“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 →

Part of my Dragonlings series – faeries with baby dragons – Sienna Dragonling is painted in lovely earth tones and (appropriately enough) siennas, ochres and browns. She appears softly lit, and thoughtful. My own original acrylic painting.
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 →
