Artwork: Treo of Trees, Callie Hirsch
About a year ago, Tom Theuns from a band by the name of Aurelia emailed me to ask if he could use one of my paintings, Treo of Trees, for his CD art. I said sure! Just give me credit and list my website. I figured that it would give me some nice exposure and help out muscians in need of colorful art! I received this in the mail today, direct from Belgium. How exciting it is to see your art as part of another artform.

We started in La Coruna and traveled North to San Sebastian, land of many tapas "pintxos"bars. Located in Spanish Basque Country. Simply a delicious place to unwind and make new discoveries.
To view more photos of this fantastical journey.
Traveling is so very different from my 9-5 work life. It is incredibly wonderful to have the opportunity to get away and explore how others live, experience the many different cultures, and learn to depend on yourself and others for survival.

Callie Art on Etsy featuring a new line of wallet art. All wallets are unique, one of a kind, and hand painted by Callie.
Joining the collection of mini surfboards and hand painted on paper artwork, these one of a kind painted wallets are great accessories to one’s life. Using iridescent acrylic paint, each wallet is a beautiful piece of art. Created in the style of pointillism, and dedicated to the Aboriginals of Australia.

While traveling in London, I did a photoshoot of a skate park under the Tate Modern. Boys in school uniforms were hanging out with the street skaters. I was mesmorized by the grafitti, the skaters and the idea of creating boards to evoke the moment of action. Above are two of the resulting boards inspired by this environment.

Art reception, the artists role. Switch to "schmoozing" mode. A good way to get your feet wet in doing this is to be in a group show. All the focus is not on you, as it would be in a solo show. I watch for someone viewing my work and move in and talk with them. At this show I opened with "the darkness of the background reminds me of space, which leaves you feeling the sensation of vastness". The man I was speaking with totally picked up on this, and started a discussion with me about the piece without even realizing I was the artist. He just saw me as a friendly fellow patron of the arts enjoying some insight. I also spent some time getting to know the other artists, in a juried show such as this one, you have no idea about who you will be sharing the walls with. Everyone has a story to tell, just start asking questions.

My quest for exploration lies within the fantastical universe within our seas.
As a teenager, I had my first scuba diving adventure. My father had a friend who was an underwater photographer. For a week, we lived on a sailboat in the Virgin Islands and dove shipwrecks twice a day. I will never forget how completely taken I was by the variety and vibrancy of life living just beneath the surface.
I became a Rockaway Artist Alliance member before I moved to Brooklyn. I had a friend in Carroll Gardens who really wanted a sticker for her car to be able to park at Fort Tilden without getting a ticket. She brought me to meetings in exchange for this sticker. Fort Tilden offered a very dynamic community rich in art, theatre and gardening. It contained an aura of a place where magical happenings were inspired, and creative souls are celebrated.
Both of my parents were raised in Brooklyn. They were already familiar with the magic the sea offered to the beachcomber. My dad would capture all types of creatures from the ocean and put them in his fish tank for observation. They instilled this love of nature into their four children. That love is very evident in my artwork.
