My Art on the Big (& Little) Screens

A little over a week ago, I was so surprised when my sister-in-law, Gabriella, texted me from the movie theater that she was in with her kids. She was so excited to tell me that a wall hook featuring my artwork was in the new Smurfs movie in several scenes! That’s the very first time any of my artwork has been on the big screen (at least to my knowledge).

On occasion, my sister Kristin, who handles all of my licensing, will get a call from a television production company asking for permission to use either my wall art or some other product featuring my artwork in their show. For the most part though, I will be watching something or one of my family members will see something on a show and call it to my attention. I always get a kick out of it! I thought I would share some of the things I have seen over the years.

I have seen some of my designs on several HGTV and home decor/redesign types of shows.  I saw the tray on an episode of “House Hunters”:

This bird print was in a after version of a  bathroom on “Moving Up” with Doug Wilson:

One of my early rooster prints was shown in an “after” kitchen on “Trading Spaces”:

Storage boxes using these Palm Trees set the theme for a whole living room on HGTV’s “My First Place”:

I was really surprised when I saw some more of my ceramics in Jeanna Keough’s house on Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Orange County”. My “Boulevard” Collection (now retired) by Certified International lined Jeanna’s China Cabinet in the dining room off her kitchen!

I thought it was funny when I heard that Tamara Barney had a set of my Chocolate Rose Floral prints in her bathroom (seen during an argument scene with her now ex-husband):

 More recently, the set designers called from the tv show “HOUSE” and asked permission to use my art placemats. I haven’t seen the episode yet, so if you see them, let me know!

If you see any of my art on the big or little screen – let me know! I would love to hear from you!
