The Odd and the Beautiful, the story of an online Curiosity Shop.

I am going to be honest with you. This shop is not for everyone. There is a very high chance that it, in fact, is not for you. No, this shop caters to the tastes of a very select group of people. A group that is comfortable enough with who they are to experience something that challenges the boundaries of their comfort zone. Inside you will find a collection of dark works, and heartbreaking beauty. If you are looking for cute mugs with inspirational sayings on them, you are in the wrong place. If, however, you are one of those special people who are bold enough, and looking for something out of the ordinary, then I invite you to take a look. You may just find something you like.

"The Odd and The Beautiful Curiosity Shop" rose out of my desire to connect my artwork to a special audience, and provide a way for people with a love of fantasy and a desire to explore the unknown to get their hands on some truly unique items. For a while now, it has been a dream of mine to own and operate an old world curiosity shop - the kind with things in jars, shrunken heads, and books that may or may not contain real magic. So I guess this is the first step to that. This is my collection of curiosities - all pulled from my imagination, and delivered to you in the comforts of your home computer screen (or mobile device). The work I create can be broken down into two categories - Two Dimensional and Three Dimensional. Both of which are creepy, but beautiful in they're own way.

My work can be seen in person in a smattering of galleries across the U.S. And if you are one of the lucky few who live in Austin, Texas then you have the unique opportunity to visit my studio on the Second Saturday of every month from 11 to 5pm. What's that? You need the address? Well, it's 2309 Thornton Road Studio J, 78704. Now that you have that information, will you have the courage to act on it? I guess we'll see.
