In January of this year, Art & Design by Valerie Zombro Nusbaum entered into a licensing agreement with Stupell Industries of Johnston, Rhode Island. Nusbaum has given Stupell permission to reproduce some of her watercolor paintings onto large canvas and to use certain specially-created images in other mediums. Home decor items and wall art featuring her designs will be available this summer at Home Goods stores across the country.
Stupell Industries has been in business for over forty years, and their CEO discovered Nusbaum’s art online through her Etsy shop. Nusbaum and her husband, Randy, started Art & Design in 2000. They’ve sold their work at art shows and craft fairs all over Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. In addition to her prints of her original watercolors, they offer wood crafts, homemade potpourris and sachets, polymer clay novelty brooches, and one-of-a-kind jewelry designs. Etsy shop has been open since 2011.
