creative thursday, began as a weekly routine that allowed marisa time to do something creative in addition to her 9 to 5. her cast of tiny characters includes an elephant, lila & lola, and a supercute owl to name a few of my favs. if you happen to be in los angeles next month, you can see the original paintings at black maria gallery.
having worked as both a graphic designer & then also an interior designer i have always LOVED color, and am often known for the strong vibrant colors in my painting backgrounds. i'm a huge fan of orange :) just recently i have been experimenting more with bursts of color on more subdued backgrounds as in this recent painting. but no matter what, color always works its way into my creations!
