People and animals are twisted by the imagination of Valerie Jeanne

Valerie Jeanne paints people and animals. Sounds simple enough, right? However, her people and animals have a bit of a twist - and a turn. And some weirdness...which I love. Check out this Big Eye Art.

Reunion - ok we have quite a few things going on here. Some aliens....and some flora and fauna (ok, maybe not fauna per se, but some bird-life anyway).

Overcome by Events - we've all felt this way before. As a matter of fact, this piece represents my day today perfectly.

Climbing - kind of a strange fellow... climbing towards something

Winged Monkey (for all you OZ fans out there). The Oz books were a huge influence on me. Not so much sweetness and light.

Bird Girl - the first piece Valerie did on a smashed piece of soda pop can. Who needs a regular canvas?

This is just the first in a series of several pieces that the artist has done on smashed soda pop cans.

Hard to tell, isn't it?

I love to see work with this kind of texture. It adds a different dimension to the piece.

And yeah... a bird-girl - why not?

Makes you want to see more, doesn't it?

Lil Green Ears - yes this one is called Lil' Green Eyes.

And yes it looks kinda cute, but you've got to admit, it's strange.

Not the usual cuteness here.

Yes, I know.

Nice big eyes... but that only adds to the strangeness.

The artist describes this as being a combination of radish, pear, and Chihuahua.

Creepy and cool.

And Creepy

The Cascade Effect - it's all about how everything effects everything. You think you can escape influences around you. This particular piece demonstrates in an unsettling way how silly that notion is.

The Legendary Flying Unicorn-Anubis-Dog of Egypt

A bit of everything.

A combination of several legends into one weird creature.

And the texture still feels kind of stone-like.

This one is called Out on a Limb. It's kind of a bird, and kind of not.

Fascinating stuff! I really like the "organic Tetris" of nr. 18. And 10 answers a question I've been pondering for years: What would happen if Dobby mated with a pear?
