Mona Lisa

P3280357I am working on an art show for Santa Cruz artists to participate in called “The Mona Lisa”

I thought it would be a fun thing to get up to 50 artists to create their version, interpretation or Mona Lisa inspired piece in any medium they choose. So hoping to see some very cool creative work from our very talented local artists!

I am pretty close to finishing up mine and here is a wee little peek at her! We are planning an event at one of the many local wineries here in Santa Cruz! Stockwell Winery has come on board to host it. They have a grand space to hold all the artwork. We are planning a “First Friday” in September tentatively!!

SO keep your eyes peeled to come to the show if your local or I will be posting many photos of all the work after the fact!!

I have been artistic in one way or another all my life. Growing up in a creative family fueled my desire towards being an artist. I moved to Santa Cruz, CA from Detroit, MI in 2009, I needed a creative outlet and started volunteering at a local Clay Studio where I created many hand built ceramic vessels and fun sculptures. From there, I stumbled into sewing and started a handbag line under the name Mackerilla Design. After many years of sewing my bag designs, (which I currently still sell sewing patterns of my designs on ETSY and through a few online retailers) I wanted to get back to being an artist and started painting in 2014. Since I am passionate about animals and volunteer for rescues, painting dogs and cats in acrylic paint on canvas would be my subjects of choice! But I do love to paint all other living creatures as well as a few humans here and there! My approach is to capture the animal’s essence through the look in their eyes. To show their vulnerability and love for their humans. I truly love painting and have so many ideas continuously swirling in my head! I feel I am still learning and growing. I am looking forward to my future to see my progression as being an artist. -Janice Serilla
