Shapeshifters.

GUEST BLOGGER: Suzanne Shade

I heard about Amy Ross' work last year from one of my customers in Seattle (thanks, Jan!) and have been following her career ever since. Her newest show at Rare Device is called Shapeshifters and has some amazing collage elements to expand on her polymorphic watercolor work. Like Alexis Mackenzie, she's been using old botanical illustrations to make combinations that are just magically delicious. This show's up at Rare Device until July 8th, so go by and take a look if you are in town.


While you're at it, you may want to check out the item currently flying off the shelves: a custom birch tree platter from Rust Designs. Actually I'm doing this just to torture Lisa and Rena, who have had to ship over a thousand of these out to readers of Real Simple Magazine. Well done, ladies!

lovely, lovely stuff..

I know this is a crazy request and you'll probably (try to) ignore it, but.. would you consider drawing up a simple floor plan of your apartment to better illuminate your re-arrangements?

just a thought....

Yay, I love Amy Ross! I got one of her prints when she did 20x200 last year, and she ended up commenting on my blog when I posted a framed mockup of the print, and she was just really sweet. I think my favorite thing about the internet/crafts/art movement has been making connections with artists instead of feeling so far removed from them.
