One art form I sell on eBay is that of A.C.E.O.'s
If you have never heard of ACEO's, here is a brief explanation.
ACEO's-(Art Cards, Editions and Originals ) fit in a standard trading card sleeve, or can be matted and framed. They are a format of artwork which can be any medium from watercolor, to oils, prismacolors, ink, or even fabric art. But they are always 2 1/2 inches x 3 1/3 inches. They are an affordable way to own original art. Search ACEO on EBAY to see a variety of Art Cards from talented artists.
The following are examples of my Mixed-media Pop-up A.C.E.O.'s. They measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches when folded.
If you look closely through the door and window of this scene you will find a Dragon Parade is entertaining the crowd in ChinaTown. A Siamese cat sleeps on a rug made of authentic Chinese Paper. Lanterns hang in the window above a golden Buddha. Firecrackers hang by the doorway.
The picnic basket below opens to reveal a Fourth of July celebration complete with fireworks and shimmering stars.
I enjoy creating fantasy scenes and characters such as mermaids and faeries, as well as what I call Solar Goddesses.

"Maren, Reclining" 18 x 20 Acrylic"Maren, Reclining" This painting depicts a mermaid in shallow water. The two worlds of air and water represent reality and fantasy. The bubbles lifting up from the water into the sky represent the merging of both worlds. Hopefully this painting brings inspiration and encouragement through the idea of surrendering to the ebb and flow of life whereby dreams can become reality.

Commissioned Pet Portraits
Commissioned portrait done in acrylic paints.
I also sell One of a Kind (OOAK) sculptures as well as larger paintings on canvas. I am now accepting commissions, so if you have an idea for a painting let me know! I'll create for you!
Another creative avenue I'm exploring is what I call Fantasy Photographic Portraits. I'll use your photo to put your child, pet, or loved one into a variety of scenes, such as a landscape with waterfall and castle. I can make your little girl into a mermaid, fairy, or princess. Your boy could become an elf, dragon-slayer, or adventurer. Any idea you have is a possibility. These digitally enhanced and stylized photos can then be made into a great range of products such as pillows, t-shirts, tiles, posters, tote-bags and more. Just ask me !
