“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She 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, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. 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.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.

Absolutely loved!!


We gave this as a group gift to our parents. We all absolutely loved it!! I think we may go back and buy individual ones as well. Very well made too.

New Canaan, CT


Everyone went crazy happy for this gift.


A wedding gift to our daughter.



I WOULD buy this product again, and again!


There is always a concern when you buy art for friends....but NOT in this case! Not only did the recipient love it, but a fun, unanticipated benefit is the gift was the talk of all her friends! I got asked several times where I got it (Love Uncommon Goods for EXACTLY that reason!). Taking advantage of the personalization was key and the staff was so patient as I continued to make edits; great experience from beginning to end!

Love the final product


This was the perfect gift for a new beach house. It came just as pictured and the wooden frame is beautiful.

Loved my first one so bought one for a friend


This ended up being a signature piece for our rental home in Florida, our way of personalizing the space. I even asked that the cat was bigger than the dog (as is the case in our family) in the artwork, and the artist complied. Loved it so much, that I ordered one for our friends who also have a beach rental in Florida.

Great gift.


This was one of the many personalized items that I have bought from Uncommon goods and they have always been big hits as gifts.

The Perfect Gift


This picture turned out great. Everyone loves it.

Frustrating process


The artwork is adorable but the process was rough. Received proof, modified and approved. Artwork sent, gave as gift, when opened, was another family altogether! Embarrassingly, took gift back and contacted customer service. New print ordered, was not offered expedited service at all. When rec'd, it was incorrect. It was the order from first proof, not modified and approved proof. So sad to then deliver incorrect gift a second time.

San Antonio, TX


Perfect gift


I could not be happier, its a perfect gift for mothers day, we travel together as a large family for beach vacation every year.



When we open our gifts, the other five will be jealous!


It's just perfect! This family spends lots of time at the beach and their home is a beach theme. It brought a tear to my eye when I opened it! I can't wait for them to see it! Thank you!
