Flora - the goddess of Flowers! I love this painting, it was fun painting all of the flowers and fruits. I debuted her (along with her sister Fauna) at my "Flora and Fauna" event at Pop Gallery in Downtown Disney West Side® in Walt Disney World Resort® here in Florida - the originals sold at the show, but the Limited Edition Gallery Canvases which are EXCLUSIVE to the gallery are there now! My own original acrylic painting, painted on a wood/masonite panel.

The sixth installment in my Poisonous Beauties series - a series of works featuring portraits of faery creatures and various poisonous plants (and fungus)! #6 in this series features the Fly Agaric mushroom - also known by its Latin name, Amanita Muscaria - one of the most beautiful mushrooms! I always think of faeries when I see these bright red, spotted mushrooms - a very popular decorative element in households and fairytale illustrations everywhere. Who would expect that such a cheerful mushroom could be bad for you? Known for its hallucinogenic, toxic, and in some cultures - magical - properties. My own original acrylic painting.

Those of you who know me, know that I am obsessed with nautilus shells! I collect them as well as fossil ammonites. I have several "tiger nautilus" shells and wanted to do a portrait with one - accenting it with the Tiger Lily flower (since I like the sound of both having the word "tiger" in them). A beautiful, slightly sad looking girl. This piece debuted and sold at the Celebration Spring Art Festival in 2012. This is my own original acrylic painting.

Fauna - the goddess of Animals! This was another really fun painting to do - all those animals! My favourite part of this one is the hummingbirds!

Part of my "Poissons Volants" series ("Flying Fish)" - combining my love with sea creatures and Rococo era portraiture - "Les Poissons Rouges" (the goldfish - actually called "redfish" in French) is a stunning baroque portrait of a beautiful lady in a hazy forest landscape surrounded by brilliang magical winged goldfish. The bright colours of the goldfish really "pop" against the subtle pastels of the setting. The original painting debuted and sold at the Celebration Spring Art Festival, but Limited Ediion Canvases are now available at Pop Gallery Orlando at Downtown Disney at the Walt Disney World Resort.

Part of my "Poissons Volants" series ("Flying Fish)" - combining my love with sea creatures and Rococo era portraiture - "L'Hippocampe" (the seahorse) was such a fun painting to do! In addition to the prismatic sehorse, there are some leafy sea dragons too! Seahorses and Seadragons are two of the most magical little animals (I could hardly believe it the first time I saw a Leafy Sea Dragon - they are amazing). And of course in the spirit of my Poissons Volants series these wee beasties are flying about on beautiful butterfly wings! The original painting debuted and sold at the Spectrum Fantastic Art Live show in 2012, prints and posters are now available!

The fourth installment in my Poisonous Beauties series - a series of works featuring portraits of faery creatures and various poisonous plants! #4 in this series of course features the Poison Ivy plant! I\'ve never suffered negative effects from poison ivy, but I know folks who have and it can be awful! Still lovely though - and so is this pretty fairy girl - maybe a little too lovely to trust....

Part of my "Poissons Volants" series ("Flying Fish)" - combining my love with sea creatures and Rococo era portraiture - "Le Poisson-Lion" (the lionfish) features one of the most delicate and dangerous sea creatres! With beautiful stripes and fluttering fins that already look a lot like wings, it was an obvious choice to include a lionfish piece in my Poissons Volants series with the addition of some beautiful butterfly wings! The maiden in this piece is a little sultry, and definitely gorgeous! This original acrylic painting debuted and sold at the Spectrum Fantastic Art Live show in 2012, prints and posters are now available!
