The Jealous Curator launched in 2009, as a place for me to show artwork that “made me jealous”. Yes, I was jealous of other artists’ work, their lives, their success, their studios. I felt like I’d never have any of that – and I was right – because I wasn’t making art! I was stuck, and so busy comparing myself to everyone else that I didn’t even allow myself to be creative. It was awful. I started the blog to document the work I loved, but more importantly, I wanted to find a way to flip the jealousy into something positive – admiration and inspiration to be specific. It worked!

As I move forward with the site, I’ve realized that what I’m most interested in is, of course sharing/exposing the work of talented contemporary artists through my daily posts, but I’m also absolutely fascinated with the self-doubt part – the insecurities, inner-critics, creative blocks, and of course the jealousy that all of us have to deal with at some point. If we share openly about this, about the vulnerability that comes with being creative, all of us will benefit.

This lead to the idea behind my first book, titled “CREATIVE BLOCK, that was released by Chronicle Books in 2014, and then a more in-depth follow up book, titled “Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk”, which was released Fall 2016 – both as a hardcover and as an audio book. (I also did a TEDx talk on the subject, if you’d like to watch it.). In October of 2018, my latest book, “A BIG IMPORTANT ART BOOK – Now With Women” hit shelves worldwide, and a followup will be released Fall 2019 … stay tuned!

Want to know more in five minutes or less? Here’s a little peek into ‘The Jealous Curator’:



Danielle Krysa has a BFA in Visual Arts, and a post-grad in graphic design. She is the writer/curator behind the contemporary art site, The Jealous Curator (est.2009), and has curated art shows from Washington DC to Los Angeles, San Francisco to Toronto. Danielle creates her own artwork as well – mixed media collages which combine found images, paint, and as much humor as she can pack into each title. When she’s not in the studio, Danielle is writing books : “Creative Block”, “Collage”, and “Your Inner Critic Is A Big Jerk” were the first three, and her fourth book, “A Big Important Art Book – Now with Women”, was released in October of 2018. Danielle has also had the great pleasure of speaking at TEDx, PIXAR, Creative Mornings, CreativeLive, and was interviewed for several video segments on oprah.com.

The Jealous Curator has been featured by Oprah Magazine/oprah.com, Brain Pickings, Fast Company, Apartment Therapy, Sunset Magazine, Frankie Magazine, InsideOut Magazine, Flow Magazine, The Vancouver Sun, Glamour Paris, and more.

    I came across your blog last week. There is some great stuff on there. I thought I would pass a link on to my website. I am not so big on self promotion but I figured my work might fit with your style. Maybe not.

    The Crinoline Flowers are a pretty popular series.



  2. The Jealous Curator /// 05.12.2010 /// 8:21pm

    hi daryl,
    great work! i actually really love your ‘women’ series. keep your eye out for a post next week : )

  5. Elisabeth /// 06.14.2010 /// 2:36pm

    I am jealous of your blog and of your wonderful eye for art! I hope you don’t mind if I post about you on my blog about art and a lot of other stuff.

    And I know exactly what you mean about getting inspired and jealous at the same time. Ugh!


  6. The Jealous Curator /// 06.14.2010 /// 6:33pm

    Do I mind? Absolutely not… post away!
    Thanks so much for the sweet words Elisabeth : )

    Your blog has become a huge source of inspiration because you seem to find lots of work that makes me jealous too. 🙂

    I’m a photographer and I make altered books. I’ve had two bodies of work on the go for the last year.

  28. Oren /// 11.21.2010 /// 5:49am

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    I like your blog in a lot of ways, I really do. You have impeccable taste and your writing is erudite and charming, for the most part. And I understand the “jealous” thing for the hook that it is. But I have to be up-front with you, this is a break-up letter. I won’t be reading your blog anymore. It’s coming off my RSS feed. You see, jealousy is such a negative feeling. It’s such a heavily charged word, pregnant with both failure and an inability to come to terms with one’s own shortcomings. It’s also filled with the potentially evil desire to see the subjects of one’s envy fail as well. It’s a form of evil eye, really, and I’m disturbed by it. I understand that maybe you’re not literally jealous. But the word repeated over and over has become more burdensome every day. So this is goodbye. Thank you for all the colorful and well designed memories. I wish this could have ended differently between us.


  29. the jealous curator /// 11.21.2010 /// 8:28am

    Dear Oren,
    Well, I’m sorry to hear that. Clearly the jealousy that you’re talking about is a very different one than I’m referring to. I once heard someone say that if you keep your jealousy of things/people a secret it can become a toxic poison that eats you alive (which i totally agree with), but the moment you say it out loud it becomes admiration… so that’s why I’m saying it out loud. And honestly, this way of viewing it as been amazing for my own art work. Instead of seeing new work and wishing that my work looked like that, I can truly appreciate it, share it with all of you, and move forward with my own work knowing that every piece of art is different and “jealousy-worthy” to someone.
    Thanks for reading as long as you did. Sorry if the word is too much for you.
    The Jealous Curator
    ps. The jealousy thing isn’t an intended “hook”… it was really how I felt before I started the blog. My own work was being totally crippled and I was tired of it. I wanted to turn the jealousy on it’s head, and somehow make it work for me in a positive way… and now it does. Just wanted you, and anyone else that happens to be reading this, to know.

  30. Joey /// 11.24.2010 /// 11:09pm

    Great curating. I’m jealous of all the artists that have graced the pages of your blog. I’m bookmarking you and would be delighted if you took a moment to peruse my work for consideration. http://www.joeybates.com or http://www.flickr.com/photos/greenbeatle/
    Keep up the great work.

  31. the jealous curator /// 11.25.2010 /// 7:51am

    i’ll go and have a look at your site(s)
    thank you!

    I just stumbled upon your blog and have to say I’ve very impressed. Extremely well written. Hope you keep it going. Check out my work and let me know what you think.


  35. Marija /// 12.28.2010 /// 11:52am

    I love the fact that you are not an elitist type of curator and that fine art, design and crafts all come together here with the lines between them blurred. You see only art.

  36. the jealous curator /// 12.28.2010 /// 7:38pm

    thank you so much marija!
    that’s one of the nicest comments i’ve ever received – it totally made my day. xo

    this will work! thanks
    ps. there’s an email icon in the top right of my site … looks like a little envelope.

  41. Jessica /// 02.08.2011 /// 5:40am

    I completely agree with your 2011 note on jealousy. As an artist, your blog is very cathartic for me because I often look at other people’s work and feel inadequate about my own. But just voicing it really does transform my jealousy into admiration, not to mention inspiration and validation. Thank you for what you do here 🙂

  42. the jealous curator /// 02.08.2011 /// 8:19am

    thanks so much jessica… i really appreciate hearing that! i would never want anyone to come away from this place feeling anything but inspired.

    amazing place.
    I’ll back here.

  64. pierre botardo /// 04.12.2011 /// 7:50am


    I think your blog is very interesting. It definitely gives things a more personal feeling to each post you do. Being “jealous”. Haha…I’m always telling myself “I wish I thought of that” when I see art that moves me.

    Anyway, I figured I’d give your blog a shot as well. Take a look and let me know what you think. Thanks!



  65. Mark /// 04.14.2011 /// 1:57pm

    Hi, from West Wales U.K.
    I enjoyed your piece on Marla after just viewing ‘my kid could do that’ for the first time, It is a shame that they never got to the truth of the matter but either way, as long as the child’s right to be a child isn’t invaded again, then who really gives a damn.
    Thanks for an entertaining piece, and I hope you have a little time to view my meagre efforts.

    Many Thanks

  66. Mark /// 04.14.2011 /// 1:58pm

    oops sorry


    Other art and stuff
    I am also a member of an arts group we set up in Llandeilo called Frank Art.
    We are a group of like minded individuals that set a task every 2 weeks to produce a piece of art based on a theme set by each member in turn.

    I am jealous this is not my Blog! Congratulations for the fantastic work. It’s all very well thought and with a beautiful selection of projects.
    I will take my chances to submit a project I ‘ve just uploaded that I call ‘Superheroes’. It tries to establish a humorous conversation between ‘Superheroes’ of modern art & design, with Pop Superheroes like Superman and Lady Gaga. Would be delighted if you wanted to publish it: http://www.behance.net/gallery/SUPERHEROES/1278865

    Keep up the great work!

    I love your blog too 🙂 – I’ve had a quick goosey gander and feel amused and inspired all at the same time! I’m curious to know….where are you based?

    I’m a curator with budding plans to work with the Jealous Gallery very soon. I’ll drop you details of the show if cool? And I’ll revisit your blog again soon!

    Thanks for a refreshing 15 mins,

    Radiant Fields, featuring work by Benjamin Edmiston (Brooklyn), Edward Max Fendley (DC) Steven Riddle (Baltimore). Recently opened at NUDASAHNK in Baltimore, May 28th the show runs until June 25th. We all had a great time installing the exhibition and hanging out at the opining enjoying some ice cold Natty Boh. Please check out the opining and Installation photos over at the NUDASANK’S blog. Any support you have to offer would be much appreciated.

  84. Amy Wilson Faville /// 06.06.2011 /// 9:47pm

    Joining in late… I just saw this post now. The title of your blog, and the subheading, are the very reason I was drawn to it (as are many of my artist friends). I know that feeling so well: I love this– and I hate it that I didn’t think of it myself! Just want to say that I have that very feeling about your blog, and I give the url to my painting students. Yours is the art blog I check in with most frequently. Yes, I’m jealous– and proud of it!

  85. the jealous curator /// 06.06.2011 /// 10:35pm

    thank you amy. really. that means so much coming from you (because, as you know, your beautiful work makes me crazy jealous!)

  86. allison /// 06.10.2011 /// 8:37am

    Holy smokes, I am in love with your blog. I’ve been following it for nearly a year, and lately can’t wait to check it daily to see what amazing-ness you have discovered. As an art educator, it’s refreshing, and btw… the jealous word is perfectly fine for me. I am happy-jealous about lots of wonderful things. Thanks so much, and good luck with the art making!

  87. the jealous curator /// 06.10.2011 /// 1:32pm

    allison, i kid you not, that made my day… and probably my whole weekend! thank you so much for your sweet words! xo

    Hi! I absolutely love your site. I love it when I find new blogs that I can bookmark and check when I need inspiration (which is daily). It is awesome that you find art that you love, and are jealous of, and then share it with the world. I thought I would pass on my link in case you are interested.


  90. the jealous curator /// 06.20.2011 /// 4:18pm

    Hi TJC,

    I hope you don’t mind, but I posted about you in my blog http://sb-a.blogspot.com/ 🙂
    I just can’t get over how exactly you described that jealousy feeling of other people’s art/design – basing a blog on jealousy is a very interesting idea and I think it’s really working for you 🙂
    All the best,

  94. Naz /// 08.09.2011 /// 5:20am

    Love this blog. Love your taste. very inspiring. thank you.

  95. the jealous curator /// 08.09.2011 /// 6:55am

  98. Rob /// 08.13.2011 /// 5:18pm

    Thanks to you I’ve discovered the ceramic work of Michelle Summers which I now completely am inspired by (I skipped jealousy and went straight to the top!).

    It’s weird, being an artist and having to deal with all the ups and downs of personal creativity and then see so much great art (thank you internet!) and somehow keep leaping and swimming upstream (happily!). I wouldn’t have it any other way except with periodic retreats, hermitages and down time in the studio with no jealous curators serving up tasty dishes! 😉

  99. Lauri /// 08.18.2011 /// 4:44pm

    Wow! I’m jealous of you. I want to be you.
    Glad to have discovered your site. Thanks.

  101. harem6 /// 08.27.2011 /// 3:40am

    We’ve just discovered your blog… Wow ! It’s such a unique space filled with all sort of ” worlds ” that definitely make us think about that word ( jealous ) exactly the same way you do. It doesn’t make us fall and think about how small we are, but it gives us wings and makes us want to make more, knowing that it’s possible. Looking at all these artists, so different from one another, creates a powerful feeling that we’d never want to lose.
    Great job ! We’ll come back here.

  102. the jealous curator /// 08.27.2011 /// 6:38am

    thank you… really, thank you! i’m so glad you understand the “jealous” i’m talking about : )

  103. kim /// 08.31.2011 /// 10:06am

    i don’t know what’s taken me so long to get my butt over here– i adore your guest posts on sfgirlbybay.
    finally clicked through today- jeeesh i’ve been missing out! why i am i perpetually late to the party??
    thanks for the awesome.

    Your blog is so amazing. It’s always full of such a diverse and interesting assortment of great work. it really is a great surprise every post (and never a disappointment)

    We just launched a great project that you may like!

    i’m watching the reasons of your jealousy!


  107. Carmen /// 09.18.2011 /// 12:34pm

    So I just this very moment experienced the very feeling of total inspiration and and “crushing jealousy,” when I came across Takashi Iwasaki. Specifically the embroidery work.
    When I found this artist, I blurted out to my husband, “god I can only dream of being this good! It’s just mind boggling.”
    He said, “Well, I’m not the best at my job…”
    I said,”Well, I think it’s healthy[to be jealous].”
    Then I read your bit about the toxicity of jealousy. I couldn’t agree more that jealousy is dealt with best by letting it free and saying it out loud. That’s what being an artist is. At, least to me. Being true about all of your emotions, and letting them free. Even if it isn’t the most appealing thing to do. I thinking admitting jealousy is rather brave.
    I look at the work of Takashi Iwasaki, it makes my brain go nuts. This kind of jealousy makes me dream bigger than I could ever dream on my own. I love your blog for that very reason. I stop by everyday. It feeds me so much inspiration. Well, I could ramble on forever about how much this blog means to me…
    Really, I just want to say thank you for being jealous!

  108. the jealous curator /// 09.18.2011 /// 2:59pm

    wow carmen! thank you so much for your very kind words about the blog, and for so openly sharing your reaction to takashi’s work… funny enough i actually have a post about his work in my drafts folder ready to roll later this week! great minds think alike ; )

  109. the jealous curator /// 09.18.2011 /// 3:01pm

    ps. carmen… love your knit chain necklace! gorgeous work!!!

  110. tronganhgallery /// 09.19.2011 /// 12:16am

    we would like to promotion our artists to you!
    they are so young and love paint so much… Can you have a look at this site : tronganhgallery.webs.com / and tell me how about you feeling?
    thanks and best regards,

  111. the jealous curator /// 09.19.2011 /// 6:45am

    thanks! i’ll go check it out : )

  112. Carmen /// 09.19.2011 /// 8:38am

    I feel like such a sap! I got a little carried away with my post…*blush*
    I’m really excited to see the post for Takashi! I stopped by here to see if you had posted anything in the past, and got totally carried away. 🙂


    p.s. I’m so flattered that you like my necklace. Maybe I should make more…

  113. the jealous curator /// 09.19.2011 /// 10:01pm

    yes! you should!!

  114. John Westmark /// 09.21.2011 /// 10:22am

    Love your site! Thanks for the inspiration.

    thanks so much john!

  116. kmaniko /// 10.12.2011 /// 12:35pm

    Just came across your blog while doing a project for art class, and found it so interesting! I love that you take a negative emotion and turn it into admiration and positive advertising. It’s just great, because lots people (women especially) are plagued by jealousy in their everyday lives, with the media, and men telling us how to be/what to look like. I just wanted to share an artist with you: http://autumnskyemorrison.com/
    She’s really great, and thought you might appreciate her work.
    Thanks for blogging (:
    peace and love.

  117. the jealous curator /// 10.12.2011 /// 1:17pm

    Thank you so much! I really appreciate all of your sweet words : )
    Thanks for the link… so funny, my brother actually just sent me her portfolio a few weeks ago! Weird.

  118. Sheila /// 10.20.2011 /// 8:54pm

    I just stumbled upon a new artist and popped over to see if you’d featured her yet…and you haven’t! So check out http://www.kristiinalahde.com. What this woman does with found paper blows my mind. I have such a soft spot for art which uses found materials…I guess that’s why I’m drawn to quilting. 🙂

    Also, I just have to say…I’m jealous of The Jealous Curator. 😉 I stop by every day for a healthy dose of admiration and inspiration. Thanks so much for such a wonderful blog!

  119. the jealous curator /// 10.20.2011 /// 9:40pm

    wow! amazing work… thank you sheila!!! (and thank you for such lovely words about my blog… you made my day!)

  120. Ryan Phillips /// 10.28.2011 /// 9:02am

    Hi Danielle, just read about you in my favorite mag Sunset. Great blog, very inspiring indeed! Just thought I would you give you one more “jealousy” to share with your friends 😉 http://www.purephoto.com



  121. art chick /// 10.28.2011 /// 1:35pm

    I stumbledd on your site for the very first time and I can totally relate to what you mean!! Yes, so many artworks have caught my breath away and “wished” I could have or should have thought of that before.

    It’s not the true green monster jealousy, rather it’s more of an admiration…I love it when works of art makes my heart stop beating for a split second.

    Keep up the great work. Don’t pay any attention to “negative attitudes.” Life is too precious to deal with negativity.

  122. the jealous curator /// 10.28.2011 /// 3:10pm

    thanks nyla xo

    Just to show you my handmade collage, to see if you like them to be featured in your blog.

    How exciting to find your website. I saw your article in the November issue of “Sunset” magazine. My husband finally was able to pursue his dream after he retired from Disneyland about 5 years ago. We’ve run out of walls and now have an off-site storage to store all his originals (over 100). Have no idea how to reach art lovers and buyers. Hopefully, you’ll love his art as much as I do!

    I have seen the words “Jealous Curator” around the blogosphere, etc. for a while now, and I am DELIGHTED (and jealous) to finally have seen what you are doing here! I love your blog. I have some “computer time” scheduled today, so I am going to look at and read as much as a can.

    Even the comments list here is filled with wonderful links. It’s too much! I’m jealous! Can’t wait to pour over!

  151. Akua /// 01.25.2012 /// 8:43am

    Just found your blog, via Pinterest – thanks for sucking up hours of my time! Are you a Vancouverite like me? I’m sure you’re always on the prowl for new jealousy fodder, so thought I would post a link to see if you liked my stuff. I’m near enough to stalk!

  158. Jenn Woodward /// 02.18.2012 /// 11:52am

    Just discovered your blog and am so happy I did! You’ve revealed some great artists here & I’m excited to spend too much time looking through your posts. 😉

    Hi !

    Thank you for sharing your tastes, your website is the best place on the internet. I totally relate to your feelings. In art, jalousy is not a negative emotion, it’s only hidden admiration.

