New Painting for Dorothy Circus Gallery Mother & Child Exhibition

This is my newest painting “Gaia” I created for Dorothy Circus Gallery’s Mother & Child exhibition opening in London April 13th. Motherhood to me means many things , the love for my mother who carried me into this world and gave me life, the connectivity of women around the world, growing life within and bringing it into the world. But what I wanted to paint was Mother Nature the first and true mothe of the Earth. “Gaia” creates all life on earth, she protects and nurtures us with her body. She gives us a moment on this earth that begins and ends but is filled with beauty and possibilities. So I would like to honor the Mother of our Earth with this portrait of her.

You can inquire adding this original oil painting to your collection by emailing info@dorothycircusgallery.uk or add a print of her to your collection from my custom print shop here.

It’s almost spring! And I’m feeling fresh and springy with new releases for Etsy.

I’ve made new Easter themed cutie fuzzbutt bees for my Easter release on Etsy! Special holidays get me so revved up creatively, I can’t contain it. How could I not paint an Easter Bunny Bee?

New Painting for Femme Exhibition Juztapoz Magazine and Spoke Art

I’m excited to announce my newest painting is a contribution to “Femme” curated by Spoke Art and Juxtapoz Projects at Mana Contemporary. The exhibition is a followup to their successful and thought-provoking NSFW show about female identity and sexuality in art. My new oil painting, “Boobees”, is my creative response to the questions of what it means to be a female artist, or to explore female sexuality in art.

FEMME will open at Juxtapoz Projects, March 1st, from 6—10pm, at Mana Contemporay, 888 Newark Avenue, Jersey City, New Jersey. If you’re in the area, definitely check out all the amazing artwork from 40 contributing artists! For original artwork purchase inquiries email sf@spoke-art.com

New Painting for Crime on Canvas Exhibition

I have a new painting to show you lovelies! This is “Queen Sakana” and I painted her for the M Modern Gallery Crime on Canvas group exhibition, opening today at the Life Is Beautiful Music Festival in Las Vegas! The theme of the show was “Animal” so I took inspiration from my beautiful betta fish, Falcor. I’m a huge betta nut! If you’re in the Las Vegas area, definitely check out the show! And if you’d like to collect the original painting, you can acquire it here.

New Artwork for Corey Helford Gallery Romantics Exhibition

This is my newest oil painting, Rosa! I’ve contributed a brand new original painting to Corey Helford Gallery’s New Romantics group show, curated by Caro and opening July 28th. I’m so excited! I’m a hopeless romantic at heart. My piece is loosely inspired by Oscar Wilde’s story The Nightengale and the Rose. It’s a tale about unrequited love and ultimate sacrifice… all the good stuff! If you’re in the LA Area you can view the original painting the whole exhibition starting July 28, 7-11pm and on display until Sept 1. To inquire collecting my new original painting please email sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com

Sky Exhibition Opens Tonight

Today is the day!  My soloshow “Sky” opens at 7pm tonight Corey Helford Gallery in  Los Angeles! It took me over a year to create this collection of paintings and drawings. This is my most diverse showing to date. This exhibition represents who I am as a person and as an artist. I want my art to be my voice of unity and acceptance. I believe we all deserve to be treated equally regardless of our skin tone, our sexuality, where we come from or our shape. Whether you have pale skin, vitiligo, freckles or curves, I hope to empower people and to show the world that we should love each other’s uniqueness!

This show is a culmination of many sleepless nights, and both tears and joy, so I can’t wait for you to see it! I’ve poured my heart and soul into this art! If you can’t make it to the opening don’t fret! You can email sherri@coreyhelfordgallery.com to inquire available originals from my show.

I wish you all the love in my heart! Sending my love and squishes from here in Chicago! You can check out my solo show video on YouTube Here!

Happy New Year! A look back at 2017

Here’s MY personal Best Nine of 2017. ? This year has been a crazy, unexpected whirlwind! Especially for me creatively. So I wanted to look back and choose 9 pics from my feed that I think made a mark on me as an artist. ? It’s important to look back to see how we grow and change and take notes for the future. This year I expressed many sides of my personality, the fun side with my fuzzbutt bees, ? the environmental side with the 3 eyed Ajna, ? the ridiculous side with my zombees. ? I opened up in ways I hadn’t before, like sharing my fan fiction art through Patreon (Bethyl forever!), deciding to channel love over hate with my new @coreyhelfordgallery show “Sky”. I pushed myself technically with “La Madre” one of my biggest most intricate paintings to date, I painted a boy, “Dorian Grey” mixing rainbows and literature, ?? I spent a year completing my rainbow fox, and I brought my love of doll furniture together with my love of custom toys! I published my first ever online comic “Davinchibi” and launched my Etsy with the help of Asami! Tasha, my amazing coordinator knocked it out of the Park this year! She helped me build my Patreon and so much more. ? I did things this year that I hadn’t done before, traveled more than ever and took creative risks. It hasn’t been an easy year, I think many can relate.? This year forced me to push myself to work harder and deal with tragedies. 2017 almost felt apocalyptic. Hate surfaced in ways I didn’t expect and it hurt my heart so gravely that I changed my entire direction for my solo show for Corey Helford next year. I decided to take a stand for my beliefs that ALL humans are equal.? I want my art to inspire and heal, to bring people together, to spread love. I hope that I’ve brought smiles to your faces and been there through the hard times. My new motto is “Love over Hate”.? I have some big plans for next year, I talk about them here on my new Huffington Post interview. You can read it here!  Now that the year is ending it’s time to look forward to what we can accomplish in 2018! ? Stay strong and let your freak flag fly my lovelies!! I can’t thank you enough for all your likes and comments and support. You make me so happy! ? I want to wish you the Happiest New Years ever! Let’s celebrate with love! Big hugs and all my best!
