Marketplace: Two-layer Masks and Matching Accessory Bags

Feline-themed double layer masks with a pocket for a filter and matching accessory bags with my feline artwork. And some flower designs too! I get the feeling we’ll need these for a while, so I decided to design my own mask with a few special features, and also printed accessory bags to match. I stocked […]

Bella Being Haunted By Herself

Well, I don’t know how I’d feel if things that looked like me were all over the house. But then, I’m not as cute as Bella! As always, I did not pose her. She must have felt their eyes on her… …or she wanted me to feature things with the Bella! design—accessory bags and dish […]

50% Off on All Original Art

My physical recovery from my hip replacement has been a breeze, but my financial recovery has been moving a little more slowly as I wait for show season to arrive. It did, along with COVID-19, and just as quickly all my events into June have been cancelled. I feel pretty safe from COVID-19, and I […]

It’s happening out there right now with the floor of the woods covered with spring ephemerals waiting their turn to bloom. I already see the summer wildflowers putting up […]

“In Afternoon Sun” Cabochon and Gift Box

We are looking forward to sunnier days. Mewsette and Mimi enjoyed the sun on the studio windowsill in June 2012, one of my favorite daily sketches combining ink brush pen to capture the deep shadows and bright highlights on the girls and watercolor spatters to capture the sun in the leaves of the maple tree […]

Dancing Woodland Sunflowers Votive

Typically my votives have just the design and some painted embellishments, but looking at my display of wildflower votives I felt the warm yellow wildflowers needed a little extra something. I pictured some burlap ribbon in autumn colors, some flower and leaf-shaped buttons and novelties and then some raffia too, and went to town with […]

A Tortie on a Tile, Kelly on the Windowsill

Back in 2012 when I was just a few months into my daily cat sketches I began experimenting with styles and media that I’d always wanted to use. One of these styles was the ink with watercolor wash style I’d seen so often on ceramic items like plates and vases, so as soon as I […]

February 2020 Personal Creative Challenge, Day 22: New Purse and Bag Designs

I’ve purchased premade tote bags of various sorts and imprinted on them for years, but I can’t always find consistent bags, or sizes I like, and I often can’t work out a design that I want. Last autumn I decided I was going to start making my own bags so that I could both be […]
