Jane would like to thank the illustrators, artists and designers who contributed work to her window:
Alyssa Zygmunt, who made the 36 white ceramic gnomes for me —
Gallery Street, who made the Swiss alps custom wallpaper from my own photo, and who also do all kinds of giclee printing —
Jason Polan, an artist who drew some art especially for the window —
Shawn Creeden, another artist whose drawing is featured —
20x200, where I got most of the inexpensive limited edition prints I used above the fireplace —
