Announcement   mosartSTUDIOS is a sampling of the variety of work in the creative world of mo. most of the works are originals. recently, a few digitally printed reproductions on wood and premium papers have been added.

the collections go beyond her illustrations and 'theMINIs' with 'theWORKs', 'theWOODs', 'theSKETCHBOOK' . . . . and now 'urbanFiNGERPRiNTs' . . . as well as selection of etchings, stone lithography and linoleum block prints.

all start with the process of a drawing. the illustrations are ballpoint pen on illustration board with color pencil . . . the surfaces can change and sometimes acrylic takes the place of watercolor.

the collections all begin with charcoal, pastels and/or ballpoint pen. each work of art is as much about the surface texture and process of creation as it is about it's subject matter. the art often continues around the canvas to the sides .... as well as to the backs of 'theWORKs' on paper... the back sides become a 'little work of abstraction' themselves.

feel free to check out the mosart studios website for mo' insight into the work as well as a look into what is yet to come.

above all have fun + enjoy !!!

About

swallowed by the world of creativity .....

upon ending a competitive track career i began to wonder what challenge or career path would satisfy the 'forever student' in me ..... i decided if i was broke i would always be happy creating and since i was older i had a lot to catching up to do ..... so i jumped into school .... feet first and then the whole body submerged ..... or should i say back into school.

'forever student' is a term given to me by a former coach, friend and mentor of mine .... he is right it suits me well for i am always absorbing / learning about art .... my art .... animals ..... and sooooo much more. as well as i love to share. every one of my paintings is approached differently so each in itself is a learning experience .... an adventure.

2005 i graduated with an mfa in illustration. a few years later .... while finishing the book for a publishing house .... i found myself missing drawing workshops and interacting with other artists so i started attending classes .... they were just a short walk from my art desk. my love of getting down and dirty with charcoal and pastels finally found its way to a more permanent stage ..... 'theWORKs' collection. in 2011 i started slowly showing my work in public ..... art is meant to be shared not hidden away in a closet so i became bold.

the etsy shop is an extension of this .... and recently so is social media .... it is all a platform to reach others .... to share the art. the 'student' never wanting to stop growing (smile) ..... esp. with animals being the subject is a more specific audience .... my techniques tend to peak the interest of many .... but mo's art is about sharing me not meeting market needs ..... i hope by just strolling through the shop you feel a spark of creativity or inspiration. and if you are drawn in to the animal kingdom all the better.

oh and lower case ..... that is my attraction to an e e cummings poem back in fourth grade ..... my school was strict with writing until fifth grade and then they let us be us ...... my first creative expression. all the ' ......' just my fast thinking and switching gears too much to think about punctuation .... okay it's just how my crazy brain works ..... welcome to the world of mo !!!

have fun and enjoy !!!
