  • All Further Communication Will Go Through My Attorney

    Someone threatened to sue me for telling the truth. What a joke. Everyone knows lies eventually grow mold and stink – truth never does – that’s why it always comes out on top and outlives any lie.

    This is a 4×6 acrylic and ink on a vintage photo from around 1930s.

  • My Inner Child Wears Fuzzy Bunny Slippers

    $_12I’ve done a couple of self portraits of my inner child – this one is the closest I think.

    She holds a skull for my totally morbid sense of humor, her hair is every color mine has been, I always try to have some lipstick on, and of course I freakin’ LOVE to eat so she’s got a great bag of Inner Child Chow. Fuzzy bunny slippers are cuz i like my tootsies WARM.

    The Original is Sold 🙂

  • Lost Gods – How the Owl Goddess Came to Be

    10892008_10152461946091020_1543544805082196444_n $_12 (31)So I had this vintage photo and her eyes had been scribbled out and her face penciled over with random lines – in short – someone didn’t like her.  I thought since I don’t know the history and I thought she had really fierce eyes from what I could see, I  would turn her into a forgotten goddess with fierce eyes and then she became an owl.

  • My Friend Used to Get in Trouble With her Mother Because She Looked Like Her Estranged Father

    $_12 (29)With a friend’s permission, I’ll relate the story behind this artwork. I have a friend and her parents had a majorly unfriendly divorce. So unfriendly that her father finally took a job that took him allllll the way from NY to Alaska so he wouldn’t be coming around so much because the mother was so acrimonious about things.

    My friend  only saw her father during the summer and when he could afford to fly her in for the holidays. And when she was home, her mom would get a little too deep into a bottle of wine and start getting angry at my friend for looking like her father. After a few years of swimming in this, Mom gave up drinking and found hobbies that made her happy. Wound up meeting a great guy too.

    My friend said now that she’s an adult, been through a divorce herself (kept it friendly for the kids), she can let any animosity she had for either of her parents over the situation go. She said her mom and dad actually manage to have civil interactions all these years later and are Facebook friends. 😀

    This artwork is acrylic painted on a vintage photo from around 1910-ish and sealed under varnish.
    The size is 3.5 x 5.5-inches.
    Price is $25 with free  shipping within the USA. SOLD
    If you live outside the U.S., just write me and I’ll be happy to give you a quote for shipping. It is generally  under $9 to most places.

  • Baby Girl in a Purple Hat with a Ferret

    $_12I love ferrets. I’ve wanted to add one to our family for a long time but I read they tend to get adrenal disease and insulinoma after the age of 3 in their around 8-year life span.
    I love their curiosity and their little hands.
    When I painted her I got inspired by Dandy Mott from American Horror Story, and his front forehead curls. 🙂

    She is 5.5-inches by 7.5-inches and is done with acrylic paint directly on a vintage photo.

    This piece is sold and lives in a private collection.
