Tidbits | Xenotees

Xenotees wearable art has a bold and modern graphic style which I love.
My personal favorites: the XX chromosomes and the giant saw blade!
I wanted to know a bit more about the artist,
so I asked her a few questions, little snippets and tidbits.

Meet Noëlle B. the artist and designer of Xenotees:
If you had to choose another profession, what would you do? 

If you could be any character in fiction, who would you be?
That’s a tough one. Probably Wonder Woman.

What book are you currently reading? 

Do you listen to music while you work? Who is on your playlist now? 
When I’m not listening to NPR, anything from 
Simon and Garfunkel to Gary Numan to Judas Priest. 
I listen to a really wide range of music! 

Who is your favorite fashion designer? 
Oh, I don’t even know!  

If you could choose any artist in the world, 
who would you choose to paint, sculpt, photograph your portrait? 
Camille Claudel 

You can find Noëlle's work here:

Fanciful Flying Creatures

Green Butterflip
Golden Katydid
Mint Green Flying Stick 
Green Spotted Damselfly

This is my collection of  Fanciful Flying Creatures
I have three sets available in my shop.
I am working on some larger pieces and commissions.
Sometimes I need to take a break and work on something else.
These insects were a great diversion!

Little signs of life. Crocus are blooming. 
I've been slightly distracted. There is so much to do outside!

I'll show you what I've been working on tomorrow!

March Day

Blue skies on this March day.
The Magnolias are still dormant.

The pods have a fuzzy, suede texture
and an intriguing artichoke-like shape.
I collected a few that had fallen to the ground.

Let Me Tell You

Let me tell you about the birds and the bees 
and the flowers and the trees.

I have been waiting patiently.
I think spring has finally sprung!

Imaginary Birds

New feathery plumes in my shop!
I am wondering what these imaginary birds
would look like with such fancy feathers.

I might have to paint them and find out.

I just returned from Sedona. It was unusually rainy.
A little dusting of snow and mist on the peaks.
Such spectacular views!

While the change in scenery was great, I am so happy to be home.
Thank you all for posting such great comments for my giveaway.
I was thoroughly entertained!
