The opening reception for the Wylde Women Art Show was sooooo fun!  Fabulous artwork, amazingly talented belly dancers and a full house!  If you missed the opening, stop by Square One Studio in downtown Bryan, Texas this Thurs/Fri/Sat April 10th-12th between noon and 7pm to see the beautiful artwork celebrating the female form.  It's a great show!

Can anyone help me with some #sword identification?  I believe the top one is a kantana / samurai sword.  I have no idea what the bottom sword is...  Do you know??

The 1st annual Wylde Women Art Show in downtown Bryan, Texas is going to be wild!  In addition to fabulous artwork celebrating the female figure, there will also be belly dancers performing at the opening reception on April 3rd 6:30/8:30pm.  I'll be unveiling new artwork never-before seen at the show, as well as a personal favorite. 

If you're in the Bryan, TX or College Station area, please join us April 3rd and 4th at Square 1 Art Studio to meet the artists.  (I love connecting with art lovers in person - stop by and say hello!)  The show runs through the 12th, and directions, times and a list of artists can be found here:

Found safe!!!  A great reason to give your kids cell phones - it helped law enforcement locate the city where her abductor took her.

Introduction
I am an artist, a mother, and an entrepreneur. I am following my passions and creating art that I love for the sheer joy of it! I hope it resonates with you as well.

If you would like to see more of my work, including my fine artwork, Music Lover's series, Art of Invention series, one-of-a-kind artist books, wee planets, tutorials and more, please visit my blog at: http://BookSmithStudio.com

I'm also on Twitter https://twitter.com/#!/nikkismithART and FaceBook and my artwork has appeared in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, PAGES magazine, Somerset Digital Studio magazine, Flair! magazine, and the Houston Chronicle.

My Music Lover's series seeks to convey the transformative power of music through artwork.  My Art of Invention series celebrates the adventurous, inventive spirit of our ancestors, bringing vintage patent drawings to life as modern decor.  I'm always exploring new techniques and discovering new ways to create beautiful, evocative artwork.

Escape. Dream. Believe.
