Mary Blair

Today's Google doodle celebrates the life of hugely talented artist Mary Blair, most famous for the concept artwork she produced for Walt Disney productions in the 40's and 50's.
There is so much colour and fun about Mary's work and I really love her character style.

Sadly Mary passed away in 1978, today she would have been 100!! So here's to Mary and her beautiful work.

This season there are two of my designs in their range, 'Nutkin' and 'Secret Garden'...
