Phoenix Rising - SOLD
Studio Cygne was a natural evolution born from MaidenShade.com, which featured my lamp shades, night lights, classes, etc.
As my body of work grew and I began showing and competing at art galleries as well as selling at fairs, it was logical to separate things into distinct entities.
At Studio Cygne (my maiden name is "Swan") I offer my artwork, art shades, and faerie tales. These works are created using new, often hand-aged fabrics, antique fabrics; natural, found, repurposed, reclaimed, and recycled items; altered images, inks, acrylic, watercolor, stamps, chalks - and I even use things like coffee for dying fabrics.
My story writing is inspired by folklore and my own imagination. Life provides the substance for my prose, poetry and songs.
Now I am branching out into furniture. Offered locally, old and new pieces become unique expressions of my artistic style.
Contact me for commissioned work and unique gift ideas.

In spite of a disabling case of Sjogren's Syndrome in conjunction with other maladies, I work as I am able and do take commissions. Art is my therapy, and is what keeps me from shutting down completely.
Thank God for David who keeps things up (like my sites... and spirits!) If you order something, he will ship it off.
Please support your local (and handicapped) artists. JSH
