Spotlight on: Circles and Squares

Meegan Nolan Cuzick and David B. Cuzick are a husband and wife team of artists that design a novel line of hand-screenprinted T-shirts. 


Many days I have worked side by side with them at the Grove Arcade Portico Market in Asheville while we sell our wares.  I always enjoy the expressions on the faces of the people who pass by as they see the images on the shirts.  Scenes of a child jumping off a swing, a young fisherman unaware that he is reeling in the Creature from the Black Lagoon as his friends run away,  a child being lifted to safety by a great-horned owl, or a huge-eyed bush baby delight young and old alike.


Their images are of two types :  David designs the silhouettes, whereas Meegan mostly designs animals with a few exceptions,  like her Dandelions. 

Cicada Wings

Their designs are available in men, women and children's sizes.

Bush Baby

 Meegan says, "I am inspired by nature a lot ( I guess that goes without saying). I find the "freakish" parts of nature and repetitive patterns especially fascinating. David often uses his dreams and childhood memories as inspiration. His designs are a little more metaphorical while most of mine are almost like portraits."

"We are both super inspired by our children, of course."  Which is understandable.  Their children are two of the cutest kids you could find.

"We want our products to be as earth friendly as possible." To that end, most are on organic cotton and either made in the USA or Fair Trade. And their choices of color are wonderful.

Many of their designs are also available as art cards.

Meegan adds "We are happy to have found a medium that makes our artwork accessible to people that otherwise might not be able to collect art."

 Circle and Square products are available at many fine stores and galleries as well as online through etsy.
