About zouzousbasement

Sales 1,543
On Etsy since 2007

Color is my daylong obsession, joy, and torment (Claude Monet).

ZouZou was the name of my grandmother, and it was in her basement that I first found items to paint. Ironically, my studio is in my attic. It is filled with paint, paper, ribbon, and all sorts of ephemera. Organized chaos. Color and whimsy make me feel happy and alive, and I try to see the bright side whenever I can. So many people have told me they have one of my paintings in their bathroom that I have declared myself Virginia's first Toilet Artist (maybe the world's first). I tend to work in series to fully explore an idea I may have, so if you see a type of painting you like but are unable to get it, most likely another one of the sort will be along soon. I can't stand to throw anything away, so it is natural that leftover paper from my notecards end up on my paintings. I stay busy making things every day (and also teach ages 4 - 94), and often do commissions. Be sure to check out my other, paper-only shop on etsy, ZouZousBasementToo, and there is also more info on my website, www.zouzousbasement.com.
