A little glimpse into my world...
My studio is where I collect things that inspire me and fuel my creative process. From collecting antique hand colored prints from the early 1800's to real butterflies, beetles, eggs, nests, sea specimen, feathers and many other gifts provided by mother nature, that upon close inspection and study make my heart beat a little faster. My work is derived from my true appreciation and gleeful delight in the finest detail of these small and intricate specimen. It is a celebration of how fantastic these little things really are when you take the time to REALLY see the detail.
"LET EQUALITY BLOOM" was selected by the Amplifier Foundation
and Women's March and is currently on a traveling exhibition
called "HEAR OUR VOICE"
Over one hundred artworks submitted to the Women’s March open call were curated for a nationally touring exhibition titled HEAR OUR VOICE. Each piece of art has a story, each artist had an intention, and together they continue to inspire and galvanize women’s rights activists.
HEAR OUR VOICE:
Let Equality Bloom is currently being used by the Amplifier Foundation in schools to educate children on the importance of Women's Rights and Human Rights. I am thankful to have my art be apart of this educational platform. I am deeply grateful to the Amplifier Foundation for their support.
* LET EQUALITY BLOOM was accepted as part of the Amplifier curation of Women's March posters to go into the Library of Congress. I am so honored to be apart of this historic event.

13 Artists Discuss Their Art From Last Year's Women's March
Last year, over 50 intersectional artists worked with Amplifier,
an organization giving voices to female-identified and gender non-conforming artists.
By Whitney Bell
Oppression is felt in many ways, and it can feel inescapable. If history has taught us anything, it’s that in times of political turmoil the arts will inevitably flourish; bystanders turn into leaders and artists turn into activists. And Amplifier is here to help give those artists a platform. This inspiring organization is teaming up with the Women’s March for the second time to elevate the voices and visions of creatives across the country.
Last year Amplifier gathered inspiring works from over 50 intersectional artists to create posters and campaigns for the Women’s March on Washington, and this month they have launched Power To The Polls, an open-call for all female-identified and gender nonconforming US artists (no documentation needed). The winners will receive $200, and will be picked by the top activists in the country, including Women’s March organizers, Carmen Perez Sarah Sophie Flicker, and the notorious Little Miss Flint.
We’ve rounded up 13 body positive, identity affirming artists and their works from last year’s powerful campaign, to inspire you to pick up a brush, or bust out your photoshop skills. The submission deadline is February 28th, and the voices of the youth are massively important, so let yours be heard!
L.A. at Home
Brooke Fischer's wonderful graphic paintings of butterflies, bugs and dragonflies are small enough to fit not only under the tree but also in a stocking. You'll find Fischer's paintings at Henry Road, designer Paula Smail's pint-sized store in Studio City.
