Artist Spot – Iris Design

March 9, 2010

Dawanda Shop | Website She says about her work, “Creating something or painting or taking photographs has always been part of me and over the years I have experimented with a few different styles and techniques. I think I can say that for the moment I have found my ‘niche’ with photography and mixed media.  I especially like the term ‘mixed media’ as it can be anything you want it to be as long as you use a few ingredients together.” I love it too! And I think you do a beautiful job Iris. [caption id="attachment_1571" align="aligncenter" width="375" caption=" Oh I do want to live beside the seaside...

It’s called Schismata and it’s by Justice of  Photosynthetic on Etsy, a wonderfully talented photographer from Ipswich in the UK. The description and inspiration Justice used helped to seal the deal for me. “Another study of a man-made surface in a state of decay and deterioration under the forces of nature, ‘Schismata’ is dilapidated paint on steel, corrosion, a lichen bloom…geometric and organic in counterpoint. Striation, erosion, disintegration, reconstruction, protection, addition…and the process of destruction over which we ultimately have no control.” Now I must go find the perfect place for it! { image credit: }]]>

Artist Spot – Kathryn Dart

August 18, 2009

Jaime Ribisi, who herself is a very talented and successful encaustic artist deserving of a post all her own. They are handmade, wonderful quality and in beautiful colours. I got my heatgun, brushes, tools, a few other basic things. But, I can’t for the life of me find an electric griddle pan anywhere on this stupid island. A used one, preferably. Anyone? Anywho, it got me browsing encaustic artists and that is how I came upon Kathryn Dart, aka kbean on Etsy, and then I said to myself, “self, she would be perfect for your Artist Spot post”.


I just adore the depth and texture you get with wax. Oh please someone find me a griddle pan.


Just a minute… in July

Ponderosa birdsong by Julie Kaye[/caption] Watching… True Blood and Whale Wars are my staples at the moment. I watch a  lot of movies too. Making… well jewelry, of course. And soon this serving tray. 🙂 Listening… to my kitty cackle at the birds outside. Drinking… still… probably too much coffee and not enough water. Wanting… a proper desk. Trying… to find my energy, again. Play along?  :)]]>
