This is the second item I have purchased as a gift for someone, and it gets harder each time I order to give the gift because each item is so beautiful that I want to keep it. Beth is as wonderful as her beautiful art, and my item shipped quickly and was received before Christmas. The person I gave the gift to was thrilled with this amazing bracelet. Will buy again and again from this very talented artist.

About

PiCassieO: Artist - Airedale Team Makes Wild Art

"PiCassieO: Art With Love From Cassie and Beth" was the original name of our store, which I started in 2009. My Airedale Cassie was my best buddy and art mentor - without her enthusiastic "nose art", PiCassieO never would have happened.

I practiced my own art for over 20 years, won a bunch of awards and am in some notable collections, and got a grant to study marketing in 2004. Guess you could say I was a "serious" artist who got liberated by a crazy dog who freed my inner Fauve! Who knows how many masterpieces I carelessly wiped out before I finally saw the light in 2007, that my dog was a more interesting painter with that big black nose of hers. I became her interpreter and threw seriousness out the door, indulging my love of color and appreciation of ridiculousness.

Sometimes it surprises even me to see how beautifully the prints and jewelry turn out, when I know what motivated Cassie in some of her art-making (like a fly in the window!). It really was (and is) art made with love, because I loved that dog so much. She lives on in my heart and in our art.

Calli Airedale and Been the Cat joined the team after Cassie passed. Been's talents are yet undiscovered, but Calli has her own unique style, maybe in part because she has epilepsy and most of her marks are made when she is zoned out. It's more graphic than Cassie's expressionistic work, I guess because she's somehow recording what's going on in her head instead of outside. Some of her work is here as "CalliGraphy."

    I was a "serious" artist until I saw that my Airedale Cassie was having a lot more fun with her "nose art" than I was with my paintings. She freed my inner wild artist and "PiCassieO" was born! The art and jewelry are a human - canine team effort.

    Cassie was the center of "PiCassieO" - without her, none of this art would have happened. She lived her life with joy and boundless enthusiasm, which shows in the wildly colorful and whimsical art I made with her help.

  • Calli Airedale

    Assistant

    Shortly after Cassie passed away in 2012, Calli (short for "Callisto") joined me. Her style is very different from Cassie's. She has epilepsy - I think most of her marks are made when she is "absent." Some of her work is here as "CalliGraphy."

  • Been the Cat

    Assistant

    Been the cat joined us in 2012. He was Cassie's friend outside, and then Calli's. In November 2012 he got very ill with FIV and had to come inside to stay healthy. He is now fat and sassy; he and Calli provide the studio entertainment.
