Suspect Shoppe

I love Mati Rose McDonough’s shop because she does what I’ve been striving to do ever since I was 5, which is to be able to get back that freedom to draw and paint as I did as a child. In theory it seems like it would be an easy thing to do (just scribble with some crayons, right?) but it’s exceptionally hard to get back to the point where you’re making art for fun, from the gut and without pretensions or preconceived notions on “how it should look.” According to her, It has taken 32 years, 2 schools, and approximately 486 paintings to get to this point. I can so relate!
Living and working in SanFrancisco, Mati has had numerous shows and has published some of her illustrations, along with having a successful Etsy shop!
