pairing art & interior :: eat crow {two}

eat crow {two} is available, 16″ square – gallery wrapped deep sided birch wood panel. SAGE + LØVE.

Frances and I took the liberty to update this white interior with eat crow {two}, it seems to be an ideal location to perch this glorious black bird.

a blast of color :: pairing art and interior

{the image via habitually chic, from a thomasville showroom} Of course, I added one of my paintings to give the room a much needed lift.


This lovely piece is looking for a home, it’s still on the easel but should be read by next week. For more information contact Nadine below.


crazy busy :: creating

Over the last week I have been working late hours preparing for upcoming shows. Here’s a sneak peek of the new work available.  Don’t forget to stop by at the Commonwheel Art Festival in Manitou Springs this Labor Day weekend. Saturday through Monday, 10-5.

I have been working on a variety of different subject matter, here is a sampling of my black bird series.

Birds of a Feather, 19″ finished, framed. This piece is actually a mock-up of a larger piece I’m creating for a client. I occasionally work out imagery in a smaller scale before producing larger pieces on birch canvases which are resined rather than framed.  This piece actually was prematurely photographed, last minute I added more rhododendron to the upper edge of the piece. I’m thinking of keeping this piece for my own collection. We’ll see.

Crows in Blue, 19″ finished, framed. Papier Collé and Oil. I have been having a ball with these two black birds. They have captured my interest for months.

Black bird belt buckle. Resined for long lasting wear.

This octopus is from one of my latest pieces. Resined for a long lasting wear.

This belt buckle is from the same artwork as the octopus above. All belt buckles fit on a 1 and a 1/2 inch strap of which I carry in my online shop.

Coral and maps, what a fab combination.

The above buckles are available at my show in Manitou Springs, Colorado. I’ll have a hundred or so designs to choose from!

in the studio :: a portrait of a Bavarian woman


Having lived in Bavaria for several years, this portrait of a woman from Southern Germany (ca. 1520 -1525) has captivated me. I’m excited to be including her in my next papier collé.

> For years I have wanted to incorporate gold leaf in one of my pieces, I believe now is the time. stay tuned.
