Darcie grew up in Oregon and has devoted her life to her love of art. She is a self taught artist and her love of dogs is evident in her artwork. I spend a lot of time admiring Darcie's artwork at her booth. Her Berner and other breed note cards are wonderful and they are just $10 for a five pack of cards. Her lovely prints sell for $25 to $30 and she carries many other painted items for various prices. Be sure to check out her website, the link is above.

Darcie donated a great painted Berner visor to our upcoming Berner-Garde Fundraiser.

Darcie has some of her prints on shirts:

This is a hand-painted grooming bag. Unfortunately, the Berner bag sold before I could snap a picture of it. The painting is really beautiful, and she takes orders.

This is a hand-painted denim shirt with an adorable Berner pup peeking out of the pocket:

One of Darcie's beautiful prints, and a glimpse of some of the smaller prints:

I think this is one of my favorite items. There are so many uses for this bag! You could put your grooming items in it, sure. However, if you are a scrapbooker or stamper like me, this would be an awesome tote to put all of your must have supplies in to take with you to classes!
