Jessie Willcox Smith, Featured Artist


I have known of JWS since I was a teenager.
She has some very famous illustrations
of children with their mothers,
a child on the beach,
a child in the garden,
etc.


But my favorite Illustrations are the lesser known 
pieces.


Jessie Willcox Smith (September 6, 1863 – May 3, 1935) 
was a United States illustrator famous for her work in 
magazines such as 
for her illustrations for children's books.
She would often do portraits
of children on the request of their 
parents.


A couple of  great Good Housekeeping covers.



Illustrations for books.







Some of my favorite 
mother and child illustrations.







Tender moments with siblings or friends.





Love the little guy's face in this one. 
; )


And just some I like alot.






More of her works in this video.


So appreciate her uplifting 
and beautiful 
images.
Thank you, 
Jessie!

I hope you have enjoyed them too.

Have a 
wonderful
Wednesday,
my little
prancing
chickadees.


Love you!
