I’m taking the week off here at EE to finish a few projects (one home project, plus we’re finally back on track with our big Foliotwist update—I can’t wait to share that with everyone as soon as it’s finished!)

Meanwhile, in this month’s New Artist Showcase. . .

Please give a warm welcome to Kelly Shoemaker!

Kelly joined Foliotwist last month with a unique blend of surrealism and figurative work. Her stylized paintings of the human body (and parts of the body, at times) act as visual metaphors for universally relatable experiences and emotions.

They’re definitely worth a look, and I guarantee they’ll get you thinking! Visit her website anytime at kellyshoemakerart.com, and feel free to leave her a message or comment—I know she’d appreciate it!
