new art + a blog feature

i thoroughly enjoyed making this piece! you can't really tell from the photo i took late last night but each of the elements is built up with layers of crumpled tissue paper under the top paper design. so the house, the dog and each of the people has a textured 3-d effect. it is so cool and i'm very pleased with it!! i'll list in on etsy soon. in the meantime, if you're interested leave a comment or e-mail me.

It just blows my mind that you can create such beautiful things. I have no artistic talent whatsoever. Your work is so lovely.

I like both of these pieces. I could tell that the first one was three d by looking at the dog. He really stands out in the phototgraph of the piece. Very nice.

Oooo yes, very charming with the warm glow and script in the background. The little figures in the top one reminds me of a much loved story book I had as a child.

Love the happy looks on the faces of the couple and their dog. Your art is the kind that is always affirming and cheerful. That gives it great appeal to everyone. It must be a reflection of your own place in life right now.
