Pounce Feature of the Week: Jessica Simanowski

Jessica Simanowski just very recently opened up a shop on Etsy, selling original mixed media paintings.
"I dreamwalked them all"

Her paintings are very colourful and whimsical, and she includes a little "story" for each one. For example, for the painting "When the rabbit comes out of its hole":

"One day the rabbit came out of it`s hole after it had gained enough courage, sensitive as it was, stumbling through sadness, feeling so uncomfortable in this cruel and harsh world. And as it made the first step out of it`s hole, magic appeared. Everything that had been grey and dead before turned into such sweetness of love and comfort, blossoming in such innocence and now the rabbit understood that reality reacts to perception."

This lovely artist also has a sister store on Etsy, where she sells felted products and plush monsters.
