About the Painting Process
The paint is applied directly to my breasts, which are then pressed onto the canvas. This process is repeated many times, using different color combinations and transfer techniques, until I'm pleased with the final composition. An interesting palette and well-balanced composition are essential to me. My strength is in color mixology, which is a huge asset for this method of painting. Many of my colors are custom blended for use in only a handful of paintings - this keeps this collection fresh and expansive. This painting was 100% painted by my (real) breasts.
The artwork in this series is intended to be intimate, whimsical, elegant, unique, and fun. I take great pride in my work and I hope you'll view it in an artistic light, despite my unorthodox painting methods.
*Please don't ask for photos from the painting process. I am a collectible, professional artist with real knowledge of color & composition. I've been selling my breast paintings on eBay since 2001. My feedback and artwork speak for themselves. If you require photo documentation of the process or are only interested in the novelty aspect of breast paintings, then please buy your "art" from one of my copycat "competitors." I suggest you read my feedback if you have any questions about the quality or originality of my work.
Photo may not be to scale and colors may appear slightly different on your monitor.
This original painting consists of an array of colors (including metallics) that would go well in almost any setting. Here are some close-up views of this artwork: Please note that these photos were taken prior to varnishing to reduce glare.
About the Artist
I'm a full-time, self-taught, professional artist, best known for my colorful breast paintings and my collaborative efforts with Koopa the turtle, now retired from painting. My art is generally abstract, although I have skill (but little patience) with landscapes, still lifes, figural drawing, and some types of sculpture. I enjoy working with different mediums and finding new ways to get paint onto a canvas. I created my first breast painting in January 2001. I also paint with brushes, palette knives, other body parts, toys (wind-up, RC, etc.,) and fruits & vegetables. My intention is to provoke emotion through my art, make living spaces more beautiful, spark conversation, and most importantly - make people smile! My works can be seen in homes and businesses throughout the world. My auction starting bids are all inspired by baseball players (Ichiro's 51 being the most common.) Artistic creation is my passion. I've also begun to offer handmade beaded jewelry and original photo prints - I love shooting photography, then digitally manipulating it afterwards.

Some of my paintings are difficult to photograph due to the reflective properties of the paint. In general, you can expect my artwork to look bolder and brighter in person. The colors in this piece most clearly resemble those in this unretouched, angled view:
