One aspect of not only being an Art Historian, but also an Artist and appreciator of Art is the opportunity to continually discover new Artists.
I am constantly making suggestions to the Art students to look at this Artist or that Artist and they in turn open my eyes to Artists I am not familiar with.
While flipping through the Illustration Now: Volume 3 book one afternoon in the department, I was inspired to do a little online research on an Artist I had come across. Her name is, Catherine Campbell and her work is hauntingly beautiful, I fell in love with the girl and owl in the teacup. Her work is colourful and imaginative and I like her use of mixed media.
I endeavour to always make new discoveries and continue to explore, that is what life is about, just keeping yourself open to something new.
