Souvenir. A little keepsake that we pick up on vacation. But also, in french, a verb that means "to remember."
Why does the play between those two meanings evoke such a feeling of tenderness in me? Is it because we buy these little things to try to hold onto moments that we know are fleeting and will never come again?
For Your Valentine
STAFFORDSHIRE DOGS FOR THE TENDER-HEARTED
Putti Staffordshire Soul Mates. Cupid as a pair of dogs.
These are baroque, kitsch, delovely valentines for the tender hearted. Influenced by Andy Warhol and Victorian era hand colored prints.

Meet the Artist
California-based artist Anne-Louise Ewen paints vivacious gestural works that emphasize brush work, color and above all, freedom. Ewen’s work includes paintings, mixed-media hand-painted multiples, drawings, sculpture, ceramics, and books.
In 2020 she moved house and studio from Los Angeles to Joshua Tree, a scrappy artistic community in the Mojave Desert.
