Hand painted rocker

I had so much fun creating this whimsical Southwestern themed rocking chair! This was a commission for a sweet little girl in Aspen, CO. As it turns out, her dad and I went to school together here in Tennessee. It really is a small world!

Creating this design took me out of my usual box just a bit with the southwest design. I'm more of a polka dots and frills kind of girl so this required a bit of creative research and a little more sketching than usual. I tried to justify a little zebra print but I don't think there are zebras in Aspen..ha. I love the color combination and how it all just ties together. I'm very happy with the design and I hope little Miss Sierra loves her new rocker.


I love how the mustard, deep red and turquoise just pop when placed together to give that true southwestern feel.


I do accept custom orders for hand painted furniture. I can paint a chair or piece that you already have or help you search for just the right piece. I work with you to create a design that you will love for many years to come. For custom orders, email me at sherjames87@hotmail.com.
