Colorado Springs, Colorado | 67 Sales

Announcement    Well, we've made it this far!
My Quarantine Project has been an EPIC QUEST to paint every element of the Periodic Table as fantasy creatures. Fairies and elves, gnomes and goblins and trolls...the noble gases are dragons. It's pretty wild. I'm about halfway done, and I'm putting my favorites up here as individual prints. Perhaps you have a favorite element? Yes? Huzzah!
No? You will.

About BitethePaintbrush

Dragons and goddesses and geekery, oh my...

I paint, draw, sculpt and craft unusual things because it's what I was born to do. I think that people like us, who make the world more beautiful in our small, unique ways, are just as important as those who go out and change the world in huge, sweeping ways.

I've been an artist all my life. There never was any other career choice for me. I've cheerfully spent the last fifteen years finding ways to simply be an artist and avoid getting a "real" job. It's not easy. Especially when my destiny turned out to be motherhood, which is the most real job you can have! And it does cut into painting time. But my children are an enormous inspiration to me, so that's all right.

A word about Geekery: My family are pretty hardcore geeks. Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, Doctor Who, Tolkien...It's severe. I hope my fan art delights you, but if it doesn't, ignore it! There's plenty of original stuff in here as well. Not to mention some collaborations with my mother, a children's book writer whose website is worth checking out: http://www.greenturtlearts.com

I opened my Etsy store in January 2014. My boyfriend, and my kids, and my mom have been cheering me on. We're all glad you came to visit my shop, and if you have any questions (or suggestions; I'm not proud), I'd love to hear them. Until then, do whatever it is you do to make the world more beautiful.
