6.29-30.15: KATE TORTLAND

Kate Tortland is one of those rare people who can simultaneously create an entire dream-world of pirates and sailors and gnomes and pipes, while at the same time creating actual fabrics out of her patterns, stationary from her gnome stories and crank out multiple full-scale paintings in a week. 

If you're interested in Gnomery and puns, she has a whole line of fun stationary and other goodies at JollyGnome.com. To check out some of her other artworks, go to KateTortlandArt.com.
