decorated box by Rani

decorated box by RaniThis is one of the boxes I’m working on. I’ve been attracted to the eye in art and am noticing a lot of other art using the eye motif. As a teenager, I used to draw eyes all the time. It seems to be a symbol of  vision, knowing, and truth.

There are so many great images that use the eye. I started a collection of eyes I’m finding online on a Pinterest board.

San Francisco Zine Fest September 1-2, 2012

Embellished match boxes

This weekend I’ll be exhibiting and selling my new work at the San Francisco Zine Fest at the County Fair Building in Golden Gate Park. Besides some of my familiar zine titles, stationery and sketchbooks, my new work goes beyond the printed ‘zine. I’ve been creating small dioramas I call “dream boxes” inspired by dreams and symbolic imagery that connects body to soul. Hope to see you at the show.

This fall I’ll be exhibiting my new show. Stay tuned for details.
