New Prints Hot Off the Insta Feed!!

Whew…so update from the art cave!!

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, (if not, do feel free, I love all my awesome friends there!) you may have noticed a bit of a new style.

I’ve been doing a lot of pencil realism work as of late, and have added a NEW PAGE featuring my growing collection there. I’ve also added loads new available prints to my ART SHOP…so by all means feel free to mosey over there. Anything not already listed, you can happily purchase by sending me an email:
Art is all about challenging yourself with new endeavors and evolving as an artist, so I’ve enjoyed playing with these new portraits. Don’t fret, changes don’t mean abandonment, and my lovely Tinies and previous long-lashed characters are NOT abandoned…these pencil ladies are now just added to the family. 😉

Black and White Ink

Black and White Ink

Shadows speaking louder than words.
Night and day lose meaning.
Whispers in the grey.
Hinting a secret.

White. Arresting.
A look.
A crease. A fold.

Casting sweet envelope
for emotion.

Black and white drawing first shared on my Instagram page HERE.

The Gift of an Open Mind

Freedom is an interesting thing. We know it’s concept and we get the gist of it all, but many of us are busy functioning amidst our daily routines and we think of freedoms only on their grandest of scale. We are grateful for the rights we have living in a free Country, but we don’t think about the smaller freedoms.

A Rabbit Hole Exists

Running takes you away, into another world.
One you control.

Here, time is warped.
Shifted, ticking excruciatingly slower or insanely, much too fast.
Tick. Tick. Tick.
The watch can be a cruel master.

No one can truly see this world…
except for you.
The agony of the inner war waging,
workouts and races, outsiders don’t see.
They don’t FEEL.

But we do. Runners feel,
feel things others can’t imagine…
or would just rather choose not to.
