Artvetting Review by Isaac Lyles

Screen shot 2015-01-05 at 7.11.03 PMI am very pleased to have made the cut for a review on Artvetting.com and by Isaac Lyles. Thank you for your time and kind words of insight and encouragement.

2014 started out for me with recovering from an accident… and two new series developed within two days of the hit. I was well into the images (at least 16-some in progress) by the time I realized there might be a connection with the series images and concept, and the accident… I submitted for review to Continue reading

2013 – 05 The Artists Journal

2013 – 05 The Artists Journal

One of the journals i kept.

One of the journals i kept.

Setting the scene… I’ll begin with the journal.

I met a little man today, who told me not to worry. He said that things will slowly change… except for those in a hurry.”

This was my first journal, at least the first one I actually filled with thoughts. I had one that was filled with sketches that was the 8×10 size as well.

I found I would write thoughts, observations, questions, poems, etc.  all the time on napkins, old envelopes, parking stubs…

2013 – 04 A little history about ….

2013 – 04 A little history about my work…

notes-journalsWriting about my history seems ever so strange to me. Maybe because I lived it. However, I am an artist and to own that, for me, says more than anything else I could write.

Skipping over the ages 0 – 18 years old living with my parents… I’ll move on to 19yrs old, just married, husband shipped off to Vietnam, me working at The Broadway Department Store as Santa’s Helper. There was, and I swear it, a ghost living in my little apartment. How did I know you might ask? Well, I’d finish dinner, wash and drain the dishes, go to bed and in the morning… the dishes were back on the table.  NOW I’m not one to sleep walk so you tell me…!!

The first year I lived alone my Christmas tree was 3ft tall, I went to the tree yard on Christmas eve asking for a deal and they gave it to me, I didn’t make lots of money so I crocheted little Continue reading

2013 – 03 I decided to sell my Bebuddies…



Each new year as well as new time of life bring changes that when we see them and accept them and then take action to make them happen can bring us some amazing energy vibrations and a new perspective paradigm shift.

I’ve decided to sell of my line of characters, The Bebuddies. This is a big thing for me and it’s taken quite a few years to get to the place where I can see that I need to let them go. I can only hope that there is someone out there who see’s their Continue reading

2013 Holiday is Past and work-work begins

bow-i-am-dance-by-karrie-ross Years ago I painted lots more using watercolors. I painted a series titled “I Am The Dance”. It was of  dancers and the mixture of watercolor and pen & ink. I created a boarder and the dancers hands and feet broke through it… opening to the universe beyond. I used different weights of pen that created the wavy vibrations of the ink line. This one is titled “The Bow”.

I like this series.
in the movement life’s explored
beyond our vision

2013 – 01 The New Year is Upon Us


2013 The New Year is Upon Us.

The tension builds within as I see the new year begin. I don’t seem to be able to get the thoughts to go in one direction, they scatter all over and then I’m exhausted.

Creating artwork is a process, sometimes… and other times it’s just a matter of doing something along the lines of, well, say painting. Picking up a canvas/paper etc and just making a mark or prepping the palette. When using a dry palette for Continue reading
