If you’ve been following along in my Instagram Stories, you’ll know that this week has brought some ‘early art’ discoveries!
I brought a dusty bin filled with 15 years of drawings, prints and paintings from my attic and into my studio to explore. Including a stack of art-filled sketchbooks covering 15 years and dating back over 30 years!! Will you notice the thematic seeds that would one day blossom into my current work?
TAKE THE SKETCHBOOK TOUR:
Join me in combing through Part One of 15 years of my drawings, beginning when I was 14 years old and already drawing babies and women. Discover the early stages of a 30-year career as a motherhood artist; with seeds that took root and tender sprouts that would eventually blossom into over 1800 finished paintings and other original works, as well as thousands of collectors, hundreds of media mentions, eight illustrated books, and the distinction of being cited as the #1 motherhood artist in America.
Stay Tuned for a special limited-time fun-thing announcement 😊
I’d LOVE if you'd be willing to comment on the Sketchbook Tour video and tell me which drawing(s) stood out to you! THANK YOU!
Want More Early Art Discoveries?
The pieces in the box include linoleum prints, early submissions to publishing companies, graphic design, logo design and naming my studio! I also uncover artwork (and how it's made!) created for, and in honor of, my father ♥ more about this special guy later.
Final Tidbit: this song* has been a balm to my soul, in actuality I love to sing along with the "If you both outgrew one another, I could start now looking for a lover, but if love dies, do I fu**ing bother?"* part (okay, I love singing along with everything they write). If you are a child of divorce, the song might touch your heart, too ♥
Wishing you a beautiful week's end!
Love & Sincerely, Katie
