. FAQS page .

i've been meaning to make a FAQ page for quite some time.
the number one question i get is the process.
(what kind of wood i use, what to coat the panels, medium etc.)
i will be sure to make a detailed post on the process soon.

if you have any other Q's let me know,  and will try to include that.

we get hundreds of emails with questions, and i am sorry we can't reply to all of it.
email replying requires a lot of time, and i wouldnt be able to concentrate on my work if i did so.
Thank you for understanding.

. art auction for charity .

Here is another something we are excited about!

This March, Kevin Mangan (my boyfriend) and Adam Clift, are doing the Rickshaw Run;
racing an auto rickshaw over 1800 miles of South East Asia.
It's organized by a group called The Adventurists, and - the best part - it's all for charity.

This is basically like a marathon charity pledge,
but on a rickshaw through jungle, island and ocean for 1800 miles! It's pretty wild!!

For more detailed info check Jakarta or Bust site.
This site is exclusively about Kevin and Adam's team and their adventure,
and will be frequently updated before/during/after the trip.

check out their facebook page and twitter too!

All proceeds will be donated to Birdlife International and Action Against Hunger.
Your help would be greatly appreciated. Please donate if you can.

Along with regular donations we are putting together an art auction! 
50% will go to charity, and 50% to their modest budget (airfare, insurance, deposits, visas, gear, etc.)
Until their budget is met, then the rest will go to charity.

The auction will begin Feb 18th. this Saturday.
will announce the link then.
Click HERE for a little more info.
I will have 3 drawings available, along with other artist's originals and prints.
these will be framed in a floating style. will post those photos this weekend.

this is the first time working on vellum and in two layers. 
i had so much fun with these, and hope to explore more like this.

detailed photos after the jump.

~the print is available on my site.

~prints are signed in the image area (not in the white space under the image).
so if/when you would like it to get framed, you do not have to leave a white border around the image.
this way, it will look more like the original!
if you prefer a white border, you must get it matted accordingly.
