Strawberry Shortcake Custom Artwork
Strawberry Shortcake

A little bit of history...

One of the first things I remember trying to draw was my Strawberry Shortcake doll. As my collection grew, it soon became almost like a little ritual for me -- lining up my dolls with the correct pet and sitting down in front with my bucket of markers and paper. Although I had many children's books that I loved, I first began to understand what illustration was with my Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears books. This is how I drew her when I was about six years old.

Many years later, I still love drawing these wonderful characters. I'm happy to say that I have artwork in collections from Australia to Canada! I have so much fun creating custom designs, especially for characters that were never produced, such as the Party Pleaser versions of Huckleberry Pie and Blueberry Muffin.

Do you have a favorite Strawberryland character? Or a great custom idea? Even a favorite color or scent can be the beginnings of your very own character! Let me help you bring your own character to life!
