About the Artist

Whitney Van Praagh

Whitney and son, William.

Since her art-school days, Whitney Van Praagh's playful and sophisticated images have been giving pleasure to others. For years, Whitney has made these warm, colorful drawings as gifts for her family and close friends. Now as a mom of two, Whitney's cards celebrate the joys of daily life. Whitney's cards are wonderful for special occasions as well as for spontaneous celebrations!

In these intimate images can be seen Whitney's joy for life, and her background as a textile designer. Whitney's inspiration comes from nature and the sinuous curves and graphic sophistication of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Gustav Klimt, and Fritz Hundertwasser.

It was Whitney's grandfather, Harry L. Tower, an accomplished illustrator in his own right, who advised her to follow her passion for art and make a career of it.
