Multi-dsicipline artist Gerren Lamson created this stylized art series simply titled 'Woodland Creatures.' A collection of 12 illustrations in all, Lamson's patchwork style exudes a warmth and homeyness that is hard to resist. These endearing pieces celebrate the majesty of the natural world through the use of manufactured textiles and decorative elements. Featuring a clever collection of contrasting textures pulled from every corner of the design world, these fuzzy animals will have nature lovers and kitsch collectors swooning.

Everything from sheet music to wall paper is salvaged and used to create these oddly realistic representations of the animal kingdom. Perfectly proportioned, these quilted woodland creations combine the divine design of the natural world with manufactured beauty to create compelling visuals you'll love to look at.

Quirky, clever and cool, the work of Gerren Lamson is comforting yet unexpected.
