what an amazing journey it has been...
I'm pretty sure that 5 years ago I never could have imagined this little shop of my art and designs.
Art has always been a precious part of my life. But today I'm celebrating something a bit more layered and time bound.
Much of what you see here began as a grief project in 2013 painting daily for a year. One hour per day + a story for each painting. Animals have so much character they were likely servants to the cause. The project became a book The Art of Daily Cultivation. I continued to paint daily - which has culminated into 540 paintings. I will be releasing new collections from now until Christmas and learning the ropes of being a shop owner making customers happy. That part is very important to me.
And the Kimonos and scarves OH MY!
I was a silk painter for many years - in fact my first silk paintings happened on a goat farm in Northern Ca. while studying psychology and working as an assistant to a acupuncturist to pay the bills. My kimonos at the time were featured in Ornament Magazine after a gallery exhibit. The fact that this is coming full circle today with this shop thrills me to no end. I will release a collection a month of drapes, scarves, robes. Please let me know about your experience.
Goats, Llamas, Chickens, Dogs, Cats, Rabbits, Rabbits, Rabbits!
As for the animal prints, elephants and more dogs and cats are coming. Do you think dogs and cats would like to sleep on a bed with a mama elephant? I'm hoping.
Welcome to my new SHOP. Please always reach out for anything at all. I want happy customers full of love and joy on their walls and soft flows that make summer wonderful on bodies.
