Wolf Countess – another one of my favourites! Part of my “Wolves” series, this features an aristocratic girl (possibly a werewolf? a lycan? a vampire?) walking down the crumbling staircase of her ancestral home with her wolf protector. I love wolves! My own original acrylic painting. Continue reading →
“Queen of Bees” – one of my special debut paintings for FaerieCon 2012. The original itself sold at the show but I have prints & posters available! There is a slightly sinister feel to this Rococo style portrait of a beautiful queen and her bees. There are a lot of little bee details in here as well as historical portraiture references – she is wearing a replica of a Minoan bee pendant from ancient Crete, Napoleon's “Bee with Laurels” imagery, a lot of fun stuff packed in here. I also love the bees themselves – you can even see some honeycombs peeking out from underneath her skirts! This is my own original acrylic painting. Continue reading →
Kali! There is a lot of colour squeezed into this one! I've long been fascinated with Hindu artwork – devotional images of the beautiful gods and goddesses with their mysterious blue skin used to intrigue me as a child. Kali – possibly my favourite – an incarnation of the mother goddess – but a VERY powerful force to be reckoned with! She's often depicted with severed heads, wreaking her vengence on those who cross her…. I've taken a more subtle approach and have given her a garland of skulls. I've portrayed her in the traditional Daksinakali dancing pose, and this REALLY is a beautiful painting. REMEMBER – you can make this shirt for men/women/children/babies or make it long sleeved or a Tshirt or a tanktop – and even change the colour! All you need to do is click the “Select a Different Shirt Style” link by the sizing options – customize it just how you like it! It does look best either as shown, or in the dark solid colours, or in black, or in white. All shirts are available up to adults size 6X – just scroll through the Shirt Style options for your style choices in extended sizes! Continue reading →
The first in my new series of paintings called “Les Vampires” (which is French for The Vampires) – a new line of paintings that feature vampire beauties inspired by French rococo and baroque themes and aesthetics. These will also be part of my upcoming Vampire tarot/oracle deck I've been commissioned to work on, being published next year. This first painting is called “Les Vampires: Lanterne-Citrouille” (which means “pumpkin lantern”) she is simply lovely! And with the pumpkin of course there are subtle Halloween-ish overtones (added to with the inclusion of my black cat Azrael!). There are also some creepy details in the rococo sofa the two sit upon. I went with a lighter more rococo palette on this piece rather than the bold/jewel tones I normally would put on a vampire/halloween painting, and I think I rather like how it turned out. My own original acrylic painting. Continue reading →
The second installment in my Poisonous Beauties series – a series of works featuring portraits of faery creatures and various poisonous plants! #2 in this series of course features White Oleander – very poisonous indeed! My own original acrylic painting. Continue reading →
“Heart of Nails”! Some years I like to portray a darker, more cynical Valentine's Day in my paintings…. could be more accurate for some! This sultry little thing has feather black raven angel wings and a bright red Valentine's heart….. with a big old nail stabbed through it! My own original acrylic painting.
Anglerfish Submarine – one of my favourites I've painted to date (Matt's too). Some of you may have noticed my fascination with deep-sea abyssal sea creatures, as well as steampunk theming, and this painting combines them both. A beautiful violet eyed girl sits within the interior of an elaborate submarine which looks all the world like a clockwork anglerfish (lanternfish). Okay, it's kind of an odd painting, but there is something very striking and magical about it – kinda Jules Verne. Who doesn't love a steampunk submarine shaped like a giant fish? My own original acrylic painting. ******PLEASE NOTE – FEEL FREE TO CHANGE SIZES, PAPER TYPE, ADD A FRAME, MATTING, OR LEAVE IT AS A PLAIN PRINT!****** Continue reading →
Dragonling Garden II” is the title – the second of what will be a series of three paintings featuring night gardens, faery girls & their dragonling companions. This was a painting commissioned by the Bradford Exchange for my upcoming series of collector's plates. This is a BEAUTIFUL piece – a quiet moment with a fairy girl and her little purple dragon pet – sitting in a moonlit garden with twilight flowers blooming about her. The colours on this are GORGEOUS! I love it!! My own original acrylic painting. Continue reading →
A very atmospheric scene of a melancholy girl holding a lovely skull of what appears to be a unicorn. In the background you can see the famous medieval Unicorn Tapestry hanging on the wall (now in the Moyen Museum (Musee de Cluny) in Paris. This piece debuted at the Dragon*Con Art Show in 2012 and the original painting had a custom frame by Jasmine's husband Matt – a very unique shield shaped frame in a dark patina finish with a Jasmine fairy face carved into the ornamentation at the top. My own original acrylic painting.
