Artist Web Sites
his is a list of websites from some of my favorite artists online. Often times they will have tutorials, show off their studios, share workshop dates, or write about the inspiration behind their art. I really enjoy seeing what other people are doing and what their thinking process is. (The image above is by DeduloPhotos from MorgueFile.)
- Ingrid Dijkers ~ Contemporary fantasy dolls, collage dolls, altered books and journals.
- Ann Baldwin ~ Read about Ann’s journey from abstract collage artist to photographer, and take a look at her work — past and present.
- Jonathan Talbot ~ A collage artist and painter, Jonathan’s web site showcases his beautiful artwork and his method for “glueless” collage. I had the pleasure of taking a class with him in 2003, and he taught me a lot. You can read some of his inspiring comments about art at Words of Wisdom by Jonathan Talbot. For more up-to-date info from Mr. Talbot, be sure to visit his Facebook page.
- Claudine Hellmuth ~ Claudine Hellmuth’s web site has a portfolio of wonderful collage art. She occasionally teaches classes, and she sells rubber stamps, too.
- Nita Leland ~ At Ms. Leland’s colorful web site, Exploring Color and Creativity, lots of articles and tutorials to help you with collage and other art techniques. Also be sure to check out her blog.
