underwater wheelchair

why can't this be me?

"In this dream-like video, British artist Susan Austin pilots her specially modified wheelchair underwater. Austin, a wheelchair user since 1996, modified the wheelchair for underwater use with dive thrusters, control surfaces, and flotation. The wheelchair is part of Austin’s ongoing Freewheeling project, which focuses on the intersection of art and disability. Austin and her wheelchair will be featured in a series of video and live performance events in the UK, August 29 through September 9."

"mom and kodi" commission

 a commission i was more than happy to make for a girl whose mother passed away.  her mom lost a lot of weight, and there are no recent photos of her and her dog kodi... so there's where i came in.  they were beach bums, so instead of doing a literal beach background, i did the suggestion of one which i think fits more with the style of the painting.  i was happy to make something special for someone to remember a loved one.

wiener dog cupcakes

 i was commissioned to make these cupcakes for a coworker recently. wiener dog cupcakes! she gave me a photo to copy from, so sadly i can't take credit for the design.  this was my first attempt with fondant, and i had literally no idea what i was doing. i just kind of winged it and i think it came out cute. maybe i'll try more fondant in the future, but i prefer the taste and look of some good ol' messy icing.
