The Year of the Dragon 2012

A great baby shower gift for babies born in

2012.  One can be purchased either

framed and unframed at Ten Women. 
 Yes, this is the Year of the Dragon and who better illustrates this then
Anthea Brown is our featured artist at Ten Women Gallery.  She is originally from London, England and moved Venice, CA in the late 1970's.  She enjoys working in mixed media and draws inspiration from the ocean, light and colors of Southern California.  
Anthea is interested in Jungian psychology and the exploration of the unconscious usage of dream imagery and folk tales in her art.  She combines iconic images with plants, birds and animals that she has seen in her travels and makes block prints on linen.  The blocks are all hand carved and pulled on her antique French printing press.  She currently combines block prints with hand embroidery on pictures, cards, pillows and a variety of craft items.

This is Anthea's display at Ten Women where she is one of our top sellers.  Her work is sort after by many collectors throughout the world and can also be purchased in her Etsy Shop.
