Sitting in front of more than 60 new color samples of acrylic color powders, my head starts spinning and adrenalin starts pumping. I feel like a little girl in a candy store ! It's finally narrowed down to 48 colors and now begins my journey of making a difference with the designs that I'm about the create with these new amazing colors which will now be part of the ONE new acrylic collection by Odyssey.
To make art wearable, encapsulated or embedded art is not only long lasting and stunning in appearance, it gives a "looking into glass" effect. I'm taking it one step further to introduce movement, layering and realism into my embedded art which is all created with brushwork in acrylic and still maintain a reasonable thin finish.

Cheers to the New Year 2011! It's time to celebrate life and reflect on new resolutions.
I've been searching for inspirations during the holidays and feel anxious to get back to work again. This year, I will be releasing a series of nail design classes for miniature folk art painting available in both paint and gel medium. I am especially intrigued by Russian folk art styles and so I've incorporated a fusion between the eastern and western folk art styles to my designs. Strong and vivid colors are used with lots of layering to create depths and movements to make the designs look delicate and lively.
