Snippets - An 18-year dream come true!!
Cathryn Ridlen has been a self-taught, right-brained, fly-by-the-seat of her pants artist for as long as she can remember. As a child she was always collecting bits and pieces of junk and making little treasure from them. In 2001 she began focusing on mixed media collage. Her work has been shown nationally at galleries in Colorado, California, Hilton Head and Washington DC. Among her many buyers is actor, Kevin Bacon, who purchased an original collage of a mermaid!! She now creates little treasures everyday with her long-time, best friend, Melissa Hayes.
Melissa Hayes is the left-brained, technical/business mind behind Snippets. She is the ever-organized, detail oriented, errand girl, marketing queen, computer/web guru of the company!! In her spare time, she tries to keep Cathryn "focused" which is a huge job in itself!
Today, after 18 years of friendship and numerous conversations about owning a business together, their dream has come true.
All of our designs feature original art work by Cathryn Ridlen. Each design starts out as a pencil sketch and then the collage is created using "snippets" of paper from various sources, textiles and small objects. The backgrounds are then done with pastels and more collage, thus bringing Whimsical Bits of Fun to any child's room.
With 20 designs in the current line, anyone is sure to find the perfect fit for their child. Parents can choose from one piece to add to an existing nursery or children's bedroom or create a whimsical room by selecting an overall theme in a variety of products.
