A Little Self-Promotion...

Hey everyone! I just added a couple of new handpainted signs to my art shop, please check them out!

On another note, I will not be listing anything new for awhile, as I've decided to get down to work on some new artwork, and it will be taking me awhile. I'd like to do some collage paintings and I really want them to look awesome so I'm going to put quite a bit of time and effort into them.

Featured Sellers- IndigoTwin

This week I am featuring Indigo Twin, one of my favorite Etsy shops! I hope you enjoy their work as much as I do!

Indigo twin hails from small town Maine. We are Kirsten and Cortney, identical twin sisters who have always enjoyed creating art together. From crayon rubbings as small children to works of art as adults, we have always given each other inspiration. We both graduated from the University of Maine with Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in 1998. Both of us try to get some crafting done when our small children are sleeping.... Cortney has three young children 5, 3,and 1 and Kirsten has one child who is 14 months. Kirsten works full time as an art teacher where she teaches k-12 students. Cortney runs the indigotwin business and teaches competitive figure skating. We dream of one day hosting artist retreats at our family compound in Maine where we have log cabin rentals, a beautiful river to fish or kayak and over 200 acres of pure, rustic nature.

New Website!

I have recently put the finishing touches on my new portfolio website (yay!) I used which is an awesome free flash website maker with loads of goodies. To check it out follow this link:

Please let me know what you think!

On another note, I have added a new handpainted sign to my shop! It is based on a quote from Maurice Sendak's awesome book "Where the Wild Things Are" and would make a great Valentine's day gift for the little monster in your life!

Caw! Caw!

Hello, and welcome to The Raven's Caw, a blog about being a starving artist trying to make it in the world, and all the daily struggles and celebrations that come with the territory. On the right you will see links to my two websites where I sell my artwork and jewelry. Occasionally I will feature a fellow Etsyian who's work I enjoy, and I will also post new items listed in my own shops!

The image above is my newest listing "Reaching Out" This photograph was taken in Elizabeth Park in West Hartford, CT. It is available in 8" x 10" for $20, with free shipping worldwide!
