Tropical Mermaid by Reine-Haru
Tropical Mermaid
I've been playing around with paper cutting more recently and I have to say, it's super fun!  I've also inadvertently started a series of mythical sea-beings, this being the first installment.

The Color Master by Reine-Haru
The Color Master
One of my final classes for grad school was a narrative painting class, which was really interesting, despite the fact that we only had 8 weeks to paint a 36x48" canvas in oils.  I chose to illustrate the short story "The Color Master" by Aimee Bender, which is an amazing retelling of the faerie tale Donkeyskin (you can read it in the anthology My Mother She Killed Me, My Father He Ate Me).  This is the part in the story where the Color Master's apprentice works to put anger in the dress so that the princess will not marry her father. 

I really haven't worked in oils since high school, so I had a lot of learning to do, especially since oil techniques are nearly opposite of watercolor techniques.  In the end, there's still a lot I would like to fix/improve on with this painting, but sometimes, you just have to be done and stop swearing at your canvas.

Oils on canvas, 36 x 48"
Spring Elsa by Reine-Haru
Spring Elsa
I couldn't not paint Elsa's new spring gown from "Frozen Fever" after seeing teaser shots of it.  I also experimented with layering the illustration with glitter, sequins, and crystals.  Then again, I have a hard time resisting sparkly things as it is, haha. 

Prints coming soon!

I like stories (especially faerie tales), dried tea bags, stars, and cats. I'm interested in the world around me and exploring all its lovely details.
