Stephen Appleby-Barr

This is not so much a studio visit, it is just a straight forward interview. The work is so good I felt it didn't really need anything else, really. It was just posted today on the NOW site, because his opening is tonight! I just took a look at the Narwhal site and it seems all of pieces are already sold!!! Which is completely understandable, considering how well received his first solo was. I was so glad I had a chance to get Stephen to answer some of my questions just a couple days before his show...he was so prompt and polite. I know I write this about everyone I interview, but I did enjoy his answers alot. They seemed so honest and casual but also smart. I think the interview turned out nicely. The opening is tonight at Narwhal, I am not one for attending crowded art gallery openings but this one I will not miss out on, thats for sure.
Let me know what you think of this interview:

Anneke van Bommel

This is something new I just started doing with TCA. It is similar to the Artist Profiles...but a little bit different. I am excited to be apart of TCA, and was so happy Anneke agreed to be my first victim for the interview. Her subject matter really intrigued me, and how stunning and simple her peices look. I really want one of her axe brooches (hint-hint). We also talked about her NSCAD experience... She is really busy, I could tell by how many different projects she had on the go at her studio. I was impressed by how tidy and organzied the space was...kinda like my work space. Anneke doesn't have a website, but you can see her pieces on Etsy.
Also read the interview and let me know what you think of's new so any input would be welcome...

Gillian Wilson

It has been a couple weeks since my previous Artist Profile, again so much is happening right now that I just couldn't get it together in time. I have just moved into a new place, it has taken me a long time to find something. I have so much work ahead of me to make it feel like a home.
Lets just say it feels like a "dude" house. Mostly it just needs some love and alot of cleaning. I do have a few Profiles lined up, so there will not be a gap. Back to Gillian and her lovely artwork that makes me swoon. She is such a talented lady, I saw her website first and that really impressed me. When she sent me her answers, I was really surprised that we have alot in common. I like when that happens. She is one of those artists that I would love to buy one of her paintings, maybe one day, I will. My new place could use some art on the walls (once the walls are clean). So check out her site and the interview, it is really sweet.
