The Curious Kitchen up-date

My new Etsy shop The Curious Kitchen has been slowly coming along. I admit that I neglected it  a bit during the holiday season but am happy to say I am now giving it my full attention! This shop features more decorative prints of paintings done in gouache on paper that reflect my love of vintage illustration and collectibles. Here are some new additions: parrot-portraits


These two parrot portraits were adapted from a textile design of mine. I never tire of painting parrots, I find them to have the most expressive faces and of course the most beautiful colors!

Parrot Damask

Rooster PortraitsThese four rooster prints were also adapted from one of my textile designs. I think roosters are so cheery.My Mother had decorative rooster trivets hanging in our kitchen back in South Philly and I think that must be what inspired me.
