Hello Friends. It has been a long time since I posted on here and that comes with a very good excuse. I have been working on a new blog which I will be operating under my own name. I realized that I'm kind of scattered and that has held me back from the consistency that I crave so much. Like I said in my last post on here I have been simplifying my creative life (and personal life as well...). It was time to cut out the unnecessary.
You'll find all my work under one "roof" if you will, over at Kinga Subject Blog and there's a new website in the works as well. I am still ironing out glitches and making changes as I go, but the dust should settle in the next few weeks.
I'm so grateful to those of you who have been there through the past few years, reading along and leaving your kind comments of encouragement. It meant the world to me and I hope you know that. I also hope that you will continue to keep in touch and follow along as I embark on a fresh start and a new adventure.

In my last post I mentioned that I will be working on a new format for blogging and that small planned overhaul has turned into a bigger plan to change almost everything about how I have my work organized on the net and in life in general. I'm calling it a creative spring cleaning, and it is very much overdue.
In fact I'm feeling the need to spring clean our little loft too. We don't do clutter but I'm starting to feel like we are holding on to things we don't need so things are feeling a bit cluttered. Does that make sense? Do you ever have that overwhelming feeling to clear out objects, clothes etc. that no longer serve a purpose? I kind of feel like I need to call a professional organizer though...this task is a bit daunting.
Anyway, I feel great about these new changes and hope to unveil them soon.
In the mean time I hope you're enjoying spring as much as I am.

Hello lovely people. I am thrilled to announce that my Etsy shop(s) are finally open. Yes, I set out to launch one Etsy shop and ended up launching two.
shopSUITE404 - is where I have all of my "Suite 404" prints, stationery and letterpress stuff posted.
KingaSubjectArt - is where I have listed my original paintings.
I wanted to keep these two things separate because I kind of have two slightly different aesthetics going on in each and I didn't want Suite 404 to become that crazy kind of anything goes shop. I don't want to confuse people or overwhelm them.
It has been time consuming to list things so I have a ways to go yet in terms of filling these spaces but I'll get there eventually. In the mean time, you're welcome to check it out...just know that not all things are listed and in their place yet. I welcome any constructive feedback too...
Also, next week I hope to resume a more normal posting schedule here on the blog, with a slightly different approach...I'm so ready to return to a more normal routine in my life. Things have been crazy!
As always, thank you for stopping by. Wishing you a fabulous weekend.

Hello friends. I hope that you have all been doing well. I wanted to share with you some of the things that I have been working on in the past little while, including these acrylic paintings on wood panels. I have a small collection of these ready to list...which I will be doing on Saturday, April 20th.
Yes, that's right. After taking what seems like forever to get myself ready, and after missing one planned launch date already, I'm finally going to list my work in an Etsy shop. I will have links and info next week and after the launch, once I get a grip on things, I will share a lookbook that I have been working on as well. It's interesting to see how all of the work I've done over the past two years is looking as a collection and I hope there is enough cohesion. This is something I always worry about because I'm not just interested in creating one type of art; I paint and I dabble with print-making and letterpress. My interests are varied, but the variety is what makes me tick creatively so I hope I've managed to make it all fit together. Time will tell I guess...
So April 20th it is...
