Susan DuBois Artist Profile

Susan is a long time customer of Matboard and More’s and she utilizes multi opening custom mats to display her awesome wall art on Etsy!

Four years ago, she opened a shop on Etsy, the peer-to-peer e-commerce website specializing in the sale of handmade and vintage items. cloudnineprints.etsy.com, exclusively sells storybook art for nurseries and children’s rooms.

She shares a bit more of her story with us.

I believe that the early, special connection children have with their books can be enhanced by decorating their bedrooms with storybook illustrations.  Classic children’s book illustrators know how to hold a child’s attention and spark their imagination. Why not display their works of art on your child’s walls for them to enjoy every day? Storybook wall art keeps the book “open” long after the story ends!

The most popular prints in my Etsy shop are Winnie the Pooh, Babar the Elephant, and Beatrix Potter. When preparing these prints for sale, I need to mat oddly-sized vintage illustrations to fit modern-sized frames; Matboard & More excels in this arena. My customers are very happy, as am I!

Matboard and More is profiling artists and groups that use our products as part of the 2015 Photo Contest.
