The book ADORABLY WICKED is once again available, this time in in color. It includes color paintings and pen and ink drawings. The images are from my art series entitled Creepy Things.
At the end of 2018, and into 2019, I began a new series–cute and creepy. It’s influenced by the horror genre–as much of my work is. Back in the ’80’s, while in college, I studied children’s illustrations in my commercial art classes. In addition, I studied children’s literature. The two studies intersected naturally.
The Pop Surrealism movement caught my attention several years ago. When working on The Mad Hattery with Marge Simon, several of my paintings made an attempt to capture the “big eyes” of that genre. I believe that my studies of German Expressionism also play a role in this series, giving my work a less technical feel.
None of the originals are for sale online. However, prints, greeting cards and postcards of these images will be available at my gallery at RedBubble and at various art shows I will be part of in the future.
On November 4th, 2018, I attended the last night of this three-day art party at Eunoia
The exhibit included a unique selection of beautiful art. It’s a wonderful space in New England, located in the Warwick area, at 275 West Natick Road.
