HAF Artist Twas Brillig




Another of our many talented artists from the Handmade Artists Forum is Nancy Rawlinson, of Twas Brillig, who lives and works in Southern Pines, North Carolina. Nancy is a visual artist as well as a jewelry artist, and the purple cow picture I have posted is my absolute favorite painting of hers, and the bracelet is also a favorite. You just have to love a gal who will paint a purple cow, and sell it at that. She IS after all, adorable as she can be. Her Alice in Wonderland series of paintings are well executed, playful, whimsical and refreshing, not something you see every day. I have followed Nancy on Twitter and Facebook since I first met her, due largely to a sense of humor I dearly love. Not to mention that she loves to "kidnap" me on Facebook, LOL! Nancy's jewelry is just as beautiful as her paintings, a more wearble art form, which is stylish and gorgeous. You can follow Nancy's Twas Brillig Blog to view more artworks in progress, such as Myrtle the Turtle. Be sure also to visit her Etsy shop, The Tulgey Wood, to treat yourself to one of her beautiful jewelry creations!
