Sirena...Part Deux

This image was created last year for a special letterpress edition which was a popular hit. Always looking for ways to make my work tactile and organic, I re-worked this image to include in this year's "Driftwood" Exhibit. Check out the finished piece below!

Dual Show with Christie Shinn @ Greenroom Hawaii

I just laid down the finishing touches on five new pieces for my upcoming show at Greenroom Hawaii. This new series, inspired by the ocean and beach living, is a special one for me as it is the first time I'm featuring prints on wood.

As with last year's Internacional Show, I will only be releasing a one-of-a-kind print of each image. Each print is created on sustainable wood with a unique organic grain. All pieces are UV cured and embellished for some interesting 3D effects. What can I say, I love tactile art!

In addition, I'm excited to be showing alongside one of my personal favorites Christie Shinn. I consider Shinn to be among the most graphically talented and bold painters on the island and one of the first artists to encourage me when I arrived on Oahu in '09. We are so stoked for this dual exhibit.

Finally, this will be my last show before the new baby arrives. Yes, you heard right...Madame Kat is having a wee lil' one! I'll be ready to pop but super excited to be among friends and of course, the fans whom I love so much.

A special thanks to my friends at Greenroom Hawaii for their constant support and loyalty.

Hope to see you all there Saturday, Nov. 23rd from 6-9pm!!

Loco Boutique Exclusive!

This Fall/Winter season I'm featuring a limited release with Loco Boutique. This specialty store, carrying contemporary swimmwear, features sexy pieces, printed right here in Hawaii. I created this image "Joyride" as a custom design for Hawaii-based Surfer Girl Academy back in 2011. Ever since, it's become part of the official Surfer Girl Academy uniform--which I find totally awesome!

After many requests from fans, I decided to partner up with Loco Boutique for a limited release of exclusive swimmwear featuring "Joyride", now available at your local Loco Boutique stores for purchase.

The styles range from sexy bikinis to beach bags and even rompers! Whatever your style, they gotcha covered.

If you're lucky, you can still snag an item with the official "Kat Reeder for Loco Boutique" tag, which includes a special discount code for purchases through my online store...just in time for the holidays!
