I was going through some favorite links I sent to friends almost six months ago and I came across Stephanie Toppin over on art-milk: she is a painter who also works with lines of thread and sewing. She has such interesting work and it is just so full of color explosions you can imagine it almost dripping right off the screen. In some paintings I feel like I can see trees and the sky… It’s amazing, abstract, gorgeous, free-flowing work. It is candy for the eye!
Plus, I am always a big fan of helping others find jewelry that they can wear; and she makes jewelry that is nickel free, just like I do! So, definitely check out the link to her etsy shop below if you want the style without the …rash. Her work promises to beautify and naturalize. :)
