NCECA emerging artist Lauren Mabry.
Today I received a parcel from the incredibly talented artist, Jesi. Jesi and I have been internet friends for quite some time now and first began trading parcels sometime earlier last year. If you’ve seen her work online, you know that her style is just stunning. Everything is bright, happy, fun, and often nostalgic. Every photo I’ve seen of her paintings are flawless but I will tell you what I learned today— they don’t do the work justice. Her painting skills are so incredible and you need to be holding her art in your hands in order to take in all of the glory. Her blending of color, her pristine lines, the special something that’s just….hers.
If you are looking for a gift for someone, or wanting to treat yourself— I urge you to check out her store. When you buy handmade, you’re not just buying an object. You’re investing in someone’s dream.
She’s honestly one of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.

My early visual development for Frozen. In this version the Snow Queen (a diva) was frozen when we met her. This is research for what that would have looked like.
