Episode 163: Today I talk to Christina Steward, an Atlanta-based artist. We have such an inspiring chat! She was a computer programmer until she felt an intense creative calling. So she made the switch to full-time artist and hasn’t looked back since. Since then, her work has gone through several incarnations, from painting/drawing to jewelry to knitting/ pattern designing.
Episode 160: Today I talk to L.A. collage artist Dale Voelker, who I discovered on Saatchi.com. I was drawn in by his colorful art mixed with text. When I found out he owned a graphic design studio, I knew I had to talk to him. We talk about the line between corporate and fine art, among other things.
Episode 161: Today I talk to Andrea Downs, who is here, in Charlotte. She created the Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry installation, that is currently at the Mint Museum of Charlotte. But Airing Out the “Dirty” Laundry is also an ongoing community art movement that responds to the silencing of women. Both create space to share experiences through visual storytelling. This installation is the collective voices of nearly 400 “Laundry Day” participants that have chosen to share their visual narratives.
