Colorful Collaboration


"Space Walk" Quilt by Cottontail Quilts.

Cindi at Cottontail Quilts first contacted me for a commission idea she had about making a rabbit painting to use for her cards and tags for her shop. Cindi has a great shop on Etsy where she makes custom quilts, children's apparel and crib sets. She also has and adorable house bunny named Harriet who inspired her shop name.

Through our collaboration I also ended up making a banner and avatar for her etsy shop, in turn Cindi surprised me with a beautiful quilt based on one of my rabbit paintings.

She did such beautiful work I decided to see if she was interested in further collaboration. Though we have never met in person, we emailed back and forth and agreed easily on how this would work.

Cindi continues to surprise and delight me with her interpretations of my paintings as quilts. Take a look at her shop for more:

101 Rabbit Paintings



Here is a new video I put together of some of the bunny ACEO's I've done over the last couple of years. ACEO stands for Art Card Editions and Originals. They are pieces of artwork measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches (6.4 cm x 8.9 cm), the same as a standard playing card.

I actually seem to have a lot more than 101 paintings of rabbits...but you know what they say about bunnies. You start with a couple and soon you have hundreds.
