New Art: A Sneak Peek

I'm in the beginning stages of a new body of work called Boxes, and when I opened an old sketchbook this week, I had 3 empty boxes drawn out! I was taking notes and doodling and decided to fill the boxes with art. It was only after that I realized I had drawn 3 more concepts for my series. I will be building boxes (original, right?) and filling them with art. Each box will highlight an aspect of my psyche, my neurodivergent gifts, or experiences I've had. Titles include Dark Night of the Soul, In the Hole, and now I think at least 2 of these will make the cut. The middle sketch I think will be felted wool for the center sphere and handspun wool for the vines grabbing on, and the right-side sketch will be called Stretched, and it will also be felted wool. I'm going to keep these under wraps except for these emails, so enjoy being a VIP!

I am a brand artist. I believe art has the power to help us express our most true selves to the people only we were designed to reach. I do commissioned art using my intuitive and empathic gifts in a collaborative process where the art deeply reflects the heart of the collector. Branded art specifically showcases the super-creative entrepreneurs’ one-of-a-kind offerings in a way that makes sense and feels natural. Respond to this email to talk to me about your brand for free.
