Fading Memory

"Fading Memory"
acrylic on birch panel
4.75 x 4.75 inches framed to 7.5 x 7.5 inches

Here's my little foxy-corn for tonight's Unicorn show opening in NY at Gristle Gallery.
The show was curated by the very talented Zoë Williams, and a portion of the proceeds will go to saola (real life unicorns of Laos and Vietnam!) conservation efforts.

This little baby foxy-corn is surrounded by poppies, which represent forgetfulness, oblivion and evanescent pleasure in Floriography, the Victorian era Language of Flowers.

I will also have the above two mini paintings, pins, and Häxa tank dresses available for purchase at the show, part of the proceeds also going to the saola! 

The show opens tonight at 7 and will be online as well in the coming days.

Postcard Drawings

Here's my three postcards for the PostcArt show at Avant Garde Tattoo and Art Gallery in Milano, Italy.
For this show, each artist was to make a piece on a postcard from their hometown, or where they live or identify with.  I chose three postcards from Buffalo, New York, which is my hometown and current town.
I drew a few animals that live in our area; ones that I see often in our yard!

Each postcard in the show is available for only 50 euros ($57) and is available HERE .

The North Remembers

"The North Remembers"
acrylic on birch panel
5 x 7 inches framed to 8 x 10 inches
available HERE
or call (415) 796-3774 for purchase inquiries

Here's my Game of Thrones tribute for "Lord of the Thrones" show, opening tonight at Spoke Art in San Francisco.  For this show artists were asked to make a piece based on the on-screen adaptations of Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, or both.
Being a fan of both, I had to go with GoT because I'm a pretty big nerd about it!
I've read all the books, own the blue rays and my dog is named...Ghost.
So yeah, it was a no-brainer.

And that's who I decided to depict in this piece; my favorite direwolf, Ghost.  The three-eyed raven (the bird, not the man) is perched on his back, and they are surrounded by weirwood leaves, from the Stark's godwood forest.

A Spell for Strength

"A Spell For Strength"
acrylic on birch panel
5 x 7 inches framed to 9.5 x 11 inches

Here's my piece, "A Spell for Strength", which sold at the "Felis Catus" art show last weekend in Michigan's Future Gallery.

This witchy cat casts her spell for strength with fennel, lovage and thyme.  These plants mean force, courage, bravery and strength in Floriography,  the Victorian Language of Flowers.

Salem's Spells for World Domination

"Salem's Spells for World Domination"
acrylic on birch panel
8 x 10 inches framed to 13.5 x 15.25 inches

"Idiot Box 2" opens at Gallery 1988, featuring works based on TV shows.

Here's my "Salem's Spells for World Domination", based on Salem Saberhagen from Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
The painting has Scot's thistle, which symbolizes retaliation, vengeance and Never forget in Floriography, the Victorian era Language of Flowers.

Such A Sad Love

"Such A Sad Love"
acrylic on birch panel
5 x 7 inches framed to 6.5 x 8.5 inches
email for purchase inquiries

Here's my piece for "30 Years Later", opening tonight at Gallery 1988 in LA.
My painting is based not only on Labyrinth's Sir Didymus and Jareth (one of my favorite childhood/teenage movies) but a tribute to my fallen hero, David Bowie.
His recent death was such a blow, even though nothing can ever touch his legacy, and the impact that he made on my young life.

Sonic and Tails

"Sonic and Tails"
acrylic and metallic acrylic paint on wooden pixel heart
12 x 12 x .75 inches
available HERE

For "Pixel Hearts" show at Gallery 1988, curated by Chogrin.

For this show, all the artists were given an identical wooden pixel heart canvas and asked to create a piece inspired by video games.  For mine I chose Sonic the Hedgehog and Tails because I really wanted to recreate them in my style.

Truth be told, I tried Sonic once at a friend's house as a child, but really I was a Nintendo girl!  Nevertheless it was really inspiring to recreate these characters and the heart panel was a fun, challenging space to work on, and very high quality.

The whole show looks awesome together!
