glitter soup.


‘glitter soup’ from art candy

years ago, when visiting my daughter in australia, i met her friend jenni gray, (the artist behind art candy), and she has remained a friend to both of us ever since. while visiting, we had tea, a tour of the space where her art happens, and she even let me peek into a drawer filled with glitter. as a lifelong fan of glitter, it was like magic, and what could be better?

over the years, i’ve followed her work, and have become the lucky owner of some of her art. jenni works with mixed media creating beautiful whimsical art and cards. when she told me that her recent piece, named ‘glitter soup’ reminded her of me, i was honored.


jenni’s origin story is this: “Art Candy began at art school inspired by a love of language, especially slang, colour and the sheer exuberence of enjoying life !” she has certainly lived up to that and more. take a peek at her work in the link below, it’s sure to put a smile on your face.

Sweetness with soul.

  1. What a heart-warming story, Beth! Her work is packed full of color, fun, and creativity. I am always a little jealous of artists they can create with their hands. From now on, I will look at every bowl of soup wondering where the glitter is!

  2. Really like that first painting… AND I love meeting new people and if there is a connection, forging a life-long friendship with them. Some of my bestest friends I first met (and some only) online. Some I met ‘in the flesh’ and we stayed forever in contact. Some I met via my photo site on Flickr where I feel very bad about because I haven’t posted anything in ages but still hope to come back to sooner rather than later…. And the path to hell is plastered with good intentions! Love art in all its forms and expressions.
