Sweetly Inspired Fine Art Giveaway

17 Aug, 2011 by in etsy, sweetly 13 comments

Our Etsy giveaway this week is inspired by Jackson Pearce’s book Sweetly and is brought to you by the amazingly talented Jaz.

“I’m a full time artist based in Brisbane, Australia… I specialize mainly in pop surreal, big eyed, lowbrow, whimsical, fantasy, fairytale styles of art. Is that specialized? 😉

My inspiration comes from vintage storybooks, dreams, movies, nursery rhymes, Alice in Wonderland, steampunk, sea creatures, mermaids, museums, art…the list goes on and on.

I live with my gorgeous fiance, our beautiful daughter, and our little black & white cat – Oreo! ”

She has donated the lovely “Hansel and Gretel” Art Print

Size: 12″ x 16″ (30.5cm x 40.6cm) – with a white border for ease of framing (A3 size in total).

These prints are beautiful on their own or in a frame!

This one is based off the original Brothers Grimm fairytale of “Hansel and Gretel”. After they’ve been left stranded in the forest, Hansel and his sister Gretel stumble upon a house made completely out of candy! It’s extremely tempting, but they’re both a little weary about going in…

There’s lots of little details painted into this one! Lots of different sweets on the house, along with melting ice-cream cone turrets, and a roof made of candy hearts. I’ve purposefully made the house nice and bright, so that it contrasts with Hansel and Gretel in their bland and worn shades of brown and cream.

It’s a professional 12″ x 16″ art print on Glossy Photo Paper, printed with archival ink, so your art print should stay nice and bright for many years to come!

Wolf Card Pack Giveaway

27 May, 2010 by in etsy, odessa kelley, raised by wolves 7 comments

Our Etsy shop giveaway goes hand in hand with the book “Raised by Wolves” and was donated by OdessaKelley. Here’s her bio…”I have had a lifelong fascination with wildlife and art. As a child I spent many hours at the local library immersed in books about the Master Painters of the Renaissance. When I wasn’t at the library, I was outdoors playing with insects and wildlife, building cities for my Matchbox cars and riding my bike. (Yes, I was a tomboy . . . and still am!)

In my formative years I studied art under a private tutor who taught me the drawing basics. During my twenties I began to experiment with acrylic and oil mediums. However, I clung to my pencils and charcoal until I sold my first painting. That gave me the confidence to branch out and try other mediums like watercolor, gauche and pastel. In the end I settled on acrylic and oil, although I love pastel!

As an adult, I traveled the U.S. to experience the variety of cultures and landscapes that make up our beautiful country. While living in Arizona, I was introduced to the art of the Southwest. I fell in love with the vivid colors and realistic style the artists use to tell the story of the American Southwest. The Southwestern style has been a major influence on my work.

I am an avid gardener and with the help of my husband have created a haven for wildlife in our yard near the Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida. My concern for wildlife habitat loss and the devastating effects of urban sprawl has led me to study, paint and deeply appreciate the indigenous wildlife of North America.

I also donate to local wildlife and animal charities on a regular basis. If you purchase a painting let me know if you have a favorite wildlife or animal charity and I will donate 10% of the purchase to that charity. My husband and I serve as a foster family for unwanted pets from time to time. We share out home with 2 cats and one sweet puppy!
