I’ve been an art enthusiast since I was old enough to draw on walls — back before washable crayons were a thing. I dabble in all media, though I predominately write and draw. Here’s my professional website if you want to learn more about that: https://kathleenmgill.wordpress.com/.
I started this blog in 2009 for a college class, and recently rebooted it because I missed it. I created this blog to inform the general public and art geeks alike about some artists whose work I consider worth taking a look at. These are artists who, for one reason or another, you may not normally study in a classroom. I’m also throwing my own works in the mix, if only to keep myself on track with my myriad of projects and to keep my critical eye engaged and ever evolving.
I believe art skills can be learned, as can the doggedness needed to succeed in the arts. Art is an outlet, it’s a way to share ideas and passions, to spread insights and express inner turmoil without so much as uttering a single word.
Art is enriching. Whether creating something or looking at someone else’s work, art is an experience that alters you a bit with every encounter. Art should be for everyone and by everyone, so check out my blog and we can share each other’s perceptions and expressions of reality.
