Critter Art: For the Cute Critters In Your Life

I was recently introduced to a new Etsy shop by the name of Critter Letter Art. Owner and artist, Jennifer Gilbart, is a New Yorker that first started hand painting her critter art 20 years ago.  Fast forward to 2014 when my little lady came into the world, and has been an animal lover ever since. She loves ALL things animals, so seriously canNOT stop looking at her beautiful canvas. I also made the mistake of letting her lovingly touch and see EACH of the digitally printed critters and now she doesn’t feel like her canvas should stay attached to...
