I learned about Amy Ruppel several years ago.
The story goes like this:
My good friend Tex was an avid collector of the prints available through Tiny Showcase. I fell in love with this print, first seen in her home on display, but because it was sold out I had to settle for the pins.
A few years later, dear Tex is living in Portland. We went into a little shop carrying goods from local artists and craftspeople and I immediately recognized Amy Ruppel's work.
Cut to today, and on one of my favorite street style blogs, Urban Weeds, who should be featured but Amy Ruppel herself.
It is nice to pair a face to the work that I have loved and admired for years.
