The Buzz about Whirlybug

Another local artist you may want to check out is Whirlybug. Maria Scrivan picked the name because her interest in bugs and butterflies. She’s translated her childhood affection for drawing and her bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts into a 15 year career in design.

Commercial illustrations, storyboards, greeting cards and t-shirts are all part of her repertoire. Her work is an expression of her sense of humor, as you can see in her drawings of bunny slippers, birds with lunch boxes and ladybugs on scooters. Her printed work features acid-free archival watercolor paper and non-fading inks. Her work also features silkscreens and American-made cotton bags.

She has lived in Stamford for three years, but is not far from her hometown of Cos Cob. She’s no fan of Stamford in March, but enjoys local cycling, the llamas and otters at The Stamford Nature Center and Kit’s Thai Kitchen. Check out her work here and here.
