You may recognize Kelly Tunstall's artwork from her mermaid murals at Bar Crudo. Or maybe you've come across her work at a local gallery. I first saw her artwork years ago, at 111 Minna, and was instantly charmed. Her whimsical figures and enchanting use of color make her artwork distinct and easily lovable.
I later met Kelly at a party in the Mission, and went gaga over her green Dries Van Noten pumps. It's no surprise that the creator of such lovely pieces of art would have an incredible sense of style, too.
Last Saturday, I caught up with local artist, Charmaine Olivia, at the opening of her first SF solo show, Ritual, (on display through February 4) at The Shooting Gallery. The artist donned a gorgeous, black, floor-length dress with cut-out details, Jeffrey Campbell pumps and her signature mix of eclectic jewelry (some of which is currently on display as part of her show).
Ever wonder what's inside that ernestly scribbled upon notebook of your local coffee shop's resident artist? No doubt he's tried to show you numerous times, and it probably didn't quite live up to all those hours of work (and angst) that you've seen him put in. Instead, cruise over to Moleskine to check out the winners of their recent MyDetour contest.
