This week has sounded thrilling, perhaps excessively so, as I've managed to catch the kind of cold that comes from inattentive susceptibility - brazenly under-dressing or some other flagrant willingness to play viral host. The abandon is well worth it. Being only in favor of voluptuous disarray, however, + decidedly not of clutter, I've compiled a catalog of vévé paintings to date. Hi-res photos + complete information in a neat discrete alternative to scrolling through web pages. Please download at !

An overgrown pure black cat stood determinedly in my path yesterday in the middle of a familiar neighborhood grown over with the uncanny moss of damp light that comes between intermittent rain showers.

Or, that unique composure of being drawn out of sleep by crystalline awareness of a faucet in the darkened bathroom opening and closing with a metal hiss. Nothing there + the room’s not empty.

There’s an edge of hysteria to all the vividly dying foliage that creeps up against the steady barriers of peripheral vision - you could just sink into the ground all soupy proteins at any second, sliding neatly into earthy pores.

It’s been a magical season so far. A dose of ritual immersion on the equinox can’t have hurt, + a certain occasion exactly one month in can’t but sustain the mood …

Magical week split between prowling multilevel esoteric shops in the most marine recesses of New England + a fortuitous (I swear) full-frontal run-in with Folsom St Fair 2012 ... all of which but ornamentation splayed attractively around a Black Mamba centerpiece idol.

The result plus some more prosaic matters is, your generally faithful lady artist has been somewhat absent. No longer, of course - guilt owned + penance paid, I shall resume revelation of the work that has somehow gone on despite (because of?) successive days of rarefied titillation ... xx

Here, immoderate glee at the emergence of excessively early Hallowe'en paraphernalia + arcane fixation on consuming the darkest, most subterranean and occult of plants as a staple diet. In the space of a day: empathizing with a growling rubber werewolf that shivers + spits jets of suspect-looking warm water (an intentional function? the display box worryingly failed to elaborate) + going into paroxysms of delight at the discovery of black string beans to accompany purplish-dark kale in a thoroughly eldritch meal, like mutual biting + digestion, of + by the earth itself.

Thrilled by all the inquiries and messages I have been receiving of late, I welcome and indeed encourage yet more, especially from those who might wish to share a glimpse of their own, sympathetically-inclined artworks - ever eager for such communicative stimuli!  + more, more to come ... xx

"Construction in the Mind is fully soluble, lost in the wake of Tidal waves, in memory of the original return. Spirit is accessible, excited in this Shape-Shifting form, adapted to the array of marine internal logic."

Another painting that inspired art used in the Cut Hands Afro Noise I album! This startling figure, at once impassioned + transcendent, is here depicted in artist quality oils + select obscure additions on a 16''x16'' canvas, and is $950 (worldwide insured airmail shipping included). Please write to me at for more information, and remain piqued for further disclosures here ... xx

Small signs of the approaching dying-off of fall - the cheerful and life-affirming decay of which season can only be likened appropriately in my mind to the intoxicating + horrific stench of low-tide - keep straying into my path, my personal favorite thus far being a great ovoid mass, reaching a height midway to my knee, of bright orange mushrooms on someone's carefully manicured lawn: an orgiastic eruption or expansion obviously made lividly manifest overnight and already in the throes of fragrant self-digestion after what I can only assume was a brief and furious mass coupling.  My delight at such uncouth proliferation knows no bounds...

On which note, I persist in my own creeping occupation of space and matter, a very central feature of which process is enjoying correspondence and inquiries both from those interested in the paintings and garments displayed here (thank you for all your lovely messages!) as well as from those engaged in sympathetic forms of creation - I would love to hear from you + see your work!  This witch seeks a more populous coven ... xx

"Touch is jealous Intoxication wine. Lascivious confusion about here as a Cross between the body and the Second Place, for the body betrays its patient flow, its properties and its presence."

