The Velvet Elephant :Art inspired by music, film, humor, the romance of forgotten era's, magick & the mysterious, old stock photos & Coffee

Drawing & painting since I was a kid.
I have a strong love of music & collecting records! Old films, the traveling circus, stock photos, antiques & vintage items.
I find my inspiration in all of these things & the 1900's - 1960's eras.

Always creating my art on paper or canvas; I started making myself band t-shirts (after never finding any at thrift shops). By painting directly onto a stretched cotton tee.

After a while, I started working on larger, more detailed paintings & trying out different clothing as my base.
I'd find a vintage jacket, vest, vintage dresses & even gloves.... the process of painting on clothing was a lot harder than it seemed. Layers & layers of paint, on sometimes stubborn fabric, could become challenging.
But, I always was & am so happy with the final outcome.
All that hard work that goes into making something by hand... it's very rewarding.

Knowing it's going to someone who will love it. Whether it be a surprise, or a personal purchase.
I make each item with the same devotion & passion that goes into any painting.

Here you can find all of these makes, along with my vintage treasure hunting findings.
