April Featured Artist; Rebekah Simensen

The April featured artist is Madison painter and illustrator, Rebekah Simensen, aka “Ninjagrl”. Rebekah tells the story of Ninjagrl and her pet turtle through her paintings. Ninjagrl is based on the real-life story of Rebekah and her cat named Turtle. Turtle proved to be a loyal companion and unending source of inspiration, in addition, her time spent as a volunteer at the Seattle Aquarium opened her eyes to the wonders of the ocean world. She hopes to emulate the aquarium’s mission in her own, small way – to inspire conservation of our marine environment by providing glimpses of the amazing creatures that live there in her unique ninja style.
Rebekah’s artist reception will be held Friday, April 10th from 6-9pm. The show will run for the month of April.

Upcycled Art at Hatch

As many of you know, the deadline to the EcoSquared Art Show is November 21st. I thought I’d share with you some of the artwork in the gallery that incorporates upcycled materials. Upcycled is still a fairly new term, you can learn more here. And remember, the main criteria for Ecosquared is to use something upcycled, have it measure between 6″ square to 8″ square, and have it ready to hang on the wall. We are so excited to see what all of you creative Wisconsinites come up with! Please feel free to leave questions or concerns here in the comment section.

Reclaimed steel and spray paint. “Birds on a Wire” artist Liv Aanrud.

Specialized Art…

A couple of weeks ago, I finally was able to deliver this custom built mirror. It was quite a process but I love a challenge! First, I went to the buyer’s house and checked out the space they had in mind for the mirror. After we decided on a size, 3’x4′, I went to the Habitat for Humanity Restore and after numerous trips and lots of digging, I found some wood house siding that I hoped was wide enough for the frame. I’m pretty handy, but not as much as my friend Bryan who has skills with a saw that I will never have. He put together a fantastic frame…better than I imagined. After many more weeks of painting it was time for the placement of the mirror. Again, Bryan helped out. Cutting super thick glass is not easy! Cracks can easily occur and he broke a couple large pieces. Ugh.  After a lucky find at the thrift store… one more try and he cut the mirror perfectly! I was a little nervous since I had promised delivery the following morning…

I forgot to mention that one of the buyer’s (Susan and David) requests was for maps to be incorporated in the painting of their favorite places. It is definitely THEIR piece! I wish I had a photo of the mirror installed…hopefully soon.

If you’d like a custom piece of art, let me know! As for now, I have started a painting on a wood headboard I found on the curb. One man’s trash is a future work of art!

Frame done, before mirror.