The arresting form filling this 16''x16'' canvas also featured in the artwork for the Cut Hands album Afro Noise I.  Here it is composed in artist quality oils + more obscure secret vaudou additions, and is currently priced at $950 (worldwide insured airmail shipping included) - feel free to write to me at for more information! Still more to come... xx

Persistent rain produces a very grumpy sweat factory owner/operator/employee with a terrible humidity-plagued mane of unruly red hair.  Somehow, regardless of this debilitatingly unbecoming situation, work continues to get done, and even get done animatedly, spurred on by small everyday Magical happenings: recently, the rediscovery of a genuine hagstone found on the beach when I was two years-old, hidden away knowingly for my future use in waxy yellow tissue + a small spiky wicker basket by my grandfather. A prized addition to the arsenal of charms.

Such witchery being an motivator rather than an effective distraction, there is vastly more to appear here in the near future! xx

"Body in motion is an inflammatory invitation, probing the Boundary at the crossroads of the Living and the Invisibles. Agency in the Journeyer falters, then the Ruthless reality of the dance. Courage, and eventually they go and disappear."

This painting, one of my recent favorites, is artist quality oils and carefully selected + obscurely sourced secret ingredients on 16''x16'' canvas (and psst, design is included in new the Cut Hands Black Mamba album artworks), and is $925 (worldwide insured airmail shipping included) - write to me at for more information! Working away at new curia to unveil soon ... xx

Diversion! Have been hard at work assembling the next edition of Cut Hands garments here in the trusty one-girl sweatshop/atelier (+ for the time being we've some of our limited edition shirts from the first run still available), getting utterly abruptly lost in obscure ethnobotanical inquiry, being immersed in hysterically exciting new sounds, irrevocably spooking the next male generation after agreeing to accompany my uncannily identical twin sister on a job babysitting an erstwhile set of young brothers ... and welcoming a delightfully bitchy little calico addition to the cat coven.

Despite such apparent disarray, an underlying method persists, the fruits of which shall become quickly apparent! Many thanks once more to all those writing with inquiries and requests, correspondence is always most exciting. Much to come and soon ... xx

"The body should not shrink from penetration: it is the ratio of hostilities contaminating it. Teeth bared in all-violent grimace, corrupted and abandoned, a department of exciting additions in excess."

This piece, inspired in part by an ongoing fascination, nay obsession, with Kongo zinkondi, is made from carefully chosen artist quality oil paint and specially sourced secret vodun ingredients on 16''x20'' canvas, and is $1,250 (worldwide insured airmail shipping included).  Please write to me at for more information!  You know there's more to come from me xx

"Conceptualization of death as animation's negative corollary makes bad worse. Life and death and all these things em-body the respective participants that are permanent in a mobile, biting cycle of directions. Necrophilic mathematics has no place."

This painting, one of my favorites, is the original inspiration for the cover of 
Cut Hands Afro Noise I Volume 2 LP, as well as for our limited edition shirts - it was made on 16''x16'' canvas with my precious artist quality oils + the usual array of unusual secret additions, and is $895 (worldwide insured airmail shipping included).  Please write to me at for more information!  Of course, there's more to come ... xx

A busy busy week, all the work of which on my part, while most exciting, pales terribly in comparison to the beautiful experience of having been ceremoniously gifted a very dead, exsanguinated mouse (dropped in the grass in gory prostration at my feet) by a master huntress neighbor cat. Poor little mouse, yet I can't fault the feline's gesture: her obvious and justified lack of regard for my lethal potential complemented charmingly by her effort, at once maternal and, perhaps more pointedly, gleefully dominant, to help me along in the matter. I do appreciate being so eloquently reminded of my place now and again...

