We were so pleased today when we opened a box full of hollyhocks, gladioli, carrots and beets, red roosters, crows, a few earnest foxes, and coffee cups, all printed on cards by Izabela Gabrielson. Based in Seattle, Gabrielson is a painter who depicts natural landscapes of the Pacific Northwest, still lifes, as well as adorable portraits of animals.  Gabrielson works primarily in watercolor and ink, and all of the designs on her greeting cards are printed from original watercolor paintings.

Aside from her evocative and vibrant color palette, we love how Gabrielson leaves the sentiment of her cards up for interpretation.  Placing each image against a plain white background, Gabrielson lets each creature speak for itself.  On what occasion will you give someone a midnight blue crow? Or a bunch of winter beets?

Be sure to visit Gabrielson’s etsy store as well as her website to learn more about her work.
