March of the Tin Soldiers
A big share of my surrealistic bent comes from the influence of Walt Disney on my childhood. Lady and the Tramp, Babes in Toyland, the Junglebook… Disney made me dance and dream.
Such a fun picture!

Lovely Things: Latin American Female Artists
Without getting too personal, abstract, or cliché, I have been experiencing a period of self-reflection and growth these days that I think is reflected in what I’m currently studying. I’ve been completely absorbed by the images of some modern female Latin American artists as of late, partially because of this excited state I’m in is somehow manifested in their works. These women are fantastic and provocative. They inspire and intrigue. And they have entered my life at the perfect time.

“Kappa” A Surrealist Piece by Dhear In Mexico City
The multifaceted Mexican artist Dhear is one of the most interesting exponents of what we could call Mexican Street Art Surrealism. His art production is diverse, ranging from street art to sculpture and influenced by literature, Sci-Fi movies, nature and illustrators like Moebius.
In this new mixed media piece, man and nature seems to melt into one in a very poetic way, colour playing a huge role and highlighting the process. Beautiful little piece, that’s for sure.
Love the mixed media!

Can’t really think of much to say … My new dress has butterflies on it? Why does my hair still photograph red when it’s purple?
I do now have to go and re-arrange the living room. I’ve had to move the settee, a folding exercise bike, weights, yoga mats, a bean bag, a sheep skin rug and various small tables to take this.
I’m aware that list makes us seem like exercise nuts. We’re not.
Lots of effort but great photo!

Celestial Bodies is by the Mexican artist Octavio Ocampo and in the style of Surrealism. The artist describes it as his metamorphic style. I find his work extraordinary and mesmerizing - the longer you look the more you can see in it.
Yes, intricate and beautiful!

This is quite a recent self-portrait I did in my home town of Albany. It really tested my Photoshop skills….and I’ve barely used it since.

Work In Progress- Leaping Into the Unknown
I’ve been very lax about posting updates lately and I know that is a weakness of mine, but here is something new! I’ve been working on this piece for well over a month but just started the acrylic painting portion last week.

This was a subtractive drawing I did years ago. I drew from a still life that the teacher had put together. It’s only now, after I have experienced having to draw from terrible still lifes, that I really appreciate the effort put into making such a strange set up.

‘Huge Woman Contemplating in the Desert’
One of the biggest paintings I’ve done to date got out. 70x100cm; 27,56×39,37in. Oil on canvas. The painting portrays a huge female figure contemplating. The figure stands for an open and constantly working mind, the size of it shows what it is capable in each of us while the female sex was chosen because of its ability to give ‘birth’. The desert is a symbol of non-conformity which ‘big’ mind’ tend to create, usually leaving ‘contemplator’ alone though.
