Upcoming Events

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Wow, my spring has gone by in a whirl wind! I have been so busy with freelance toy design work, my two year old and getting ready for the arrival of my new little lady who is due in only a few weeks that I have barely been able to do anything new for Tsai-fi.

Some things that have been cooking behind the scenes besides my baby gal include working on a tsai-fi inspired children’s collection that I will be debuting later this year. The collection will include lots of paper goods for your little ones such as themed invitations, name prints and other fun stuff. I also did some custom wall decals with this art for my daughter and new baby’s room that I will also post up.

I also just completed a custom Babo Ugly Doll plush for the Ugly Con/ Giant Robot Show. The show subject was to complete a custom Babo and I made a Crazy for Cookies Babo. He is insane for cookies. Take a look at the cookie, I added some Tsai-fi eyes on the sweet confection!

The show goes from June 15th – June 26, 2013

Fall is Here Again…

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Its been too long since my last post. I have been trying to find a minute to update on what been going on with Tsai-fi but I am sure as some of you know an infant is a lot of work! Whew, I totally respect my Momma way more than ever. I love my little lady but between taking care of her and my day job, I am exhausted.

Now on to new stuff, I have been working on a new set of Mistresses. I have been inspired by Halloween so I wanted to do a new set of dark girlies. The first one is the Snake Mistress, Medusa is her more common name. I will be releasing two more before Halloween. Here is she is, you gotta check her out on my site. I will also be adding her to my Pingg site so she can be used for Halloween evites.

This weekend, I will be vending at Crafty Bastards again this year on October 1. The show is from 10am – 5pm in Adams Morgan, Washington  DC. You gotta check it if you are in the hood! I am next to the Potbelly stand at the Show. See ya there!

Hot, Hot Summer!

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

It’s been way too long since my last post. I have not been keeping my New Year’s resolution to myself to post weekly. I blame it on taking on way too much because I am such an overachiever. What have I been busy with you ask.  I have been burning the midnight oil on my freelance business, working on a new long term tsai-fi  project that is top secret for a client, tattoo art for another client and a painting for a gallery show plus taking care of my little princess who is almost 6 mos. old. Time flies, it seems like a week ago that I was complaining about being 40 weeks pregnant.  I will also be vending at my second crafty show of the year in a few weeks too.

Here is a sneak peek of the tattoo art that I am working on. It is not colored yet but I wanted to give you a first look at this fun piece. The client wanted a half sleeve on her upper left arm that was sea themed with two mermaids. Check it out below:

Next, I am working on a new painting for a gallery show in Los Angeles called Happy Creatures of the Forest which begins in September. I have a few ideas and I will be sharing sketches soon.

I will be vending at the Ballston Arts and Crafts Market in Arlington, VA next month on August 13. Check out the Flyer below for more info.

That’s it for now. Stay tuned for more updates!

Woof and Roll with a Spring Thing

Monday, April 4th, 2011

This spring is going really well. I am enjoying being a new momma and getting back into creating goodies for Tsai-fi.

I have just finished a collection of paintings called Woof and Roll. Inspired by the fabulous warm weather pastime of skating, this collection of paintings is very happy and playful. Cute tattoos, rainbows and adorable pups make this series irresistable. Each of the lovely ladies always takes her pup when she goes for a spin on her skates. The media is goauche. Check out the pieces below.

Spinnin’ with Sugar
Rollin’ with Rocky

Cruisin’ with Champ

Stay tuned for a roller skate charm with rhinestone wheels  that is coming soon!

Also, I am vending in the  Spring Thing Show in Washington, DC that is being held by the DC Craft Mafia on May 21st, pls come out to shop  and check out all of the awesome vendors.

Please check out the Ballston Show in Arlington, VA too. I am vending on August 9 and September 13!

Sweet November…..

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

I really love the fall! It has been amazing here on the east coast. I am really loving the Autumn weather. The rain and the chill are fabulous! It is so different than Cali. Love it!

I have lots to share. Its been way too long since my last post.  I have new products and  great upcoming shows. See below for all of the excitement!  I also have a great holiday promo that just started. Enjoy free holiday domestic and international shipping on purchases over $25.00 until December 20.  Just enter the promotional code Freeship during check out.

Sophie Snow Exhibition
I will be sending out some pieces to a show in LA called Sophie Snow Exhibition Show. The show runs from Sunday, November 19 – December 10, 2010 at the Sophie Snow Store in El Sequndo, CA.

Holiday Heist

I will be vending at the Holiday Heist show in Vienna, Va on Sunday, November 21, 2010 at the Soundry. I am so psyched to take part in a east coast holiday show. It will be my first non- west coast holiday show.

Next, I wanted to tell you about all of my new jewelry! I have three new rings and one new necklace. Check them out below:

The Smashed Sea mermaids are one of favorite characters to work with and this ring was no exception. I had so much fun sculpting this ring. It is sterling silver and available in sizes 5, 6, 7, 8. Now available on my website. Ships at the end of next week.

Another kick ass new ring is my two finger butterfly ring. This new piece goes on two fingers, the ring and the middle finger. How cool is that? This piece was another joy to sculpt in wax. It is now available on my site and ships immediately. The ring is available in sizes 5, 6, 7, 8. Ring is sized based on ring finger.

I have also created a butterfly necklace too. This is in sterling silver too. It hangs from an 18″ chain and the longest chain that hangs off of the butterfly is 8″. Now available on my website. It ships immediately.

Finally, I have also added the bow ring to my collection of jewelry. It is inspired by the knot tied around your finger to help you remember but just a little more cute. It is available in sterling silver . The ring is available in sizes 5, 6, 7, 8. The ring is available on my website and ships at the end of next week.

Last but not least, I have a brand new print that is part of the Smashed Sea Baby Collection.  Once upon a time, the mermaids of the Smashed Sea were babies. Before they started to drink vodka from the bottle, they loved their milk bottles. Check out this cutie being entertained by her Whale pal. This print is the second in a collection of Baby Mermaid prints. Since my art tends to be a little adult themed in nature, I have has many requests for mermaids that are appropriate for all ages.  This print is called Sailin’ with a Whale. Stay Tuned for more young mermaid prints.

Stay Tuned for more art and jewelry coming soon!

I love taking part in it. Not many pics of the actual event this year. It was too hectic at the event and since I just moved, I am really behind on a lot of stuff. But check out this insert from the Washington City Paper. There is a katkeshi in the art. Yay! You can also click the image below to see Flickr galleries of all of the great vendors, b-boy battles and crafty demonstrations.
