♥ Art Vandal Photography ♥

Photography inspired by the imaginings of a grown-up girl...

When I was a little girl, I lived to read. After my parents put me to bed I would grab my flashlight and hide under the covers and read until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. I had a vivid imagination and I would play by myself for hours on end with my dolls and horses and later on, my camera. Then, it was an old Polaroid Land Camera and stacks of instant film my mom would buy for me... Now I just use more sophisticated gear but I still try to capture images that have a vintage feel and remind me of home.

Cigar box purses I started today! This is my tattoo image and the paper flowers. The handle is some old oxidized metal strapping from some Minute Maid OJ crates from the old bottling plant here in Florida. I just love this little bag! #myart #mylife #cigarboxpurses #handpaintedpurses #artvandaldesigns #katfluharty

Ok, so anyone who knows me knows I’m intrigued and fascinated by mechanical things. Old gears, rusty metal parts, old tools, sorta steampunk-ish gadgets, DaVinci-esque/ Jules Verne type flying machines and such. My little sweet Hannah bought this puzzle a couple years ago at the OakHill Fleamarket from one of our fave educational toy vendors and put it together for me. We sealed it and I put it away. Fast forward to cleaning out my studio yesterday to make room for all the matt boards and six foot cutter I just got from my friend closing her frame shop and I found it. The frame is one Jer and I found at Reninger’s antique market two weeks ago and I used my new cutter. This is officially my newest most favorite piece of art in my bedroom!!💗💗💗#myart #mychild #myloves #myfamily #artvandaldesigns #katfluharty
