About

Unusual Artwork for the Discerning Eccentric

Curious Portraits is a portrait treasury of all the things that filled me with wonder as a child and continue to fire my imagination. Anthropomorphic and Victorian animals, Gothic portraits and Retro food icons. These portraits are steeped in nostalgia and represent my idea of an ideal world in which animals wear clothing and puppets, Victorian skeletons and giant peanuts co-exist!

All the items in this shop are created from these original portraits and are handmade by me with care.

My studio is nestled in the West Village of Manhattan and shared with my faithful companion Astro who is a constant source of inspiration and joy.

You might also enjoy my satellite shop, Curious Print & Pattern which features whimsical, vintage inspired prints, cards, kitchen towels, ornaments and coasters that reflect my love of surface design and 1940's kitchen textiles.
