Artist Spot – Cayce Zavaglia

September 27, 2010

I love embroidery. I don’t do it myself, except a bit of bead embroidery. But, I adore it and those who are good at it.

This lady takes it to a whole new level.

I mean, seriously.

Artist Spot – Iris Design

March 9, 2010

For today’s Artist Spot we’re keeping it local!

Iris O’Connor is a very talented artist/photographer/mixed media artist based here in Dublin, Ireland.

She says about her work, “Creating something or painting or taking photographs has always been part of me and over the years I have experimented with a few different styles and techniques. I think I can say that for the moment I have found my ‘niche’ with photography and mixed media.  I especially like the term ‘mixed media’ as it can be anything you want it to be as long as you use a few ingredients together.”

I love it too! And I think you do a beautiful job Iris.

Can you tell I’m yearning for Spring?


Finally…

February 25, 2010

I purchased at least one print for the studio.

It’s not even one of the ones I was trying to decide between, I just happened upon it. But, I’m so glad I did because I just love it!

It’s called Schismata and it’s by Justice of  Photosynthetic on Etsy, a wonderfully talented photographer from Ipswich in the UK.

The description and inspiration Justice used helped to seal the deal for me.

“Another study of a man-made surface in a state of decay and deterioration under the forces of nature, ‘Schismata’ is dilapidated paint on steel, corrosion, a lichen bloom…geometric and organic in counterpoint. Striation, erosion, disintegration, reconstruction, protection, addition…and the process of destruction over which we ultimately have no control.”

Now I must go find the perfect place for it!
