My Dad is an artist and as kids, our vacations would revolve around art shows. I look at art in a different way that most buyers do (at least I think I do). Creating my own art has given me greater respect for artists, it also gives me that important time to myself, away from my kids and life. Without it, I would be lost. It is part of me. It is my life.

art has always been a part of my life, mostly thanks to my mom and to great art departments in the public schools i attended. my only regret is not pursuing art as a career early on.
now i’m finding myself immersed in art on a regular basis and love sharing everything and anything creative with my 4 year old son.

Oh, I am so in love with tastes Orangey’s work! I can’t possibly pick one favorite. I love fall and hidden.

Jodie

Gotta love the burro….he’s so cute!

Art plays a HUGE role in my life. Not only do I paint, draw, photograph (and also graduated college with an art degree), but I also own and run a custom framing shop. I come in contact with fabulous art everyday!

And if Art didn’t already consume my life enough, I’ve also taught my three ponies how to paint, and my dachshund makes world famous scratch art.

I can’t imagine my life without art!

Tastes Orangey Sewn Print Giveaway! « What. No Mints?

One favorite? how about 4.
Jump, So cozy, Shadows, To the clouds.
I love them so so much.
Art has made a huge impact on me throughout my life. For as long as i can remember I have been sewing, knitting, crocheting, photographing, coloring, painting, drawing, you name it. I am now attending an art college in Boston to pursue my dream as an illustrator. I also hope to become a child and family photographer after college. Through every struggle in my life, art has always been my fallback. After my brother passed away, art is what kept me going, I just pushed through it by focusing every bit of my energy on my art and creative process. I just love lovellove the simplicity and beauty in Clare Elsaesser’s work, especially the sewn pieces.

I love all the prints that involve bedding – But this one speaks to me: It’s how I feel EVERY time I have to wake up in the morning …

And finally:

Art is my escape from the left-brained world I function in most hours of the day. I’m a research assistant and will hopefully be accepted to a PhD program this coming spring to study in the area of environmental chemistry.

My full-time job for the forseeable future involves calculations and precision and experimental procedures (which don’t get me wrong – I friggin’ love it!) so art and crafting is my way to let my left brain take a back seat for a while and let my right brain stretch its legs. It keeps me well-rounded and my brain in constant motion so I don’t get bored or stuck in repetition.

i’d pick boat shoes and give it to my brother for christmas… he was in the coast guard up until this summer. it would be a good keepsake of his time spent at sea!

courtney

art has always been something i was fond of, but until recently has been put on the back burner in the pursuit of a career. i’ve decided to open my own shop online selling quilts i’ve made, and hope that art can be at the forefront, rather than off in the distance now!

courtney

i’m sort of torn between ‘one with the blanket’ and ‘hooded’ ..they’re both really dark and mysterious and beautiful.

i think ‘hooded’ wins

What role has art played in your life thus far?
I grew up in a very creative, artistic family and my mom always valued being creative in our everyday lives. I think it helps me think outside the box in many situations and it certainly developed a hobby for crafting!

Looking at art gives me inspiration and energy. Me and my husband have been visiting museums all over the world since the day we met and it great to enjoy beautiful things together, it has become an important part of our relationship. he gave me my first piece of art (by Stanley Donwood) when I graduated.
And I try to make some things myself as well, but I wouldn’t call that art. I enjoy it though.

What role has art played in your life thus far?

I consider art my life saver. It kept me out of trouble as a kid, helped me work through problems and now its one of the reasons that I wake up happy in the morning. It feeds my soul and keeps me challenged.

I use art as a form of expressing myself and escaping the real world for a little bit. I like painting with oil.

Art is how I make a living, as I’m sure it does most people here! So, in short, it’s vitally important to my lifestyle and well-being. Staying creatively inspired day after day is challenging but endlessly rewarding. I started out painting and crafting, and turned my love of art into a graphic design career. When I have free time I love to dabble in more liberating, hands-on artistic endeavors. I wouldn’t imagine my life any other way!

Jen

what beautiful work! i think i like llama love best 🙂

My favorite is One with the Blanket because its abstract, and textured, and fresh like a glimpse of a stolen moment

What role has art played in my life so far? I have studied art and produced art, and now that I produce my own craft work , my time as an artist still influences my designs, I think and respond and react through art, its a vehicle for clarifying my thoughts, and I mean visual art and contemporary dance and live music:-)

I posted the competition on my facebook page here http://www.facebook.com/penny.farrow, thanks for this !

Life is art no matter what your doing. So somebody has to tell clear my parents of the undermining misconceptions I was raised under and to teach my younger siblings not to devalue it. I am still a teenager, young adult at best. Still discovering everything beautiful. Still finding ways to prove this wrong.

“Art will never profit. When will you do something productive with your life?”

To my loving, but highly confused parents: When the product of my life will come down to a breath caught half in exhale, half in beauty. Then you will buy my art, and I will have turned a profit.

My absolute favorite is “smokey crow.” But it was hard to pick one favorite!