Enjoying so much responding to inquiries and correspondence - still vastly more to come, very soon! xx

*******ONE SOLD*******

These 6 miniature (7cmx7cm) vévé paintings, inspired in a roundabout way by holy estampas, and like my large works, are artist quality oil paints + secret vodun-source additions on canvas + my beloved snake signature. You can also see me clutching a couple of them in YANEKA. They are $95 each and come in presentation boxes (worldwide insured airmail shipping included) - please write to me at for more information! Much more so so soon ... xx


I can't claim the highly alluring trait of ambidexterity, a fact which is normally bothersome only in the realm of hypothetical musings about 'dubious functions one might be able to perform manually given precisely equal use of the left and right hands,' but which enters the realm of practical complaints when, as now, favored hands and fingers bear sore traces of continual jabbing with sewing needles.  A necessary stigmata wrought by one-girl garment production and, all moaning aside, an interesting sensory elaboration to routine activity.  Even better: those with an interest in the material rather than exclusively fleshly results of said labor shall be satisfied tomorrow ... xx

"Who claimed the night, who is moving under cover, they are honoring the trees, wildlife, hunting even in the deep self. A deep sea: a consensus."

This painting, in artist grade oils + my secret vodun ingredients on 16''x16'' canvas, served as inspiration for artwork used on the Cut Hands Afro Noise Volume I LP, and is $895 (insured worldwide airmail shipping included) - write me at for more information! So much to come ... xx


Splitting time between lying on the bathroom tiles in a detached mollusk imitation, visualizing slimy limblessness, when the heat becomes too much, and the violent embodiment and celebration thereof that's come with breathlessly following Olympic women's boxing: the most viscerally moved I've been since experiencing my first underground live fight, convulsively making bruising grabs at my neighboring girl friend's knee - the absolute finest in Amazon entertainment!

And otherwise working away. The curious and desirous are encouraged to look for developments regarding paintings on both canvas and textile in the coming days ... very excited to share!  Soon, soon xx

"It sits at the Boundary. Large swamp filled with the forces of Life and Death, undifferentiated biophilic potential. Snakes are long out of the mud and the Biomancer waits. Life can be accessed. Or death."

This bigger (2' x 2') painting is the original inspiration for the Cut Hands Black Mamba album cover - it is artist quality oils + secret vodun ingredients on canvas, and is $2,450 (insured worldwide airmail shipping included). Write me at for more info!  xx

Continuing in the helpless cultivation of generalized cupidity: glimpses of Amazon savagery via depraved selection from snippets of Olympic events, and botanical forays both gratuitous (Pausinystalia yohimbe as a breakfast supplement?) and Magic - trying, exciting times in the annals of girl self-amusement!  Not that such distraction is needed when elbow-deep in several means of variably admissible production, the fruits of which shall be forthcoming, of course ...

Further excitement still from the wonderful messages and inquiries I am receiving.  So eager to share much more - soon! xx

"If you are still up, bow your head in Fear, dry mouth and Anticipation. Disbelievers witness the spread of the dream: afraid, Broken. Hands and feet to pull off with splayed movements of birds. Time and sight sick like the very minds are drunk. INITIAL is Flight before the Lunatic drum beat."

This painting is big: 5'x4', in artist grade oils + secret vodun ingredients on canvas, and is $5,250 (insured worldwide FedEx shipping included) - for more info!  The hand painted shirt sweatshop continues to operate, and despite being thus far without any additional waifish hirelings to help speed production they are coming along very nicely ... much to come, and soon! xx


In the same way that they grow heavy winter coats, the cats seem to assume attributes of wildness when the summer is thick and green and feral - they're stalking around with saucer eyes and tails grown several inches longer, claws unsheathed, and so am I ... days stuck into Mary Daly's supremely witchy Wickedary plus evenings immersed in an unlikely viewing assemblage of Agnetha Fältskog via Maya Deren and Barbara Hammer are hardly a cure for such terminal concupiscence I suppose ...

Absolutely thrilled with all the lovely emails and inquiries I've gotten in the past week!  So, so much more to come ... xx

"Darkness is good, a strong intention of direction. The clear goal: a taste of the heat Antropik, informed as to under a shell, with many legs. Never much of an objective self. All push deeper."

This vévé painting is of artist quality oils + some secret ingredients on 16''x16'' canvas, and is $895 (insured worldwide airmail shipping included) - for more info!  Working a one-girl sweatshop at the moment getting these hand painted Cut Hands shirts done - so much more upcoming ... xx
