TX Winter Storm Relief 2021- Custom Wall Hanging

Custom Die-Cut Wood Prints

Our friends over at Hemlock & Heather reached out to us to see if we wanted to be part of their efforts to help with the disaster relief after our unprecedented weather this month. We of course said yes and the limited edition Texas Strong Wall Hanging was born!

Before we get any farther, Hemlock & Heather is only taking preorders through tomorrow, March 2, so if you want one, order now! 100% of the proceeds from the Texas Strong Wall Hanging will go to I Live Here I Give Here‘s Disaster Relief Fund

After the winter storm that hit Texas hard, Kris and Kelley of Hemlock & Heather knew they had to do something to help those who were devastated by the unprecedented weather conditions and its aftermath. So many families, so many businesses were without electricity, heat, and water in freezing temperatures. So, they got to work on that Friday morning sketching out a concept for a Texas Wall Hanging that they could sell to support relief efforts.

“The idea behind the design for this 8″ Texas Strong Wall Hanging was simple: we wanted to convey hope and strength. So, we married retro colors we love to the suggestion of dawn breaking on a frigid Texas.”

Because, “Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”
– Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

We are so glad to be apart of something directly helping fellow Texans, and are thankful to work with such great customers, and now partners, like Hemlock & Heather!

Featured Artist: Kate Fitzpatrick

Kate Fitzpatrick is a painter and illustrator whose work focuses primarily on animal portraits and animal stories. She is originally from Indiana and studied film in Georgia. She spent years working in reality TV in Los Angeles before eventually making her way to Austin to focus on working full time as an artist. Fitzpatrick said the art scene in Austin has been incredibly rich and supportive. 

She is a lifelong animal lover and that is evident in her work. She is fascinated by animal behavior and true animal stories, from elephant funerals to humpback whale calves breaching for the first time, and much more. These stories inspire her paintings and illustrations. “I love color, thick brush strokes, paint texture, and gold dots, which find their way into everything I do!” Fitzpatrick said. Her paintings are acrylic on cotton canvas or cradled wood, and her illustrations are highly detailed pen and art marker on heavyweight paper.