    Here’s a link I’d like to share with you : http://www.awful-drawings.com . It’s full of hilarious and insightful illustrations.

    Take care and keep up the good work.


  164. Carabella /// 02.28.2012 /// 10:27am

    Dear Jealous,

    When I found your blog, I spent a whole day absorbing it until there was no more to consume. You have great taste!

    I hope maybe my drawing are to your liking 🙂


    Thank you,

  175. Luna /// 04.03.2012 /// 7:24am

    I’ve learnt so much about the Arts from your blog than trying to catch up with magazines, newspapers and spreading the word. I understand ‘the jealous’ part completely.

  176. the jealous curator /// 04.03.2012 /// 8:36am

    thanks so much luna… what a lovely comment to start my day with! xo

  177. Louise /// 04.04.2012 /// 5:34pm

    I absolutely love your blog. I find the use of the word jealous interesting. English has always been a language that morphs and evolves and at the same time I admit to feeling a little differently about your choice of words. It is a fabulous choice in that it sparks interest and is the marketer’s prerogative to do so, however, I do feel that one of the strengths of the English language is that it offers such a rich choice of words to use to convey our meaning with stark clarity such that it seems a shame to try to say otherwise. Perhaps far better to understand that the juxtaposition of meaning is meant to startle and I am certainly thrilled to see your result.

    Ps. I looked up the definition again myself prior to writing this entry to confirm current usage, and when I look up the definition in the dictionary I don’t see your positive definition. I do see that the definition offered is a feeling of “resentment” or even ” anger” . Admiration is just that admiration.

  178. the jealous curator /// 04.04.2012 /// 6:20pm

    true enough louise… but when i started ‘the jealous curator’ back in 2009 i did have feelings of resentment and anger, so the name was pretty bang on. as the years have passed i’ve learned a life-changing lesson about morphing that jealousy into admiration (which feels amazing!)… but it’s a little late to change the name ; )

  179. Nivin /// 04.07.2012 /// 7:30am

    Hi! Thank you for an amazing blog, just absolutely love it! I follow you and girlbybay regularly and is always inspired by you.

  187. lama khatib daniel /// 05.06.2012 /// 7:33am

    hi there,
    I came across your blog when one of my facebook friend posted your link on her wall, and I’m hooked eversince!
    I’m an ex-advertising person as well, I’m a designer at heart and I do freelance now, logos, illustration and I paint and exhibit from time to time..
    I can say that I’m jealous (in a good way) of all your posts, you have a great taste in art. and I was wondering if you’d like to have a look at my work, and maybe feature me in your blog!
    here is the thing, I’d like to feature the sketches, they are my new babies that I’m so proud of them,
    “the sunny girls”
    this idea started as a doodle I did when I was on the phone with someone..a girl wearing big shades and lots of lines and flowers coming out of her head..
    then we traveled to Greece for summer and on one of the Greek islands I found lots of stones, and wherever I go I hear about artists who come here for summer, then when they see these lovely stones they draw on them, then they leave them behind when they travel back home..
    I did the same, I drew on the stones then I left some with friends we met there, and I brought some back home, but also, when I came back home, I have developed this girl, into drawings with pencil & ink on A3 papers, and I can see my self doing so much more on the concept..
    please view the artworks in this link
    what do you think?
    and if you want you can “like” my page in FB “lama khatib daniel’s art page”

  188. the jealous curator /// 05.06.2012 /// 8:30am

    hi lama – thank you so much for sending me your work! what a great idea (leaving drawings on stones). you’re sunny girls are lovely, but they’re not exactly my taste… but lovely none-the-less! have you reached out to any illustration blogs? they look very illustrative to me. good luck with your work!! : )

  189. fabiana trosman /// 05.06.2012 /// 5:04pm

  191. Yulia /// 05.09.2012 /// 7:40am

    hi jealous curator !

    I’ve stumbled upon your blog – and i love it! I know how you feel – I’m an artist myself (digital illustration, graphic design & of course painting), when i see a nice piece of art I usually think “I can do better than that” or “this doodle costs how much???!!” – but you know, it’s the idea that counts, and whoever thought of it first – wins.

    oh, and I loove Andy Warhol 🙂

    You might find some interesting art/ideas from my pinterest board http://pinterest.com/giraffesnstuff/art/

    and i’m sure you’d enjoy this book

    …and if you’re still not tired reading my comment:



  192. Artollo /// 05.13.2012 /// 2:35pm

    Hello Jealous Curator,
    I’ve been browsing thru your blog for about an hour now and I enjoyed the artwork here! My name is Juri Romanov and I am an artist too, and I was wondering if you can take a look at my work.
    I specify in abstract art and kids art and it will be an honor If I have some of my artwork in your blog.
    Thank you,

  193. Lisa Zador /// 05.14.2012 /// 2:00pm

    I think the word jealous is absolutely perfect and not negative in the least. I guess not everyone has a sense of humor.

  194. Saylor /// 05.21.2012 /// 4:39pm

    Hello Curator,

    I admire the aesthetic quality of your blog… you have a innate ability to find interesting and completing work. I have discovered and shared many new artists with friends, colleagues, and students from visiting your blog. Thanks.

  200. the jealous curator /// 06.01.2012 /// 10:31am

    thank you so much michael! : )

  201. Diane /// 06.05.2012 /// 9:46pm

    Hi there! I’ve been following your blog for a while now, and recently I just got a job at an art gallery-cum-retail space, and I was just wondering if you would be ‘jealous’ of the artist’s work 🙂


  202. the jealous curator /// 06.06.2012 /// 6:23am

    congratulations diane! and thanks for the link… i’ll go have a look : )

  203. Tom /// 06.06.2012 /// 6:30am

    I’m hooked on Jealous.

    I came across your blog a month ago, and love pretty much everything you post! You’ve got a great thing going here. Not only are the works you display inspirational, but YOU are inspiring, and I really dig that.
    I’m a design professional myself with a love for painting & collage. I’ve got works you might like, but this is not a plug for myself; I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your site.
    Gotta admit, there is one thing I am jealous of: your Girl Crush Tea Parties. What? No Guy Crush Tea Parties? (Ok, that does sound weird.) But seriously, is there any chance males can join the club? If no, you won’t hurt my feelings. I understand the bond and connections girls share when they gather and converse. I just wish you offered a coed event too. I mean, who doesn’t like cupcakes?

  204. the jealous curator /// 06.06.2012 /// 6:39am

    ha! that’s a really good idea tom! it kinda just morphed into “girl” crush because so many of my readers are women… they were the ones commenting when I first brought this up way back when. BUT you’re right, the boys are allowed to come too! so far it’s all women that have signed up, and i’ve been a bit curious to see what the dynamic would be if there were a few guys in the mix. everything is full for 2012, but i’ll make a point of doing a few “co-ed” tea parties in 2013 … deal? ; )

  205. dsinla /// 06.08.2012 /// 3:06pm

    love your site and thought you might like to share this with your readers:
    I just read this :
    Metro Art is announcing new opportunities for artists as part of Phase 2 of the Metro Expo Line.(in Los Angeles)


  206. Fiona /// 06.13.2012 /// 4:51am

    Just stumbled upon your blog. It’s awesome. And I thought that jealousy was just me, so relieving to see so many people living in such jealous admiration;-) I not only suffer from a similar pang of (jealous) feeling when I see art works, but the problem where I’ll have an idea, and think about it for so long and so deep that the work is often finished before I even begin… I might just live vicariously through others’ work! Lol.

  207. the jealous curator /// 06.13.2012 /// 6:32am

    i have that same problem! i ended up forcing myself to do a ‘painting per week’ project for 12 weeks – it really helped! i got a bunch of little 4″ x 4″ canvases and before the week was out, a painting (or collage, or drawing) had to be finished. try it! (and let me know how it goes!)

  208. Fiona /// 06.16.2012 /// 1:56am

    That’s a great idea! I’ll give it a go and get back to you! (stressed out-the pressure is on! Lol;-)

  209. the jealous curator /// 06.16.2012 /// 7:24am

    ha! go for it! and if they’re bad that’s ok… lots of mine were bad, but a couple of them were surprisingly good. they were great idea starters for bigger pieces that i really like. go for it… embrace the suckage! ; )

  210. Alisha Erin /// 06.16.2012 /// 7:31pm

    I’m hoping to go to grad school soon and coming to your blog always gives me that little bit of extra fuel I need to hit the studio after those long days at work. I totallyyyy understand that mix of deep respect, surprise, and jealousy It can be so inspiring, though! Luckily, most of the people I’m “jealous” of are my best buddies and it’s just another way they motivate me to be better.

  211. the jealous curator /// 06.16.2012 /// 7:52pm

    that’s the best kind of jealousy… the kind that motivates you, and gets you excited to be in the studio! good luck with grad school : )

  212. jim bachor /// 06.26.2012 /// 6:39pm

    wow – if i can swear – holy fuck, you have quite an eye – beautiful stuff, over and over again. i’m jealous and a bit depressed. keep up the great work. sigh…

  213. the jealous curator /// 06.26.2012 /// 7:19pm

    ha! thank you … but don’t be depressed! i wish i made mosaics like you!

  214. Nicole /// 07.05.2012 /// 9:42am

    Hello Jealous Curator!

    I just recently found your blog and I love it!

    I am a recent grad too and I am trying a ‘photo per week’ over the summer to help motivate myself for a new show I am working on.

    If you have the chance take a look at http://www.elisewindsor.com

    all best,

  220. the jealous curator /// 07.16.2012 /// 8:13am

    ooh, i love one-a-day projects!!! they’re perfect for getting those creative juices flowing… and your work is fantastic! thanks for the link elise : )

  221. M. Sharon Baker /// 08.06.2012 /// 4:36pm

    Hello again.

    I’m extremely jealous of Sue Benner’s nests and thought you might want to take a peak.

    I’d love to buy prints of her quilts or even postcards….


  222. Dana /// 08.09.2012 /// 11:46am

    Curious – how do you find all of the wonderful artists that you post about? im a recent art grad – and honestly, i havent been excited about art in a long time – not until i found this blog.

    thanks for that!

  223. the jealous curator /// 08.09.2012 /// 11:48am

    thanks so much dana – that’s an amazing compliment! i find the artists online, via shows i go to, and honestly… a whole bunch of submissions show up in my inbox every day. i’m really lucky : )

  224. Lorette C. Luzajic /// 08.10.2012 /// 10:49am

    I absolutely love this blog. You have helped me discover new ways of seeing and such a range of creativity!

    I invite you to look at my art and photography in hopes that you may wish to showcase my work. I primarily explore visual art with my camera and through mixed media collage paintings.

    This link is to my Flickr “Greatest Hits” page.


    My work has been featured in Life Imitating Art Magazine, CrossCurrents Magazine, the Toronto Quarterly, Syncopated Chaos, Sublime Rush, Art Nectar, Touched By Fire, and more. I have recently exhibited at the Pilot Gallery in Toronto, the Toronto Public Library, and the Royal Ontario Museum.

    My creative statement as an artist and writer is as follows:

    “Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery—celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: ‘It’s not where you take things from—it’s where you take them to.’”-Jim Jarmusch

    Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you soon. If you require any further information, do not hesitate to ask. You may enjoy the information about my books and my visual artwork on my website, http://www.ideafountain.ca.

    Hi! I posted here about a month ago (I was the jaded art grad). Instead of lamenting the state of art though, I decided to make a blog (yes, I had some inspiration).

    Would love if you had the time to check it out –


    Thanks so much!

  245. the jealous curator /// 09.09.2012 /// 9:49am

    Hi Jealous Curator,

    I love your blog!

    I am the art director at Studio By The Tracks, a non-profit in Birmingham, AL where we teach art to students who are primarily autistic. From looking over your blog, I think you might find our student work interesting. I hope you will check out our website or *friend* us on the Facebook. 🙂

  248. Erin /// 09.20.2012 /// 8:04am

    Just came across your blog a few weeks ago and absolutely love it. As an artist I totally understand the “jealousy” you feel when viewing other artists’ works. As a registrar and curator I also see and appreciate how you present and curate the jealousy. Good job, am now following on twitter and put your blog in my reader!

  249. the jealous curator /// 09.20.2012 /// 1:25pm

    thanks so much erin! : )

  250. Faustine /// 09.20.2012 /// 7:54pm

  251. Aga /// 09.24.2012 /// 7:12am

    Dear Jealous Curator,
    you are fabulous curator with very strong style and idea of things you like!
    Maybe when you have free minutes you can tell me your opinion about my work.


    I will appreciate it a lot!
    Thank you

  252. Trish (aka littlebrownwren) /// 09.26.2012 /// 12:13pm

    Have enjoyed browsing your finds & love being led to artists who are new to me!

    With that being said, I ran across some work that fascinated me to the point that I spent over an hour going through her Flickr photostream. The artist’s name is Fiona Watson, & she has two Flickr accounts – the one that immediately drew me in is under the name “fiona watson art”, link here ~ http://www.flickr.com/photos/fiona-watson-art/
    Her main account is under the name “wildgoosechase”, link here ~ http://www.flickr.com/photos/wildgoosechase/

    I think you’ll like her work as much as I did 😉 Or maybe you’re already aware of it, but I didn’t find Ms. Watson on a search of this site.

    And thanks for introducing me to so many artists I never would’ve found on my own! Keep all the good stuff coming.

    Trish W.

  253. the jealous curator /// 09.26.2012 /// 3:26pm

    thanks so much for your sweet words and the links! i’m going to check them out right now : )

  254. Petra /// 09.27.2012 /// 12:24pm

    I landed on your blog via Pinterest (Photo with work by Sarah Gee). Love your original tone of voice in the way you present yourself as a curator: a jealous one. 🙂

    Wonder if this might do the trick: http://www.hansup.be

    Thanks for all you do with your blog – I love seeing the work of the artists you feature and enjoy your writing. I’ve found loads of inspiration from your blog.

    I’d also like to share my work with you; I work mainly in photography and mixed media. I love abstraction … and find truly abstract photography challenging and rewarding.

    I invite you to visit http://www.NatCoalson.com and would love you hear your thoughts, especially with regard to my abstract work.


  275. the jealous curator /// 12.07.2012 /// 8:17am

  276. Charles /// 12.10.2012 /// 4:40am


    Really love the blog and the idea of it,
    and I am definitely familiar with that inspiring yet pretty painful jealousy you are talking about!

    We are a french collective called A.S.A.P! using pretty much every media we can to do what we do, and I hope you’ll enjoy!


  277. jimmy /// 12.12.2012 /// 12:55pm

    Hi! I love your blog so much!

    My collaborator Adi and I have been working on a series of motivational PSAs that I think would be rad for the jealous curator and all its readers. We just released the third PSA, Be Cool, this week. But also make sure to check out the first two, Darkness and Loops.


    JIMMYnADI are a creative duo living, dreaming and hustling in Los Angeles. These Motivational Public Service Announcements are made for creative minded people to help keep everyone motivated to keep going, have a clear mind, and to constantly do your best.

    We hope you love them.

    You feature such amazing artists and it’s all so very inspiring!
    Keep up the good work – I really, really enjoy your little corner of the internet!

    hello jealous curator

    a perfect name for your blog. and amazing stuff you post. found you via boooooooom (not sure about the number of o’s in there). been hooked ever since.

    here’s a link to one of the projects i’ve been working on the side – http://juvenilebuttrockets.tumblr.com/

    do check it out please. and let me know what you think.


  281. Katie /// 12.27.2012 /// 5:43am

    As a fellow designer, I COMPLETELY relate to that feeling… there is no other way to describe it; it is both soul-crushing and inspirational. You’ve nailed it, and that is why I love your blog!

  282. the jealous curator /// 12.27.2012 /// 12:33pm

    thanks katie : )

  283. Ally Burguieres /// 12.27.2012 /// 3:12pm

    Hi JC!!

    I just discovered your blog and am HOOKED. I also noticed others have been posting links to work they think might entice your eye and satisfy your readers! I’d love to know your thoughts on my Notebook Series. They are large-scale canvases (some as tall as 6 feet) that I paint to look like sketches on looseleaf paper. I show my work here in New Orleans and always have people say, “I wish I had thought of that!!” It’s such a simple concept, and I did not anticipate the universal appeal and effect the paintings evoke from visitors to my shop. I’m thrilled that it inspires a sense of nostalgia and recognition in people of all backgrounds and ages. Please see examples at the link:


    Thanks so much!!! I also invented the Wish Dog (www.WishDogandFriends.com). Funny little critters that blow smoke from their mouths while manifesting your wishes.

    Thank you for all the work you do to inspire, enrich, and curate!!

    Love xoxo

  284. Aubrey Laret /// 12.29.2012 /// 10:21am

    Hi there Jealous Curator,

    Like you I have spent my professional life in commercial design as an Art Director and latterly as a Creative Director. Over the last few years I have been producing my own images.

    My work loosely splits in to two streams. Digitally created work and Photography (not always created with a camera and found here http://cargocollective.com/aubreylaret ).

    Your blog is fascinating and a regular stop off point for me on my art travels around the web.

    Thank you

    Hi Jealous Curator,

    I absolutely love your blog! It is so inspiring, and indeed constantly makes me wish I had thought of stuff first:) If you have a moment, please check out my website to see the series I just completed–they seem right up your alley. They’re 6 graphite portraits with embroidery inspired by vintage photos of my female relatives (they are on the ‘current works’ page of the site). Thanks again for the incredible blog!

    Jealousy is a negative emotion? It is also negative to comment negatively on the internet. Your site is great! And I too feel that same “negative emotion” when I see work I love. “Why is that not in my head?” & ” I need to work more” Have a great day, so glad I happened upon you site!

  292. Mel /// 01.07.2013 /// 8:52am

    Hi J-C!

    I have a friend who has talked about “Angry Artist Syndrome”, which is essentially the same thing as being a “jealous curator”. I’ve never described my feelings as such; perhaps my enthusiasm for all of the amazing art out there crushes any jealousy or anger I may have for not thinking of it first. There is ALWAYS the inspiration that comes from seeing all of this incredible art, and it has made me a better artist. Who knows – maybe someday someone will be “jealous” of my artwork! 😀

    Thanks so much for showcasing all of this incredible talent for us! And about your amazing blog – I wish I had thought of it first. 😉

  293. the jealous curator /// 01.07.2013 /// 8:56am

    thanks mel! when i started 4 years ago, i really was jealous (not in an angry way, more in a sad way). now however, i’ve learned that there truly is a place for anyone that wants to make art. yes, you’ll come across work that you wish you did… but now that’s fuel to get back into the studio!! : )

  294. chrysa koukoura /// 01.07.2013 /// 9:48am

    i love your blog. its awesome. one of my first stops for inspiration.

