Kim Herbst graduated with a BFA in illustration from Maryland Institute College of Art. She is a freelance illustrator residing in San Francisco, CA. Her personal illustrations have been featured in  magazines, album covers, gallery shows and children's educational books. Kim is a frequent and dedicated supporter of The Mother Hen Project and I'm delighted to be able to showcase 3 pieces which she has kindly donated this year.

Elderleaf art & cards

I have always delighted in the flourish of my Mum's calligraphy and art work ever since I was a child and even in her 80s, she continues to show incredible pen & brush control, writing/drawing & making every day. Grandma 'Elderleaf' has created a series of original, one-of-a-kind, hand-made cards for The Mother Hen Project - They can be mailed or framed or both!

Sonoma Barn, by Charu Clark

Charu grew up in India and now lives in northern California and works at Pixar Animation Studios as a lighting artist.
"Though my day job entails the use of a computer more than a paintbrush, of all technical fields related to computer graphics, Lighting feels the most akin to painting in the real world. That said, the thrill of a paintbrush in my hands is something I cannot live without."
Charu has donated a beautiful original oil painting titled 'Sonoma Barn' which will be available to purchase on March 10th at Laguna Town Hall in Elk Grove.  100% to benefit Chicks In Crisis.

Three Little Hens & Baby Chicks prints.

Two charming 1950's children's book prints in keeping with our Mother Hen theme. Illustrators unknown but this pair of prints would look fabulous in the nursery.

Vase of Flowers, by Riana

Kicking off our showcase of art donated to The Mother Hen Project #3 with this delightful original pen & ink drawing by Riana who is just 9 years old.  I was amazed when she offered to donate it for our Chicks In Crisis fundraiser. Such a beautiful and inspiring piece by such a young talented artist. Hoping that more children are inspired to donate artwork this year. Thank you Riana!
