Miss Mindy lives and works out of her home/studio/mushroom house in Eagle Rock, CA. Her works consist mainly of woodcut paintings, mixed media shadow boxes, and fluid ink drawings and sketches. Miss Mindy has recently been describing her work as 'Cartoon Folk Art.' She blends her animation background with her original style to tell stories of girls and imps, fairies and troublemakers of a most endearing yet bizarre sort. Her narratives find leads in precarious and humorous circumstances with other players helping along the tales of mishaps and silly shenanigans.
Miss Mindy was born into a family of artists and designers which have been an inspiration since she was a child. Her grandmother worked as an ink and painter at Disney in the 1930’s, her grandfather was an illustrator, muralist and puppeteer. Her mother, the kindest woman alive... is an accomplished mask maker and artisan. Miss Mindy continues to closely work with her artist sister, CJ Metzger, on collaborative projects and art shows.
Miss Mindy has been working professionally as an artist for 10 years and has curated and participated in many gallery shows around the world. Animation and product design has also been apart of her artistic career. She's worked for various prestigious studios and companies, creating original content and adding her flair wherever she ventures.
Some of her past Clients Include, Hard Rock Cafe Worldwide, House of Blues, Planet Hollywood, Zippo, and Distinction Magazine. She also has contributed character & concepts for such studios as: Nickelodeon, Warner Brothers, 6 Point Harness, and The Chiodo Brothers.
Miss Mindy definitely has an affinity for past times, and loves to explore mood, expressions and bizarre humor. She enjoys experimenting with mixed media and tries to evoke a more vintage and folk art feel out of her artwork with her rough brush strokes, wood working skills, and keen eye for design and energy. Her artwork is sought after by a wide range of collectors from all over the United States, from Animation and film Industry professionals, to book publishers and film stars.
Miss Mindy has written and illustrated two books with Baby Tattoo Books Publishing.
