Here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we have many talented artists that we enjoy working with. Their art is featured within the categories of our framed prints, decorative pillows and much much more. Today, let’s meet an artist perhaps you are familiar with: Dianna Swartz.
A favored artist by many of our customers is none other than, Dianna Swartz. Folk artist Dianna Swartz was born and raised near the hills of Southern Ohio. She was drawing and painting they say, before she could walk or talk. Today, Dianna lives a bit more north in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. For the most part, she is a self-taught artist, crediting her inspiration to God. Her artwork has been featured at the American Folk Art Museum in New York and has also been transferred to many household decor items such as: pillows, throws, woven tapestries, furniture boxes and even wall paper! Dianna even had the honor of designing ornaments for the White House Christmas tree, as well as for the Governor’s residence in Ohio. She is nationally recognized for her “Folkheart By Dianna” collection of prints, being produced onto framed art and furniture.
The Four Seasons
A collection of prints that has proven very popular with Sturbridge Yankee Workshop customers, is our Seasons Prints. These charming country style prints can be displayed individually or collect all four for an inspiring way to pass the year. Each one offers a simple and quaint theme that represents the season well; creating a perfect old-time look for your home. Shown above is the Spring Season Print, featuring a leaping hare across a spring meadow, between two tall trees. The whimsical folk art appeal is achieved through the large size of this friendly white animal. The success of her prints has lead to the existence of our Seasons Needlepoint Pillow. Switch up your decor each season with ease by simply changing your Seasons Print wall decor or replacing your Seasons Needlepoint Pillow with the appropriate season. Make a statement with these beautiful, seasonal images and you and your guests will always know what time of year it is.
