as many of you know, I have some artists who inspire me endlessly, people like
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?
