Chicago Show this Friday

I will be exhibiting three of my pieces at the Black Cloud Gallery in Chicago this weekend through the month of February. The opening for the Art Bazaar show is this Friday the 3rd from 7-10pm. The gallery is also participating in the Chicago Second Fridays event on February 10 from 6-10pm. Or of course, you could always stop by during normal business hours.

New Artist Interview


Head on over to "A Picturebook Life" blog and read my latest artist interview. There are also many other interesting and inspiring featured artists the Storytellers series.

The Rabbit Box



This is a altered art, collage, wood box. The entire surface of the box has been altered with paint, collage and pen and ink. A cute little rabbit adorns the top.
You can find this piece in my Etsy shop.

New Nersury Art



I have begun designing nursery art. Above are the first three of my designs which you can find on Etsy. All are available as 8x10" art prints. The last image can be personalized with your child's name in the bubble.

More Art With Folk Flowers

 Two new prints which feature my collage folk flowers. They can be found here and here .


 Which then brings me to the two collage, cat sculptures that I just completed which also feature my folk flowers. This cat can be found here.
 

Bunny Rabbit II


The second bunny rabbit sculpture of the year has been posted.  You can find it here.
This rabbit is a little different though. I usually use found images of flowers from antique paintings for these sculptures. This time, the flowers have been completely made by me.
Remember the post I did earlier about the folk flowers I was making? Well they have made an appearance on this rabbit. I am actually finding many uses for these little hand-made flowers. Stay tuned for cat sculptures and new prints featuring these.

Ornate Framing Option Now Available



I now have in my Etsy shop the option to have your prints framed. The frames I have available at the moment are these black, ornate frames. This particular frame fits a 8x10" art print, but other sizes are available. You can find more info about this new framing option here.

Introducing the Folk Bunny Card

These cards are blank on the inside. Larger prints of this design are coming soon. You can find these cards here.

A Project In Process

Thought I would share with all of you a little of what I've been working on as of late. What you are looking at are little collage flowers and leaves. All made of individually cut pieces of paper. Not entirely sure how I will use these yet, but I have been enjoying the process.

Rabbit Sculptures Are In!




I hope that everyone had a safe and happy holiday.

I have been asked many times when I will have more rabbit sculptures again. I had originally thought it would be as late as March, but since this is going to be such a great new year, they have happily arrived earlier than expected.
These are found rabbit sculptures that I have completely altered with paint, pen and ink, and collage work. Each is a unique one-of-a-kind piece. This guy here is the first of the available sculptures and he has already been posted on Etsy. I will be posting more of these with different surface designs and different rabbit shapes as they are completed. I also welcome custom requests, but please get your requests in early as these rabbits are usually only available through March.
