Description This is a photoshop recreation of an original cut layered paper piece that I have named Jungle Parade. Reminiscent of MC Escher, the piece has a stylized giraffe image transforming into a elephant. The colors are varying shades of gray/green and yellow/orange/brown which gives the image depth and draws the viewer in from afar. I hope you enjoy it - it is one of my favorites.
Deb Tuchsen, San Antonio Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement HI! My name is Deb Tuchsen and welcome to my Imagekind shop. I'm a 44 year old single mother of 3 wonderful kids. My home is in San Antonio, which inspires a lot of the Southwestern themes in my art.
What I do? My passions are drawing, photography, and polymer clay. I especially love portraiture - taking people's family photos and making wonderful drawings or paintings for a family heirloom.
My polymer clay work can be found at http://rengalsa.etsy.com and mainly involves customizing millefiori canes for beads for school & college jewelry and custom face canes. The school and college jewelry has my own design of a school or college logo in the school colors and many of the designs are used for fundraising purposes. The face canes are intricate, detailed canes with varying skin tone and hair color - some even with mustaches! They are wonderful to make a custom gift for mothers, grandmothers, or teachers or even to add your 'child' on to your school jewelry. If you're interested in any custom jewelry, please visit this shop or feel free to contact me.

I have a secondary etsy site at http://rengaldesigns.etsy.com where you can commission custom drawings, painting, or graphic designs. I also can put any design I make for you onto polymer clay beads for extra special gifts and memories. Many of my art pieces featured on my design store can also be purchased as prints here. If you are interested in commissioning a drawing or having a graphic transformation done specific to your likes and color choices, please visit this shop or email me.
