Gallery of Artists 2018
Artists create because they have no choice: after breathing it is second nature. Creation is an avocation, not always easy, but always fulfilling. Artists also have lives, but a life grounded in the creative process. Usually if an artist isn’t making art they are thinking about making art. Meeting an artist on their own terms in their studio is a casual affair. Their artistic natures often spill over into lovely gardens and whimsical unexpected touches. An artist’s studio is a work place where their oeuvre and working methods can be viewed in tandem. Artists are a varied and quirky lot, sometimes quite proficient in a number of mediums. The hallmarks of an artist’s work are often punctuated by forays into other creative mediums, because an artist’s life is suffused in the creative process.
