as many of you know, I have some artists who inspire me endlessly, people like
Sheila Norgate, Caroline James, Grant Leier, Nixie Barton..…and fortunately for me, I actually know some of these people, and they are my friends and peers…….sweetness…..
and now I have discovered someone new and exciting to me…..you know how it is…following a path online and I can’t really say how I ended up finding Marti Somers……I can say that I LOVE her work and felt very inspired to see what she is creating…..
in the book “Steal Like An Artist” Austin Kleon says we are all doing mash-ups and remixes and when you are inspired by many people and then it works it’s way through you then something authentic will emerge…..that is my intention when I am creating….because I am influenced by so much that I see and hear……
this mixed media piece kind of reminds me of some of the glass pieces I created last year…the quilted series….I have always been attracted to patchworked art, whether it be textile, glass, collage, paint…whatever……I love crazy quilts…..
Who’s inspiring you right now?
