Friday Feature

In my perusing on Etsy this week, I came across these amazing paintings by Leslie DeRose Art. I love how the maps are worked into the negative space to create the bicycle. This one (being of Chicago) was my favorite, but there are many other wonderful paintings and prints available in the shop.
Definitely go on over and take a look!

I love it when artists get creative with recycled materials. It’s good for the earth and that “outside-the-box” thinking can’t hurt the brain either! This week I’m featuring this wristwatch made from a bicycle’s innertube from ReclaimedWreckage’s shop. Recycled and very cool looking!

There are many, many other items available that are good looking and good for the environment. Check them out!

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
