Now through mother’s day (also my birthday day!) buy one print and get another of your choice FOR FREE!

I am having this sale to help me get to ARTSCAPE , one of the largest art festivals on the east coast.
Having trying to get in for 4 years this year I finally got in!! I plan to have a whole new look and display to make shopping easier for my new friends.

Please head on over to AlwaysApril.Etsy.com to pick up your new art prints.
If you are a fan of the art but do not wish to own prints but would like to help out simply spread the word! That would be the best of help.

Now if you are feeling extra sassy there is a little piggy donate button to the right of my website, any little bit helps.

 I am in the process of listing all my illustration pendants and lockets on Etsy!

 I hope soon to follow with all my handmade rings… I should probably get a manicure before that though.

But as always, thank you all so very much for the love! I am so fortunate to be doing my own thing and I owe it all to you! win

Hoops & Prints- a new kind of picture frame

So as you all know I have been drawing my fingers off this past month.

I am in the process of making my very 1st collection that I am proud of and I well on my way.

Who needs art school? I have books, the internet and determination!

My goal in 2012? Get better.

I will have prints available  hopefully by next week if not sooner!

In the mean time I have created a new type of a print.

I have taken my illustrations and printed them on a fine piece of cream canvas and fastened them in an embroidery hoop. A little different for your wall decor.

These will be handmade by order.  They can be customized to your liking. So if you would like a different image in your hoop I am more then happy to create something personal for you!

For sale now is “Coriander” Prints and Hoop Prints

I hope you enjoy!

Have a great night everyone.

Dahlia

Dignity, elegance, forever thine.

Let me Intorduce to you Dahlia.

 

Dahlia is another member of my twins and hair obsession collection. Created with graphite mainly a .7 HB. But unlike the others this one was created on Strathmore medium drawing paper. I am not sure this is my weapon of choice. I prefer a nice thick texture to my paper.

Does anyone have a favorite they would like to share?

Wishing everyone a great night,

April

 

Also… have you seen this?  Yes… its a Bearcat. I cant handle this cuteness.

 

Happy Halloween…

The Keepers

Yep. You heard me.

I finally finished my Halloween piece for you fine folks. Merry Christmas.

The Boyfriend got me a lot of new art fancies, mostly pencils, because I enjoy that medium most at the moment.

This piece is a part of the twins/ hair obsession collection.  thoughts?

I hope you enjoy.

Also I hope you enjoy your New Year.

Always,

April

p.s. if you get this tattooed on your body let me see it when you and your artist are done.

Bound.

Recently I have been obsessed with twins and hair. I have many in the works and cant wait to make a nice collection of these ladies to share with you.

Let me introduce to you my new set of twins.

“BOUND”


This illustration is routed by sisterhood.

Being a fan of  florigraphy the flowers in their hair are the Snow Ball flower. In Elizabethan times this particular flower represented bound and attachment.

That is all I will say about this piece. Giving it all away is never fun.

Professional prints (unlike this image…) will be available on Alwaysapril.etsy.com in due time.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day.

May 11th… what am I up to?

Posted on

On May 11th 1987 around 2am  my dear sister  Kimberly (or womb mate as I like to call her) and I emerged from our mothers full belly and today we celebrate!

Well, actually I don’t know what she is up to but my celebrating involves putting real butter on my toast without guilt and not doing my hair or makeup…these things please me.

I have been a busy bee working on all sorts of new items for my shops and bulking up old favorites  for the DC Craft Mafia Spring Thing Craft Show! This will be my 1st ever craft show and however nervous I get my excitement will overpower! I have been rocking out some new jewelry with the wonderful help of my talented friend Lauren! I will blog about it when I have finished the whole collection. Also I have been focusing more on my Antler art! Trying to make them smaller, portable, and more affordable! And, as always, Slumber Jack. I have been working on Slumber Jack Jr! Thats right… baby Slumber Jack.

They will all be available in DC on the 21st!

My studio

Slumber Jacks Birth place

Check out all the neat people who have signed up to showcase their talent! I am so excited to be rocking it out next to all sorts of nifty people on Saturday May 21st!

Dc Craft Mafia

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Always,

April