    I come to your site often and this last time I was searching for Mary Jane Ansell’s work. Nothing came up so I wasn’t sure if you’ve seen her portraits. Super gorgeous and realistic with kind of a dark moody feeling about them.

    If you are interested in letterpress, I’d love it if you took a look at my work…

    Congratulations on so many years with this blog! I wish I had known about your blog when I was still at school…it would have helped with all the raging jealousy and those moments when I lacked any bit of inspiration.

    Admittedly, I’m still a jealous artist but I’m a happier one too now that I found my little illustration niche. But there’s always room for more jealously of all the amazing artists you post here!

    (probably not the art you normally like but I wanted to share anyways: http://www.sketchynotions.com)

    Dear Jealous Curator,
    Thank you for providing your readers with thoughtful posts that keep us all informed about the work others are making. Your blog introduces me to “hidden gems” one at a time. The recent Richard Vergez post was outstanding.

    I’m excited to share my recent work with you, so when you have a chance, please check out my website. Also, I’m part of a curatorial collaboration in Kansas City, MO called Plug Projects that I think might interest you. Thank you…Caleb

    Your blog is fantastic! I stumbled upon it through Emily Henderson (who I love) and I am so happy to find you! I definitely understand the jealous/love while browsing the artists you have featured. It’s seeing other’s amazing work that pushes me in new directions. I will be a daily reader! Also super interested in The Fig House! I lived in Los Feliz for 5 years and would love to contribute to this amazing project! Find my work on Etsy here…
    and here’s ma blog too;) http://www.marygasparart.com
    Thank you and have a brilliant weekend!

    I’m so happy I came upon this blog! I love your concept and am excited to follow you. You are so approachable and I love that in a person 🙂
    A friend sent me a link to the Emily Henderson Blog about The Fig House. I think every artist dreams of having a 10,000 sq. ft space to fill with art. What fun!!!
    I would love to share my work with you. It is a process I having been developing over the last three years. I am able to do this process on any photo of any size. The Africa Series will be featured soon by Bono’s organization ONE! I am proud of the work and I hope you enjoy.
    Blessings to you in all you do and have a great evening!

  337. Jeff Claassen /// 05.01.2013 /// 9:16am

    I just discovered your site through booooooom.com and think it’s brilliant! You’ve obviously struck a chord with the “jealous” thing. As soon as I read the tagline in your banner I was like, “I’M NOT ALONE.” At one time I “retired” from painting for about six months after seeing the work of an artist who’s work I thought was amazing. The thought process was, “If this guy is making stuff like this why should I even bother.” Luckily, the “retirement” ended when I realized I had to draw/paint to survive. After doing it for so long it had become a necessity, like breathing. Cheesy, I know, but it’s true. That was years ago and now I’ve been living off my art since 2004. Anyway…
    I wanted to tell you about a project I just launched on Kickstarter. It’s called “The Puzzle Painting” and came about as a response to living off the sales of art to survive. I love painting BIG things, but they are sometimes difficult to sell, so I’ve been painting a lot of smaller pieces for the last couple of years. This “Puzzle Painting” idea fulfills my selfish need/desire to paint BIG, but keeping the work accessible by selling pieces of it. If you have a minute please take a look at it:

    Thanks for your time and the awesome blog!
    – Jeff

  338. the jealous curator /// 05.01.2013 /// 12:09pm

  350. ABSTRACTUS /// 05.13.2013 /// 2:34pm

    Hello Danielle
    I am Ximena Steevens, and with Mauricio Velez are the artist duet known as Abstractus since 2002, when we decided to condense all of our material and conceptual experimentation and research (personal and aesthetic) within a concept, to reflect the truth in ways that help to find freedom from the turbulent world around us. Ours, has been an evolutionary process of shared exploration throughout Europe, North and Latin America.

    Our work draws from the use of collective thoughts and interpretations from life’s distinctive array of facets, comprised by emotional crossing motivated by our relationship and distinct aesthetic experiences. (We are husband and wife since 2000).

    For us art is more than a form of intellectual entertainment represented in a desired object, but the most advanced form of language that invites our reason and instinct to become a substance that fills the void of a clear reality that is asphyxiating us but we avoid to observe.

    “Present human existence as a paradoxical fact is the core of Abstractus work. Trough art, we question the alienation that we all love so much, while unsustainable future is under construction by careless insiders in this impassive chaos.”

    Abstractus’ work raises the possibility of an isolated reality in the paradox of objects and the mental properties of subjects that are limited by their own truth full of trickery. Our work is an existential ratification, a palpable object filled with texture, form and color, to be placed explicitly face to face with humanity and its immediate surroundings.

    We make use of all types of combinations, mixed techniques, installations and photographs to confront the spectator with a puzzle with each one of our art pieces. Our own mixed technique is based on the combination of materials, photography, photo installation and image manipulation, and right is the mature result of more than ten years of shared study and exploration. Nowadays we can affirm that there are lots of Abstractus’ pieces in many different places in the world, and our CV includes more than 30 exhibitions in New York, Chicago, Montreal, Brussels, and Amsterdam among others.

    I’d like to invite you to visit ABSTRACTUS collective website and/or Facebook page.
    Hope you find Abstractus’ art interesting.



    Looking forward hearing from you,

    Best Regards

    Ximena Steevens

    ABSTRACTUS (Steevens & Velez)

    Hi Danielle,
    I wanted to thank you for what is really a fantastic repository of contemporary artwork. You featured my friend Jillian (Ludwig) Dickson’s fantastic work a little while back (she has gorgeous new drawings!) and I am in the process of contacting one of the commenters above about a possible curatorial project, so you also help to keep artists abreast and in touch with one another.

    I would like to share my own work with you. The most recent work is in the top three albums.

    Thanks so much and congrats on your forthcoming books!

    Hello. I love your blog and use it regularly in teaching the concept of a consistent body of work to my high school AP Studio Art class. The last time I showed the site to them, my students asked if I’d ever been featured. I said no. They said why. I said there are millions artists out there. They said, it’s a blog, just submit your stuff. I said, can I do that? They said, duh. So, here goes nothing. Thanks.

    I really love the work you post about. The sensibilities of each artist is really refined without being stuffy. I wondered if you had any interest in posting about my work. http://www.alyssadennis.com
    Hope to hear from you and will look forward to reading and looking more.
    All the best,

    I just discovered your website through Emily Henderson’s blog! Love, love, love it! It’s going to take awhile to get through all of your posts!

    I have a recommendation for you: my friend Jaime Rovenstine’s work is beautiful. Check it out at jaimerovenstine.com.

    Looking forward to more posts!

  386. William Lee /// 07.16.2013 /// 6:26am

    Thank you so much for creating such an inspiring blog, it really help me get though my degree and im please to say i have now graduated! hooray!

    You might be interested in my work? maybe not?

    but i’d love it if you could have a look if your not to busy?


    My two graduate projects are –
    Eco Systems – Developing a tile systems that works of living wall systems to controls and restricts plant growth to create pattern.

    Seeded Concrete – A NEW material I developed in my second year at university, a developed concrete that can actually support plant life. You can cast objects like normal concrete and once watered, imbedded seeds are able to grow. Also 100%biodegradable.

    I know you love new design concepts. So if you write a post i would be over the moon. but if not i hope you enjoy.

    Many thanks,
    William Lee ‘the surface designer’

    This is an amazing site! So much talent, so little time! I could hang out on this site for hours!

    I have a salvaged surfboard sculpture series “Ocean Arrowhead.” Please feel free to visit my page if you have a moment: http://www.facebook.com/OceanArrowhead

    Am I worthy?

    Thank you,

  389. Chris Fitzgerald /// 07.29.2013 /// 4:13pm

    45 minutes has gone by since I landed here through Artstomer. Really great collection, and indeed, jealousy inducing.
    Wanted to pass along a link to the Flat World series of photos.


    Thanks for looking and excited to keep up with your curating.

  390. the jealous curator /// 07.29.2013 /// 5:30pm

    thanks chris! heading over to your site right now ; )

  391. Als /// 08.07.2013 /// 3:04pm

    Another recommendation! I was looking at Richard Renaldi’s website as I love the concept and photography of his Touching Strangers project. And then I saw his Elderly Gay & Lesbian archive project and my jealousy really kicked in – it is so beautifully done. Here’s the link, I hope you enjoy them too! http://www.renaldi.com/archive/#num=content-658&id=album-20

    You have made a wonderful blog. I love dipping in to it as I’m not in the art world and its a moreish place to visit that always feels like just what I was needing. Thank you!

  392. Markus F. Staab /// 08.13.2013 /// 9:18am

    Hi there jealous curater,

    I would like to send you a press release about a beautiful project I just did.
    all the best from Germany, Markus

  393. the jealous curator /// 08.13.2013 /// 9:23am

    ok! send it to contact@thejealouscurator.com : )

    Thank you so much and best to you,

  396. Kim johnson /// 08.26.2013 /// 6:41pm

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    I just found your website and I must say it is pretty spectacular. I feel the same way as you do. Being an artist myself, I am always thinking, “why didn’t I think of that”! I love so many different forms of art and your curated collections are wonderful. When will you be in TN next? I just moved to the state and would love to see one of your shows or talks.

    Kim Johnson

  397. the jealous curator /// 08.26.2013 /// 8:49pm

    oh thanks so much kim! no plans for TN at the moment, but i loved chattanooga so hopefully i’ll be back someday! enjoy your new home : )

  398. elizabeth /// 09.04.2013 /// 9:56pm

    i love this blog! i can relate to this so well. i am painter who gets inspired | jealous when i see beautiful work.

    i have an undergrad degree in fine arts and a grad degree in digital art | design. even though i work in a creative field, there is nothing like painting and drawing for yourself and no one else.

    thank you for this blog!!

  399. the jealous curator /// 09.04.2013 /// 10:07pm

    thank YOU elizabeth : )

  400. Shari Weschler Rubeck /// 09.05.2013 /// 1:56pm

  402. Mandy /// 09.06.2013 /// 11:07am

    Hi hi 😀

    I saw that you curated this month’s artworks over at Darger HQ!
    Thank you soooooooo so much for letting me discover all these new artists.

    My faves were absolutely “Pink Favorite” by Launa Bacon & “Candy Blot Test #1” by Thomas C. Chung!!! 🙂

    Love love,

    – Mandy.

  403. tigrazza /// 09.07.2013 /// 4:50am

    Hi there, me again!
    Did you already see these supercute works?


    If not, I think you’ll love them :>
    Thank you, have a good day!

  404. the jealous curator /// 09.07.2013 /// 6:06am

    yes i did… very sweet!

  405. Robert /// 09.16.2013 /// 2:34am

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    we (theCORNER magazine) love your inspiring work and would like to show you our work too. We have made it two our second Issue of our Magazine and have a lot of great written stuff.


    May we can work together in some point, that would be wonderfull for our really young online art-magazine.


  406. the jealous curator /// 09.16.2013 /// 7:13am

    thanks robert – i’ll check it out! congratulations on issue 2

  407. Thomas /// 09.16.2013 /// 4:14am

    You should really check out my friend Sunny’s “Unwoven Light” installations. If you ever met her you’d quickly see why her name is Sunny– warm and inviting …just like her art. 🙂

    Def check out the video!:

  408. the jealous curator /// 09.16.2013 /// 7:09am

    YES!! i’ve seen her work – so beautiful! the only reason i haven’t written about it, is that everyone else just wrote about it! : ) she’s bookmarked though and i’ll totally show her work over here too : )

  409. Unnur Yrr Helgadottir /// 09.18.2013 /// 5:34am

    Hi!!! I love your blog and follow it almost religiously. It´s so fun to discover people out there that have a great eye for art. Thanks for all the inspiration 🙂

    Since I´m at it just though I´de send you my “info” to look at if you ever get bored. Icelandic/Swedish art…..;) Taking my first big steps from being a graphic designer to entering the “Art” world.


    Best Regards!

  410. the jealous curator /// 09.18.2013 /// 6:34am

    thanks unnur – i’ll go check it out right now : )

  411. Lyle /// 09.19.2013 /// 11:13am

    Howdy. I found your blog by accident, I like it. Heres my art if you feel like taking a look. Thanks, L. http://www.lyleschultzart.com

  412. the jealous curator /// 09.19.2013 /// 1:10pm

    cool – thanks lyle! : )

  413. Jen /// 09.21.2013 /// 12:40pm

    Love your blog! Been following it for over a year and keep on recommending it to all my artist friends.
    If you get a chance to check out my website Omaitz.com, like to know if you would be interested in writing about the work. My installations do not get featured on blogs– it would be an honor! Keep up the awesome curating!

    Best Regards,


  414. the jealous curator /// 09.22.2013 /// 9:00am

    oh thanks so much jen! i have your paintings bookmarked already (they’re fantastic!), and your installations are gorgeous too… i think the reason your installations haven’t been featured on blogs is just the documentation. can you get someone to take more photos of them? you can tell they’re amazing, but if the photos were cleaner/crisper they’d be super easy to feature! : )

  415. Missy Dahl /// 09.25.2013 /// 9:09am

    Hello! Your eye is amazing, I have taken so much inspiration from so many of your artist choices! I would looooove if you would be willing to look at my work. I have an illustration shop at etsy,com/shop/dahlmissy and a fine art website at missydahl.com

    Thank you sooooo much for being here and posting so often!

  416. the jealous curator /// 09.25.2013 /// 9:59am

    lovely! thanks so much for the links … BOOKMARKED! 🙂

  417. Ashley Jackson /// 09.25.2013 /// 5:58pm

    Hello, hello!

    My dear friend, Mary Gaspar, told me about your site in regards to my own creative flow…..she thought you’d enjoy taking a look at my hand-embroidery work that I first learned 4 years ago and enjoy making my own patterns.
    Very basic as of yet, and I am starting to incorporate more fabrics and ink into the ideas…..

    All the best to you! LOVE your site!
    Thank you for promoting all the amazing work that is out in this world.


  418. the jealous curator /// 09.25.2013 /// 8:03pm

    oh mary is so sweet! such an amazing supporter of this blog (which i super duper appreciate!). speaking of sweet, your work is so cute! love that little sheriff badge 🙂

  420. Shari Weschler Rubeck /// 10.01.2013 /// 6:39am

    Hi again!

    Still loving your site, posts & mission! After reading thru many of these fun interactions, I realized that I had not invited you to view my work. Another very amazing site that I have recently become involved with is Artistic Moods. You would love – if not already in love. 🙂 Anyway, I would be honored to have you visit my world.



    Have a TREMENDOUS day!!


  421. the jealous curator /// 10.01.2013 /// 8:59am

    cool! thanks shari – i’ll go check it out : ) you have a TREMENDOUS day too!

  422. Thomas /// 10.02.2013 /// 3:50am


    Nice site… you have a great eye! I would love to know your opinion of what I think is the best work of my life… (my work is in major museums worldwide) If you have 5 minutes the video does a pretty good job of describing and getting you close enough to see the work. (large scale photographic abstractions on the Infinite).

    See very poetic gallery video here:



    Thomas Brummett


    Press Release:

    Thomas Brummett / Recent Photographs
    Of Earth and Heaven: Selections from the Series Infinities

    September 21st to October 26th 2013
    Reception for the artist September 21st 3pm to 6pm

    Schmidt/Dean Gallery
    1719 Chestnut Street, 4th Floor
    Philadelphia, PA 19103

    See the video of the exhibition with interviews here http://youtu.be/Khx2ItTwaTA ( this is a great poetic work in itself…)

    Installation shots here:

    Thomas Brummett is exhibiting “Of Earth and Heaven, Selections from the Series “Infinities” at the Schmidt Dean Gallery in Philadelphia.
    These complex and layered photographs combine stars, snow, mold grown in the studio, magnolia blossoms, and custom “light projections”
    that manipulate circles of confusion to render images made from of the cosmos and earth. Known for his painterly photographic depictions of nature, Tom is becoming decidedly more abstract with this impressive new body of work.

  423. Joey Salamon /// 10.02.2013 /// 1:00pm

    I stumbled upon your blog around a month ago and it quickly became one that I check quite frequently. I just relaunched my website a few days ago with a bunch of revamped images and if you have time I’d love for you to check them out to see if they could be featured.

    Keep posting and keep inspiring! 🙂



  424. the jealous curator /// 10.02.2013 /// 1:10pm

    cool! thanks joey : ) on my way to check it out!

  427. Brian /// 10.10.2013 /// 11:35am


    You HAVE to check this artist out. I just came across her and thought of your blog immediately. She does meticuloulsy embroidered leaves. Simply unbelievbly awesome. (I don’t know her, so I’m not just promoting a friend.)

  428. the jealous curator /// 10.10.2013 /// 12:18pm

  434. Sofia Borges /// 10.15.2013 /// 10:16pm

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    I just love your eye. This is a project we are working on with Nick Cave that might make you jealous 🙂


    The more exposure we can get the more likely we can make it happen.

    Thanks for all your do,

  435. Night Diver Press /// 10.22.2013 /// 12:12pm

    Hey Jealous Curator. I’m Pete. My partner, Lena, and I have a print/illustration team in SF called Night Diver Press. Just the two of us. We make screen prints and t-shirts but we really specialize in small editions of books. We’re almost finished with a series of 5 called Heavens + Humans. Lena does the illustrations then I screen print and bind them. All by hand.

    Anyway we’ve made a small prototype edition and just started a Kickstarter Campaign to fund making a complete edition of 25 sets. If you’re interested we’d like to know if/how you could help us promote it and what you’d need from us.

    Thanks so much for your time and please let us know your thoughts.



  436. the jealous curator /// 10.22.2013 /// 3:30pm

    oh! i’ll go have a look – thanks so much for the head’s up, and congrats on your project!

  437. Madiha /// 10.23.2013 /// 2:58pm

    Your blog is awesome! I saw it mentioned somewhere and I couldn’t help but go through most of your installation posts. If you have some time you should check out my work. http://www.madihasiraj.com. Thanks for your time and keep on posting!

  438. frances /// 10.23.2013 /// 3:48pm

    posted two new series to whereisfrances.com…..if you have a moment please have a look.

  439. the jealous curator /// 10.23.2013 /// 6:23pm

    thanks frances! these are great! still in my drafts folder!!! sorry – it’s been a crazy week or two around here : )

  440. frances /// 10.25.2013 /// 6:03am

  441. the jealous curator /// 10.25.2013 /// 6:40am

    yay! thanks!

