Eclectic original art

        This is an invitation into my world, into my imagination.  My artwork is always evolving and full of variety.  Ah, yes, the spice of life!  I keep things spicy by creating a multitude of different subjects in my work.  From realistic animal portraits to whimsical, cartoon - like dogs and cats, turtles, ducks, or any other pet. From sexy mermaids and celestial goddesses, to spiritual angels.  Fairies, merfolk, sea life, sea shells, landscapes, florals, tasteful never know what I might come up with next! You might find a tropical Hawaiian sunset, or a storm over the desert. A tiger in the jungle or a squirrel in the woods.   Keep checking back to see my latest work. Hopefully it is a pleasant surprise!

     My interests in art are diverse, as I enjoy creating through watercolors, acrylics, computer manipulated art, photography, sculpture and so much more. The subject matter is diverse as well. Nature always inspires me, as do the magical, mystical elements of life...real or imagined!

About me:  As an artist for over 20 years,  I have created a line of rubber stamps for scrapbooking, window displays for a natural history museum, illustrations for children's books, logos for businesses, and most recently I've done several murals for the local public school system, the San Bernardino County Museum, as well as in private homes.  I received a B.A. in Journalism from Humbodlt State University California where I also minored in art and environmental ethics.

Just finished a volunteer project for the County Museum.  They had a donation box that they wanted me to paint with insects, preferably walkingsticks and leaf bugs. So, here is what I came up with.  It is even interactive. When you drop a quarter onto the center of the flower, you hear a cricket chirping.

Feb. 6, 2009:    Here's some info regarding a book for which I did the cover art.

 I'm clearing out the piles of art that I never got around to listing!   So check out my auctions on eBay. I'm starting the bids very low.  Wouldnt' these little original paintings make a nice gift to tuck into a birthday or Valentine's day card?

Here's one of the many pieces of art that are looking for a new home:

Symbolic art:
        I will soon have a new painting for sale on Etsy. The spirals of the nautilus shell are symbolic of a spiritual journey and the cycles of life.  The jellyfish represent circumstances which seem negative but are positively beautiful, just like many things in life.  (photo coming soon)

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.

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.

    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 !
