I'm much more of a seventy degrees girl. The hot weather kind of makes me want to hide inside. The good part is that there is always an excuse to find a pool and cool off. It's also the time of year where salad becomes mandatory, for me anyway. I'll take a salad and a cupcake on the side please. I'm thinking of taking on a new project, it's not too art related but kind of. Best of luck in all you are doing!

What is your name: Kristen Hotham Carroll
Do you have a formal art education or are you a self taught artist: With the exception of one college course, I am largely self taught.
What is the style of your pieces: I have a very loose, very free style. I don’t like to hit people over the head with my ideas or images. I like to show a hint of my subject, and leave room for much more interpretation beyond. I think of art as a very collaborative experience between the artist and the viewer.
What is the medium in which you work: I use acrylics and oils mainly, but also charcoal, pastels, and photography. I most often paint with a palette knife.
What started you on your path as an artist: I embraced creative outlets from a very young age. I was humming and “singing” before I could even speak. My parents were great about exposing me and my sister to the arts, and we often went to plays and musicals. My parents noticed artistic talent in me as a child, and I attended private art lessons for many years when I was quite young. For many years, I supported myself through a career in healthcare administration, but I have been thrilled to recently make the leap to living life as a full time artist.
What is one of the most important things that art has brought to your life: Art is the texture of my life.
What is your favorite genre of art besides the one you work in: I love mixed media.
Do you have art showings, and if so what are they typically like: My work is on display at Wet Paint Gallery in Key West, FL, as well as a few other locations, but I have done shows as well. It’s a wonderful opportunity to connect with people and discussing art often generates the most personal and meaningful discussions.
Do you have a certain set of clothes you make art in: Ha! I joke that all of my clothes are now “painting” clothes. I try to keep my paint clothes separate. I most often paint in scrubs and a t shirt. I would guestimate that I have about 20 “painting” t shirts. I am a VERY messy artist. I’m pretty sure I have paint on my hands, face, and in my hair as I type this to you…
What has been the most frustrating part of being an artist? Nothing. I love every part of being an artist.
What is your favorite sandwich of all time: Prosciutto and Mozzarella Panini from Tano’s Pizzeria in Manchester, NH.
Has this year brought about any changes in your work, and if so what are they: I am working on 52 figures, 26 male and 26 female. It has been very interesting and challenging to create so many different formats for the same subject. Figures are my favorite thing to paint, though, so I’m having a blast with this project.
Who is your favorite artist alive or dead: My wife, Chris Hotham Carroll, of course!
What is the most moving piece of artwork that you have seen in person: Honestly, it was one of Chris’s pieces, called Broken. I have attached a copy for you.
Do you have any animals, and what do they think of your work: I used to have animals, and they loved my work! Animals and children seem to appreciate the complete and utter disaster and chaos that is my creating space…adults have other thoughts…;-)
Do you have any upcoming exhibitions you would like to share with us: The best place to see my work live is at our gallery in Key West, Wet Paint, at 430 Duval St. I also have a few pieces in the Island Décor in the Keys Gallery in Tavernier. I keep facebook updated with ongoing exhibits and gallery listings.
Why is it called the art world? Maybe because it is actually a different world from which we live. Everyone is not invited. In this broad spectrum uninvitation people are alienated. Artists are alienated to. Galleries are having a hard time right now, but artwork is still selling. Why do you suppose this is? Are we tired of the super elitism... Has the spectrum of art become so pinched that we are missing the flow, the beat of the real drum? If I were to cast a guess it would go like this. Artists are quantified by their sell ability, and this meter is skewed. Everyone wants what is hot at the moment, yet there are few willing to take a risk on creatives that have not been proven. Where does that leave us? Seeing the same thing coast to coast, prairie to prairie, cow patty to cow patty. The same same thing. Who is being inventive. What galleries are taking the risks? Have you seen any? Do you know whose work you are looking at when you see it, or does it all look like it just came out of one big movement... I can generally name for you what you will see in most galleries around.

What is your name: Jina Wallwork
Do you have a formal art education or are you a self taught artist: I trained at Staffordshire University.
What is the style of your pieces: The work is constantly evolving and changing. Style based labels, can sometimes restrict the natural evolution of your art. I embrace an organic free-flowing process where I don't aim to create in any particular style. However, I am still influenced by great artists and because of this certain stylistic influences will become more prominent at different times.
What is the medium in which you work: I paint mainly in acrylic.
