MAY's Line and Lyric WINNER IS... Davs!

Another amazing Line and Lyric contest winner... Davs!  With May's Line and Lyric theme of the poem Hellgirl by Anastasia Brown as inspiration, Davs created an extraordinary painting of a woman roaming through patterns entitled "Roam."

A special thanks to all of the wonderful participants and voters
in the Art School Grad art contest! We hope to see all of your talent represented in the coming Line and Lyric contests.

1.) Who are you and what do you do?
I am a self-taught artist, mother of two beautiful boys, audio-book aficionado, inventor of the alligator clothespin magnet and an over enthusiastic cook.

2.) From your colorful palette knife paintings to your lovely mixed media works, is there a particular medium in which you prefer or feel more comfortable working with?
I've only been painting with a palette knife for a few months now but lately I feel the most comfortable working with one.

3.) What inspires you?
I recently came across this quote by Scott Adams that goes: "Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep." That inspires me because it's a reminder that I don't have to be perfect and my art is a good example of that.

4.)  If you could have one super power, what would it be?
Is time traveling a super power? Cause if it is I would totally be a time traveler!

5.)  What is your favorite part of the creative process?
When I'm right in the middle of my painting, when I'm in the zone I guess you could say.
6.) Three things you can't live without.
You say things so I assume that means my children are already included;) 1.) art supplies  2.) books  3.) music

7.) What artists, past and/or present, do you admire?
My Dad is an artist and of course I look up to him ( I've always been a fan of VanGogh.

8.) What piece of business advice would you share with artists just starting out on Etsy?

9.) Did you always see yourself as an artist?
