I love this- the composition is perfect and works so well. There is a beautiful delicacy in the features of the face and the flowers. Also, I do have a soft spot for Asian inspired artwork :)

This is beautiful! I absolutely love it!
I'm definitely checking out your Facebook and Tumblr pages as well. I can't wait to see more work from you!

May I ask, where did you get the inspiration/idea for this piece from? It's stunning! I'd love to hear more about it or your process with it...

Thank you so much for your comment and for taking the time to follow me! :) 

For this particular piece, I was entirely inspired by the theme of the "Curiosities" show at Modern Eden Gallery. The gallery asked for something strange which would fit into a contemporary version of a Cabinet of Curiosities. After brainstorming for practically an entire day, I ended up turning to my interest in the Eastern world - particularly Japan. I decided to depict a captured spirit in a bell jar, surrounded by haniwa figures (which I studied in one of my art history courses). I've always found Eastern cultures very interesting, and I studied the Japanese language during high school. So in a way, I guess you could say I turned to my roots for this one!

Thank you for answering my questions. :)
Very cool inspiration. The result is great!
I loved the Asian influence. It was well intertwined.
And congrats at having it displayed at the gallery!
