Art Starters


It’s no secret that Georgia-based painter/illustrator/creative wonder Ande Cook is one of our favorite artists: Her vibrant images have graced many a Bas Bleu catalog cover. Most recently, we commissioned her to create a painting for our Spring 2013 issue. The result? A cheerful, whimsical image of a mini-menagerie enjoying the blossoming beauty of the season.

Artist Ande Cook has created several cover illustrations for Bas Bleu over the years. Ande's work and philosophy somehow conjure up elements of Frida Kahlo and Fodderwing, Annie Dillard and Opal Whiteley. Read our interview with Ande for insights on what inspires this talented woman—artist, nature lover, writer, avid reader.
