Our featured Etsy treasury for today is curated by Stef Bauer, from the Etsy shop oneeyedgirls, in Los Angeles, CA.
Through oneeyedgirls, Stef Bauer shares with us her original abstract paintings and drawings, and prints from originals. Stef has also begun to do mixed media pieces with watercolor and ink. The artwork in oneeyedgirls is, at once, modern, decorative, emotive and colorful.
"I love to create paintings and drawings, a bit like a visual journal. I am fascinated by colors and patterns coming up with new ones in my spare time; and most inspired by the viewers emotional response to these ... I am driven by the small silent moments where one reveals oneself.
My pieces come from the multi-cultural experience LA provides, and the waves that arise of varied emotions from living in this city."
When you visit oneeyedgirls, you will also come across some of the eponymous "characters" that Stef has created. A few of the One Eyed Girls® you might chance upon are Lina Listening to the Trees, Sia Strolling in the Almost Fall, or Lilly Walking with The Sun.
"The idea for the One Eyed Girls came one day in June, 2008, when I wished to express emotions from the intuitive or third eye; and began simply and gradually expressing all different emotions in all different types of the feminine; balancing them with only one eye became a challenging game and before long, one became many. Music is my muse, and my images, and mood created, often springs from the songs I'm listening to."
