Throwback Thursday: Claudia

Today I’m going deep into the archives for a piece that I did over twenty years ago. It’s actually really cool to look back and this piece ties directly to someone who I’ve found incredibly inspirational even though I will probably have the pleasure of meeting them in person. This piece was a project for…

Exploring Inspiration

This mask my very first piece of wearable quilled art, and since today is Fat Tuesday, or Mardi Gras, I felt that it was fitting to bring this little bit of experimental art back out. About seven years ago, my family and I took a road trip out to South Carolina over Thanksgiving Break with…

New Art: Unbroken

This piece is the third piece I’ve completed using a pallet knife and minimal paper quilling. I’m really enjoying the processe of painting with a pallet knife. It’s taken some adjustment in terms of skill and technique and I’m learning that I need to have a lot more patience with the process, but what is…

New Art: Quilled Wolf

Quilled Wolf, 18×24 Quilled Paper and Acrylics on Canvas I started this piece back in October of 2018. When I set out to create this wolf, I never thought it would take on such a long endeavor. From the moment my brush touched the canvas, it quickly became apparent that this piece was going to…

New Art: I Got My Eye On You

Prior to completing Wild Horses, at the beginning of the year I had a strong urge to start another piece. At the time, I currently had two pieces already in process, Wild Horses and a quilled wolf, and I hesitated to start yet another but the voice and vision in my head was too strong…

Featured Art: Seductress

Continuing on with Featured Art is the second piece in my Three Sisters trilogy, Seductress. She’s a little willy and unpredictable, but also sweet and a lot of fun to have around. Of the three sisters, she’s the youngest, and the most prone to get into trouble. When I created these pieces, they were telling…

Featured Art: Enchantress

Enchantress was the first piece in my Three Sisters collection, a series of three portraits I created. For this piece, I played with a watercolor effect using acrylics and a limited color pallet. The hair has become a signature technique that I’ve used in a number of pieces. Enchantress holds a special place in my…

Featured Art: Siren Song

This is by far one of my favorite pieces I created this past year. Inspired by the Sirens of Greek mythology, this lady had lured in many admirers all though so far no one has been able to snap her up. She is currently on display at 300 Suns Brewing in Longmont, and is available…
