SunnylandStudio's Shop Announcement

Everything in my shop was meticulously created by me in my home studio in Elmvale, Ontario, Canada.

My work is shiny, glittery, magical mixed media paintings on canvas. They are comprised of painted paper dolls, with paper dresses, that usually have 3D details such as tulle skirts, lace trim, jewelled bindis, handfuls of pearls and bodices laced with real thread. All of my pieces have glittered, metallic backgrounds and they are all sealed with a thick, glossy varnish that gives them a layered, finished look – like the glossy metallic finish on a car (that’s unfortunately very difficult to photograph, but I try my best).

I use four different types of glitter in my pieces: standard, fine glitter; short, tinsel-shaped glitter; chunky, flaked glitter and sometimes iridescent hearts or stars in various colours, all of which shimmer and shine in different ways when covered with the epoxy-like varnish I use.

Thematically my girls are fantastical, generally being fairies, angels, mermaids or pretty girls in ball gowns who are not unlike princesses. Most of the paintings I make are intended to enchant children, however most of those who collect my work (to date) are adults.

Thank you for your continued support! And YES I happily ship internationally! Also all paintings, except where noted, come with a saw tooth hanger on the back for easy hanging.
