There's No Place Like It

Bring your home state's natural beauty into your own home with this charming artwork. Whimsical illustrations and playful poems using your state's nickname are an ode to the landscapes, plants, animals, and special details that make it unique. From California's majestic redwoods and dramatic Joshua trees, to New York's apple orchards and forest glades, celebrate the place that has your heart with sentimental style. Designed in either a vertical or horizontal orientation (based on state shape), each print is framed in pine with a rich walnut finish that complements the art"s natural feel. Illustrations by Sandra Dumais. Poems by Martin Geller. Printed and framed in Portland, Oregon.

“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.
