Wheee! What a great, little print of the ever-awesome Neko Case. My package arrived lightning-fast and secured perfectly between two pieces of cardboard. Thanks again!

About

Because Nobody Told Her She Couldn't

It comes naturally for me to paint on scrap wood - my great grandmother, Loy Brown, used almost exclusively various reclaimed pieces of wood as the base for her lifelong passion for painting in South Georgia. Like Brown, I also have a tendency to paint animals. They just make sense to me. (Except for bears. It is a running joke in our household that I can only draw bears if it is an accident.)

I started working with the "insides of things" as I began to take apart my worldview and put it back together. What I found, curled up in the crevices of bones and sleeping in knotted sinews, was an infrastructure of stories and memories, connotations and layers of mythologies. I have come to believe that we humans are almost entirely composed of stories that shape the way we behave and the way we perceive the world around us.

I hope to hear your stories as I share mine with you!

    I've been making up stories for a very long time (thank goodness for Fisher Price tape recorders!) and I don't show signs of stopping. These visual stories just kind of pour out of my hands when I least expect it. From my mind to my pen to your home!

Shop policies

The Rules I Live By:
1. Keep moving.
2. Make a damn thing.
3. Do it well.
4. Take care of your tools.
5. Be brave.

Here at Foxtrot it is all about the story in something. I use recycled or reclaimed materials to paint on about 85% of the time, but I'd rather it was more. The "new to me" stuff makes it more fun to try and tell my stories on. I prefer irregular shapes, but I use whatever materials I can get...
When you find a piece that resonates with you, please tell me about it! I would love to hear the stories that you have!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
The preferred method of payment is Paypal, just for simplicity's sake. If this is a problem for you, please contact me and we can work something out.
Shipping
Items ordered by 7PM EST will be shipped within two business days, unless otherwise stated in the listing. I usually use USPS, but if you would prefer another shipping method, that can be arranged as well, with shipping costs adjusted to meet your needs. I will send a confirmation email when your piece has been sent, so you can sit by the mailbox and wait for the parcel!
Refunds and Exchanges
Foxtrot will provide full refunds for items damaged during the shipping process. If an item arrives in unusable condition, please take a picture of it and contact me so that we can work things out. I will not be responsible, however, for pet destruction or damages sustained once the item is in your possession.
Additional policies and FAQs
The majority of listings are going to be OOAK, but some may be available as prints, and prints available in other sizes. Contact me and we'll work it out.
