Trees

While I haven't had as much time as I wish I did, I have been slowly working on a new project these past few months.

They are simple black paper x-acto cut trees from all over the world with bits of symbolism and folklore within them.

Here are a few of my favorites, the Willow, Larch, and QuincePicture 3 Picture 8 Picture 9

I do have 11 x 14 and 11 x 17 prints available for $15 each, as well as cards for $3 each/ 4 for $10, just email me (katieskau@gmail.com)

A few weeks ago I also had the amazing experience of meeting Neil Gaiman, I attended a book reading/ signing for The Ocean at The End of The Lane, (which is so so beautiful) and was able to give him some of my art. As some of you might know he is a huge inspiration to my work and it meant alot to me to be able to share it with him. He was so kind and humble and I even got a kiss!!! Truly magic...

ALSO I found out this week that I will be showing in the Summer Small Works Salon Show at the Greenpoint Gallery!

I will show 3 or 4 of my dollhouse pieces, so you should all come if you are in Brooklyn! It will be free!

Liz Calvi & The Mark Twain House

I realized this week that I never posted the amazing photos that Liz took of myself and my dollhouse at The Mark Twain House.

You can read my original post about Liz here!

To summarize though, Liz and I had the amazing opportunity to take photos in The Mark Twain House in Hartford, CT. We thought that the house would be a great pairing with the Victorian style of the dollhouse.

Here are a few of the favorite photos:

And hopefully you will see more collaborations between the two of us in the near future!

A Buffalo Creature

So tonight I wanted to share more of an update about the buffalo I posted a few weeks ago, it is coming along slowly,

but the next time I post about it, it will be finished and hanging on my wall.

I am enjoying this series as an escape from the strong narrative that surrounded my work so much when I was in school, while I don't think I will ever fully get away from narrative it does feel fresh to me.
