Interview With Mary Bedy

mary-bedy.pixels.com When did you first become interested in art, in general? I remember collecting postcards of various artist’s work when I was about 10. I was fascinated with some of the abstract art by Kandinsky and Miro and a few other artists. I was always drawing horses when I was in grade school. To this day, I still like to draw, but works on paper or canvas became few and far between when I started raising a family and later was working many hours at my day job as the…

Interview With M M Anderson

mmandersonart.com When did you first become interested in art? I’ve been interested in art since I was a small child. Color has always fascinated me. I initially learned to mix colors by mixing my Play Doh into secondary colors from the primaries. I really didn’t take an art class until my senior year in high school though. Then I chose to major in art when I attended college at Lynchburg College in Virginia. My plan was to teach art but that didn’t pan out. I really didn’t do much with…

Interview with Dorothy Berry-Lound – ShannathShima

dorothyberryloundart.com When did you first become interested in art? I was very shy as a child but I loved art class at school. I had the most wonderful art teacher called Mrs Ward. She had coloured hair, big tinted glasses, flowing clothes and she made a huge impression on me. She was so confident and I hoped some of it would rub off! She got me to realise that I could draw and paint and she instilled in me a huge interest in the history of art. I have a…

Interview With Artist Kevin Callahan

http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/kevin-callahan.html When did you first become interested in art? I distinctly recall being four years old when I began drawing. I copied the Sunday funnies. I was reared on a small farm in Iowa in the 50s, so art was not considered a good pursuit but I seemed to be compelled. At age twelve, I became friends with a local painter who taught me some painting techniques and I would model for him. At about the same time I received a birthday present, a Paint-By-Numbers set. After a week or…

Interview With VIVA Anderson

http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/2-viva-anderson.html I first became interested in Art as a child, when I watched my handsome brother paint at home downstairs. He had lots of girlfriends and they loved having him paint them of course. At that time, around age 8, I also was making my own greeting cards/collages for my family. Lots of torn doilies, lol. My style varies, depending on my intent for the image. I am au fait with all contemporary and historical styles of Art. My own personal favourite style is Abstraction. At first, I was glad…

Interview with Artist and Musician Andy Jouan

www.andyjouan.com When did you first become interested in art? I guess initially when I was at secondary school, though it was always like a class you did.  The education system and work system wasn’t particularly encouraging me to continue. Then, in 2014, whilst living in London, I decided I wanted to do something more constructive with my Saturday mornings and started attending classes at London Art Classes. Being in a studio environment fanned the flames of the neglected creative within on more than one level. What were your musical influences…
