Before and after upcycled poster

Had a poster with great colors, I couldn't bare to toss it...so I used it as a canvas.  What do you think?

Beautiful Forest!

Our forest is bursting bursting bursting with amazing discoveries! We have 22 acres...but really, if you stand in one spot and just observe what's around your feet you'll see a galaxy of wondrous plants.  Here are a few :)
Scarlet Trillium! 
Fern babies! 
Jack in the pulpit!

Juried gallery show!

Late last year I began sketching and painting.  One of my goals was to build up the nerve to enter a juried gallery show.  And yesterday that's just what I did! Here are some picts of my entry (from roughly the beginning to the final entry)  The theme of the show was "self portrait". I'm not totally sure She looks like Me, but I think the symbolism through out the painting is pretty accurate.  

I've uploaded a process video to my YouTube channel...you can check it here 
Thanks for peeping!
I will find out in a couple of weeks if I got into the show. Painty fingers crossed!

Arts in Bloom Weekend

Wow wow wow! Had a super time this weekend participating in an open studio tour in Steuben County NY. It was my first year as a demonstrating artist and I feeling inspired and grateful.  Here are some picts from the event :)  Please check out Arts In Bloom!  Our stop was at the ever magical Beulahland in Cameron Mills NY. Art, birds, vegan snacks, and lots and lots of love.
My mini paintings and such  
 
Some of my jewelry and prints 


We're all a work in progress, right?! :)

Birds' nests!

I am love love loving these!

Studio update!

What a great weekend! It was finally warm enough to work out on the balcony. Woot woot!!! I'm still prepping for Arts in Bloom the weekend of April 25 & 26. Here's a peek!


Seems like I'm really into circles right now! :) All pieces are up for adoption, please make contact for custom orders and such xoxox


 I'm calling this design (above) "Dream Cre8tors". Sort of like dream catchers, but more active...we can create our dreams!! I think no steampunk outfit should be without one!
These (above) are called "Worlds Under Glass" ...I could stare into them all day long.

Weekend Picts

I live in Western NY state, and it's still snowy and cold, which means I have no excuse not to work in the studio next to the fire all weekend. Here are some sneaky peeks of what I was up to:

Fun with Fire!

My local art guild has a juried show coming up with the theme "Fire" so yesterday I played with matches and fabric and beads and thread. Here's what came of my efforts:
