Ready to set off on the journey of a lifetime, this little sailor has everybody wishing her "Bon Voyage", or 'Have a good trip' in less colloquial terms. Her red suitcase is packed, strapped and ready to go, and her sailor's uniform looks spotless! Red, white and blue stars shoot off of her hat in celebration of the new beginning. Will her destination be a tabletop or shelf with other Lori Mitchell characters?
Artist Lori Mitchell was born and raised in Marietta, Georgia. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Lori has always been inspired by children's themes and literature, old illustrations and toys.
