Would all sugar addicts out there give a huge welcome to Krista Smith our newest illustrator to join the family at the House of Sugar. I discovered her characters and fell in love with them. I love the sassy ones, the nerdy one and the boys too! I love too many on these and have a had time picking which ones to make into stamps.
I know that Krista will go far in the art world and I will watch with delight and excitement as to which doors open for her in the next few year. It is very exciting if not frightening for us to launch an artist into the world of rubber, you would think by now I would be used to it, but it still is nerve racking, this market is so up and down I am never 100% sure of my own choices, in my heart I know that Krista's characters are artistically beautiful, original and a little more grown up than the usual cute children's stamps which are our signature line.

As always I know how you love to get to know the artist behind the designs,  its clear that Krista is talented, her picture tells us she is young, but also she is a Mother, so lets have a look at the two cuties who inspire some one Krista's work.

Enjoy your day sugar addicts and remember in a years time when everyone is crazy for Krista, you "met" her here. Good people deserve good things and all good things come to those who wait. Good times ahead, hold on tight its going to be an exciting time :)
