Premiere 23 Artist Mandi Ainsworth

A good friend of mine, Mandi Ainsworth, introduced me to Alexis Boots. Mandi works primarily with beads; something that requires great attention to detail and a flourishing creativity. Mandi is incredibly ambitious and has recently gone full-time with her bead business, Bead Circle, and has lofty goals. I have every confidence she’ll accomplish them!

A cute bracelet crafted by Mandi. She does necklaces, as well.

Mandi doesn’t restrict herself to beading, though, she also dallies here and there in the craft of book-making. For those who haven’t done it: it’s a tedious task that requires a lot of patience.

Mandi also teaches others the art of beading and will, in the near future, host seminars and classes across the United States. Be sure to check her Web site, www.beadcircle.com, for more information and great resources on beading.

Premiere 23 Artist Alexis Ann Boots

I’m lucky to be a friend of the lovely lady behind the swank galas and sensual art: Miss Alexis Boots. She’s a driven and perceptive individual who sets the bar high for herself and accomplishes great things. I have no doubt that her new event planning company, Red Kru Productions will do at least as well as the art galas she hosts.

She’s kind enough to host my art at her galas, so the least I can do is feature her first!

From Alexis’ Web site:

I have always had a flare for the dramatic which earned me the nick name Hollywood at home. No surprise that I enjoy expressing myself through charcoal since it is so motile.  I can push it around on a canvas to make scenes that capture the raw beauty of human sensuality.

Alexis is happy to accomodate requests for art commissions and will soon have prints of her work available, so be sure to keep current with her goings-on by signing up on her recently launched Web site, www.alexissutra.com!

Sneak Peek for Premiere 23

September 2, 2011 in Uncategorized by KellyJacobi

I’ve been working hard on new pieces to show at Premiere 23 later this month. Here are a couple of sneak peeks:

The earliest these little pretties will be available for sale is September 23 at Premiere 23. After that I’ll make them available to the public at large.

I’m also working on some larger paintings on cedar panels. I’m pretty excited about those.

I think once this show is done I’ll start looking for options to show in galleries; groups shows at first, I think. Any tips on going about it gracefully?
