Thinking about Marilyn...

As many of you know, my Marilyn Monroe obsession started when I was a little girl, there was something about her that I just adored, funny, sexy, sweet and very very sad...
My aunt who passed away when I was 10 years old looked just like her, even acted a bit like her when she was
Maybe that's it?
Maybe it's becasue even as a little girl I was intoxicated with beauty, clothes, movies...not much has really changed. It's those things I hold onto and explore in my artwork, in my comic that I write. I'm a girly girl, I always have been.
So why today, why the mrilyn talk seemed fitting, as today is the anniversary of her death.
The ACEO (art card) is one I did several weeks ago, it depicts Marilyn and her husband at the time Arthur Miller Dancing...I thought it seemed so natural, so beautiful and just so moving.
I used the green colors because it was the color of envy and jealousy, which was one of the many factors in the downfall of their marriage- so sad.
Maybe I'll write more later- but for's Marilyn.

The card is for sale along with a host of other things at my etsy shop
