A find I wanted to share with you is Etsy :: stilettoheights :: the shop of the talented Jennifer Gordon.

Jennifer Gordon is a writer and mixed media artist from Manchester NH.She graduated from the acting program at the New Hampshire Institute of Art, it was there that she got the chance to work as an artist model as well as work with the innovative professional theater- New Art Theatre. During those years at the Institute, she fell in love with art in all of its forms.

After five years of regional professional theater she decided to express herself in other mediums, finally stumbling on the combination of writing and art.

She went back to school to study English and Art History at the University of New Hampshire while working as an assistant gallery director at the Art 3 Gallery in New Hampshire.

After several years she decided to move to Columbus Ohio, to be close to the love of her life, she states that "$700 cell phone bills just seemed like a waste".

Her Indie comic book "Stiletto Heights" has received critical acclaim for it's realistic portrayal of life and love through a woman's eyes. The book contains realistic dialogue, and beautiful art combined with prose and poetry.

Her love for antique letters led her to an exploration of the hidden stories of letters of the past.

Her work has been shown in several galleries in the New England area, such as the Carney Gallery and Art 3 as well as being sold throughout the Midwest at trade shows in conjunction with her comics.

Her art has also been seen on the cover of the indi book "Johnnie Zombie" as well as the literary journal "The Poet's Touchstone".

I wear a winged heart tatoo on my right shoulder, just beneath my yin-yang flambe tatoo. That image on your page is simply breath-taking! Amazing how many incredible artists there are in the hedgerows among us.

Her work reminds me of Nick Bantock...maybe a little more modern.
It's very good!

Nick's work is gorgeous however, (as with his North African series,)the pedophile element in it, turns me off completely.
