About

"Art is a Pigment Of Your Imagination"

From my most earliest memories I spent many hours sketching & painting.. at 5 yrs old started my art career by selling caricatures of my neighbors for nickel each.. I consider my self taught ~ tho I have to honor my jr. high & senior school art teachers all whom were gifted artists & brilliant teachers. I also give credit to my dear neighbor as a kid growing up, Ken Southworth who was indeed an incredible animator & inspiration. During my early years as an illustrator I designed for Figi Graphics, Leanin Tree Cards, Leisure Arts, Dimensions & Art In Motion with series of prints, puzzles, cards, magnets & cross stitch...

"Today, I live in the beautiful mountains of Idyllwild~ We get snow usually thru Jan-March. My husband & I have lived here in a small cozy cabin for 16 yrs & since built an art studio & garage....My portfolio contains several themes that range from flying pigs to whimsical bears, cows & pigs, landscapes, seascapes, fairies, scif-fi & wild life. Nearly all paintings are done in acrylic & a beginning of a series. Luv commissions & have prints, giclee's of limited work...To see my work up close please visit the Spruce Moose Gift & Gallery located upstairs in the "Fort" downtown Idyllwild.

Recently, the Art Alliance of Idyllwild sponsored a public art project known as the "Idyllwild Deer Sighting" --it is the first public art project spearheaded by Shanna Robb. Made out of recycled aluminum and hand painted with acrylic by local artists, the 22 deer sculptures are placed at 12 locations around the Idyllwild Area for public viewing. The Spruce Moose Gallery is the location of my Painted Deer #19 "Spirit of Tauquitch." "Follow the Trail of the Painted Deer" Maps are available around town.

UPDATE: Im a wine label!!! So awesome!
"Spirit of Tahquitch"

MIDDLE RIDGE WINERY
Idyllwild Deer Sightings
Inaugural Artist Series
2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Inaugural "Idyllwild Deer Sightings" label project. This label is "Spirit of Tahquitch" painted by Darcy Gerdes. This medium bodied, refreshing Cabernet Sauvignon is very typical of wine you would expect from the Santa Ynez Valley. Our first Artist Series is a salute to Idyllwild Deer Sightings, the first permanent public art exhibit to grace the beautiful mountain community of Idyllwild, the headquarters of Middle Ridge Winery. The exhibit consists of 22 life-size deer painted by local artists to celebrate the town's history and culture. A portion of the sale of every bottle sold will be donated to the Art Alliance of Idyllwild, the creative energy behind the deer exhibit.
