This painting has a meditative feeling, and depicts a woman deeply connecting with the natural world around her. She is attuned to the spiritual aspects of nature, and has a blissful look in her eyes. I made this painting while fasting on Yom Kippur, and listening to Krishna Das. This interesting combination produced a uniquely mystical painting and a feeling of new beginnings.

This drawing depicts a woman deep in meditation or prayer, connecting with the natural world around her. The trees and the sunrise are one with her, twirling themselves into the curls of her hair. This drawing was inspired by the Hebrew Sh’ma prayer: “Hear, Oh Israel: the Lord our God, the Lord is ONE!”, which I interpret as meaning that God is one, all is one, all is God!

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.

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.

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:
