In the Studio with Alison Woods

What does a day in your art practice look like? I begin the process by researching, collecting, and manipulating digital images. A composite image is completed and transferred to canvas using a wide variety of techniques. Finally, the canvas is approached with poured and spray paint, rollers, stencils, and brushes to complete the image. I search, collect, and catalog digital […]

What does a day in your art practice look like?  A perfect ‘home’ day starts with an uninterrupted hour of drawing and journaling. Check my email then up to the studio to work for a few hours. Exercise and eat lunch, then back to the studio for a few more hours. Time at the computer for research and admin, then […]

What does a day in your art practice look like?A typical day in my life starts with my rambunctious five-year-old waking me up a bit too early. I get him ready and walk the seven blocks to his school and back. Then I’m able to get into my studio which is a converted garage behind my house near Mt Tabor […]

What would life be like without art?For me, life would be rudderless without art. It’s like an old friend whom you may lose touch with from time to time but that you know is always there for support if you need it. As a kid I learned to love the joy of painting through my father, and as I got […]

What does a day in your art practice look like? Mornings tend to be reserved for the “business” of life, e.g., walk dog, any meetings, conversations, yoga, errands, etc. In short, I want a clear head when I get to the studio so I’m not distracted by a “to do” list. While in the studio, I dislike interruptions from texts […]

What do you wish to accomplish with your art? My wish is for my art to reflect the beauty of being alive, instill in others an appreciation of this mystery we call life, and an appreciation of the responsibilities and freedom with which it comes. I want my audience to see in my work an open-ended invitation to explore their […]

What does a day in your art practice look like? I’m currently working on a large project that spans several months.  The panels I’m working with are too large to fit inside of my current space, so I’m forced to work outside in the elements. Plaster work composes a large part of my surface treatments so that means I’m contending […]

In the Studio with Susan Amorde

When was the first time that you remember realizing that you are a creative person? Ever since I can remember. I was always the kid in class making the large size paintings about the topic of the day. In fact, I still have a large painting on rolled up butcher paper of jungle animals that I did in elementary school—probably […]

When was the first time that you remember realizing that you are a creative person?My earliest memories are all ones where I am exploring art: in the first grade I learned about Van Gogh, second grade I painted the eyes on our class’s life size paper-maché camel sculpture, and third grade I got glasses which allowed me to see leaves […]
