Want to send unique handmade holiday cards this year? Or maybe you’d like to gift some artwork to a loved one? Then you should absolutely stop by the AbbyDora Design table at RIT’s Winter Craft Fair this Friday Dec. 14th. Here are the details:
RIT WINTER CRAFT FAIR
(ON CAMPUS IN THE SAU)
FRIDAY DEC. 14TH
This craft fair showcases the wares from RIT’s own faculty and alumni. There’s a great variety of work: jewelry, sculpture, glass, cards, and artwork/prints. At my table I’ll be selling cute Christmas cards—both as box sets and individual cards. I’ll also have matted children’s illustration prints and my farm and wild animals on wood panels. I’ll also be selling (and signing!) copies of my Old MacDonald Had A Farm book. Finish up your holiday shopping this week at the RIT Craft Fair!
If you are local and interested in attending, you can find out more information and directions here. I certainly do hope to see you on Friday!

It’s June 1st and that means I’m in full production mode to prepare for the Corn Hill Festival happening on July 7th & 8th. The AbbyDora Design booth will have handmade greeting cards, stationery sets, art prints, and original artwork perfect for a child’s room or classroom.
The new item that I will be selling this year are 6″ x 6″ digital prints mounted to wood panels. Last week, I prepared a sample mounted panel with my monkey artwork and it turned out great!
The square digital prints are mounted to archival wood panels that are ready to hang with a nail slot already formatted into the back of each panel. Simply hook the nail into the slot and the artwork is on the wall!
Since these prints don’t need to be framed, they are a very affordable way to decorate your home! Beginning at the Corn Hill Festival in Rochester, New York the entire farm animal and wild animal collection will be available on wood panels.

I’ve been painting up a storm lately in preparation for the Rochester Corn Hill Festival on July 7th & 8th and today I would like you all to be the first to meet my new animal friends!
These paintings are a series of two animal collections—FARM ANIMALS and WILD ANIMALS. Each print will be mounted to a 6″ x 6″ wood panel for easy hanging. The Farm Animals will also have their matching animal sounds added to them in the final print versions.
I love the colorful squares backgrounds! You will be able to mix and match these prints to built your own collection. They will be available for sale in late June in my shop, but if you are interested now let me know. I will make a note that you get one of the first panels off the production line!

Happy first day of Spring!
Yesterday I saw bright green shoots of Crocus poking out of the ground and this morning I heard birds chirping outside my studio! Ah Spring, it feels so good.
I am so inspired by Spring. I love that color comes back to the natural world and I think you can see this joy in my new spring products.
For those of you in the Rochester, NY area, this FRIDAY MARCH 23 from 10am-4pm I’ll be participating at RIT’s Spring Art Festival. I hope you will stop by my booth to browse my unique handmade greeting cards and notecard box sets. I’ll be featuring Easter cards, Mother’s Day cards, and my cute Bug and Wild Flower note cards sets. I’ll also have have my 3-demensional handmade party garlands in all sorts of spring colors and patterns. And of course, there will be lots of digital prints of my children’s illustrations too. Support a local upstate New York artist and come visit the AbbyDora Design booth!
