Magnet Works, Ltd. Updates Spring/Summer Products with Help from Gift Industry's Top Licensed Artists

St. Louis - Magnet Works, Ltd., a leading provider of indoor and outdoor home décor accessories, debuted its Spring/Summer 2013 catalog with over 90 new designs, including an all-new Pets Unleashed collection by artist Ginger Oliphant. The new pet designs feature a bold, graphic style and combine a variety of pet breeds with fun, inspirational phrases.

Sue Todd, Magnet Works President and Art Director, said she chose to work with Oliphant because her art "can tug at your heartstrings and put a smile on your face at the same time." Todd said, "Ginger is so good at capturing the cuteness and personality of each breed with the style of her art and with just the right words of wisdom or inspiration."

In addition to Pets Unleashed, Magnet Works has expanded its Expressions line with designs from two new artists - Stephanie Ryan and Susan Black. "The serenity of the garden... the warmth and love of the home... these sentiments are near and dear to Stephanie and Susan. That's why they're so beautifully expressed in their art," said Todd.

"Pets Unleashed, Expressions, and the other new designs from Magnet Works will be available at the winter markets, but that's not all they will be introducing.

Curt Todd, CEO of Magnet Works, reported, "We've got a big surprise for our retailers this winter. It's going to be one of the most important announcements in our company's history."