What started you on your path as an artist: This path is very much a reflection of who I am. Art is an expression of self; it is a method of communicating and interacting with the world. The desire to communicate visually has always been within me.
What is one of the most important things that art has brought to your life: I find it difficult to imagine life without art. It is so integrated into my life, I don't think I can separate its influence in order to fully appreciate all it has given me.
What is your favorite genre of art besides the one you work in: It is very difficult to compare different genres. Abstract expressionism is amazing because of its focus on gesture. Surrealism creates some amazing aesthetics. They are both valuable to an artist in completely different ways. I find myself influenced by aspects of a genre, rather than being completely submerged within it.
Do you have art showings, and if so what are they typically like: They are all very different.
Do you have a certain set of clothes you make art in: It would probably be sensible to do so. I paint in whatever I'm wearing. I have a collection of clothes that feature paint marks.
What has been the most frustrating part of being an artist? I only found being artist frustrating when I believed what others said about the profession. If you don't have any successful artists within your social network, you begin to believe it is impossible to succeed with your circumstances. People talk of the obstacles within the profession. They make them seem much larger than they are. Andy Warhol was the forth child of a working class immigrant family. He then went on to be one of the most successful artists of his generation. Some limitations are imaginary.
What is your favorite sandwich of all time: Banana.
Has this year brought about any changes in your work, and if so what are they: A large volume of small changes; rather than large abrupt changes. It is an evolving practice.
Who is your favorite artist alive or dead: Michelangelo. Mikhail Vrubel, Franz Marc, Giovanni Segantini .... to name a few. I could never pick a single artist. We are truly blessed with the art that we have access to.
What is the most moving piece of artwork that you have seen in person: It has to be a series by Ferdinand Hodler. His mistress was diagnosed with cancer and he painted her final days. I haven't seen these pieces in person but I do find them very emotionally charged.
Do you have any animals, and what do they think of your work: My tree sculpture is used by birds and squirrels. I have received no complaints.
Do you have any upcoming exhibitions you would like to share with us: Yes I have some exhibitions both in the UK and the US. There are more details on my website.
Web address www.jinawallwork.co.uk
What is your name: Katie Berenson
Do you have a formal art education or are you a self taught artist: I am a self taught artist.
What is the style of your pieces: Pop portrait art.
What is the medium in which you work: I work in mixed media style of acrylic and original photography.
What started you on your path as an artist: I have been an artist for as long as I can remember, age 2, haha. But I did take a long absence for about 5 years. One night I woke up from a strange dream and immediately called my best friend. I explained the imagery in the dream and she told me this was very Dali-like and I had to paint it. So...I did. With this experience I somehow rediscovered my love for painting.
What is one of the most important things that art has brought to your life: Art has brought me a release like nothing else can. It gives me a chance to show people how I see the world.
What is your favorite genre of art besides the one you work in: I am very interested in water color. I find it to be very difficult and therefore it fascinates me.
Do you have art showings, and if so what are they typically like: Yes I do have art showings. I take a lot of time picking the gallery or venue, hiring the right DJ, designing the right lighting etc.... I think these are all just as important as creating the perfect piece of art. Without the atmosphere the show can be ruined. I try to create a fun usually bright Neon-like atmosphere. And of course it is always a great party.
Do you have a certain set of clothes you make art in: I always make art in my pajamas. So usually underwear and a ratty tank top.
What has been the most frustrating part of being an artist? The most frustrating part is the promotion and business side of it. I am more of the creator not the business woman.
What is your favorite sandwich of all time: Definitely pb&j
Has this year brought about any changes in your work, and if so what are they: This year my work has taken a brighter turn. I've turned everything into a big ball of Neon.
Who is your favorite artist alive or dead: Andy Warhol and Salvador Dali both for very different reasons.
Do you have any animals, and what do they think of your work: Unfortunately I don't have any animals. Although I am dying for puppy...and I'm sure she will love my art.
Do you have any upcoming exhibitions you would like to share with us: I just closed my exhibition NEON UNDERGROUND in Hollywood at Freak City. I will be heading home to NYC for the summer and hope to exhibit while I am in town.

KENSETH ARMSTEAD WILL PRESENT HIS FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION SPOOK™: INVOCATION AT LMAK PROJECTS June 23rd – August 1st, 2011
Graphic novel inspired drawings celebrate and depict the life of the revolution era spy James Armistead Lafayette
NEW YORK, NY, April 13, 2011 — Critically acclaimed artist Kenseth Armstead will present his first solo exhibition, Spook™: INVOCATION at the gallery LMAKprojects on June 23rd, 2011. He invites the viewer to join him in ambitiously inserting a Founding Father into the pantheon of heroes traditionally celebrated over the July 4th holiday.
