'emma' ~ colored pencil, oil pastels, gouache, watercolors & beeswax on teabag


i think of the faces that come through on the teabags as the 'mystery girls'. no matter what i have in mind when i start out, they always seem to end up with an air of mystery about them...

the surface of 'emma' is beeswax without any kind of fixative. the paint is well protected under the wax, and all you need to do to keep a soft sheen on her surface is gently buff it with a soft cloth once in a while.

her name and my signature are on the back of the tab... i hang these by the tab (at the end of the string), but of course you don't have to.

the teabag itself measures 1 1/2" x 5 1/2"

$25, postage paid, anywhere in the world



  1. Emma is adorable, I am sure that her new owner will love her.

  2. oh my... she is a love... and so are you...
    our love is reflected in our art, isn't it...?
    btw, how did you do the "previous occupants" ...? is is a widget?

  3. She is really a beauty. Thanks for giving her life.

  4. Oh! Emma is so sweet and wonderful! :-)