  442. Mara Magyarosi /// 10.27.2013 /// 6:01pm


    I’m an artist, photographer, and art educator and I LOVE your blog. I completely understand where your jealousy comes from – I feel like my jealousy of other artists comes from a similar place. My kids in my class always laugh because I’m constantly telling them that they need to look at more artists, now I will be steering them towards your blog as evidence.

    I have my own inspiration blog on tumblr as well if you want to see the artists that make me (and my 15 year olds, haha) jealous. maramagyarosi.tumblr.com

    Thank you for what you do!

  443. the jealous curator /// 10.27.2013 /// 9:00pm

    oh, thanks so much mara! yes, send those 15 year olds over here!!! 🙂

  444. Daiva Mitchell /// 10.28.2013 /// 5:55am

    I just came across your blog and love it! It’s so great to be introduced to new artists and their amazing work. I am jealous of thejealouscurator! I would love you to look at the art work of my best friend. I am totally jealous of her ability to make the coolest contemporary art! She would also love to expand her clientele and we’ve both agreed that California is the place to go. Check her out at http://www.meredithbingham.com and let me know what you think.

  445. the jealous curator /// 10.28.2013 /// 8:16am

    thanks so much daiva! i’ll go and check her out right now : )

  446. asif shwartz yassour /// 10.29.2013 /// 3:07am

    hello you jealous curator!
    i have so much fum in your blog! Really cool idea!
    im an artist from israel, lieving in berlin, After seeing some knitted work you put here, I thought you might also find interest in my work …
    You are very, very welcome to visit my website!
    Keep up the excellent work! Many thanks and a lovely day!

  447. Louisa /// 10.30.2013 /// 9:06am

    just came across your blog from a friend of mine –
    it’s awesome – keep it up – fabulous concept! – Louisa.

  448. the jealous curator /// 10.30.2013 /// 9:59am

    thanks louisa! : )

  449. Anne Tirey /// 10.31.2013 /// 6:38pm

    I see in your space the love of enjoying being inspired and not as much sharing of your own work. I like to talk off-topic, which is where I go to see the world: all over and in crevices. Although you are focused and devine, I see my views have company! Thank you for your fresh and true work – let’s look around! I was surprised to find myself in a similar but differently- organized area. Thank you.

  450. alex feliciano /// 11.04.2013 /// 7:00am

    Hello, I can’t say enough, your collection inspires me weekly, thank you.

  453. Adam Stockman /// 11.04.2013 /// 7:16pm

    Thanks for your site, and congrats on the book, it’s wonderful after all your work to have this tangible object to come out with.

  454. the jealous curator /// 11.04.2013 /// 7:41pm

    yes! that’s how i feel too… when your work happens online, it sure feels good to actually hold something in your hands! thanks adam : )

  455. Nicole Shaver /// 11.06.2013 /// 11:56am

    Hello jealous curator!
    I am very jealous of your site. Please check out my work here http://www.nicolejshaver.com if you have a minute!!!

    Thank you!

    i certainly will… clicking NOW! ; )

  459. Erin Prais-Hintz /// 11.13.2013 /// 9:17am

    I don’t know how I stumbled on your blog a few years ago, but I never miss a post! I love the art that you have exposed me to and it truly is worth every bit of envy! I am an artisan jewelry designer. Yes, I have had my art jewelry in exhibitions and most notably of late two pieces selected for the Showcase 500 Art Jewelry Necklaces publication by Lark, but I wanted to share with you a local artist in our artists cooperative that I am a part of. His name is Alexander Landerman. His website features a beautifully produced video showing timelapse of how he makes one of his letterpress and charcoal works of art. I am smitten with the detail in his work! I think you might be too! I hope you will check it out: http://alexanderlanderman.com/

  460. the jealous curator /// 11.13.2013 /// 10:58am

    wow. gorgeous!!! thanks so much for the link erin (and for never missing a post!) 🙂

  461. michael ward /// 11.15.2013 /// 11:02pm

    Love your site, and the fact that you actually read the comments. If you’re feeling the need to curate, take a look at my work here: http://www.tmichaelward.com/michaelwardartist.htm, Thanks!

  462. Megan Bonser /// 11.19.2013 /// 3:01am

    Hi! Firstly, I’d like to say how inspiring your curation skills are – I’m a big fan of your website and love your taste! I am an Art student hoping to go into gallery/online curation and would love the opportunity to gain some more experience in the area. Do you work alone in the upkeep of our website? I would love to be able to help! Either way please feel free to check out my blogs…I also upkeep Pinterest, Flickr & Saatchi Online accounts.
    Thank-you so much!

  463. Alice Zhang /// 11.19.2013 /// 7:43am

    Hey! I love the works and artists that you feature on your site! I am a Montreal based artist/illustrator and would love to have the opportunity to be featured on your site. 🙂

    Keep up the great work!


  464. Naomi McCavitt /// 11.20.2013 /// 10:40am

    Hi there! I love the blog and never missed a post. I would love to be included if you think the work fits. Thanks for all the amazing work you have turned me on to. Best, Naomi McCavitt http://www.naomimccavitt.com

  465. Ms Brightside /// 11.23.2013 /// 10:24am

    hey, I recently found your blog and fell in love with the caption! Really that is the feeling I feel I’m wandering in art galleries most of the time. I do make some art works sometimes but I think I lack creativity so I thought I better just learn and enjoy the arts rather than making it haha:)

    I started an arts blog a month ago, even though I can’t find time to post a lot of stuff now, hopefully I’ll be working on it to make it better and better in coming days.
    Loved your blog, hope I also have an amazing blog like this with lots of amazing followers who enjoy the same interests with me!

  466. the jealous curator /// 11.23.2013 /// 1:37pm

    do it! it’s so rewarding, and amazing to create a group of like-minded people so that you can all enjoy the work together! good luck!

  467. Lindsay Arnold /// 12.01.2013 /// 6:51am

    Your posts have been a bright point in my facebook feed for over a year now. I love your celebration of the artist while admitting the jealousy. If only everyone would do that!

    Keep posting so this artist in the middle of nowhere can keep enjoying!

    All the best

  468. the jealous curator /// 12.01.2013 /// 9:46am

    oh thanks lindsay! i sure will… no plans of EVER stopping : )

  469. Rachel Griel /// 12.02.2013 /// 8:46am

    Hello! A friend of mine just introduced me to this blog, and after seeing your post about Stephanie K. Clark, I hoped that you would enjoy my artwork as well, which also explores the use of embroidery in art, but in a very different way. I’d be flattered if you’d take the time to look!


  470. Evan Orlando /// 12.02.2013 /// 5:20pm

    Hello! I love your blog! I just found it today via Art Hound. I’m an artist from Portland, Oregon and I’m currently working on a series of “dumpster abstractions”- painted woodcarvings inspired by the rust, scratches and peeling paint I find and photograph around town. I’d love it if you’d take a look at my website- I just spent 6 hours updating it just for you! Thanks so much, I hope I made you jealous! -Evan Orlando

    Hey there,

    I was on your site and noticed that you used WordPress as your platform. I thought I’d reach out and invite you to use our free advanced content delivery WordPress plugin that reduces bandwidth costs. In addition to reduced bandwidth costs your site will also experience improved image serving based on your end users geographical location like a traditional CDN. This Swarm plugin also comes with a free advanced video player and only takes a few minutes to install.

    Although we are a type of CDN you can run our plugin concurrently with your CDN (or any host) and we actually encourage it. For example, we have many sites running us on top of MaxCDN, Cloudflare, Cloudfront and others for maximum efficiency.

    I was hoping we could discuss further and you’d allow me to send you our special private invitation (bypass link). As an early adopter you’ll bypass the Professional Paid Plan that we’re working on implementing.

    Hi Jealous Curator!

    I just wanted to say I LOVE the Fig House artwork! The different rooms and their well thought-out galleries are really a wonderful inspiration. I only wish I could take a trip out to see it in person! I also wanted to send you a link to my website. My work is very modern and organic. I hope you enjoy!

    Have a great 2014 and I will look forward to seeing what you choose this year!

    I totally admire your dedication to your blog. It is constantly updated and full of new inspiration. The kids at school love to use it for research purposes and to find new ideas. An absolutely precious resource.

    Thank you so much!!

    Hello, My name is Molly and I am an artist working with adornment on and off of the body. I work with objects found on the street and collected materials such as shoe heels and rubber. Here is a link to my website.


    There is so much amazing work on your blog! Thank you for the inspiration/jealousy 🙂 It is wonderful to have a resource like this to get excited about new work. Thank you!

  488. Tracey /// 01.08.2014 /// 4:36pm

    Hi Danielle- I simply loooooove your site.
    I’m hoping that you can help me as I finally have enough money to purchase from one of your featured artists BUT !!!!!! I can’t seem to find her or remember her name !
    She does sculpture with crochet/knitting over animal forms (and I believe that you have a piece of hers). The one I remember (and hope is still available) is a pale-ish blue wolf with a lemon in its mouth.
    I REALLY need to learn to bookmark this stuff . Thanks so much, Tracey

  489. the jealous curator /// 01.08.2014 /// 10:40pm

    rachel denny!!!! yes, she (and her work) is amazing!!! if the wolf with lemon isn’t available, you can contact her to do a commissioned piece (that’s what i did to get my hot pink deer head!) … http://racheldenny.com/contact.html
    good luck! let me know what you get : )

  490. Erin /// 01.09.2014 /// 9:42am

    Hey there Danielle!!

    Holy freaking moly!!!! This is such a great site for inspiration!!! Thanks for curating such a beautiful collection of work!!! It is so varied but all so so nice!! I can’t wait for your book to come out!!

    Just wanted to stop by and say hello and thanks for a nice nice site!!

    I’m leaving my work here: http://eringuido.tumblr.com/

    But, it is probably not as finished and refined as the stuff you publish, but I’m still working 😉

    Happy New Year!


  491. the jealous curator /// 01.09.2014 /// 9:52am

    hey erin! your work is great… especially love the text work (i pinned a few!). do you sell those anywhere? etsy?

  492. maja /// 01.09.2014 /// 10:17am

    hi, danielle, happy new year!

    i’ve been keeping up with your blog and facebook for the past few months and thought i’d finally be in touch. there are a few artists — cig harvey and paulette tavormina, to name two — that i think might really be up your alley. you may already know about both of them (how do you keep everyone in your head?!) but i want to be sure. you can find both of them on our website..alongside several other greats.

    thanks for sharing your great eye!

    very best,


  493. Erin /// 01.09.2014 /// 10:32am

    Oh man, thanks so much Danielle!! Funny that you ask…a couple friends asked for prints, so I’m in the process of printing some on nice paper! I’m happy to send you one!! 🙂 I have been thinking about setting up an etsy site, but I don’t have one yet!

    PS Maja….great suggestions!

  494. the jealous curator /// 01.09.2014 /// 12:52pm

    good for you! go for it! let me know when you have an etsy shop and i’ll be your first customer 🙂

  495. Nicole /// 01.09.2014 /// 5:37pm

    Hello! I recently found this blog and I’ve been having a blast looking through it. I love the huge range of art that you feature and can only imagine the hours you’ve put into it. Thank you for dedicating so much time to creating a beautiful little corner of the Internet for all to enjoy.

    I wanted to share with you my recently-launched Kickstarter campaign, a project where I’ll draw the dreams of those who support it. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/673271658/the-dream-complex-if-youve-dreamt-it-i-will-draw-i

    I’m not sure if you feature stuff like this, and no worries if you don’t. It would be great if you just took a look and tell people about it. Thanks for your time! 🙂

    Have a great day,

  496. zuccaazzurra /// 01.10.2014 /// 8:04am

    There is only one word to shout out: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE….your blog makes me feel really happy…

    ps: I know someone from Ottawa, Michelè Provost, maybe you can check her out…she has definitely artworks worth showing in your blog….have a great day and happy belated 2014…thanks again…

  497. Jenni Freidman /// 01.10.2014 /// 8:33am

    you have a great blog. i’m totally using you as inspiration for my own. keep up the great work!

  501. Barbara White /// 01.12.2014 /// 12:39pm

    You are awesome, totally awesome. I admire you and all that you create AND, I have a wonderful friend, somewhat like yourself (artist, self doubting genius) who lives in Oakland, CA and would love to share her work with you to check out. I tell Adele, that she is my muse; that her artistic genius inspires me – – as does yours. Adele Crawford is her name, her website is http://www.adelecrawford.com and I know you will enjoy her creative genius AND perhaps begin that Girl Crush in Oakland. Keep up your creative genius and stop the self doubt!

  502. the jealous curator /// 01.13.2014 /// 9:24am

    oh thanks so much barbara! i’ll go check her out… thank you! : )

  503. Bethany /// 01.14.2014 /// 12:43pm

    LOVE this blog and now I am jealous. Wish I had more time to check it out and be inspired. I will have to mark it and come back and visit when I have more time. Great work/collection!

  504. Nikki Kanter /// 01.14.2014 /// 1:14pm

    As someone who works in the fine arts but is not an artist, I completely understand that feeling of “I wish I thought of that!”

  505. Rachel Henriques /// 01.15.2014 /// 5:45pm

    I really enjoy your blog at every update. Its so interesting and well balanced in terms of your choices. Thanks for being an additional voice out there for us artists. Your support is needed. We all make our work regardless of the audience and its so inspiring when others see it and encourage us to continue. Heres a link to a series of lithograph’s I just recently completed at Litho Shop in Baltimore MD. They are called ‘Cracker bags’ & I’m very excited about them and hope you enjoy them too! Thanks for taking a peek…..http://lithoshop.tumblr.com/

  510. Laura /// 01.23.2014 /// 3:31pm

    I’ve been following (jealously) along with you for years! Especially in moments of utter frustration after graduating art school and feeling lost, your site has continued to be such a great source of inspiration! I don’t often shamelessly share links of my work but I thought you’d like a recent illustration project I did for my design studio. You can check it out here: http://wedesignstudios.com/work/business_cards_02/
    and the original patterns and illustrations here: http://cargocollective.com/lauraworrick

    Either way, keep doing what you’re doing, ’cause it makes me happy 🙂

  511. the jealous curator /// 01.23.2014 /// 4:26pm

    oh thanks laura… glad i could be there (i had lots of those moments after graduating from art school too!)
    ps. those cards are gorgeous!!

  515. Caitlin Pow /// 01.29.2014 /// 6:15pm


    I just wanted to recommend an old friend of mine for you to take a peek at his artwork. It is imaginative, detailed, trippy and creepy at times – everything you want in fine art, yes?



  516. the jealous curator /// 01.29.2014 /// 10:04pm

    thanks caitlin and elizabeth.. i’ll pop over and look! : )

    Hi Danielle,

    I’ve been finding awesome new inspiration through your blog for a few years now, so I thought I’d finally bite the bullet and share my own site to see what you think. Stay jealous!

  522. Sarah /// 02.11.2014 /// 12:57pm

    Hi I love your blog!
    I recently discovered the work of Japanese artist Yoshimasa Tsuchiya and thought you might like his stuff. He makes these really adorable, whimsical sculptures of different creatures that are sculpted from wood but are very delicate looking, almost as if they are made from porcelain. Just wanted to share it with you. 🙂


  523. Kristi Kohut /// 02.11.2014 /// 3:10pm

    Your blog is AMAZING! Thank you for the inspiration!

  530. the jealous curator /// 02.17.2014 /// 7:51am

    thanks so much eric… and your site is gorgeous! lots of great picks – enjoy the ride {it’s pretty addictive!} 😉

  531. Mina /// 02.20.2014 /// 7:12am

    I want to first congratulate you on all of your success, I have been enjoying your features for years now and you are getting better, bigger and brighter. I support your choice to not go to school for this and instead, get the real world, hands on knowledge – I think that that’s what makes you unbiased and more open minded.

    My name is Mina and I make Fine Art Photography – I am a transplant from Europe and found solace in art and photography after moving to NYC, it has been both my catharsis, therapy and kept me connected to myself. My portfolio includes a series of vivid, colorful and lighthearted pieces. Saturated hues, scratches, textures, and blurred motion combine to add a certain charm and nostalgia to each print.

    I think (hope) you and your readers would appreciate my work, you can view more of my work at http://www.etsy.com/shop/minagraphy

    I hope you have a relaxed week! 🙂

  532. the jealous curator /// 02.20.2014 /// 9:00am

    ah! so lovely mina… they make me want to go on vacation right this very minute! thank you so much for all of the lovely words about TJC. this comment made my day!

  533. Lindsay Stripling /// 02.24.2014 /// 10:11pm

    Hello TJC!

    I just wanted to say thank you for such an amazing blog, I look forward to checking in to discover new emerging artists to inspire me every week.

    When you get a second I would love it if you took a look at my work: http://www.lindsaystripling.com

    I live in SF so I hope to see you March 5th! Congrats on the book!


  534. Cheryl Hicks /// 02.27.2014 /// 5:34am

    I always enjoy experiencing your fabulous finds! I recently started a blog to document a project I am working on titled, “I Just Don’t Read Like I Used To,” in which I cut up books to create mixed media portraits and other images. I would be thrilled if you take at my site.

  535. Sam Malpass /// 02.27.2014 /// 1:05pm

    TJC, L O V E your site! What a killer place to catch some inspiration (and feel the jealousy)! I’m sure you have artists lined up- but- if could find the time to scope my work I promise you will not be disappointed. I would love to add to the creativity and uniqueness of your site! I appreciate your time 🙂 CHEERS, Badway http://www.badwaycreative.com

  541. Keith MacLelland /// 03.05.2014 /// 7:20pm

    Thank you TJC for maintaining and sharing such an visually rich and diverse collection artists. Among others, I am particularly drawn to your posts of work by Meghan Stratman, photos and sculptures of Marcela Cárdenas, photography by Autumn de Wilde, as well as the collaged paintings by Elizabeth Amento, Amy Alice Thompson, and Jose Romussi.

    Your quote “stopped in my tracks” resinated with me. While scrolling though your curatorial selections that’s the exact feeling I got when I stumbled onto these artists. Thanks!

    You may find my own work speaks to your sensibilities as well.

    Heroic singing cowboys of the 1950’s are the cultural source of my work. The contemporary hero cowboys I am creating are street and eco-conscious, built from everyday discards – scratch tickets, cracker boxes, juice cartons, business cards, candy wrappers, and junk mail. The color palette is dominated by primary colors, echoing the innocence and purity of the singing cowboy while speaking to today’s technologically amped–up audience. As a nod to the costuming of the 50’s era icon, the works are often embellished with brightly colored pieces and elements such as rhinestones, glitter and silver studs – an equally contemporary fashion consciousness.


