“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.

My sister loved this unique gift. They are a family that likes to canoe, so this was particularly special and appropriate. I would have paid more for a higher quality wood frame, maybe two frames of varying quality could be offered. I elected to purchase the print without a frame since I didn't think that the recipient would care for a frame made of synthetic materials. Frame issue aside, I felt great giving this special and unique gift and the recipients were thrilled with receiving it.

Really cute. A good size and graphics look nice in person. I just wish more options were given to differentiate family members--like being able to change colors of clothes that were associated when picking characters. When you pick a type of hair it designates the clothes and I was unable to customize that, even after contact with customer service. Being a family portrait, characters are going to share types of hair, so there should be ways to differentiate the characters without them wearing the same clothes and having the same hair. I ended up with two characters that are not twins but appear that way. "Personalized" isn't quite the right adjective.

        The grandparents have taken all their grandchildren (and now great grandchildren) canoeing over the years. They are now aged between 31 and 14 month old. This picture was to reflect how super the years have been being a family having fun together.

          What do you get someone who has everything?! My parents can be extremely difficult to shop for, but this was the perfect Christmas gift. Some of our best family memories have been made at their Summer lake house in Maine, where we always take a canoe trip down the Saco river. This gift was personalized, thoughtful, of good quality and they absolutely loved it! I think my Dad may have even secretly shed a tear!
