i’m jealous of hollie chastain

Sigh. More amazing mixed media. I’m always so impressed {ie. crushed by jealousy} when an artist can do something so simple, using only a few elements, and still make their work feel special/unique. Chattanooga based artist Hollie Chastain is one of those artists. Finding her was quite unique as well… I was writing another post when my browser window popped up with her work on it {via Papernstitch}. Seriously. I don’t know where or what I accidentally clicked on but I sure was happy when her work dropped in my lap. Thank you Art Gods. I owe you one.

    I know… makes you want to rush out to a used book store and rip the covers off doesn’t it?

    Thanks for introducing me to such a talented artist! I checked out her etsy and found an original that I had to have. Since I live in chattanooga too she agreed to meet me to handover the piece and I will say it’s beautiful in person! She even agreed to let me write about it: http://modernsauce.blogspot.com/2010/03/ms-note-no-artists-were-harmed-in.html

    Cool chick (with a good sense of humor) and great artist to support!

    Wow! That’s amazing. So jealous of you for buying an original… and in person no less! {good luck with the stalking, although i don’t think you need it!}
