Over the last decade and a half, I have worked with and illustrated in every style of graphic art imaginable–whimsical, feminine, country, folk, contemporary–you name it, I’ve made it. As I began to build a portfolio of my artwork, I concentrated on modern graphics and feminine themes, mostly because they are so pretty and so much fun to make. But I still love to work in other styles. So last year, I started playing with some montage styles. This is the style that Oopsy Daisy has applied to a new line of canvas wall art.
The series of montage art is called Victorian Details. It is now available at the Oopsy Daisy online shop. The are three sets of the art available, pictured below. All of the pieces mix found illustrations, original illustrations, and modern graphics.
This first group features classic illustrations of african animals. I am excited about the colors in these pieces, as well as the juxtaposition of old world art and modern geometric backgrounds.
The next group features garden creatures. Urban gardens and small-scale farming both inspire me. Also, I love bees. My sister and her husband have three or four hives this year. It is amazing to hear their stories! They are also the owners and operators of Meadow Creature, a company that produces products for small-scale and organic farms.
The last group revisits vintage cut paper silhouettes. Again, I like the mix of the old style and the contemporary geometrics and color. These pieces can be personalized on the Oopsy Daisy site, or they can be ordered without the personalization.
