SwingSwagShop.com is a shop where I display and sell my dance inspired designs on clothes. I have fun with the shop… and it keeps my graphic design and marketing skills from getting too rusty as I freelance through this #artlife.

 

Intuition is my superpower

Intuition Is My Superpower t-shirt available at luckystardreams.com

Happy astrological new year! It’s the first day of spring. Too bad the weather here in New Jersey didn’t get the memo.

I made a new shirt, “Intuition is my Superpower.” It’s in my Lucky Star Dreams Etsy shop and it’s not just a shirt, its the beginning of my campaign to bring awareness and social validity to intuition. I feel like we miss a lot of life’s little subtleties in the noise of our culture. We tend not to slow down and listen to that energy… and when we do hear it, it blends with the media and entertainment we’re completely immersed in. The whispers are so easily drowned out by noise and the pace in which we move.  Continue reading “Intuition is my superpower”

Oil Paint Jewelry

Drop Earrings by Jodee Clifford

Oil Paint Palette Jewelry

Scraping dried paint from my palette , I noticed how beautiful the colors were. As someone who makes constellation jewelry to pass time while art ideas develop, it occurred to me to make one of a kind pieces of abstract jewelry from my repurposed palette paint.

These miniature mixed media abstract paintings sort of resemble pressed flowers. What do you think?  Do you know someone who’d dig them? http://bit.ly/paintjewelry

After some experimenting [and photography, math problems, planning, investing, writing, marketing, and research too], I have a few finished pieces listed in my @artseejodee Etsy shop. Acknowledging these pieces of jewelry aren’t fine art, I still keep them in the same gallery shop as my paintings because they’re made of my paintings.

I’m exploring relationships through human form, body language, and connection.
Connection is my most recent body of work painting dancers. Started in 2016, it’s a series of oil paintings, watercolor paintings, drawings, and ink drawings exploring human connection with body language, touch, and gesture; communicating and connecting without words through improvisational lead and follow social dancers. As a dancer and former media employee, this body of work is a reflection of communication in contrast to verbal or written language with undertones of honesty, transparency, and authenticity.
