A handmade coaster with original Artwork by April Alayne available just in time for the holidays!

This coaster is handmade by April herself and by hired local crafters in her neighborhood.
Each coaster is carefully put together with love and care! And each coaster purchased helps an independent artist be employed for the season.

These ceramic coasters are 4.5 X 4.5 inches and sealed with a protective coating. The backs are hand cut soft 100% black polyester felt and provide a cushion and non scratch backing to protect your table tops.

These coasters make a wonderful gift and recommended in sets of 4! You can have a nautical theme, a beard theme, a woodland theme or simply pick your favorites for you or family and friends. They make an interesting conversation piece and a unique collection for your home.

To my artsy blog followers,

I am sorry it has been a while! Life has been so very hectic and wonderfully wild! I have been a traveling gypsy with the Villan Arts Tattoo gang selling my artwork along the way! These shows have been beyond wonderful with the new people I meet and the having my work really fit in. I feel like this lost kitten has found her home.

Darwin’s Daughter.

This is my new addition to my girls collection “Darwin’s Daughter”, I named her Cheli.

I have been asked by many to create a mermaid and this is what I came up with.  Ok so Cheli is not really your typical mermaid illustration but I enjoy the way she turned out.  I got whisked away on the classic story of the siren pining to be on land but with this illustration it dabbles with the thoughts of evolution as well. Like her sisters she is strongly influenced by floriography and symbolism. The Chelindonium plant in the lost language of flowers means the joys to come and compliments the Angraecum sesquipedale plant ( Darwin’s orchid) that represents hope.  The very suggestive Japanese flying fish is a symbol of time and stages of evolution. This being said Cheli I feel is the classic story of  The little mermaid with a scientific twist.

Cheli, will be available on Etsy very soon but in the mean time check out her sisters and other prints!

Have a great night every one.
