Dear Friends,

I sometimes like to create abstract pieces using my painted tissue paper sheets, as well as other materials such as silk fabric, plate glass, plastic sheathing and aluminum foil. I continue to create pieces in my studio, little works that for one reason or another capture my attention. I thought you might like to see an example of this kind of art including an Ingo Maurer ceiling lamp in my home that I decorated using pieces of my painted papers!

  1. Beautiful work! Your light fixture is brilliant, as well. Great inspiration!

  2. I love the papers on the lamp. What wonderful designs. But can I ask what is written on the one white sheet? It would be interesting to know how it ties in with all the patterned sheets.

  3. Hi, I am a random fan,
    just found your site.
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE your books. I have six sweet kiddos and have taught school and done daycare and your books are always a favorite! the stories are sweet, the art magical and the whole package wonderful.
    I never thought I'd get to thank you so I am glad to here.

  4. Eric, I just want to say thank you for the beautiful art you've made. My three year old has the very hungry catepillar bedsheet set on her bed, her absolute favorite book is the Very Busy Spider.

    My seven month old daughter loves to mouth any of your board books, and is fascinated with the colors. Her favorite toy is the chime toy of the Very Hungry Catepillar. The smile she gets on her face when she sees it is just amazing.

    Thank you so much!

    Kris, Jai and Ki