    Thank you again Danielle, and thank’s for looking!

    Cheers – Keith

    Wonderful blog? Do you accept by e-mail works of young artist? 😀 And what is the way to send you some photos? 😀

  544. the jealous curator /// 03.11.2014 /// 6:56am

    i do indeed… but i prefer a link to a site. my poor inbox can’t take all of the photos that show up there 🙂 please send a link to contact@thejealouscurator.com

  545. Vicki /// 03.12.2014 /// 7:51am

    Hi Danielle – a friend introduced me to your blog yesterday. I love the concept of turning jealousy into inspiration! Also looking forward to reading Creative Block – we can all use some help in that direction! I’ve recently started my own art blog that includes my paintings and little stories about the circumstance/process behind them. Definitely a work in progress, but I’m hoping others can relate to their life in some way or become inspired. Feel free it check it out – vickiworldart.com.

    Thanks! Vicki

  546. the jealous curator /// 03.12.2014 /// 8:06am

    oh thanks vicki – glad you found your way over here! and good for you for getting your blog going… it has been life changing for me! good luck! : )

  547. Gail Folwell /// 03.17.2014 /// 7:38am

    I’m Gail Folwell, a sculptor with a Design and Fine Art background. ‘Handle The Art’, from Folwell Studios is brand new. These are solid bronze, with a silver/grey patina, pulls and knobs. I believe that sculpture should be touched and I hope that art collections will grace the walls and halls of new and seasoned collectors everywhere. I hope you’re “jealous….in a bad, toxic, soul-crushing way”! I’d love you forever if I got a mention in your blog! Design and Fine Arts have finally broken all the boundaries and having lived on both sides of that fence, it’s exciting. Designed products are the new canvas for conceptual and affecting works of Art. More people are starting to understand that it’s not just about how it looks, it’s about how it makes you feel. ‘Handle The Art’ was a personal collection created for our own home. The hardware garnered much attention, as did the house, winning multiple AIA awards. I’m recognized for contemporary, figurative bronze sculpture. My art is in the Denver Art Museum and I’ve done monumental public works for cities across the country, among them, Vail, CO, Frisco, TX, Universities in Ohio, Alabama, private collections and galleries, Claggett/Rey in Vail, I Wolk/Maisonry in the Napa Valley, Hunter Kirkland in Santa Fe and Walker Fine Arts in Denver. I’d love to know your thoughts!

I’ve dared never to admit the jealously I experienced when I saw other’s art that I admired- lord, the burning in my chest. (I guess I never even realized it myself!) But over the last years, I am working on “not being that person!” I decided that I rather be inspirational than confrontational! I rather not spread negative energy to the world and for my own wellbeing ! I must say – it takes my breath away about how much talent is out there and how much you’ve highlighted. So thank you !! I find when I’m happiest with myself and others when I’m living my truest self! I have always said the biggest compliment I can give an artist is that “You made me think in a different way! “

  551. the jealous curator /// 03.24.2014 /// 12:35am

    oh i’m so glad you find me nonney, and love your perspective on appreciating other artists work! that truly is a huge compliment to any artist!

  552. Jason Rondinelli /// 03.24.2014 /// 5:58am

    Hi Danielle, I really enjoy reading your blog. I’m writing you to find out of you know of a good curating 101 book to recommend to a visual artist who doesn’t have an eye as sharp as yours. I’d like to know more about the topic and need some basic concrete guidance. Thank you for your time and for your wonderful work! – Jason

  553. the jealous curator /// 03.24.2014 /// 6:54am

    hey jason! thanks so much! hm. a book. i have no idea! i’ve always just gone by gut instinct (which i’m sure you can do too!) but if i come across anything i’ll let you know : )

    I love reading all of these comments of others who have also been inspired by your blog (not to mention the material and descriptions that are posted on the curated blog!) I am a soon-to-be-college graduate attempting to continue to live this blissful life where my only job is to work on my art. A friend of mine (and fellow student) was recently published on your blog and she so inspired me (and encouraged me) that I figured I might as well send you my work as well. I hope you enjoy it!

    Dear Danielle,
    (This email is for you, not a blog comment.)
    It was wonderful to meet you tonight, and the panel was terrific. Here are some of the sites I mentioned that I’d tried to send you recently via FB:
    Here are the embroidered eggs, seedpods, etc.: http://esthertraugot.com/section/354833_Eggs.html
    Do you know Kate Williamson’s book/series, A Year in Japan? It’s a watercolor diary: http://www.katetwilliamson.com/japan.htm
    I think you did see those wild Dutch embroidered portraits of scientists and their animal subjects : http://www.textileartist.org/petra-van-der-steen-contemplative-occupation/
    Okay, that’s it for now.
    All the best,

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    My name is Matt Panuska, and I am an artist and Illustrator. I’m also a big fan of the blog and a regular reader. The plethora of photos and detail shots is something that is missing from most art blogs, and it’s something I’m always looking for. I just wanted to say hello and share my work with you. Attached is a link to my work, and perhaps you could take a look at it. Hopefully you like it, and thank you for your time!


  566. Gary Justis /// 04.06.2014 /// 10:00am

    I am sharing your site with our students and colleagues. As soon as the jealousy I felt from looking at your site subsided, I came to my senses and wanted to share images…maybe you will find them interesting, or perhaps as an interesting screen-saver (?)

    You do a lovely job on this site and I am grateful having discovered it.
    For the photos mentioned, please visit: http://www.mannekenpress.com/
    and follow my name.

    thank you!

    Dear Danielle,

    Huge fan of the site, and hopefully I will be able to see you in person in Vancouver soon when you do your talk. I thought you would like to take a look at my butterflies I create:


    Please carry on the fantastic work.

    Regards, Chris.

    Hi Danielle,

    I started following your blog a few weeks ago and I love it 🙂 I also appreciate how frequently you post! I love looking at pretty things, its such a nice break from my mundane office cubicle 😛

    I wanted to share with you a link to an artist that I really love. Take a look here: http://www.artbysteve.squarespace.com/flyingcars/

    He has a range of subject matter. I like some of his architecture pieces, and I love his landscapes, but I just think these flying cars are adorable.

    Anyway, I know you are bombarded my links to websites all the time, but that’s what you love, right? Discovering new art 🙂


  570. the jealous curator /// 04.08.2014 /// 4:30pm

    so fun! thanks for the link (and very sweet words!), adelaide! : )

  571. John C Miller /// 04.09.2014 /// 11:51am

    Finally found another source of inspiration! Thanks for this great blog! How you have come to this blog is pretty much where I am at right now with my own work. Almost a standstill yet I create and trash works constantly in my mind. I would be honored if you could take a look at my work when you get a chance. It goes in several directions, but enough said.
    my ballerina, sleep, and heart series good places to start.
    thank you in advance and thank you again for putting together such a great site and source of inspiration!!

    Dear Danielle,

    I’m following TJC blog for quite a while and I thought this easter-weekend: Let’s give it a try. I wonder what you think of my illustrations. I make pen drawing and it would be amazing if you can take a look at it.

    Congratulations on your second book. And that is on the shelves om MoMa! I’ll look forward reading it. Your artists-choices feel very fresh in the contemporary art scene to me.

    Best wishes and have a nice easter,
    Suzanne (The Netherlands)

    I hope you have time to look through my art and give me feedback.

    Thanks for daily inspiration.

    Hi Danielle!
    My name is Dilla, a student from Indonesia who’s currently studying a Communication at the American University of Rome, Italy. I’m currently working on an art and illustration magazine for my thesis project. I have read your book “Creative Block” and I think it’s wonderfully inspiring! I really love the art, the interviews, and the “unblock creative! challenges! So I decided to write the book review for my magazine 🙂 I also interviewed some of the artists you featured such as Holly Farrell, Arian Behzadi, Trey Speegle, and Alyson Fox and it’s very interesting to know what each artist think about the book! I would like to ask you more about it, where should I send it to?

    Also, I’m a beginner illustrator, perhaps you can take a look some of my works on http://www.kreavi.com/ffdilla 🙂

    Thank you Danielle!

    Kindest greetings from the Eternal City,

    Hey Danielle,

    from time to time I take a walk in the world wide web – in search of inspriring blogs – especially in the field of arts. (I’m a German based painter myself…) A few weeks ago I came across your work – and – WOW – I really love your idea and your high quality collection!!!! Great idea!! I wondered if it would be ok to you if i write about your work on my blog? … And – of course – it would be great if you might want to take a closer look at my work… 🙂

    All the best to you and thanks for loads of creative input!
    Best wishes!

  592. the jealous curator /// 04.30.2014 /// 8:02am

    There’s an installation that went with these at: http://www.laurilynnxemurphy.com/whatremains#!what-remains/c1d3u

  595. Jeanne Heifetz /// 05.01.2014 /// 4:39pm

    I’m in Eugene, OR, where I gave an artist’s talk today, and one of the questions was, “What do you do when you get into a rut or get stuck?” Did I have book for them! I told them all about Creative Block and gave them a little bit of the art-school history you had shared in NYC (this was at a college). I’ll let them know you’ll be in Portland very soon.

    I am a fashion designer and artist committed to critically exploring the intersections of fashion, art, and feminism through a unique combination of concept driven and hand crafted items. I’ve recently shown my first series of fine art pieces, Little Thoughts: Embroidered Self Portraits. I would love to see them among the mix at The Jealous Curator.

    Thanks for looking and for inspiring so many!

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    I found your blog because you featured a friend of mine in the past. I thought to submit to you informally here, as I see others have done the same. I had a nice long session scrolling through your picks, and very much enjoyed it. I did a show called “Collisions” that portrayed paradigm shifts as experienced personally through moving abroad from Los Angeles to Tokyo. My website shows a selection of these paintings as the first four in the gallery page. I really appreciate your consideration! I did notice that my style is a bit different than what you usually post, so it may not be something that goes with your site, and if so I totally understand.

    Keep up the awesome online curation!

    Benjamin Adelmann

  606. Mary Goldthwaite-Gagne /// 05.15.2014 /// 5:41am

    HI there,

    I just wanted to pass along the work of a friend of mine, because as a longtime follower of your blog I think you would really love her work:



  607. Xavier Wynn /// 05.15.2014 /// 10:42am


    I wanted to submit some artwork for your blog. My wife and I have collaborated on a series of wicked sick found object sculptures over the past year. They are explorations in identity and personality; surrealist portraits inspired by medical imagery (those awesome Body Slices that used to be displayed at the Museum of Science & Industry in Chicago) and created using found objects that my wife and I have collected since forever (memories, bits, treasures, trash and love). We wanted to create something that explored personality and character in a unique way that expressed something very personal for us yet still let other people find something for themselves as well.

    You can see the work at http://www.emnxw.com (along with other potentially brain imploding art – beware).

    We are really proud of these pieces. They are personal, beautiful, odd, original and tell special stories.

    Thank you very much for your time and sharing the wonderful work you have found.

    have a great day

    Xavier Wynn

  608. Polly M. Law /// 05.15.2014 /// 2:29pm

    You do good work,
    I think I do good work,
    Maybe you will also.
    Here it is,
    What the heck.
    Thank you.

  609. Kelly Cook /// 05.16.2014 /// 5:31pm

    First of all- thank you thank you! This blog brings me back from the blahs and the can’t-dos and the mundane and really pushes me to create. It is like nothing I have seen and I appreciate it so much. Thank. You.

    Secondly- the most lovely woman I know just “retired” from teaching Art to pursue her work full time. She has work that I am 100% jealous of, and I think you will adore her and her story. Where I am a blabber mouth, I don’t think she would ever toot her own horn, so I just wanted to toot it for her. She also let’s her little girls paint on her work and incorporates it in to enormous, dreamy paintings.

    I hope her work resonates, and thank you again. Can’t wait to get your book and keep finding reasons to create.


  610. the jealous curator /// 05.17.2014 /// 4:11pm

    oh, thanks so much kelly… that totally made my day!
    that’s so exciting for your friend!! good for her! i’ll pop over to her site and have a look : )

    Timothy,Any chance we do not need the ISC supplicant with Windows 7? One can only hope….I’ve installed, tested and read a bit about Windows 7. The beta does offer roughly %10 improvement in performance. And it is more compatible with 3rd party software.However, I am kind of taken aback by the fact that MS releases this new OS only 2 years after Vista.Thanks,Stan

    Wow. It is such a delight to find someone with such a great eye for art. I had to close my gallery of 97 local artists at the end of last year and miss the breathtaking variety of art on my walls. It did give me the chance to play with my own work, so there is always a silver lining. I so look forward to seeing more incredible work, thanks to you. If I’m not being too forward, I’d like to introduce you to my own work, encaustics, oil pencil and pastel on slate tiles. I love how the human form and stone go hand in hand. I hope you enjoy them. Thank you!

    I believe my first comment on here was made a couple years ago during college. I’m back to let you know that your eye for beautiful work has inspired me all the way through school and beyond. I still seek your blog when I’m feeling unsure of where I should go next with my work and I always leave excited with my absolute love for art rekindled. Thanks so much for that. I see you get this often, but if you’d like to take a peek at my illustration work, I’d be beyond honored (it involves cats, flowers, vintage lingerie and swirly hair, yay!) and P.S. congrats on your book!!

    I love your blog- you have gorgeous work on here. I regularly use this as inspiration for my students at work (I’m an artist educator). As a UK artist/designer/maker I have recently started making work again to sell (mainly for children) and would love it if you would take a look. I’m influenced by nature, traditional nursery rhyme and stories and my imagination!

    If you could take a peek at my website I would be thrilled. I make very small architectural paintings.

    Thanks again!

    Hi there, this is not a post to ask you to look at my site or anything, to be honest I just stumbled on this site today and seriously…. it is amazing! What a fantastic idea, I know I am going to spend hours on here! I just wanted to say thanks for you work!

  634. DeShaun /// 07.10.2014 /// 11:51am

    Hey there, it’s so great to see that you are still keeping up with the comments after all this time! Maybe I can spark some inspiration/jealousy with my abstract project on my page 🙂

    Really glad to have stumbled upon your page. Found you via Crated’s twitter.

    Oh, oh, oh, I can’t wait for you to see the work of Ruth Marten — incredible, subtle, mischievous and mysterious drawn interventions on found botanical/zoological/historical illustrations. You may have to view in full screen to see what she’s done — she blends her own work so seamlessly with the original. http://www.ruthmarten.com

    This website is mostly a walk-through for all of the data you needed about this and didn’t know who to ask. Glimpse right here, and also you’ll positively discover it.

    I just wanted to say that your blog is wonderful. Also, I read with sadness the Facebook post about the teacher who had a negative effect on your painting and congratulate you on picking up the brush again. As an art teacher, I often hear of destructive comments being made to students and it is terrible every time. Everything you do adds to the world and you have done way more for people than that “teacher” ever could. Huzzah!

    Dear Daniella,
    I wish to tell you a bit about insecurity and a real good source for a ‘writers’ block…. Since you write about it and have a great sensibility for what can drive you to keep going on creating work, i thought I would share my latest experience with you (and your blog readers)….

    Last week I was at a retirementhome for an exposition of my lastest work. You should know that I’m not someone who finds it easy to expose my work. I’m a pretty closed person and find it hard to send my work into the world, so this was quite a step for me.
    But, that said, at the moment I had put my work on the walls I thought that it was all hanging nicely, at my satisfaction and feeling quite content.
    Following I shared this on my facebook account etc.

    Untill…. this thursday, when the director of the retirement home came to me to make ‘his’ comment about my work. This is what he told me;
    He had received some messages from inhabitants of the retirement home that they found my work a bit too intense, they felt unsafe with it and thought it was a bit scary even. There had been feelings that connected to the the ones people felt about the whole plaincrash situation in Ukrain (in Holland, where I live, this is quite intense at the moment). He really didn’t want the inhabitants of his retirementhome to feel unsafe (me neither of course), so he kindly asked me to remove some of the works that caused the feeling of unsafeness.

    Yeah…. Maybe you can understand that that gave me some conflicitng feelings. On one hand i felt pretty humiliated that he asked me te remove some work, a bit angry too, but on the other hand it’s also a compliment that obviously the work gave people something to think about and, not less important, feel someting! The last comment I make is, of course, rational, not emotional.

    A pretty good base for insecurity end a ‘writer block’, isn’t it? Especially when the base isn’t so solid to begin with….

    Welll, this is what I just wanted to share with you. Thank you for ‘listening’ and thank you very much for your nice blog and inspirering shared artwork!
    Greets from the Netherlands!

  647. the jealous curator /// 07.27.2014 /// 7:29pm

    Wow. Good for you… so impressed that you could see the positive part of that experience, and rightly so! Clearly your work made an impact! Now you just need to find a gallery that can handle “unsafe” work : )

  648. Iris Weaver /// 07.28.2014 /// 10:18am

    Another local artist told me you might like you look at my work…I love your website!

  649. s. arden hill /// 07.28.2014 /// 9:53pm

    I am such a big fan of your blog… that I’m the jealous of the jealous curator curator….. hahah…. I was hoping you could look at my links. maybe you’ll like them, maybe you’ll love them.

    thank you,

I’d love to return the favor and share my gift with you http://www.vakseen.com/site/artwork. Thank you again for your time, in every way possible.

    Hi TJC!

    I stumbled upon your blog a few weeks ago from SF Girl by the Bay, and I have to say, I absolutely adore it! I love the concept behind it; I admit, I definitely do identify with artist jealousy. In fact, I think it has been a lot of the absolutely paralyzing artistic block I’ve been experiencing for the last two years or so. I have been trying to climb out of it recently, but it is a challenge. Finding your blog and reading your about section is definitely inspiring; it’s hard to turn the jealousy into inspiration, but I think it can be done.

    Anywho, reading your blog made me think of my friend Hilary, who I have most certainly experienced artistic jealousy over! I thought you might want to check out her work; she makes fabric dolls, acrylic/screenprinted paintings, and screenprints. Here are a couple links to her works:


    Hope you are having a good one!

    How do you submit artwork to your site gallery. Is there a process or do you simply give a web address for your viewing?

    Hello TJC! I completely adore your blog. I’m starting a BFA in photography at SFAI and I want to grow out of what I’ve been comfortably making the last few years and your blog inspires me to do that! Hopefully one day you’ll be jealous of my art work as well 😉

    Good luck on everything!

