My niece, Sarah, is an up and coming artist. I was delighted to purchase this piece from a show in Cape Girardeau, MO, where Sarah donated her work for a charitable event. I am delighted with her works, which remind me of a cross between Aubrey Beardsley and E. Gorey. This woman has mystery, intrigue, and delicacy. Sarah always hides a key somewhere in her works, and lovely patterns in an almost old-fashioned way. Keep an eye out...her work is so unique it grows on you!
