As Introductions go, this will be short and sweet and, in my case, a bit off-kilter. (I have gone more in depth in my 1st blog post titled “Introduction”.)
I’m in my 30s and I am a visual artist by formal study at a university (BA in Studio Art, cum laude; 2003, Claflin University) and also am an artist by nature (that it is a gift from God). I’m ever so grateful! It is a blessing to be able to participate in an institution/practice that is many, many years ooooooooooooold. I LOVE IT! Thank God. My main media are: graphite, charcoals, oil paint, digital photography and graphic design. I am also studied in screenprinting, sculpture and ceramics. (Edit as of Sept. 2016: I am currently FINALLY applying for scholarships so that I can get my Master’s degree in graphic design). If I did not involve myself in arts, I would be super-depressed. I would not kill anybody, though, as I do not like blood all over me. Especially someone else’s.
This blog is about ART! My art. What I go through in it and with it. It is about others’ art and my admiration or, dare I say, disdain for it. Disdain as in I do not like ALL art, so there may be a few posts about the bad side of it! I am realistic! I will include here writings, images & even video if I am so inclined. I will be…don’t worry. These posts will be serious for some of the time (because art is based on a high level of seriousness), but most of the time, there will still be humor woven in for an entertaining read (because art also has been known to have a hilarious side and I do not want my blog to seem like reading a DRY lecture…ugh). This blog will also feature posts that are related TO art with an underlying subject. Such as humorous posts or posts about makin that cash!
I am from Connecticut and live in Dixie, now. I have caramel skin & I am sarcastic (maybe you caught that). I added that for an extra mental visual of me. Even though now you probably think you just came across a dating site. I believe my site is much less creep-tastic than some of the characters on a dating site. Ha!
From caloniedoesart, I hope that you will gather a sense of enjoyment and even a newfound or enhanced appreciation of art and art-related concerns. Art is a gorgeous, meaningful, purposeful, useful gift from God. It also makes for tons of weird and eclectic conversations. HAVE FUN HERE and come back. Invite others, too! Thank you!!
