I'm pretty sure I missed the deadline to submit these to the book that I wanted them to be included in... which is a total bummer and not something I normally do. ((insert sad face here)) Ahhhh... but such is life. The scans of these pieces are way off in color due to the neon quality of the thread.
This St. Pete doll was designed to remember all our favorite things about St. Petersburg, FL: the city skyline, citrus girl sunshine, palm trees, Tampa Bay, sun rays and our pelican mascot! Dolls are for sale in my etsy store and you can contact me for wholesale orders! Evenoddgallery@gmail.com (727) 215-3605
I never knew fabric design would make me so excited... I am teaching myself how to make a repeating pattern, fabric design and computer aided editing. I have used Spoonflower for years to print my drawings/paintings of dolls to make into limited edition rag dolls---minus the rags. This is my first attempt at yardage and being a "designer." I do everything old school and in general, I'm lacking any design or computer related education. So taking my hand drawn and scanned work... I'm making this:
This Saturday, April 9, 2016, from 7pm to 11 pm come out to the Black Amethyst Tattoo Gallery for an amazing show of art! My piece was inspired by a childhood tape I used to listen to on the way to school, the tape case had Degas art on it. One side was Swan Lake and the other side was Sleeping Beauty. My piece is colored pencil on wood.
This month my son and I left plush, rag doll, bunnies! We left them in downtown St. Pete near the courthouse for people to find! So far no one has emailed or let us know via social media that they found and adopted one!
I am working on mail art today and decided to answer a call from England for "urban landscapes." My pieces are a collage of Syrian destruction photos with the addition of my own drawings. I hope the images speak for themselves. The state of world affairs saddens me. I am thankful every day to be able to hug my children.
I had the pleasure of being invited to be a part of this show! It's a group show with everyone's work connected to make surreal creatures. The opening is this Saturday night at the Morean Art's Center and I hope you can make it! My piece is the one in the center--inspired by the limpkin and the apple snails that they dine on.
