all that glitters

Artwork by Jamie Vasta.

I should be posting donuts today, but I couldn't sit on this any longer. Recently I posed for fine artist Jamie Vasta in her Oakland studio for a series of portraits she is doing of burlesque and high femme performers. I was blown away when she shared a photo of the finished piece with me a few weeks ago. I have been immortalized in glitter, and I can't believe it. Isn't it INCREDIBLE? And she made me look so good, too! I can't wait to see it in person. ALL GLITTER, PEOPLE!

Jamie is creating dozens of pieces in this series. I have seen many of them and they are just stunning. All of her work is. I will keep you posted on the opening date this of her show this fall at Patricia Sweetow Gallery here in San Francisco. The pieces are first traveling to Houston in October for the Texas Contemporary Art Fair, so we'll see if "I" make it back to the San Francisco show or not!

A huge thank you to Jamie, and to Lisa Congdon, Jamie's friend and studio mate who put the two of us in touch! Such a thrill!

I've posted the uncensored version (it's still decent) after the jump, so check it out if you'd like. Have a great Monday! xoxo

  1. Beautiful portrait of a beautiful woman. I loved the sense of movement she captured.

    1. Thank you for the compliment. Jamie is amazing, I can't believe how great the tissue paper pom poms look. She's so good with light! :)
