AUTHOR BIO

Garden Party is a collection of charming sketches and quotes from artist Helen Dardik.

Dardik's pen-and-ink drawings are replicated from her sketchbooks and interspersed with quotes from classic novels such as Alice in Wonderland and The Secret Garden.

Dardik's illustrations of girl-fairies, flora, and fauna create a magical, dreamy world. Many of her characters are hybrid girl/plant creatures whose friends include a menagerie of cats, dogs, and other critters.

  • Her illustrations are predominantly black-and-white, with a limited palette of accent colors.
  • Aesthetic feels equal parts vintage Scandinavian modern folk art and Japanese Kawaii culture,
  • Girl-powered and nature themed

This is a charming, girl-centric book that is perfect for all gift opportunities, whether it's for a graduation or Mother's Day or simply for yourself.

The book's design is also a delight—it looks and feels like an actual sketchbook.

  • A perfect gift for teens, young adult women, mom-to-daughter, daughter-to-mom, friend-to-friend
  • Dardik's unique illustration style is at once elegant and whimsical.
  • Great for those who loved In the Garden of My Dreams: The Art of Nathalie Lété by Nathalie Lété. and How to Be a Wildflower by Katie Daisy
