Words cannot express how much joy and humour this painting brings me everyday. It makes me smile whenever I look at it. It makes my children giggle and my husband’s eyes twinkle. Priceless. I also want to add that the seller is a dream to deal with- quick communication, very accommodating to my inquiries. The art was packaged very securely. Everything arrived without a ding, dent, or scratch. The quality of the print is lovely- lovely satin finish paper, beautiful rich colours.

This painting reminds me so much of my beautiful mother. When I was little, we didn’t have a lot of money. My mom would make me gifts by hand- stuffed animals and dolls, clothes, blankets. I never was left wanting for anything because of her love. Thank you for capturing this kind of selfless love in your painting. My heart swells whenever I look at this incredible woman you have created.

From the moment I saw Liese Chavez’s art, I was in love. Whimsical, dreamy, full of humour, emotion, and beauty. She paints characters that look like they have the most intriguing tales to tell. I want my fortune told by “Gypsy Bear”. I want to open the door of “The Birdhouse” and sit by her cozy fireplace. I want to wear a sweater knitted “With Love”. Thank you for transporting my mind to different fantastical places with your art. Your creativity is a gift.

About

Down the Rabbit Hole we Go...

When I was small, I remember lying on my back under a side table in my Grandparents' house. The tabletop was a round slab of marble, out of which grew a lamp with lead crystal teardrops dangling from a filigree bloom. There was a circlet of these crystals beneath the lamp as well and I watched the front parlor glow in the half-light reflected from these tiny worlds of faceted glass. In that private world just a few inches from the floor, the chairs all had carved feet on the bottom and way above me near the ceiling I could see the undersides of little animal faces in the corners of the moldings. I would climb up the steep stairs to the dusty attic with crates of 45 records and the secret-seeming low doors to mysterious things in storage in the eaves. Sometimes I would hide myself in the tiny sewing room under the stairs or spend hours pawing through Grammy’s costume jewelry, trying on clip-on earrings and peeking into lockets. One day I came into my grandparents’ house and everything looked different. The tiny details were still there, but I was too tall to see them so intimately anymore. Some of the magic had disappeared. I have been trying to get back to that magical world ever since.
This is where my heart is home. These paintings and drawings hold all the nostalgia and strange faces of my past. As a child I wanted to know what was inside, what was under, what was behind things. I still do.
Climb the steep attic stairs with me, let the smell of old faded minks tickle your nose and peek with me up onto the high shelf filled with hatboxes and secrets…
