Helen, I'm viewing all the art you've already submitted for the Minted & Pottery Barn kids/ Teens, and along with what I've already seen on the Minted and West Elm, i've become such a huge fan of your art! I love your aesthetic!

Love your work, Helen. Your illustrations have such a storybook quality to them, wish I could have bought them when my kids were younger! Good luck in the challenge.

Hi Helen, I have a suggestion on entering both the landscape and extended size of the same picture. Just enter it once, and add the other size in your comments, so minted, and voters, can see it comes in both sizes.Makes sense when they're both the same photo. Good luck!
