Prismacolor premier colored pencils on Strathmore toned paper, 8×10

Yellow Eyes

Here is an ink drawing of a cat that is up for adoption with the ASPCA. A local nonprofit asked selected artists to create a portrait of an animal available for adoption. Whomever adopts this gray and white feline will also get a portrait of the same animal. Here I drew the cat in ink, using Micron black pen. I used Prismacolor colored pencils to add color to the eyes. I may add a bit more ink for detail,but overall this piece is done and it needs to get to the gallery to be in display with the other works. Enjoy!

Chain Reaction

This is a recent piece that I created using pipe cleaners for a juried show entitled “Define: Color”  It was not granted into the show unfortunately, but the gallery curator loved it!  (they had a guest juror).

Paper dress

This dress was created for a local art show about the history of the building, now turned into artist studios, but once a shirt factory.  My grandmother worked in this building a long time ago, so it holds some special meaning to me.  I chose recycled materials, and created this dress out of brown packing paper and newspaper.  The dress was created on a very old dress form that my grandmother found at a garage sale.  This is currently on exhibit at The Shirt Factory Gallery until September 27, 2014.

For whatever reason, I cannot find pictures of the dress that I took before bringing it to the gallery, of course.  If I find them I will post them.  This is the picture at the gallery, which doesn’t show a whole lot of detail.

Monoprint from Recent Workshop

So a lot of the work that I show on here is related to Zentangles, but what you don’t know about me is that I enjoy creating A LOT of types of artwork. Here is a monotype that I created while participating in a workshop at a local art gallery. I used cheesecloth, the handle of a paint brush, Q-tips, and squares of cardboard to create this piece. It’s about 8 x10 in size. I haven’t worked in this medium for quite some time, but it felt really good to play around again. Enjoy!
