The Letter Nest is a series of watercolor alphabet paintings for children, created within four themes: animals, flowers, circus, and construction. Customers can purchase alphabet prints, or name and monogram prints comprising these watercolor letters. Each letter stands for the object it represents—A for Acrobat, B for Bicycle, C for Crocus—rendering these alphabets both delightful and educational. Their creator, Sally King McBride, worked for over 10 years at The Met, infusing these letters with the aesthetic vocabulary built over her time at the Museum.

    Sally drew inspiration from nearly 11 years working at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and from her graduate studies in art history­, in which the circus is central theme of modern art and performance. Here, Sally translates the joyful aesthetic of the circus—its color, radiance, and sense of surprise—to the portrayal of the Alphabet.

  • Printed from an original painting by Sally King McBride, the Flower Alphabet is a veritable watercolor garden. At 16 x 20", and with a vibrant color palette, it makes for a unique baby or birthday gift. 

    Inspired by the beauty of her late grandmother’s rose garden, Sally imagined the letters of the alphabet taking shape as the flowers she'd paint: A for Anemone, J for Jasmine, M for Magnolia, V for Violet. In this way, young viewers can enjoy learning each flower as well as the letters they represent.