    I don’t want to post… just wanted to say to you privately that i read the article on you in the Opus newsletter …and your experience at UVic was excruciatingly similar to mine.

  670. the jealous curator /// 09.04.2014 /// 10:39am

    i’m sorry to hear that ida… but i can’t tell you how many people have told me that exact same thing. not a great consolation, but at least we know we’re not alone! thanks for leaving the message – i totally appreciate it

  671. Heidi Drupsteen /// 09.04.2014 /// 5:48pm

    Hello TJC,

    I have enjoyed your site very much over the years!
    I’d like you to invite you to view my daughter’s website- she has used her method of papercutting to help her cope with chronic depression and anxiety. What she does to relax and calm herself would drive many people crazy! She has started to enter her work in local artshows in our area. angeladrupsteen.com

    Many thanks, Heidi

    Well, I confess to have envy when I see things online too, and well, it can lead to inspiration too-but sometimes I fall into a few moments of pathetic self-beating..which is then helped by creating, so I guess either way, it is good! You can visit my world of art/writing/farm if you wish, maybe someone will say, “I wished I’d thoughtof that!” http://www.katherinedunn.us

    I was on a trip last week to SF, and on a bookstore in Haight St. I came across “Creative Block”. I immediately bought it, because as an artist myself, I can relate so much to the stuff published there. Thanks for sharing so much!! I’ll now dig on your blog!!

    I absolutely love your site! I visit it every day during my lunch break. I have been so inspired by all the wonderful artists and I am super thankful that you are collecting and sharing all different types of art. I am currently working on a series call “For what it’s worth” that uses vintage photographs. Not to toot my own horn but I think you may find some of my work interesting. I would love to see a curated post of all diffent types of artist who use, repurposed and deconstructed found imagery related to family albums and snapshots. ( Even if it didn’t include my work :). . . )


    Keep up the good work and I will catch ya during my next lunch break.

    I am so pleased to read your blog after a friend turned me on to it:) I have been using Instagram (@simonarri) to showcase my work mainly and I never thought about blog features for promoting. I had the hardest time approaching galleries and talking about my work. After gaining followers on Instagram, I realized what I wanted a lot from my art is for strangers to like it. I love showing my friends, but somehow I felt they were required to say it was good. I didn’t realize this before pushing myself to put my art out there, and it gave me more confidence in speaking with galleries. I’m currently in 3 shows and one of them was from a New York gallery liking my feed. Please have a look at my site:) I am concentrating on making the doughnut dioramas right now.
    Thanks so much,

    Just launched today, a new and simple archived system of my automatic drawings are now live. Hope you like them.

    Hi Jealous Curator 🙂

    This video is part of what will hopefully be a series of macro photography of everyday objects (among other things), scored by myself. Hope you like it!

    Hello Jealous Curator. Your blog is simply awesome – I am so glad I found it. I love art and design, but I am not an artist – so I didn’t really feel jealous, just happy & inspired looking at all this curated art. 🙂 I usually do an art or design inspired post every Wednesday on my blog, and this week I featured you! Let me know if you are open to doing a guest post sometime. Much love & light!

    Dear Jealous Curator
    I want to thank you for having such a great eye and generous heart.
    I’ve just seen the wonderful artist Arnaut Van Albada on your site. Such nutty joyful, and weirdly sombre paintings.
    So then I fell down your rabbit hole, looking looking looking. What a treasure trove!
    If I may be so bold…you may like to take a sly peak at my site


  729. Anna Tsvell /// 02.01.2015 /// 2:59pm

    Hello Jealous Curator! )
    I`m Anna & I`m an independent artist-illustrator. on behalf of the many artists whom you supported I want to say thank you ! you`r doing a very-very important job.
    It`s hard to be an independent artist as you know. As for me, my dream is to work & to make people happier , to inspire them . But I don`t know how to promote myself at this moment – to tell the truth I even don`t know how to do it, I just draw & draw & draw…
    So I would be mooore than grateful if you can help me somehow, if I deserve it of course !
    Here is my link : http://annatsvellgallery.tumblr.com/ .

    Thank you for your attention!
    All my best wishes, Anna

  730. Ron Schwartz /// 02.05.2015 /// 2:45pm

    Hi. What a great site. My mom, somehow, with her still limited internet savvy, posted a link on my facebook wall. After perusing many pages I immediately felt compelled to get in touch and share my work. See if it scratches any itches for you.

    My art ‘pseudonym’ is Toblerusse and it is what I use for my domain as well. I call my style abstract architecture and have a heavy M.C. Escher influence. In a sense, looking as his work makes me jealous the same way you describe in your site profile.

    I’ve recently started on a long project involving Air Jordan shoes. I plan to do 23 paintings for this series and my rough estimate is that it will take about a year longer. I’ve completed 4 so far. And I’ve been derailed by some other (fun) pet/animal related painting projects in the past few weeks.

    Long story short, I’d love it if you checked out my work and love it even more if you liked them enough to feature some.

  731. George Peters /// 02.06.2015 /// 10:05am

    I absolutely love your jealous admiration blog! It’s the treasure box find of the day. All artists need to take time off occasionally to see what’s going on in other studios. It’s inspiration that drives the creative brain. Thank you so much for your searches, discoveries and shares.

    I started a blog on a whim a while back inspired by artists who make small things. My artist partner and I had our tool shed burn and after the insurance company paid for repairs we redesigned it into a small ‘play’ gallery… started having shows of both our miniature works and other artists and friends. It eventually turned into a blog featuring the art of the small. I loved that process of looking into a world that I had wandered into as a child with a fascination for small things. You can visit it at http://www.minigalleryo.blogspot.com

    Our works are large scale public art projects, installation sculptures and large flying kite works so it was a refreshing jump into the looking glass.

    Again, lots and lots of appreciation of your “Damn… why didn’t I think of that!” blog. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve said that as well. It’s all brain and heart food.

  732. Joseph Vorgity /// 02.07.2015 /// 4:08pm

    I saw the article about you in Sunset Magazine.
    I am watercolor painter and woodblock printmaker.

    I keep coming across images on Pinterest that link back to you, and I share your jealousy/desire/feelings of utter indulgence when consuming them. I am a New Zealand artist, with no personal website but I have sent a link to my gallery. I would love to send you some more images to look at – there are a few more on Pinterest too if you search my name – although I spend much more time in the studio than on the computer. Best, Cathy

    Hi Jealous Curator (who is no longer jealous :))

    Thank you for all your work and inspiring people to take the step of promoting ones artwork. You are doing a great job and I love your picks.

    Hello TJC,
    I just bought your book, “Collage” at a little shop in San Francisco. After reading the book, I decided to check out your blog….ummmmm, soooooo good!!! I’m sure you’re a busy lady but if you’d like more work to check out here is my website… http://www.melissaarendt.com

    Keep up the great curation!
    Melissa Arendt

  736. the jealous curator /// 02.12.2015 /// 3:26pm

    hi melissa … that is crazy. i already have your work in my drafts folder as we speak. weird!

  737. Denis Schäfer /// 02.16.2015 /// 10:18am

    Hallo TJC,
    there is so much great stuff on this side! I would be happy, if you could took a moment to check my work for consideration. I do collages in a classical manner, with a sharp blade, scissors and glue. One big focus is the exploration of architecture and the urban, utopian space.


    Many thanks from Berlin,

  738. Savannah Barrington /// 02.18.2015 /// 2:47pm

    Hi TJC,

    I have followed and constantly obsessed over your blog for over a year now. Its wonderful and it has inspired me. I basically want to do what you do. I am currently a Junior in the Art History program at Oklahoma State University and am looking for a summer internship, with that said I would LOVE to intern with you! I would greatly appreciate an email response to discuss that possibility.

    Thank you so much for your time and awaiting your response!

  739. Brit /// 02.19.2015 /// 10:42am

    Hi!!! 🙂

    I just wanted to say thank you for making your blog!!! I love reading it and I love seeing inspiring art on Instagram and Facebook everyday!!!

    I definitely struggle with the same issues… I had to just start drawing without anything on my mind in order not to think of something I saw that I loved so much… It’s great to be inspired, but sometimes you just love it so much you end up painting it hahah 🙂
    I am not sure if you’d be interested in taking a peak at my shop, I know you have plenty of artist, but maybe! 🙂

    Thank you again for all of the wonderful posts!!!

  740. Patricia Larocque /// 02.21.2015 /// 2:27am

    Hi Jealous Curator,

    Following your “I wish I though of that”-feeling to the bone and having seen many great works and artists on your site (..even contacting Mark Bradley-Shoup to sell through our site in Belgium because of your post) I almost feel obligated to send you this link to a dear friend of mine Liesje Reyskens from Belgium, http://www.liesjereyskens.com. Her work and way of creating settings has always been a treat for me to look at. For the real experience download her free app “Liesje Reyskens” and bring some of her pictures to life. If you are intrested I can send you some picture cards of hers. Have a great weekend! C

  745. Erin MacKeen /// 03.11.2015 /// 8:39am

    Hi Jealous Curator, needless to say, I’m a big fan 😉 We met in person at a talk you gave in Toronto last year and I’ve been meaning to contact you ever since! I’ve recently taken the leap into a full-time art practice, which is both thrilling and terrifying! You’ve been an inspiring touchstone throughout the process. I’d love you to take a gander at my paintings, hopefully they resonate with you 🙂 I’ve recently been accepted as a maker on Great.ly and am just working to set up my shop with the new wood block pieces. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    All the best, Erin

  746. Eugene Efuni /// 03.16.2015 /// 8:26pm


    Elena Vizerskaya is one of the best photo artists today. Her photo art is stunning, imaginative and very diverse.

    Currently, we started an IndieGoGo campaign to support two of her new very unique projects. These projects are quite unusual and we would be glad to start sharing some very interesting details about them.

    We hope that you will check out her art and this campaign and will write about it if you like it. This is worth taking a look at. And we need art community’s support.

    Thank you for your attention.

    All the best,
    Eugene Efuni

    Hi Jealous Curator,
    “TEEMING”, my solo exhibition of large scale paintings, is opening this Thursday night at the upper west side Manhattan art gallery Susan Eley Fine Art.
    http://www.susaneleyfineart.com/ .
    The show will consist of brand new large scale paintings from my new “String Theory” and “Everything Changes” series. Select paintings from String Theory were just featured at PULSE New York, where they garnered a very positive response. Here is a link to my website: http://allisongreen.net/ , and directly to String Theory paintings here : http://allisongreen.net/paintings/string-theory. I’d be thrilled if you would feature the exhibition here! Thank you!

  756. Colin Easton /// 04.04.2015 /// 3:14pm


    Yesterday was my first time at Creative Mornings Vancouver! You set the bar high! I loved your presentation; there was so much that I as a writer can relate to! The Humble Pie analogy was flawless, your sincerity and vulnerability were palpable…

    For my collection of stories, The Stranger Project – est. 2014, I go out and meet strangers, hear their stories, and then write about them. It doesn’t get any easier, but tapping in to my own vulnerability, my willingness to face rejection, and my new-found ability to not take it all personally, I rise to these challenges every time.

    The three examples you used of ‘unblocking activities’ only made me want to hear about the other 47! I make the rules and play within them daily. Thank you Danielle, as Mark said, you were speaking directly to me

    I look forward to exploring TJC further, and regularly!

    be well


  757. the jealous curator /// 04.04.2015 /// 10:40pm

    wow! thank you so much colin… that totally made my night! your project sounds amazing! i’ve bookmarked it and i’m going to go back and read everything tomorrow.
    ps. so amazing that you’re that open and vulnerable with strangers. don’t know if i could do it!

  758. Jack Breakfast /// 04.08.2015 /// 8:02am

    Fond greetings! I have created an overstuffed and obsessive ode to the good common birds of Toronto, and elsewhere. It is unorthodox avian art photography, maybe, and there is writing there too. Anyhow, I submit it to you with respect and admiration for what you do:

  759. the jealous curator /// 04.08.2015 /// 9:03am

    I have been enjoying your site for a few years now. Wonderful finds! Very inspirational!
    I am an artist myself, so certainly understand the feeling of “Damn. I wish i thought of that.”

    Maybe you would be interesting in my newest piece. Its called the Unconscious Library. Made entirely from paper (Apart from the bottles) and contains over 100,000 paper elements. Has taken roughly a year to complete. http://www.lovejordan.net/TheUnconsciousLibrary.html

    Looking forward to seeing more posts from you,
    All the best!

  765. Julie /// 04.14.2015 /// 11:29am

    I just came across your blog actually through listening to the Being Boss podcast. I just wanted to tell you how wonderful your message and honesty is, and how much it resonated with me. As someone who is trying to launch my own design and art collaboration business while also navigating self doubt, and jealousy, and admiration, and motivation and well…life all at the same time, it really is so nice to hear other people that I admire are feeling and dealing with the same emotions. Thank you for sharing, and writing and creating!

    Many thanks,

  766. the jealous curator /// 04.14.2015 /// 11:48am

    Hi Danielle,

    I love your blog TJC – I hope to be as good a writer as you one day!

    I’m emailing you because I represent a number of very talented artists
    (many of whom are women) and I thought I’d get you to take a peek over at
    http://wallhop.com – we do conduct interviews with our artists as well
    over on our glimpse section. If you think it fits with the content on your

    Hi there. I came across your site after reading a well written write up of yours. I think there is a good chance you would like my work.
    I’ve been off the art world’s radar for the most part appearing only in small time galleries but I feel I’m closer to emerging on a national or even international level in the next several years. Perhaps you can help. People really respond to my sculptures and I’m excited to share them with a larger audience.

  770. Eyevan Tumbleweed /// 04.21.2015 /// 8:54am

    Please check out works from my 2nd found wood faces series at http://www.eyevantumbleweed.com
    More sculptures and photos exist but I have yet to do a more advanced photo shoot. If you would like to see more please contact me. My site will give you the gist of the medium.

  774. Richard Mendtorr /// 04.23.2015 /// 11:41am

    Hi JCurator! i’m an artist that does photorealistic oil paintings with a surreal twist, they have been labeled as Subversive by some curators, i’d like to know what you think of them if you have a minute to take a peek at them 🙂


    P.S. I LOVE the honest insight you display on your blog;)

  775. Emily Filler /// 04.24.2015 /// 10:36am

    I have followed you for awhile on Instagram but I had never come to check out your site. You’ve found some amazing things! And it’s nice to see multiple photos and get a bit of a write up on the artist (since on Instagram it’s just the one shot). Lots of people showcase art but I think you have something really innovative and fresh. As an artist I appreciate how thoughtful your site is!

    If you’d like to see what I paint my work can be found at emilyfiller.com

    Thanks again!


  776. the jealous curator /// 04.25.2015 /// 10:56am

  777. Brooke /// 04.25.2015 /// 11:06am

    I’ve been a long time fan of your blog! I am an artist & an educator and you are constantly introducing me to such talented Contemporary artists that I love sharing with my peers and students. I’ve been working collaboratively in performance & video for many years but I have recently returned to my love of painting and am having my first solo show! I wanted to share what I’ve been working on with you,
    Thanks again, love what you’re doing!

  778. Molly /// 05.04.2015 /// 7:49am

    Your blog has been one of my favorite parts of the day for the past couple of years. I love seeing new work from all over the world every day while I work towards my BFA. I’m graduating in a couple of days and then I’ll be at SAIC working on my MFA. I love seeing what you have to say about all the artists. You are so encouraging and thoughtful!

    Thanks for sharing!
    (the work from my BFA show is on my site)

    I just came across your blog on Instagram. You have a really great selection of artworks on there.
    I wanted to show you my work, and see if you like it, to eventually get fetaured.
    Looking forwards to your thoughts.

    All the best,

  782. KM Seeber /// 05.08.2015 /// 11:21am

    Love, love your blog. I am also a huge fan of Jennifer Sanchez. I was wondering if her inspiration is rooted in the work of Beatriz Milhazes, a Brazilian painter. The work of Ms. Milhazes was a huge inspiration for my paintings, although lean toward a raw, urban influence. If you would like to see my paintings and contemporary, see http://www.urbantheorystudios.com. I will continue to follow!

  783. Alexa Heenan /// 05.11.2015 /// 2:04pm

    I absolutely LOVE your blog!!! I’ve never been much for blogs but yours keeps me coming back each day to discover new and amazing artists. I’ve just finished my Art history degree and would love to go into curating, especially the work of emerging artists. I’m so glad I came across your blog because it has been so inspirational! Thank you 🙂


  784. the jealous curator /// 05.11.2015 /// 3:21pm

    wow – what a compliment! thanks so much alexa! good luck with your own curation (it’s a pretty fantastic job!)

  785. Ben Z. /// 05.14.2015 /// 11:19pm

    Hi Danielle,

    You have a wonderful blog and curatorial eye! Thanks for featuring artist Chris Turnham who we featured earlier this year in our gallery. This May 23 we are exhibiting art by Elle Michalka who was an art director on the cartoon Steven Universe and is also friends with Chris. Her work is reminiscent of Eyvind Earle, Grant Wood and other mid century american painters but with a contemporary sensibility.

    You can see some of her work here:

    and a link to her event here:

    Thanks for the inspiring blog!

  786. Larissa Johnson Brown /// 05.21.2015 /// 3:16pm

    As a young girl I struggled (and still do) with jealousy over others’ confidence and security in their art and selves. I dropped out of Art School at 20 years old because I was so convinced of my failure that would eventually be exposed because I was surrounded by so many amazing talents! I couldn’t see it in myself. I am now a 45 year old adult woman who has lived and grown to find the love for myself that allows my jealousy to turn into inspiration. Within the last couple of years I have begun filling my world with art and creation again. I started my own shop online and am loving my work with fabric. I would love to inspire other jealous artists to create and love art! And themselves. I wish I could go back and finish my time at Pratt where I received a partial scholarship as a National arts Scholarship recipient. The older me is jealous of that girl. The younger me is jealous of the older me confidence! C’est la vie!

  790. Kathryn Cowen /// 05.26.2015 /// 4:48am

    Hello there,
    I wanted to thank you for all the time and energy you put into creating such an interesting blog. I often trawl though it when in a painting slump, looking for inspiration. Thank you for sharing your finds and inspiring me and so many others.

    I have a show opening next week in Sydney, Australia (June 3-20, 2015) – The Faraway Nearby. It is my second solo exhibition, and I must say I have a healthy set of butterflies nervously fluttering around at the moment!


