This is both the blog banner for Corrine's JafaBrit's Art blog and an incredible self portrait!
This Sunday on Dirty Footprints Studio Talk Jennifer from the blog Gallery Girl and her friend and fellow Artist Corrine from JafaBrit's Art will be the special guests!!! These two wonderful ladies will be calling from chilly, freezing Ohio...for a conversation on Art, Creativity, and the ways a group of women Artists called the Jafa Girls create havoc!!!
Jennnifer creates some of the most juiciest, delicious paintings. She combines expressive colors and brushstrokes with whimsical references to nature...and my absolute favorite: TREES!!! (Must be a midwest thing!!)
Jennifer is a full time Artist that used to own and run the recently closed NOLAA gallery...as sad as this is, Jennifer knows first hand the challenges Artists and Art Galleries have in this tough economy. But, her positive and witty outlook on life is infectious and she will definitely be a well of insight for Artists now-a-days looking for answers.
You can find more of Jennifer's work on her Etsy shop: Gallery Girl Jen. Jen assured me too that NOLAA gallery will carry on its mission through her blog and on-line efforts where "real art does not match the furniture"!!!!
I am so looking forward to speaking with Corrine of JafaBrit's Art blog too!! Not only is Corrine an amazing Artist--always exploring the inklings of her heart through different techniques, mediums, and genres---going to her blog is always informative on anything from Art and painting to political issues or social concerns. You will spend a good amount of time admiring and studying Corrine's own personal work she posts....then the same amount of time exploring the fascinating links she includes.
What I love most about Corrine's Art is the quirkiness of her pieces. There is always an ounce or two of humor and a dash of sarcasm!! Take a close look at her journal entries above and you can not help but be in awe while wearing a smile!
To see and buy more of Corrine's work check it out HERE.
I can't wait to be inspired!
Last, I look forward to learning more about the group of Artists Jen and Corrine belong to called the Jafa Girls!! You can check out their blog HERE and look above as they add a little flare and knitted joy to a street pole!! Plus--you have to go to their site to see where their Art Ball machine is showing up next! How cool is that!
