Wooden Ophelia Coming Soon

Most of you would never know this but when I'm not painting or drawing, I woodwork. Like the time my mom and I built an industrial cathedral library bookshelf or the table in my studio that I use as a 'go to' spot for photographs. So yeah, I'm talking miter saws, jigsaws, drills, sanders...the whole nine yards.

My new online shop Wooden Ophelia is about to launch! *insert hyper reaction* It's a contemporary collection of natural wood and artwork furnishings + crystals and botanicals. Here's tiny taste of what's in store! 

ABOUT 

Welcome to the wonders of Wooden Ophelia' 
Curating a beautifully contemporary collection of natural wood and artwork furnishings, each piece is diligently handcrafted and uniquely different. From conception to completion, I carefully select every aspect of the design to invoke charm and character while bringing something special to your home.

Adorned with crystal and mineral collections, as well as charm vials filled with botanical and herbal remedies individually selected from my garden, each design arrives nurtured by love and made from scratch.
Taking delight in the seemingly magical process of woodworking, the rituals of saw blades, drill bits, and gritty pieces of sandpaper fuse together into a dusty specter among fine wood shavings. It is with continued dedication that I create these one-of-a-kind pieces.

When life gives you lemons... add Patron

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later. So there I am, set deep in the valley of the shadows of horror while driving back to the scene of the crime... where of course, the clutch had turned Houdini and magically disappeared.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Designs by Bella: Vintage Lollipops x Magazzini del Sale Capsule Collection

Last year, Italian designer Graziano Moro of Magazzini Del Sale contacted me about collaborating and designing a five-piece Limited Edition capsule collection for their SS 11 Love Can Change the World t-shirt line. Having never been given such an incredibly surreal opportunity before, you can imagine my absolute surprise... followed by some sort of psychotic jubilation. At the time, I'd only been drawing for about a month, which means the designs you're seeing are some of my very first artworks! Brainstorming endless possibilities, the process began with a series of sketches, clipart graphics, and silhouette collages until I further conceptualized the vision by deciding to submit only my illustrations.  After presenting numerous options, Graziano and the team exclusively selected their top picks... and after several months of diligence, reworking, and constant communication, my artwork was transformed into a beautiful line of ecru shirts forever deemed, Vintage Lollipops x M…
