A Sense of Place

PigLips-Web2I'm really excited about the new prints I took to Naked Art last week. They're my first screenprints for sale, and they feel fresh, bold, different--and satisfying.

I've been reevaluating my art in the time since I wrote my book, trying to figure out what  I'm trying to capture in my prints and what techniques I want to use to translate it to the viewer. I've been inspired by our local chefs, who use Alabama ingredients and traditional cooking techniques as the foundation to create amazing dishes and unique flavors that give diners a sense of place, or terroir. I want to do the same thing, but with art, and I think these two new screenprints approach that--and open the door to more ideas in that vein. In the future, you'll see more screenprints, more screenprints mixed with block prints, prints combined with mixed media, more original drawings, more one-of-a-kind pieces, and new ways to look at our city, state, and region in a whole new light.

I hope you enjoy the new prints. Let me know what you think of them.
