Ribbon Art

It must be the girlie in me that loves ribbons–but even so, I am trying to strip the ribbon of its girliness to a modern yet still playful form.  I’ve been putting them in my last few paintings:

www.tphblog.comIt wasn’t until recently that I had time to make more.  Did you see these on Instagram?


www.tphblog.comThere are more to come and a shop in which to purchase them and other new art–hopefully soon!

I’ve been having fun with the scrap wood by making kissy lips.  This one makes me think of Tom Wesselmann.

www.tphblog.comI made two pairs of the red lips below.  Anyone want a pair for your gallery wall?  If you do, go to my Instagram and find this photo below, leave a comment telling me where your first kiss was, and I will pick someone from the comments on Friday.  I’ll go first:  movie theater.  Gah, so romantic!



  1. I still think it would be completely reasonable for you to have a piece of ribbon art on every wall in your home, just sayin’.