    All the Best,

  791. Stephanie Todhunter /// 05.26.2015 /// 5:54am

    I’ve been reading your blog for years and I look always look forward to discovering new artists and new processes. I thought I would gather my courage and share with you my latest project, described on the website jeromestreetstudios.com. I also have a website: stephanietodhunter.com
    Yikes, self promotion is scary…

  792. the jealous curator /// 05.26.2015 /// 9:18am

    ha! yes it is… i’m terrible at self promotion, so yay for you for doing it!!! popping over to look right now : )

  793. Will Hoffman /// 05.26.2015 /// 10:42am


    Just stumbled upon your blog last week and thought my work could be an interesting fit. Particularly, I just finished a film project called “Lover” which is an attempt to make a film about sex that is actually heartfelt and emotionally honest.

    So often, filmmaking distorts the reality of sex on screen. It’s either insincere, over the top, or just flat out vulgar. 

    Spending time with real couples in long-term relationships, this film is an attempt to capture intimacy, true connection, and the revelation of falling deep for somebody else.

    Have a look: https://vimeo.com/128834503

    All the best,

  794. Katelyn Gagnon /// 05.27.2015 /// 9:37am

    Good Afternoon JC!
    I represent Robert Deyber, an artist that for the last several years has explored the realm of surrealism. His work predominately features the visual interpretation of idioms, euphemisms and cliches which creates a unique and almost interactive quality to Robert’s paintings. After coming across your wonderful blog I think his aesthetic would go well with the focus of your website and the audience that follows it.

    Here’s a link to Robert’s website that also includes a frequently updated online portfolio.


    Any additional information can gladly be answered through the email address provided, I hope if you get a chance to look that you enjoy his work!

    Warm regards,


  795. Jürgen Novotny /// 05.30.2015 /// 3:16am

    love your blog and the idea behind it 🙂 Maybe you’re interested in my “CameraSelfies” series which – in the meantime – has been featured by CNN, LUI magazine, LensCulture & currently on the cover of german photography magazine ProfiFoto. The idea: what if our cameras grew tired of pointing only at us? After all, these poor lenses can only take in so many pouty lips, sideways smiles, theatrical winks and staged kisses. What would it look like if the photo cameras decided to take their own selfies for a change? On background of contemporary wallpapers? 🙂


    Perhaps you’ll like the one or the other 🙂
    Greetings from Germany & all the best for your cool blog,
    Jürgen (Novotny)

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I think you have a great eye. It is great to have spaces like TJC, where we discover those amazing artists hand by hand with you.
    I would love to know what you think about my work…. (I feel totally awkward doing self promotion)

  798. the jealous curator /// 06.01.2015 /// 8:13pm

    thanks so much vitoria : ) … i’m going over to look right now!

  799. Zita Bebenroth /// 06.02.2015 /// 3:49am

    Wow, what a wonderful selection of gorgeousness. I feel like a jealous curator sometimes too; that’s why I started my blog & agency Roth Illustration, for art and illustration talent from Rotterdam, Holland. Hope you’ll get inspired by the work of these 10 fantastic artists! (Well, actually there are 11, but Trompette de la Mort works as a duo 🙂

    Thanks so much in advance for your reaction!

    Bye, Zita

    Just chanced upon your blog while looking through the Land of Nod kids art and happy I did! Love your writing style and just the whole premise!
    I wonder if there might be something of interest on my husbands art shop that might catch your attention when curating the kids line or for your own blog? I’m a big fan of the Chaplin, Miles and the Piano Man, if I can say so myself:)

    im currently working on a project for one of the classes im taking this term, about social media and its place/effect on the art world. i was wondering if you’d be willing to tell me about your experience with the blog, and maybe answer some questions as well?
    if you are, is there an email address i could contact you at?
    thank you so much for your time (:

  803. the jealous curator /// 06.04.2015 /// 10:16pm

    Hi JC,

    I love the modern aesthetic of your blog – I’ve recently launched a Kickstarter for an idea to which we often here ‘I wish I’d thought of that!’
    It’s called Susheco – it’s a reusable sushi container – collapsible, slim and transportable (It becomes about the size of an ipad).
    Would love to hear your thoughts about it

    I’d like to submit the work of a good friend of mine named Kajola Morewood, an Inuit artist and Emily Carr grad based in Vancouver. Thought you might want to take a look at her amazing map/drum series at http://www.kajolamorewood.com/

    Hello Jealous Curator, its very awesome and inspirational to see the huge support you provide to emerging artists, a lot of them unfortunately dont have the exposure they deserve because their environment doesnt present much opportunities, there arent enough galeries or institutions that grant help for artists that are newcomers, or many other reasons, so its a very cool and refreshing idea to create websites where we can share great art through the internet, i tell you this because im on the path to become a curator, the art i have found while searching on the internet has left me very excited and motivated… and even a little jealous too 🙂 i understand completely the feeling when i look at the creations of talented artists, such as this one that does amazing oil paintings http://mendtorr.com/
    i just discovered him recently and plan on having him as one of the featured artists in a website im developing to also showcase the works of skillful young painters and sculptures, your blog has been a big inspiration and i’ll continue to visit regularly, thank you in advance and please take care.

    Who can I summit the work of Mr.Black Brain?

    The works of Ariel Vergez aka. Mr. Black Brain is about vivid graphics wave of comics to be enjoyed and combined it with a large dose of knowledge, consciousness and history all wrapped up in one. The work itself is a unique hybrid of painting through many mediums. It is made up of layers of wood, canvas, and fine prints, which gives contradiction between the flatness of a fine pint, wood and canvas giving his work a three-dimensional feel.

    Hello The Jealous Curator 🙂

    Really happy to have stumbling across your page (via pinterest btw) It was through the post of Anne Lindberg’s installation work, ‘Placemakers’. Incredible creator she is!! What beautiful and tedious work! Would have loved to seen this in person. You have a wonderful eye for art and I thoroughly enjoy checking out who your new posts are about 🙂

    I want to drop you my blog site, which has a few new works Ive recently completed. Photography is my medium. The most recent topic posts are done in double exposure and fine art, also a bit of pop art. Following those posts are a lot of travel photography. However I would just like to point out the newest posts 🙂 Take a look if you have the chance.

    Keep on ‘arting’ it!

    I updated my website with some new work since then and I’d like to share it with you! http://www.priscillayu.ca/

    Dear Jealous Curator,

    Greetings from the far far Asia! I stumbled upon your site recently. Love the idea behind it, love how it’s all put together – simple, classy… and very well written! I will definitely bookmark it.

    Recently, I have launched a Sketchbook project on Kickstarter in collaboration with another 2 very talented artist from South East Asia, Kerby Rosanes and Vince Low, the project is called TIGA | Sketchooks with Beauty, Art & Soul. Three of us (which is Tiga in the Malay Language) have contributed our art (and our soul) into this refined collection of sketchbooks, notebooks, and art prints. – all designed to share our passion of illustration to the world to inspire one’s own creative journey.

    Please do spend a little time to check out the link

    I assure that you’ll find at least one piece or art (24 pieces in total) that will blow your mind away and perhaps get a little ‘jealous’ of 🙂 Would love to know what you think about it.

    I have a friend who is an organic abstract artist who works on wood and aluminum. Her pieces make me feel like I’m looking at the cosmos, tropical waters and ancient bedrock (you’ll see what I mean when you look!) I haven’t seen any work like it before and would love to pass a note to her of what you think! ChantalBarlow.com is where you can find her work.

  839. Lannie Hart /// 08.02.2015 /// 12:52pm

    I just found your blog on Pinterest. The work you show is mind blowing and yes very jealousy provoking. But my jealousy is a little different. I am an “older” artist. I have been creating my whole life but did not have the time till now (retired from making $$$) to spend it on my art. What I am jealous of is time. I wish I had more life ahead of me to put into creating. The work is so different and exciting now. An artist now can use any media to produce art. I started years ago in what was called Soft Sculpture and that was considered a ” craft” and not art. Now there are no boundaries. Thanks for this wonderful blog.

  840. the jealous curator /// 08.02.2015 /// 3:11pm

    i get that… but now you have lots of TIME! i still have to work every day and squeeze in art when i can… i’m jealous of you! good luck, have fun, and enjoy every second!

  853. Mary Mooney /// 08.11.2015 /// 2:35pm

    Hi Jealous (?) !

    I found you through Pinterest a few years ago, and have been following you ever since! I love the concept, and as a maker have definitely felt that pang when I see something truly inspiring. But, after many years of making I think I’ve finally hit a good stride with my work, and creating pieces that really feel authentic to who I am as an artist AND as a person. Now, I’m working to make it my livelyhood.

    It’s been difficult to reconcile the shiny temptation of the gallery world, with what else I actually need to do to pay my rent. But the combination I’ve struck has me hopeful–I’m a painter using thick acrylic sheeting as my canvas, and from the remnants of working in conventional shapes I make miniature painted pendants of wearable art jewelry.

    I can’t thank you enough for offering sympathy with my frustrations earlier on. It felt great to know someone else, too, was jealous and kicking themselves SO hard.

    There is such an interesting array of genres here, and I really appreciate what you’re brining to the internet.

    Art Kid Love!
    Mary Mooney

    I am quite new to this…it would mean a lot to me!

    Hi! I have always been a huge fan of your curation and wanted to reach out about this new project I’m working on called Quarterly Editions, where fans could subscribe directly to their favorite artists and receive unique art in the mail.

    We’re launching David Saracino, Alonzo Felix, and Lotta Nieminen this week. I thought your readers would be interested in this type of service and I would also love your suggestions for artists/illustrations/designers you think would be a great fit for Editions as well! We’re constantly looking for artists on the rise.

    Thank you so much !

  870. Pierre-Paul Pariseau /// 09.04.2015 /// 6:35am


    Your curating great works, you put some lights on very interesting people, very inspiring artists.

    Hey there!

    Just started listening to your podcast and love it! I definitely felt the same way about my art history classes; give me the juicy details! Have you stumbled upon a podcast that have your approach but focus on non-contemporary pieces? Thanks for any recommendations!

  873. the jealous curator /// 09.04.2015 /// 8:44pm

    thanks angelica! i haven’t heard of a podcast like that, but i’ll keep my ears open and let you know ; )

    Dear jealous curator,
    You featured my work last year, I was so happy. I wanted to show you a new series of animated gifs, hope you will like them 🙂


  876. Niki Havekost /// 09.07.2015 /// 8:54am

    Hi Danielle…I somehow just discovered your site and podcast…the podcast makes my early morning workouts so much more manageable! Thank you for finding and featuring fabulous contemporary art. My son started full day school a couple of years ago, and I’m back in the studio. I wondered if you might check out my work at http://nikimade.com? I make little doll like figures whose limbs are found objects, and I am just starting to change scale in larger installation pieces. If you had a moment, I would love for you to see it. Thank you so much for creating a place where we can discover, grow and thrive as artists! Best wishes, niki

  877. Erin /// 09.07.2015 /// 3:02pm

    Hi Jealous Art Curator!
    I just found you on instagram and love your eye. Thought I’d pass along my website for you to check out.



  878. Cassandra /// 09.08.2015 /// 1:55pm

    Hello! I am so happy I found your blog (thank you to my professor and Visual News!). I am currently a sophomore in college! My major is Arts Management (looking into concentrations in History, or Anthropology, and possibly a minor in psych?) My first assignment for my Writing in the Arts class is to find someone in the arts who I find inspiring, that helps me shape my own vision for my career path. I am so inspired by you already for numerous reasons. I would like to work in a museum one day, whether contemporary art, or a natural history museum- I’m not entirely sure yet. The jealously you felt before it turned to inspiration is something I can say I have felt in the past. Just this week, after seeing some beautiful pieces, I started painting again. After also being confused on what to do with my future, I am now actively moving towards a possible future with museums. I have always wanted to be an author since I was little (I have four books that need editing but I have them, and I hope one day to share them with the world). While it is a different subject from what you have written, I still find it incredibly amazing, and I am looking into your books now as well. I just wanted to share this with you, and tell you how inspiring I have found this blog, and you obviously ahah!, to be 🙂 which is why I will most definitely be mentioning it in my paper. Keep doing what you’re doing!

  879. the jealous curator /// 09.08.2015 /// 6:52pm

    oh, thanks so much cassandra – i’m so flattered! good luck with all of the exciting learning/choices ahead of you!

  880. Julien NONNON /// 09.09.2015 /// 5:51am



    I invite you to discover SAFARI URBAIN / PARISIAN WILDLIFE, a new experience of street art in the streets of Paris.

    Website : http://www.juliennonnon.com

    Press-Kit : http://www.juliennonnon.com/press-kit/

    Making of : https://vimeo.com/138538587

    Safari Map : https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=zfQOJsHHJaWw.khr9-_irnDpw


    It is a very strange and surprising vision of the Parisian wildlife that offers us the French artist Julien Nonnon. In his last work SAFARI URBAIN, a series of photographs featuring animals redesigned and projected on facades of buildings through an embedded video-projection system. A clever mix of street-art and video-mapping, all made during a new night getaway in the streets of Paris.

    Thank you for your attention.

    Hi TJC,

    Great blog! I’ve been working on a series of 3×3 inch paintings of New York and thought I’d pass them along. You can check out my website or my Instagram at @dl_warren. Let me know what you think. Thanks!


  882. Amanda Schoppel /// 09.10.2015 /// 11:40am

    Hello Danielle,

    I’ve just found your blog/podcast (can’t believe that it’s taken so long!?)
    Just wanted to pass along congratulations, and thanks for being a great resource. Your podcasts (along with art critical), keep me happy company in the Studio.

    If I may be so bold… perhaps you may be interested in my work?
    I would love to know what you think.

    I hope September treats you kindly.

  883. Ura Jones /// 09.20.2015 /// 10:06am

    Dear Danielle,
    As a new fan of Creative Mornings Vancouver, I unfortunately missed your very entertaining and valuable talk on Humility. I listen to it now. Often. Especially when I am drawing things. As an untrained artist, I took a huge step forward in humility this year – and launched my e-portfolio website!
    If you would be so kind – http://www.mavenbest.com is my gathering of artworks. I hope they will resonate with you. I am proud, but humble, afraid but fearless. And you inspire me and make me laugh!
    Deep Thanks – Ura Jones.

  884. Saskia Fernando /// 09.20.2015 /// 9:25pm

    We love your blog and you recently featured one of our artists, Scott Gardiner.

  885. Sam Dean Lynn /// 09.21.2015 /// 10:39am

    Hey TJC!! Wow your blog is SO cool! I came across it after seeing your feature on one of my friends, the illustrator Aimee Bee Brooks. Then I got sucked in and kept browsing the archives – I particularly love Lisa Wright’s paintings. I’ve never seen them before. I’m an illustrator too, and wanted to pass along a link to my site – http://www.samdeanlynn.com. A feature would be amazing, but regardless keep up the good work 🙂 Your new fan, Sam

  886. Rachael Rickwood /// 09.23.2015 /// 5:26am

    Good Afternoon,

    I have been a fan of your blog for a while now, it’s full of beautiful work. My husband and I have recently started a gallery together in a small town called Whitley Bay in the North East of England http://www.rickwoodsgallery.co.uk

    Our first exhibition is of the work of the amazing Carolynne Coulson http://www.carolynnecoulson.co.uk/original-paintings/ Her abstract paintings are stunning and we would love it if you would have a look at them.

    Thanks for all the inspiring posts and for Creative Block, I’ve found it really helpful with my own work.

    Hi Jealous,

    Your podcast has been keeping me company in my studio, it inspires and pushes me along. I love hearing about other artists journeys and processes, thank you for that! I know you are one busy lady, but of course would love for you to review my work – loganledford.com. Have a wonderful week!

    thanks logan… i’ll take a peek!

    Please don’t change the name of your blog. It’s perfect. The second I saw it, I trusted you. And you have lived up to that trust. What wonderful work you’ve spotlighted. Hope you continue. thanks.

  891. the jealous curator /// 09.30.2015 /// 12:26am

    wow. what a compliment! thanks becky : )

    Hey Danielle!
    First time caller long time listener here 🙂 I really dig your blog and podcast.
    I thought you might enjoy this short documentary portrait about LA artist/designer Geoff McFetridge my company just finished: https://vimeo.com/140662506
    Thanks, Dan

  893. the jealous curator /// 09.30.2015 /// 8:15pm

    ooh, cool! thanks dan!

  894. joey harrison /// 10.02.2015 /// 8:46pm

    Hi Danielle,
    I’ve been following your website for a few months now with great pleasure. If this isn’t obnoxious, I’d like to give you a link to an artist that I think you’d like: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lampiman/
    I just discovered him tonight and thought his work would fit perfectly in your curated virtual gallery.

    BTW, I’ve just curated my own show — a photo show. It’s been a real gas, and really a great opportunity to think carefully about / look carefully at the photos I’m presenting.

    Keep up the great work. You’re very inspiring both in what you show and how you express yourself creatively.

  895. the jealous curator /// 10.02.2015 /// 10:43pm

    thanks so much joey – going to check you both out right now 🙂

  896. Liz /// 10.04.2015 /// 8:23pm

    I’ve followed your blog for a couple of years, and while I’m not a visual artist, the art you share tugs at me. I’ve really enjoyed the peeks at a more contemporary style from what I see often around me and it has expanded my idea of what I like. Thank you for that.

    One of my brothers is an artist (http://www.artpal.com/jeffatnip/), and although his style is more traditional, it has a freshness that perhaps approaches a contemporary aspect. Some of his works appeal to me more than others, and I think it may be a bit of modernity applied to some of his traditional subjects that appeals to me.

    I’m getting him your book for his (belated) birthday. I know he will love it. Thanks again.

  897. Rebeka Dove /// 10.05.2015 /// 2:37am

    Hi there Danielle,
    I have recently discovered your blog (cant quite remember how!!!), and get art for my inbox every week..I live in rural France with my partner and kids …living the good life… which can feel culturally remote and isolated sometimes, so its great to get to see the work you post from other artists all over the world … thanks 🙂
    I am a budding photographer… my passion is the colour, form and texture in the natural world… if you get a chance please come over and check out my website: http://www.pinkcatphoto.com or my facebook page : http://www.facebook.com/pinkcatphotographie
    my best wishes from France

    I´ve been following your blog for years and would love to show you my latest series Notes on a Place. http://www.kimmometsaranta.com/project/notes-on-a-place/
    Have a great day 🙂


  901. the jealous curator /// 10.09.2015 /// 9:04am

    wow! lovely kimmo!

