Celebrating the positive impact art has on us and

exploring ways to further incorporate art into our daily lives.

Art by Patience Brewster ~

Those who follow along here at Hyacinths know

 my heart has needed some inspiration of late.

Do you know this pretty lady?

Meet Patience Brewster

a creative, talented soul who is the artist

behind the whimsical, delightful designs 

for Patience Brewster, Inc.

Dash Away Donna ~ Austin Four Seasons Hotel ~ 2010

As an elementary teacher, 

I first knew Patience Brewster as an author 

and illustrator of children's books.  

She is also the artist behind the charming  

ornaments and figures many of us know as Krinkles.

My own Dash Away Donna hangs on our

Christmas tree along with other Krinkles each season.

I was delighted to read the story behind the

 Dash Away Reindeer on Patience's Blog here.

Queen of Hearts by Patience Brewster

Patience Brewster, on a personal mission 

to inspire others with her work, 

has indeed inspired my heart today.

Patience's enchanting figure was the "arrow" that inspired 

my Queen of Hearts tray for Valentine's Day.

Now my heart is telling me I just may

need to add another Queen of Hearts.

A bit of royalty to reign over  

the festivities for the month of February.

My heart is inspired!

Thank you, Patience Brewster.

You were my valentine muse this year!
