Announcement   "flame and shadow" art, imagination, & dreams ~

Mixed media original art, original paintings, drawings & art prints ~ by farah aria

My career is as a whimsical and multicultural children's illustrator for books, magazines and products, but here at "flame and shadow" I explore other forms and mediums of art, and use mixed media such as sumi-e brushes, ephemera from vintage books, indian ink, watercolor, pencils, pastels, charcoal and encaustics. You will find original art, original paintings, drawings & art prints.

"flame and shadow" the burning light of creativity and times of darkness in imagination, emotion, and dreams.

“flame and shadow" is the title of one of my favorite book of poems by Sara Teasdale.

Although I am drawn to whimsy and light, I equally have a romantic, and sometimes dark, moody inner life.
Storytelling in all forms ~ lyrics, literature, poetry, photography, dance, film...moves me deeply.
Words...music...sounds, even smells, can spark visions in my imagination.
I’m haunted by hyper realistic film-like dreams. All of which I’d like to explore in my art.
I hope you enjoy what comes along!

Additional policies and FAQs
CARE AND PRESENTATION OF ARTWORK:
Artwork that is created or includes watercolors, gouache, charcoal or pastels will require framing under glass to protect it from moisture. Moisture can ruin artwork, especially accidental spills or even spit (eww…I know…but it happens).

Artwork created using waterproof materials only, such as gesso and acrylic paint can stand alone, especially if painted on canvas or wood cradled canvas. It is ready to hang.

Flat artwork may look best matted and framed. Especially if painted on paper. It will look even better matted and framed.

Art Prints look best matted and framed. Some can be put right into a store bought frame with no matting. It is your choice.

ALL artwork should be kept out of direct sunlight to prevent damage and fading.

You will receive detailed information on the care of your purchase included in your package!