Spook™: INVOCATION shares and celebrates the life of historical figure James Armistead Lafayette, a slave, turned spy, who provided intelligence to help end the American Revolution. Armstead specifically focuses on the year of 1781, when James was successfully working as a double agent for America’s first Director of Central Intelligence, George Washington.
After extensive historical research, Armstead re-tells the story of James Armistead Lafayette through the contemporary portal of the Graphic Novel Format. The exhibition Spook™: INVOCATION will be comprised of thirty works, hand drawn images, taken from three months in the spying life of James, from his first mission for George Washington, under the command of the Marquis Lafayette, to his dangerous compact with the most feared British General, Lord Charles Cornwallis. This re-mixed take on the story, forces the viewer to examine whether all of our history has been told. James, a lost hero, is drawn in context, for the first time, as a fully realized character.
A true multimedia artist, Armstead traded in his digital video-editing suite in favor of graphite pencils and paper for this project. Utilizing traditional drawing techniques, the works in Spook™: INVOCATION range from detailed close ups, based on historical 18th century portraiture of the main characters, to the use of the likeness of Jamie Foxx as the spy James, or large scale, rough hewn battle scenes that viscerally channel the brutality of war.
“James Armistead Lafayette is an exciting character in the American Revolution. He’s falls somewhere between James bond, an often conflicted spy, and Maximus the Gladiator, a slave who fights to preserve the lofty goals of a growing empire.” Kenseth Armstead
Opening on June 23rd, 2011 Spook™: INVOCATION will be on view through August 1st, 2011. Located in the heart of the Lower East Side, LMAKprojects, 139 Eldridge Street, is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11am till 6 pm and Sunday by appointment.
High-resolution images, gallery previews and artist studio tours are available upon request.
ABOUT THE ARTISTKenseth Armstead’s multimedia and installation works have been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum; Whitney Museum of American Art; Bronx Museum; Studio Museum in Harlem and MIT. They are in numerous collections including the Centre Pompidou and African-American Museum in Dallas, Texas. Grants he has won include the Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, NYFA individual artist award in video, NYSCA individual artist award in film/video, the Camille Hanks Cosby Fellowship and a Creative Capital Foundation Grant in film/video. He received a BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and an MS from the Polytechnic institute of NYU. He participated in the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture and the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program.

What is your name: David Graham.
Do you have a formal art education or are you a self taught artist: I did recieve my BFA but I was primaraly taught graphic design and little fine art, I guess its little self taught and little educated.
What is the style of your pieces: The theme of death but the humor and campiness of an exploitation film.
What is the medium in which you work: Acrylics and sharpie marker.
What started you on your path as an artist: After college when I gave up on graphic design I fell in love with creating portraits of dead people.
What is one of the most important things that art has brought to your life: It gave me a way to connect to people.
What is your favorite genre of art besides the one you work in: I really love vintage movie culture and my favorite art form is the old grindhouse style posters. Between the absurd subject material and cheapness I have a soft spot for this lost movie poster art form.
Do you have art showings, and if so what are they typically like: My art showings have mainly been in bars or very small venues. When I start getting gallery shows I want to treat them like a funeral service. But a fun funeral service.
Do you have a certain set of clothes you make art in: Usually my pajamas since I paint from home.
What has been the most frustrating part of being an artist? Trying to find venues to show at or even galleries to look at my work.
What is your favorite sandwich of all time: A sandwich in pizza or taco form.
Has this year brought about any changes in your work, and if so what are they: I am more obsessive with my paintings in trying to get them just the way I want them. I blame "Black Swan" for making me obsessive but havent gone to that extreme of stabbing my face yet.
Who is your favorite artist alive or dead: Diane Arbus.
What is the most moving piece of artwork that you have seen in person: This comic book cover James Jean did for the comic "Fables". It was a painting of a pilgrim drowning two women from the Salem Witch Trials. It was really morbid and I fell in love with it instantly.
Do you have any animals, and what do they think of your work: No pets but im sure they wouldnt like it. Animals are kind of rude when it comes to stuff like that.
Do you have any upcoming exhibitions you would like to share with us: I have a show in the backroom of a really nice gallery in Greenlawn, Long Island called The Ripe Art Gallery but other than that no shows but I do post them on the Facebook fan page.
