More to tempt you

I wasn’t expecting it to be so completely different.
Marion Lindsay
When you buy something from an artist you’re buying more than an object. You’re buying hundreds of hours of errors and experimentation. You’re buying years of frustration and moments of pure joy.
You’re not buying just one thing, you are buying a piece of heart, a piece of soul… a small piece of someone else’s life.

It’s got the most wonderful vibe. It does. I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t feel it.

You have a beautiful collection.
Lois Schlowsky
You have such an array of work, there’s something that will resonate with everyone. But there’s a thread that runs through it.
