Announcement   Welcome to ZouZou's Basement!! I hope you will come here to get a healthy dose of visual enrichment!

I have moved most of my greeting cards and other paper items to my other shop, ZouZousBasementToo -- so be sure to mosey on over there. Here is the link: www.etsy.com/shop/ZouZousbasementToo. Sale paper items are also in that shop.

Items here are grouped by subject matter, and if prints and cards are available in addition to the original piece, they are listed immediately after the original.

My sections are cards, prints, collages and paintings, and also daily paintings. I started doing daily paintings last summer. I get up at 5:30 and paint for an hour each morning (okay, some mornings I don't make it...). I start and finish a new painting in that hour, mostly in oils. Not only is it great practice for me, but Its also a chance to try out new themes, techniques, colors.... The pieces are small -- 6"x6" or 8"x8", and priced very affordably at $85.00. I also post them daily on Facebook and Instagram, www.facebook.com/zouzousbasement and www.instagram.com/zouzousbasement.

If you see an item on my website (www.zouzousbasement.com) but not here, email me about availability (susannah_3@yahoo.com). Are you local? To save shipping costs, I will simply refund your shipping charges and hand deliver.
Enjoy!

About

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.
