About The Letter Nest: Sally King McBride is a New York City-based artist and illustrator. Before launching The Letter Nest, she worked for over ten years at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and studied art history at Brown and Columbia Universities. Her watercolor alphabets derive from a rich artistic vocabulary built over the course of these experiences; her motivation comes from two young sons still learning their ABCs! Her work—both delightful and educational—will bring joy to any nursery, bedroom, or playroom.
