Progression of Alice....

Some progress shots of my new "Alice" piece as it develops!

Down the Rabbit Hole.....

After much deliberation and a little R&D..... I've decided on my theme for my upcoming show! It's going to be a kind of hybrid of different ideas.... drawing inspirations from Alice in Wonderland, Marie Antoinette, and Victorian Fashion.

I'm also excited to announce I've joined the TUMBLR revolution! It's a fantastic place to discover and share inspiration. You can quickly "reblog" inspirational images and basically collect your ideas all in one place! I've started gathering up tons of gorgeous imagery to inspire my show concept! Come on by and follow me on tumblr to check out my latest inspirations and obsessions! I'd love to follow you guys too and see what inspires you!

Leilani Joy's Collaboration Contest!

Some of my favorite inspiration images....

With tea cups and powdered wigs dancing in my head.... It was time to get to work! I've been holding onto these AMAZING tea cup halves that were custom cut for use in mosaics and such. I've been dying to use them in a couple paintings, and what better use than in an Alice in Wonderland themed piece!

Can't wait to get started..... To be continued!

It's Showtime!

Soooooo excited to announce my upcoming solo show!!! I've been invited to display my work at French Cuff Consignment in Davis California! I've got my work cut out for me and I have ambitiously (or some may say psychotically) decided to create a ton of new pieces for it. The reception will open on September 9th and will be up for one month! I can't wait! I'll be posting up the new pieces for the show as they develop! All I need is concept and show title!

I recently visited to shop to get inspired and check out the space.....
