Happy Valentine's Day

Love is in the air and on the walls!

Many of the works in this Teeny Tiny Art Show convey romance...

Shelley Kommers is a Los Angeles-based artist and illustrator. Collage and mixed-media are her favorite mediums and she draws inspiration from daydreams, nature and her everyday life. Shelley currently lives in a cottage in the woods with her husband and her four-year-old daughter. She also has a delightful blog, oiseaux (she loves birds!).

This piece is called "The Math Teacher is in Love" and I LOVE it (I wonder what the story behind this piece is...hmmm)

In her own words: "I'm always on the lookout for beauty, and I find it everywhere: in the decayed, the imperfect and the ironic; in the small tucked away places no one else looks.

My work is inspired by memories, the natural world and my own inner stories. My work is about the poetry that lives beneath the surface of things." - Shelley Kommers

And nothing says romace more than a big beautiful bouquet of red flowers!

Dustan Knight has received wide acclaim for her large-scale expressive florals -- I twisted her arm to do a special series of teeny tiny paintings for this show, they are quite sweet (no watering or wilting).

Abby Glassenberg has been working away on her book (to come out in the next year), she found the time to make a collection of lovely handmade soft/mixed-media sculptures for Valentine's Day.

Birds of several varieties, including a quail, two wrens, and a sweet little bird in a white downy nest make up the majority of the collection. Each bird has a linen heart tag with metallic thread. There was also a white bird perched on a blooming, embellished branch which has already gone to a lovely home.
All of the works here are available in our Teeny Tiny online shop! Spread the love today and everyday, cheers,
