ShinyTimes Studio

Moodus, Connecticut

Announcement    Welcome to ShinyTimes Studio. Thank you for checking out the shop. I work with watercolor, gouache and ink, collage, image transfer, and resin. I also use Procreate. Please look around...feel free to email me if you have any questions. Thank you for visiting.

I like to experiment with india ink, gold and silver, jewel tones, iridescent paints and layers. Often a piece starts as a simple ink drawing but, by the time it’s finished there are often multiple layers of paper elements, tape, mediums, images, even pieces of solder embedded in resin. I’m somewhat of a magpie - attracted to shiny things and combining all these elements in art makes me happy. Among my influences, I would say fairy tales (particularly The Brothers Grimm), Neil Gaiman, Edward Gorey, botanical illustration, etching, E.H. Shepherd, Dante‘s Inferno, witchcraft, alchemical symbolism and illuminated manuscripts feature highly.

    I loved it immediately when I opened the box. The craftsmanship was excellent, and it was packaged so well that it arrived undamaged.
