Dolan Geiman is now my new favorite artist. His constructions are so simple yet soo refined. I love his use of recycled materials and fun spirit. Once originaly from Virginia, he now lives in Chicago, no wonder I love his style: country with modern appeal. Most of his work is made from recycled wood, paper, and paint. I love the way he used old paint sticks in his circular piece.
Love this artists work as well. Catherine Hammerton creates these beautiful textile, mixed media pieces that all remind me of birds in flight, or pooling fish. They seem inspired by Japanese culture or vintage wallpaper, but then her wall pieces can be so modern and slightly minimalist. The best way to view her work is to just go to her site!
I found this new artist Catherine Campbell whose work is so simple, yet detailed, flirty, and creative. Such a great sence of design and great idea for students. Love the idea of drawing mixed with fabric/paper as simple pattern, and just her use of color as pattern. So great.
Casey Gray's work is made entirely of stencils and spray paint. Such fantastic sence of composition, and I love the patterns created and colors used. I of course love the imagery and content as well.
Love, love, love, Kelsey Brookes! His work is so fun but serious at the same time. I guess that's what happens when you worked as a biochemist. Straight from his bio: Kelsey Brookes is a former biochemist who attributes his raw style to an education system that "refuses to teach scientists to draw.” He abandoned biochemistry because, “I thought I was going to be there for a few months to make some money and get out of there. Four years later I was left wondering if I had become what I always despised – the funny guy at the water cooler, except not so funny. I was the confused, not so funny guy at the water cooler.” Science’s loss is art’s gain
Cole Gerst has such great prints/mixed media pieces, I think I need to do a silk screening work with my Design II, with his inspiration of course. Thank you Laura again for such a great artist.
Sage Vaughn is an artist I came across in a shoe campaign for Vans shoes. Such beautiful work. However with this artist, I think I acutally like his images of children better than the birds. I love how the art is beautiful to look at, but has a message of distruction, mess, and the innocent.
Geninne D. Zlatkis has such a light, fun-hearted styel of working, I love her bird pieces. Her website is simply beautiful, and I love the mixed media style of working, with material and such.
http://postcard-exhibition.blogspot.com/ is an awesome site, so many cool artists. Such a great rexource for teachers
Patricia Niven is an artist who works with Container Plus, who I did a post on earlier, but I love her photography and photo collages as well.

I am not only an artist but also a teacher, so I spend a lot of time looking for cool artists. So I started this site to share my findings with others like me.
