Art allows me to project my personality and soul into inanimate objects that I create; sometimes I realise things about myself while creating art that I didn’t really notice before.

I love the watercolour pile of teacups ( http://www.etsy.com/listing/35846882/watercolour-pile-of-teacups-8×10-print) and the art print teacups ( http://www.etsy.com/listing/52590625/art-print-teacups-on-leaves-8×10). Reminds me of sitting on a cold winter day and sipping on nice yummy mint tea with my boyfriend and reading the newspaper.

Art has played a huge role in my life so far. I currently live in Chicago and go to an art school so I suppose you could say that art is my life 🙂

LOVE these prints! It’s so hard to pick favorites, and definitely too hard to pick just one, so I have a few…
Downhill Dog Skiing ; Home Place Bird Pile ; Cityscape with bird

Tali Schiffer

So far, art has been a place of sanity and appreciation. It’s also been a source of conversation and debate for my husband and I.

I’ve Shared this giveaway on Facebook (though sharing it means my odds of winning are slimming…hmmm…)

Tali Schiffer

My answer to your question: Art has played a main role in my life. I’ve always created art, in one medium or another. I used to draw and paint when I was younger, and as I grew older I became more & more interested in photography, which later became my profession 🙂

Art in the sense of drawing/painting has not played a big part in my life, but art in the sense of designing such as scrapbooking/sewing has played a huge part in my life. I love creativity and this type of art is my outlet.

What role has art played in your life thus far?

As far as I know art has always played a role in my life – music, poetry, photography and drawing have always appealed to me. I get my creativity from both my parents. My mum is very crafty and my dad has a love for words. The first “art” I did was copying drawings from my favourite books and comics. My best drawings were done with wax crayons. I’m still ridiculously proud of those sketches! I started making jewelry when I was about 12 after I discovered seed beads on holiday in Paris. It’s my main outlet now. The artist that I find most interesting has to be Frida Kahlo. 🙂

Art to me comes in many forms and has permeated my life on several levels. I danced for 15 years, did choir for about 10 years, and am an avid quilter. I also adore museums and can sit and look at different forms of art for way too long. Art to me is a common language. Forms of dance, music, sculpture, paintings, fabrics…all are ways for people everywhere to connect on some level regardless of cultural or ethnic differences.

Bryanna

My favorite prints from the shop are the tea cup and dogwood as well as the watercolor of the pile of tea cups!

Bryanna

If I would win I would love to have these four prints:)

Art Print Love Dogs
Teacup Collage
Art Print Autumn Flowers and Birds
Art Print Tea and Dogwood in the Garden

I used to sketch when I was in my teens and I would’ve loved to pursue fine arts in college… I’m definitely a dabbler in the arts but it’s amazing to see works of so many talented artists!

Having rediscovered the joy of painting aged 39 (after a 26 year break), I am so thrilled to find a creative outlet so removed from the reality of being a SAHM with 3 children under 6. I can be *free* with it. There are no rules or limitations. It’s reminded me that I can do whatever I want. J x

Art is everywhere,it is in everything we do in our lives! As a family we cherish all sorts of works of art: our tea or coffee cups, hand blown wine glasses and decorative pieces, water colour paintings, pottery pieces, quilts, wooden sculptures… I could go on, but you must get the picture.

What role does art play in my life?

Art IS my life. I feel passionate enough about it to advocate it to the masses. I believe every human being has creative energy that have to unleash, we’re born to create. Your medium may not be traditional art, maybe you’re meant to make equations and theories- but that’s your art. I feel that problems in life stem from not unleashing your creativity. That’s my feelings on the role of art in my life and other’s lifes 🙂

My favorite pieces in this artists shop are: adrift, cityscape, farmer’s market, and farm

Van

Art is an incredible escape, an uplifiting thought, or a inspiration whenever I need it.

Cheryl Abbott

I love the love dogs, though downhill dog skiing is a close second!

Cheryl Abbott

I love the cityscape, children’s row of houses and the farm prints the most. Very interesting work!

Art has always played a big part in my life. As a child, I took regular trips to local art galleries and spent many Saturdays taking art classes. I even taught art classes to children while I was in University.

Role of Art in my life: I love art; when I was a school girl, art class was always my favorite time of the day, and my love of art has transferred into my career as a writer and photographer. In fact, one of my goals to complete by September 2011 (part of the 101 Resolutions in 1001 days that began on January 1, 2009) is to own an original piece of artwork, so if I won this, I’d be able to cross one more resolution off the list before that time!
