Minnesota.

“I believe there is a story in everything, and often draw inspiration in the mundane.”

Sandra Dumais' work is inspired by her childhood, children, and the "funny, tender world" around her. "I believe there is a story in everything, and often draw inspiration in the mundane," she says. She took to drawing at a young age, making books out of the musty rolls of wallpaper she found in her linen closet. Her artworks feature a mix of illustration, painting, and digital drawing, culminating in pieces that weave tales through words and images.
