You know that feeling when you come across something you instantly love? That's what happened when I saw Hilary Emerson Lay's artwork.

Her creative incorporation of text and images makes me think mixed media is the best media... yup it definitely is. Read more about her creative process here.

Arty folks can get a little wah-wahh and take themselves too seriously. That's why I love an artist with a sense of humor, an artist who really has fun creating. I think that comes across in Hilary's work... hat tip to you, you bad mamajama. Keep havin' fun.

Everyone needs a party pig card... FACT.

See more art goodies by Hilary over at her Etsy shop... you'll find something you love, I just know it.
