ITASCA, Ill., Jan. 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Enesco Gift and writer/artist Suzy Toronto have signed a licensing agreement to utilize her distinct images in a product line launching in mid-2014. Toronto is the creator of the popular line, Wonderful Wacky Women.
Toronto's artwork and inspiring style celebrate life, family and the special bonds between girlfriends. As part of the agreement, Enesco Gift will develop traditional gift formats including mugs, stationery, bags and totes featuring Toronto's artwork.
"Suzy's whimsy and artistic style fall right in line with a number of popular Enesco brands such as Our Name Is Mud from Lorrie Veasey and Children of the Inner Light by Marci," said Kathi Lentzsch, Enesco's chief merchandising officer. "Adding such an inspirational lifestyle brand to our current gift offering allows us to give retailers more options for their customers."
Toronto created her first wacky piece of art for her son, Chase, leaving it faceless so he could imagine what his birth mother looked like.
"With vibrant, colorful designs and funny sayings, Toronto's artwork aligns with Enesco's creative vision of introducing contemporary products that speak to today's consumer," Lentzsch added.
