Artists dream of licensing contracts and finding someone to represent them — Len Burton has realized that dream with his West Coast lighthouse images.

A few months ago Angi Christian and Roger Thompson were buying bolts of fabric at Trends, a twice a year fabric show by E.E. Schenck in Portland. Roger commented that the lighthouse fabric was all East Coast and the seller said they didn’t know any West Coast artist. Roger and Angi said, “We do!”

This was the beginning of a relationship between fabric designer Elizabeth Shnayder of Elizabeth’s Studios in New Jersey and Len Burton of Brookings.
