people are one of my biggest inspirations. to me it's truly mind blowing to see what beautiful things we are capable of being and creating. because people are doing some AMAZING things out there.
i mean out right jealously inducing fits of talent exist everywhere because great people keep doing their thing. living life and putting themselves out and in to the world for all to see. sharing those gifts is special and for me it's important to remember these talented individuals.
with my newest feature the 'Talent Show' i plan on doing just that!
i was over the moon excited to go since i had been dying to see her amazing pieces! a few years back i first saw this lovely lady's art in an issue of a magazine i stumbled on in the library, hi-fructose.. heard of it? ever since i can't help myself, if i see one in a barnes & noble it's coming home with me.
i was mesmerized by the magazine being filled with so many different types of artists working in such a wide variety of mediums. slowly thumbing eagerly through each page when i arrived at Sylvia Ji's feature it was like getting a present on your birthday! these intensely dark eyed enchanting women, with piles of pink hair held into place with flowers, adorned with live spiders was just pure magic. sure a little twisty and seemingly morose magic, but so much life lives on those her wooden canvases of hers.
forever a favorite.
my gorgeous niece! sixteen never looked so cool.
instagraming as par usual. photos of taking photos
crazy talented artist herself! she was sweet to sign a post card for me. it's always a neat experience to get to tell someone how much you love what they clearly love so much.
the small gallery's busyness made for a pretty intimate gathering of people, which i thought was fitting to the mood and vibe of her showcase.
instantly in love again and again.
hope you enjoy as much as i do.
