Her works are exhibited internationally and have been reviewed across North America and in major art journals. She has been a major stable of the Olga Korper Gallery since her first show in 1998, when her striking architectural structures and weaves narrated a history of the psychological impact on people of colour from slavery to the present day. Travel has always been a major element in her life and work, steering her interest in colour, line, and space towards the homes and harbours she discovered on her adventures to Africa, China, India, and South America.  photo thomasos2006_01_zpsd7f61b4c.jpg  photo img_9989_zpsed9179d3.jpg

Simply push in the puppy's tail on our Cone of Shame LED Keychain and his eyes illuminate. The term “pet lampshade” suddenly becomes quite appropriate. Let this fellow brighten your darkest moments and it’ll provide you with the unconditional illumination that only a key chain flashlight, shaped like a dog, wearing a cone of shame… can. Great for finding the house key late at night!"  photo KEYS-0205-2_zps676105fb.jpg

Maxwell Doig

 photo swim4_zps1ebacdca.jpg  photo swim2_zps8216ec2b.jpg Maxwell Doig was born in Huddersfield. He graduated from Manchester School of Art in 1988 with a BA in Fine Art and went on to pursue his postgraduate studies in Fine Art at the Slade School of Art, London, between 1988 and 1990. Doig is preoccupied with the human figure and its spatial relationship combined with the interplay of light and shade. His use of unconventional viewpoints depicting static solitary figures along with the application of subtle pigments and textural complexity results in contemplative ephemeral imagery. In 1997 he was awarded the Villiers David Prize. He lives and works in Manchester. (via Albemarle Gallery)  photo swim3_zps8f97605e.jpg
