{art inspiration: the animal printshop}

It's been a long time since I've done an 'art inspiration' post! Today I'm highlighting the beautiful work of photographer Sharon Montrose whose animal series features real live animals, raised {and most rescued} by loving animal keepers. These amazing photos are shot either in studio or outside at the facilities where they live, then photoshopped into the backdrop. You may have caught the lovely baby camel pics in this gorgeous nursery designed by Morgan Satterfield of The Brick House & photographed by Laure Joliet:

 
Now that's what I call a nursery, Dorothy Draper dresser and all!!
 
 
 
But that's only the beginning, Sharon Montrose's shop, The Animal Printshop, is full of gorgeous pieces for animal lovers of all ages!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Catching moments behind the scenes on Sharon's blog:
 
 
 
 
What lovely inspiration! Dare I say a great Christmas gift idea? To see more prints check out The Animal Printshop here.

That first nursery melts my heart! Great post Nancy and thanks for sharing as I was wondering where that fab Camel picture came from!

LOVE her photos. Each of the kid's rooms are sporting her work. And seriously, how cool to snuggle with a baby zebra :)

I came across Sharon's animal photographs a few years ago - LOVE them! The baby animals are just too cute, especially the little porcupine :-)

I purchased three photos of Sharon Montrose's work when setting up my daughter's nursery. In fact, we were just returning from getting them framed when my water broke. They are absolutely keep forever pieces!
