Kitschy Carnival Inspired Art

A few weeks ago I filled an order for a visitor to the Agent 137 shop. I carefully wrapped the little leather carnival mouse and sent him off to Canada:

Little did I know that he was actually destined to arrive at the home of an amazing artist. Heather Millar is a professional painter living on Prince Edward Island in Canada. Her work has been featured in several publications as well as gallery shows. The creative paintings include kitschy toys poised in a sea of bright background. Although visually realistic her lens creates images that depict cheerful nostalgic childhood memories with a twinge of something darker. 

"Quite as a Mouse" 
Oil on canvas 36 X 36

In any case, her work is amazing and Agent 137 is honored to have her capture one of our toys in time. You can view more of her work on her blog at:  http://heathermillar.blogspot.com/
