I first started following Allie about a year ago. I was drawn to her leather necklaces that conveyed for me a spirit both exotic and natural. I finally ordered one a few months ago, and everything from the personalized packaging to the unique design of the necklace made it special for me.
You can see more of Allie's designs at the PoseManikin Etsy store, on her PoseManikin website, or on her Facebook page.
As I've followed Allie on Facebook and Twitter over the course of the year, I've seen her post amazing photographs and recipes. She has designed cd covers and shot portraits for the indy musicians Lee Hester, Damon Jones, Set on 7, and Jennings Music. Her portraits and self-portraits each convey to me the haunting, timeless quality of two of Allie's musical influences: Depeche Mode and David Bowie.
Allie is also culinary artist with a new cookbook just released this week! The cookbook features such fabulous recipes as black tea chocolate almond cranberry scones! Because it honors her mom's memory, Allie is giving away the downloadable cookbook for free--just click on the photo of the cookbook to the right =>
Allie and her husband Josh, a digital painter, eat, drink, and breath art. I am so glad to support an independent artist of Allie's talents!
