I saved this window pane from my aunts barn, along with a couple others. This was the first one I painted on. I wanted to represent day going into the night of darkness, then while researching ‘creepy romance’ I came across this poem by Cosondra Sjostrom. It fit perfectly. ‘Your absence would release all of the darkness inside of me’

‘Princess’ A Moment in Time. I always like to mix it up a little, and add a collage or some other form of mixed media that isn’t paint. I found these bits and pieces from the array of magazines I save, first finding the night piece on top, and then the girl, everything kind of flowed together after that. I love how it turned out.

‘The Witch’ the first piece I painted for the show, I love the female figure. I’m not sure what struck this inspiration, I knew I wanted a witch, and just ran with it.

‘Her Compass’ while researching what kind of witch I wanted to paint, I came across across a witches compass, I thought it was super creepy, and cool. I also saved this old frame from my aunts collection of stuff she didn’t want, and it fit perfectly.

Halloween is easily my favorite holiday, I was beyond excited when I was contacted to do this show, and it was a great turn out, with impressive creepy art. I just hope every year there happens to be a show I can be a part of. I love seeing what this side brings out of artists.

special thanks to Kaiti McDonough for all her hard work in making this happen, and to Grand River brewery for hosting.

‘Wow it’s what I pictured, but couldn’t describe. You just get it.’

What higher compliment could I possibly receive? My heart is overwhelming warm that I could capture exactly what she wanted for a piece that will be displayed on one of the most important days of someone’s life.

I painted a yin and a yang, each side representing the couples favorite color, the trees represent each of them coming together, rooting into each other. I put the green in the middle where they meet, to represent this. I was told the family on both sides love water, & are always around it, so I this is where I drew the color for the base. The antlers came from the brides reception inspiration, but I painted it to kind of hold everything together.

 
  
  

Three years ago I made my dear friend a painting for her birthday of her sweet pooch Luna! Just like Luna has helped her through hardships, she’s done the same for me. Watching how much my she loves her best friends, makes me so antsy and incredibly excited for the day I have my own pup. My heart feels over joyed to give her a gift that brings her such happiness!

Well she didn’t want the newest, ditsy, adorable, member of the family feeling left out, so here’s Ollie!

 

Just like most things I’ve done, I never thought I would be painting pooches! I truly love how they turned out, and the the joy it brings to my friends face just makes it all that more sweet.

We’ve all seen it, or own one, a generalized piece of ‘art’ from here or there, whatever store it is, someone else surely has it too. Well not this piece, well not anymore that is. Before and after.
