The Moth Eater.

My latest painting, the Moth Eater.
Very much inspired by the beautiful autumn colors.
This will be in my Etsy as a print as soon as they arrive! :)

Oh and did I mention that everything in my etsy is 15% until next Monday?


As a painter of women, I'm often asked who I think are the most beautiful women in the world. My list is always changing except for a select few classics, but one woman always remains the top of the list. Marilyn Monroe.

I can't really say why, though. She's definitely got a beautiful face, but there are many girls with beautiful faces. Her cheesecake films frankly, in my opinion, did not age very well into our modern times. I find myself appalled by the ludicrous plots sometimes. And perhaps her back story added to the appeal, too. It was heartbreaking to see how much she was suffering when people thought she had it all. But there's lots of people who suffer in the world, so that can't be it.

All I know is this- whenever Marilyn is on screen, I just can't tear my eyes away. I remember watching Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and feeling quite sorry for her co-star Jane Russell because whenever Marilyn is on screen, I just can't look at anything else. I had to drink up every move she makes.

Part of it is the way she smiles her most seductive smile. Her half closed sultry eyes really add to the sexiness.. her breathy voice, and the way she moves, and her gorgeous, healthy body unlike the stick thin girls of today... all of this add to who I think is my most perfect movie star of all time. The two Marilyn ACEOs above are just teasers.. some time in the future, I want to paint a full fledged painting of Marilyn that expresses all I feel about her.

I am now offering custom etsy banner designs.
I did all four in 2 hours! They were the most fun ever.

hey you!

This is a commissioned caricature portrait of my friend Val.
He wanted a painting of himself surrounded by mini-Vals in his different personas:
the gambler, the filmmaker, the superhero, the don juan and the lacrosse player.
I'm not sure about the cat, though. Maybe he just likes cats.

Donut stop the awesome!

The batter to see you with!
I decided to paint the two cutest friends being silly together.

Buffy with Rogue & Gambit

Commissioned cards of Buffy and Rogue with Gambit.
I had mad fun painting these :)!
Technically, Rogue would have sucked all the power out of Gambit once she touched him, but er.. I'm gonna call artistic license on this.


Everytime I make one of these cards, I just feel so happy!!
I try to pour forth all my cuteness and happiness into them,
and keep them innocent, childish and of course, super sweet.
The bottom two are already sold, but you can get the top two in my Ebay!
