Other Places to Find Me Online

TeePublic: If you want one of my octopuses on a shirt--or a mug, blanket, etc.--this is the place for you! The prices are reasonable, and the various artists (including me!) receive a refreshingly generous cut of the proceeds.

Patreon: If ever you've wanted to see my art take shape in "real time," this is your chance! Post topics range from step-by-step paintings, to frame refinishing, to the glory of my mostly second-hand studio. Patreon gives you the most of me, for better or for worse!

DeviantArt: An online community of artists. I post here (HEAVILY watermarked, mind) for the sake of the time-stamp that I can't change, which helps in the unfortunate instance of art theft. A sad necessity re: theft, but I've also been fortunate to make some amazing artist friends through this site, so it's 50/50!

Facebook: I do my best to only post art and happiness, so friend and follow as you please! Like DA, this one's rather unavoidable. I'm honestly a fairly private person--my art, ideally, does the talking!

Art and Artists

These are a few of my favorite artists, websites, and suppliers. May they be of equal help and inspiration to you!

Josephine Wall: A fellow acrylic painter with a wonderful sense of color.

The Mucha Foundation: A selection of works, news, and publications of the Art Nouveau master Alphonse Mucha.

John Williams Waterhouse: His mythological pieces couldn't be more lovely. My favorite is "Hylas and the Nymphs."

Dante Gabriel Rossetti: The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood as a whole is fascinating, but I've been smitten with Rossetti from the start.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art--Publications Feast your eyes on the the Met's online catalogue of scholarly publications, available for FREE! Be you a fellow artist, a fellow history nerd, or just a lover of knowledge, this is a truly amazing resource. Despite them being available at no cost, I still own hard copies of several of these books--that's how good they are.

Art Suppliers

Daniel Smith: Everything an artist could dream of affording, be it paint, canvas, or the other tools of the trade. If your muse is as impatient as mine, you'll rejoice over their two-day delivery.

Bailey Pottery: Everything related to ceramics, firing, and glazing. I order my sculpting tools here. It takes a week or so for delivery, so plan ahead.

American Frame: An inexpensive framing and mat supplier that offers pre-cut mats--a must for these worn hands of mine! As a bonus, the mats arrive in heavy-duty boxes that are nigh indestructible; I always save and reuse them for shipping paintings.
