Some enterprising Californians have already been buying & reselling my WonderGround prints & merchandise from Disneyland on eBay too - I have gathered them together in an online eBay collection of links here - all different sellers, prices, etc. but all together in one link here

This image will also be available soon in Florida at the Disney Marketplace Co-Op on the Marketplace side of Downtown Disney / Disney Springs here at the Walt Disney World Resort as well, so if you live in Florida you should have options to purchase in person soon too.  I will be there in person at the Co-Op the evenings of November 7 & 8 from 5pm-7pm.

One of the pieces I painted for Disney that debuted at the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, CA. Licensed & contracted by Disney, ©Disney, this is my original acrylic painting featuring Disney’s Evil Queen from the animated film “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of my favorite Disney classics. When I was a kid, I remember my grandmother telling me that she saw it in the theatres when she was a little girl, which totally blew my mind! The Evil Queen is such an archetypal character; she helped define my notion of a true "villain." She is beautiful, vindictive, fabulous, but incredibly powerful - juxtaposing petty jealousy with supernatural thrill. One of the most unforgettable scenes has to be her consultation of the mystical servant in the Magic Mirror (who I find creepy even to this day). I have painted my interpretation of the Evil Queen in my usual stylized characterization, an acrylic painting capturing the mood & mystery of her conversation with the Magic Mirror.

Prints, merchandise and limited edition canvases are available exclusively through Disney.  More details are here.

One of the pieces I painted for Disney that debuted at the WonderGround Gallery in the Downtown Disney® District at the Disneyland® Resort in Anaheim, CA. Licensed & contracted by Disney, ©Disney, this is my original acrylic painting featuring Disney’s "Tightrope Girl". This piece is inspired by one of the most iconic scenes in one of my all-time favorite Disney attractions - The Haunted Mansion! The infamous room that houses the stretching portraits left a huge impression on me as a child - a true piece of Walt Disney Imagineering magic. The delightful creepiness of the character known as the "Tightrope Girl" speaks to me in particular, and as a Florida girl, I identify with the alligator-based narrative. In my interpretation I have painted her as a tall, narrow acrylic painting to keep the general aesthetic of the portrait in full "stretch." Keeping with the Southern Gothic feel of The Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square at the Disneyland® Resort, I have expanded the atmospheric background into an immersive Louisiana swamp, and of course the character herself has been given my personal treatment with the larger head / big eyes painted in the pop surrealist/Jasmine Becket-Griffith style.

Prints, merchandise and limited edition canvases are available exclusively through Disney.  More details are here.
