Artist, Bernadette Youngquist recreates her Etsy shop with fresh art and product.

Nostalgia and Whimsy is an ever morphing expression of my artistic growth. I have been experimenting with various media since 2001. My children were small when I set up an easel in the corner of my laundry room and began to paint. Now my boys are grown and I have a whole room designed for and dedicated to my artistic pursuits in fine art and illustration. I know it's cliche, but I am inspired by nature! It provides an endless array of colors, shapes, and patterns which I translate into my art. I think my nostalgic and romantic side comes through too, as well as a bit whimsy and fun! I hope to engage you in my process as I continue my creative metamorphosis.
