The Body as a Brush Project

Hello and good evening!

In my efforts to find continual inspiration within myself and new ways to express that inspiration, I have begun a new project that I call ‘the Body as a Brush’ project. 

What if…in some futuristic world of an apocalyptic nature…there are no brushes? Not much canvas anywhere? Barely any paint to be found? Underground artists hiding in the shadows of the postrumpalypse…using charred remains of the burned buildings for the medium or remnants of melted wax. Using make shift paint on old windows or scraps of found wood. Because that’s the only thing that’s left…
Process: Starting small and simple, from the bottom up with acrylics and canvas paper, I created my first series of 4 ocean themed pieces.

Squid in the Reef 

Anemones on the coral

Underwater Sunset

For these pieces, I washed my feet and slathered them with paint to create the reef and coral for the watery scenes. Spring and St. Patrick’s Day had me feeling the green.

This was a fun project to dust off the rust and be creative! 


Hi hi hi there!

Thanks for visiting! 

I’ve always enjoyed writing and using words for an outlet. Having started at what I now realize was actually early, in the 7th grade with the wonderfully amazing Ms. Penny Pence, I’ve experienced too vast of a break. 

Recently I vacated Pittsburgh and returned to North Carolina, this time to the coast. I fell in love with the sandy beaches, historic town and super cute at home vibe. Never shaking the feeling that I belonged here, destiny intervened and allowed me to return.

I decided to name this blog after my ‘TheCuriousSpider’ shop on Etsy and Instagram since they are also the artistic extension of myself, as this will be. It seemed logical to link it up namewise.

Welcome and feel free to participate!
