Slovak Bride

I am intrigued by my heritage and for a while now have been wanting to explore Slovak lore and myths, traditional costumes and general history in my work... I think there is endless richness in studying ones genealogy and looking over your shoulder at those people who gave you those freckles or that red beard or this penchant for spicy foods.

This is just a little drawing of a bride. Hopefully the first of many more pieces celebrating Slovak culture to come.

On a related note, Blind Loves (Slepe Lásky) is a fantastic little film from Slovakia that I caught at the Cleveland International Film Festival last night. I highly recommend it to everyone!

Hello, Sunshine.

Dreaming of camping and picnics and walks in the woods.
Waiting for the warmth to catch up.

I dedicate this one to a friend of mine going through some rough times.
Don't forget to watch the sky! Everything will be okay.

Happy, happy, happy Spring!

If it's warm enough where you live, enjoy a little picnic and smile at the sunshine.
Happy Friday!

So pleased to announce: My brother launched his Cross Stick Boomerang Etsy shop! Hooray!
His xRangs are made of lovely wood and are great fun to throw and catch - the perfect accessory for a Spring picnic or a Summer cook out. I'm his lucky sister, so I have a few of my own already ;)He's a super talented guy with a knack for the unusual and exceptional... Go buy!

Birthday Party!

The invitation I made for my fiancé's 25th.
He loves gore films and birthday cake! And bowling.

(Based on a vintage bowling poster)

Three new prints in the shop!

Fancy Mia

Three commissioned prints for a little girl who is turning 5. They're based on the posters I made to advertise my Gallery Show. Her name is hidden somewhere in each print :)
