This adorable hat was made with soft breathable yarn, for lots of springtime and summer fun! The flower is sewn into the hat with a large decorative silver button. Click on the image below for sizing + details, or click here to view my etsy shop.

Some of my sexier “wearable paintings” will be featured in a NC fashion show in April. See banner for details. Click here to view the Facebook page for the event. And click here to view more of my artwork.


An exciting new way to display artwork! My “wearable paintings” so far have been done as necklaces, corset-like bodices, a few dresses, and this garter belt. I really like the garter belt idea so I think I’ll make more, with different types of designs. Click on the picture to see more images of this garter belt, or check out my website: OriannaStudios.com

This frilly dress is also an original painting! It is one of the “Wearable Paintings” that I currently have up for sale in my shop. Click the image to see more info about the dress. The model, makeup artist, and photographers were all awesome and I gave them credit at the bottom.

One of my newest Wearable Paintings is now up for sale in my shop! I love the vibrant turquoise and deep reds in this one, and it reminds me of a burlesque performer.

I am very pleased with the recent fashion photo shoot I did with Black Horse Studio Photography at Gateway Gallery in Winston Salem. The models, Asrai and Heather, were both amazing! Not to mention Christine Geiger, who did the AWESOME hair + makeup for the shoot. I’d been wanting to do something like this for a while, with my “wearable paintings” in a gallery space, and the models holding up picture frames like they are artwork on display. Here are just 2 of my favorites from the shoot:

This was a pretty fun shoot. I’d never worked with a pregnant model before, and it gave me lots of ideas. I wanted to put her in one of the “wearable paintings” but all of them were dramatically not the right size. So we did a shoot with the super long sleeves and lots of bright colors. When I eventually get pregnant, I will definitely have some fun times doing art and fashion photography!
