As I began my career as a pioneer of the nursery interior design world, I also found myself creating custom nursery wall art for my design clients. I didn’t think much of it at first, as these personalized canvas creations were meant solely for the enjoyment of the family for whom I was decorating. However as my designer nurseries gained publicity and press, inquiries started pouring in about how others could purchase my nursery wall art. I decided to offer my own line of nursery wall art for sale on my own site and in online and brick and mortar boutiques nationwide and Sherri Blum Designs was born.
Initially I hand painted each new order. But as the popularity grew, I found my time consumed with painting my best sellers often in assembly line fashion. Some days I was painting and shipping up to 5 or more of any given design. I found I was spending so much time painting and shipping that I was left with little time for designing and creating new decor. As a child, I was always painting, doodling and sketching. I loved being an artist! However now it was redundant and uninspiring and something had to give.
Within just a few years, my kids wall art was being offered in over 100 boutiques nationwide and I made the very necessary and smart decision to begin making and selling reproductions of my designs rather than hand painted art. Now, about 15 years later, my best sellers are still in production with the help of my licensee, Oopsy Daisy. Here you’ll see my current collection. Stay tuned for new releases coming soon. I truly enjoy creating new designs and plan to release many in the next several months.