  902. Lourdes Sanchez /// 10.10.2015 /// 8:56am

    First- Wow! Much admiration, big appreciation, and thankfulness for what I have learned and been exposed through your work- The quality is so consistantly so high that it is a dearly valued resource-
    You featured some of my work way back in early 2012, which was also very appreciated-
    I just want to clear up one thing- I have never produced fabric! I worked as a a surface designer for many years, and then the design blogs then the Pinterest train ran amok with people pinning my work under Fabric! Patterns!
    I used to do original paintings that I then sold to to large companies, untill I reached a point in my life when I could focus on my fine art work full time-

    (you could see some of my work here if you have a moment:http://www.searspeyton.com/artist/Lourdes_Sanchez%20(Watercolor)/works/#!5066)

    I have seen a few times online were people were complaining about not being able to buy my ¨fabrics¨or ¨prints¨online, but I never said I had any to sell in the first place!
    Anyway, just wanted to clear that up because being typecast as a ¨fabric¨ designer makes me feel sad
    and lonely!

    Much respect

  903. the jealous curator /// 10.10.2015 /// 9:17am

    ah! i’m so sorry! yes, i probably found you under textiles somewhere and just assumed that as well… i edited the post! : ) thanks for getting in touch

    Great blog!

    Love to see some familiar names ( Laurent Craste or Myriam Dion) and discovered some great artists like Keith Lemley ( that’s just pure talent!)

    Not a lot of conceptual art though (ok, I might be preaching for my parish 😉 )

    All the best

  910. Beth Robinson /// 10.24.2015 /// 11:11am

    Thank you for the great blog while supporting art and artists.

    All the Best,


  911. Nico Lund /// 10.28.2015 /// 9:21am


    Just happened upon you blog. What a great concept! I think most artists can relate to feeling that ‘wish I’d thought of that’ feeling. But, alas, we are compelled to create what we create, otherwise it wouldn’t be honest. Love the tidy art you have up now…can’t say I’ve ever been accused of being too tidy, but can appreciate it all the more.

    I’d love it if you popped onto my site to see what my creativity spins.

    I look forward to falling farther down the rabbit hole on your site and find more things to be jealous of!


  912. Eva Redamonti /// 10.28.2015 /// 3:43pm


    Your blog has inspired me all summer and beyond, thank you for sharing your eye for great art.
    I would like to submit my work if you have a minute to look at it.



  913. Manuel Pablo Pace /// 10.29.2015 /// 7:21am

    Hello Jealous Curator,
    first of all thank you for this wonderful blog!
    I finally decided to write to you;) My name is Manuel Pablo Pace, is a painter – portraitist Italian and I live in a small town near Venice.
    I wanted to point my last solo exhibition in Paris, which was inaugurated on October 15, at the gallery Blacks Contemporary Art, where I presented 25 works, including four new unpublished works that are part of the cycle The ALLEGORIES LOVE.
    is a reinterpretation of the 4 allegories of Paolo Caliari, called Veronese.
    4 are oils on linen 100×150 cm respectively, changing the frame reminiscent of the 35mm film.
    The landscapes proposed come from nature and from the woods that surround my office, placed in a valley near Venice.
    Available for any questions or further information, I would be very grateful for the publication.
    Best regards

  914. Hannah /// 10.29.2015 /// 8:35am

    Just listened to episode 55 of Tiffany Han’s podcast and so loved hearing your perspective. Also having been the kid wearing the matching sweater set that didn’t fit in at art school – it was just so fascinating to hear your story and I’m so glad that it led me to checking out your site!

  917. Zachary Tuttle /// 10.30.2015 /// 4:58pm

    Hi Jealous Curator!

    I’m a long time fan of your site and enjoy seeing a fellow human being be as passionate about sharing artistic beauty and creativity with the rest of the world as we are.

    I just wanted to let you know about our company’s subscription box which seeks to do the very same thing your blog does–bring authentic creativity to the world and support hard-working and talented artists.

    Every 3 months we send subscribers limited-edition, autographed art prints from emerging and established artists. We also include a limited-run t-shirt designed by an artist, stickers and other fun stuff. You can see our past box examples here. https://artbotic.com/past.php

    Each box is only $65 right now, which is a great deal for gallery-quality, collectible art that’s limited and autographed. And our feedback has been AMAZING.

    Just thought I’d let you know in case you are looking for boxes to include in any future posts.


  918. Sára /// 11.01.2015 /// 8:52am

    Scrolling through the comments people leave, I’m in awe of how kind, supportive, and engaged you are with the people who are so inspired by you and want to reach out on a limb. You’re changing the artist-curator relationship and it’s so wonderful to watch. What an exciting time to be involved in the art world. Also, your podcast is truly wonderful — please never stop! There’s nothing more inspiring to me as an artist to listen to two people who love and create art talk about it. Swoon!

  919. the jealous curator /// 11.01.2015 /// 9:18am

    oh, thank you so much sara! this online space has become a wonderful home for me… and yes, the people who come here everyday are amazing! i’m truly honored that they want to come along for the ride ; )

    Hi Danielle!

    My name is thierry and I’m a long time fan, first time ‘caller’.
    I would be incredibly grateful if you would take a look at my work. Shameless self promotion! I’m an emerging artist who could use all of the exposure and advice I can get, especially as I don’t actually have a proper name for what I do. Pop pointillism? Epoxy dot art?
    I’ll leave this with you!

    Thanks a million!

    Howdy! I am totally in love with your website and I just started the Creative Block book as well. I’m forever in love with “the object on the white page” and thought maybe you’d like to see some of my stuff? Mostly pencil/watercolor with the latest being my “40 songs 40 years” sampler I did for my birthday (http://www.meganlovestodraw.com/40-years-40-songs/). Also, I do portraiture – including a series of roller derby teammates wherein the paper had been “toned” by having them skate on it. Anyway, I hope you enjoy! xo http://www.meganlovestodraw.com

  927. Jana /// 11.12.2015 /// 12:20pm

    Hey Danielle!
    I’m an artist from Germany, and right now I’m writing on something which considers the plain “beauty” and “uglyness” in art, and how this aesthetic claim develops in our lives.
    And ever since I know your website, the first thing I notice on my mind is “oh my god, how amazinlgy beautiful is that”
    Maybe you could write me a mail with a few thought regarding this!that would be just simply very nice 🙂
    have a great weekend,

  928. Abi Jones /// 11.13.2015 /// 12:34pm

    Hiya :)! Genuinely in love with your mind, the pieces of art you choose to blog about are just my style…currently failing art at the moment but your blog has deffo given me a good push and something to think about. Some of the pieces that you recommend highly I have decided to use as part of my coursework it is so inspirational and to hear your views really puts some of the pieces into perspective and shows me new ways to explore them through art, please continue to share your views with us who have no vivid imagination or eye when it comes to great art.
    Thanks again, you have really helped me 🙂

I would be so glad if you get few time to have a little look to my stuffs. I am not a talker.. but maybe my art would speak about me a bit deeper :).

    I’ve made a new series of work entitled “Inside-out Paintings” in which the mistakes and repaints that occur and then are covered up within the pigment layers are exposed as the outward surface. I’d be very glad if you checked it out:


    Thank you for your consideration and good luck in your endeavors!

    Hi there,

    Thanks so much for always providing great artists and photos to check out! I follow your blog as part of my research for my own work.

    I also wanted to shamelessly note that I’m currently working on a large-scale knitted installation with a partial grant from the Surface Design Association. To fill in gaps in funding, I’ve created a kickstarter campaign that can be found here https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2093802049/make-a-mark-an-ever-changing-art-installation?ref=email. I hope you’ll consider checking it out.

    Thanks so much! Happy curating 🙂

    Hi Danielle,
    I wanted to thank you again for including my work in the upcoming Fresh Paint magazine edition. I’ve been meaning to write to you anyway to tell you how much I love your podcast. It’s super inspiring and you are a lot of fun to listen to. Thanks again for everything you do to support artists. And your collage work is really beautiful, by the way.

    SO COOL, I think you would really like it. I love love love the podcast, so inspiring, it’s a creative block un-blocker in and of itself. Thanks for everything you are doing, it has opened up a lot of art to so many people. I’m jealous!

  938. the jealous curator /// 11.23.2015 /// 8:23pm

    Hi Danielle! I love the work you are doing–ALL of it! I’m jealous, inspired and get a community feeling when I listen to your podcasts! OMG Making art is hard! And now I know it’s hard for everyone, not just me 🙂

    I would love for you to check out my friends work. We shared a studio for 3 years and she is the bomb! I’m so J of her! Hope you like it. (I didn’t tell her I’m doing this because that’s what jealous people do– they creep). Xoxo!

    Hello Danielle,
    I’ve been following you on Pinterest for a few years now and secretly hoping you’d see my work and be a little jealous and feature me on your blog. I see here that people write in and introduce themselves. If you would take a moment and have a look at my website, I would be delighted. I really love your blog.
    Thank you,
    Tess Felix

    Hello Danielle,
    I was overdosing on your podcast and heard you mention the whole how to price your own art thingie a couple of times. I thought I’d share my experimental (and almost scientifical) method. Spolier alert- it might involve cows.

    Here’s the experiment explanation http://www.bit.ly/1LRd4vL
    And the results/conclusions http://www.bit.ly/1lyHj5q

    (Hope those links are ok, ipad wouldn’t let me copy paste and I just typed them in).
    Hugs from a super fan in Belgium!

  949. the jealous curator /// 12.03.2015 /// 9:13am

    haha! YES! so smart maria!

  950. Megan Pizzitola /// 12.03.2015 /// 3:11pm

    Wonderful website! I am an emerging artist, and I would love if you would check out some of my artwork and consider it for a feature on your blog (or anywhere!).

    I post almost daily on Instagram: @pizzazzdesign – which has the most comprehensive gallery of my work. You can also find example of my work here:

    I look forward to hearing from you! 🙂


  951. Victor Robert /// 12.04.2015 /// 4:22pm

    Hi JealousC,

    I came across your website when my friend Brooks was featured on it a little bit ago, and now I check it regularly for inspiration.

    I’m an aspiring children’s book illustrator and I recently documented the making my first storybook, Brian Wonders, through a series of online journal entries. Would love to share the book and the blog with any of your readers interested in publishing a book on their own. The journal uses early sketches, photographs and time-lapse videos to shine a light on the process of making a storybook. I’m leaving you a link to the book’s website below:


    All the best!

    of course shari! and thank you ; )

  955. Lori mirmesdagh /// 12.12.2015 /// 9:31am

    Thank you for what you do. I would like to suggest an artist. I am on a public arts committee in a small city. Art is a hard subject here since it is mostly a working /blue collar town. This artist is amazing and caught my eye years ago. Her name is Barbara Schaffer. Please look at her work and maybe you will see what I see in it. I see movement.

  956. Carissa /// 12.12.2015 /// 6:34pm

    Hello! Love you blog, and always enjoy your podcast as well! I just wanted to suggest an artist for you – her name is Johanna Wilbraham. She is a UK artist now based in Melbourne, Australia. She does large-scale portraits in oil, but uses the oil in a way that has a similar effect to watercolour. They are stunning!

    Here is her website if you’d like to take a look:


    Hope you love it!

    I WISH I DISCOVERED YOU BEFORE I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE! I can literally relate to what you mean. I used to think that “jealousy” is only in me and sometimes I felt weird about it.

    My comment will probably get ignored, but it’s still worth a shot.

    It would mean the world if you went and checked out my work. My work mostly revolves around my love for doodling and digital art.


    Here’s the website. I hope you check it out!!

    Hey there Ms. Curator! I really enjoy following your blog and instagram…you always have the most amazing stuff up. Sometimes I share with my students the artwork and artists you write about, as I am an art teacher—but I’m trying to work more on my personal artwork and thought you might like to take a look at my new website and/or my instagram @artgirlsy. You might remember me because I applied to Fresh Paint Magazine when you curated! Thanks, Happy New Year*** Jamia

    Hello Jealous Curator 🙂

    A few months ago when I stumbled upon your website, I laughed at first with your honesty towards your own jealousy and found it refreshing. Then, of course, I wished I could be doing something about my very own artsy jealousy.

    For some time now, I’ve been thinking of launching a blog / website about inspirational things I find online mostly dedicated to videogames, art and design. I would love to know how do you keep finding new stuff and if you have any advice regarding that that you would like to share.

    I realize nowadays people must fill your e-mail inbox asking for you to look at their work but, how did you get started at first?

    Thank you and congrats on this wonderful project!

    Joana Maltez

  965. the jealous curator /// 01.04.2016 /// 10:31am

    hi joana – in the beginning i just spent a TON of time online looking for work that i loved… i still do in fact : ) now a lot of my content comes from people submitting their work, which is great! a lot less legwork ; ) mind you, i still spend hours on pinterest, gallery sites, and looking at the link love lists on artists sites (if you find an artist you like, chances are they’ll be friends/admirers of other artists whose work you’ll like too) good luck!

    Hello Jealous Curator,

    As a photographer recently interested in collage, I must admit I have been enjoying your collage-a-day on Instagram. Your color pallet and subject matter are rather aligned with my interests; but I believe I might enjoy your ‘titles’ even more. I’d love for you to check out my current collage attempts (@allieellisphotography) and let me know what you think.

I am currently finishing up a 6 year project, dealing with time, space, memory and the Universe. I create cosmic retro designs with glitter!

    Hi Danielle,

    I have been following you on your blog and Instagram for a while, but I just heard your interview on Smart Creative Women (yeah, I’m a few weeks behind) and it just made me burst out in tears. I started grad school for painting many years ago and had an advisor who was leaving that year and he was just totally un-invested in my work, he didn’t care what I did — until, at the end of the year, he sat me down and “suggested” that I clean out my studio (though this was not coming from the head of the program, just him, I later came to find out). Regardless, it destroyed me. I changed paths, left art, and even got a degree in theatrical costume design. But all I really wanted to do was paint. It took almost 7 years from that grad school experience until I had confidence again to attempt my own art again.

    Anyway, I couldn’t believe that you also experienced a professor being defeating to you, but you were able to come through it with such success. I just wanted to thank you for sharing your story, and helping me to know that I’m not the only one.


  985. the jealous curator /// 01.26.2016 /// 8:11pm

    oh. that’s awful jennifer, but i’m so glad you found your way through (and you and i are not even close to the only people that happened to! important thing is that you picked up your brush again!!!)

    I’m really glad to have found this blog. This is hugely inspirational. I’m not on Tumblr or anything, so it is rare for me to find art that is so easily captivating. Bravo!

    But. I actually wanted to ask you something that may be off the beaten path of your regular curation tastes. I’m currently an intern for an app called Siren. It’s a new dating app, a self proclaimed “anti-Tinder”. Centered around creating an atmosphere that stimulates community and conversation, it was originally targeted as a way for women to leave the people shopping and otherwise objectifying environment of other dating apps behind.

    The cool thing is: the CEO and CMO are both artists and designers before they were businesswomen. Check out the CEO’s design/performance art installations. THEY. ARE. GREAT. :http://www.susiejlee.com/

    My point being, the Siren app itself was created with a beautiful artistic flare and it’s mission is definitely one based in innovation and transforming landscapes. I’m wondering if there a way for it (or Susie) to be featured on your site. Check out the apps website too! : Siren.mobi. I think this is definitely an idea that spurs “Why didn’t I think of that” while also inspiring.

    Let me know your thoughts (feel free to email me). Thought I’d reach out.

    Again, fantastic digital gallery you’ve created. I really admire your ability to turn such blocking feelings into something productive and inspiring. Well done.

    Best & Brightest,

    Siren Community Relations

    I’m so happy to have found your blog-I’ve already been enjoying the instagram feed for a few months now. Love the name, a sentiment I can relate to, all too well…

    I have a new body of work for an upcoming show called “conversations with Hopper”, its a series of oil paintings that deal with the urban landscape and the genre of urban painting, with a nod to Edward Hopper’s iconic work. Please check it out when you have a moment!


    Thanks, and keep up the great work!

    I’d just like to say how much I love your blog, the work you share is always so interesting. My work explores the complexities of childhood, I work on vintage school rulers and blackboards and wondered if you would like to take a look? http://www.lindsaymadden.com
    Thanks so much,

  1020. Els /// 03.10.2016 /// 5:34am

    Your blog is really, really nice! I only recently discovered instagram and your blog, which a small haven in the overload of images 🙂
    I am a painter & printmaker from Belgium. If you have a spare moment, feel free to check my website http://www.elslesage.be where you can find my paintings & prints. My most recent work and work-in-progress can be found on my instagram account ‘elslesage’.
    My recent work is inspired by my grandmother’s house. After she died, the house was emptied and sold. Because I had a close relationship with my grandma and spent much time as a child in her home, I wanted to translate my farewell to my grandma and her home into visual work. With my camera fixed on a tripod on 130 cm height – the eye level of an 8 year old – I captured small details in her house: cracks in the wallpaper, remainders on the wall of gone picture frames and crucifixes, the statue of dear mary in her garden, … These traces form the starting point for my most recent visual work.
    Anyway, enough talking 🙂
    I would to love hear what you think about it! Thanks!
    Bye bye,

    Found this to be quite humourous: We recently removed one of your Pins because it went against our policies on sexually explicit or pornographic content. The Pin was from your “LOL” board and it originally came from https://www.thejealouscurator.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/StacyAltiery_collab1.jpg. We also took it down from everyone else’s boards. We don’t allow images that are inappropriate for the general public, like sexually explicit Pins, anywhere on Pinterest. https://www.thejealouscurator.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/StacyAltiery_collab1.jpg.

    I recently liked a pin on Pinterest and they removed it as “pornography” and linked it back to your blog. It simply said, “My inner critic is an asshole.” Are they serious? I cannot believe that in this day and age, they would do something so asinine!!!!! Love your blog, things here are gorgeous, different, and a breath of fresh air. You’ve got a fan in me! 🙂

  1037. the jealous curator /// 04.05.2016 /// 8:40am

    Hi Danielle,

    My name is Marvan. On May 18th, we are planning to launch the first online system in the world for Art Quotation, Automated Rating and Real-time Trading, based on principles applied to capital markets; it has recently been called the NASDAQ for art, as it will definitely create major changes by affecting the way people invest in art. Find out more about ARTSTAQ: https://goo.gl/wyNKrZ

    In this sense, I would like to establish a long-term cooperation with about 5 global media partners with whom I’ll exclusively share in advance the latest updates about our innovations, technologies and platforms. Our first press release about our Public Launch is planned to take place on April 15th, i.e. 3 days before presenting it globally through our communication channels.

    Here’s a link to the first 2 global art exchange platforms based on our ARTSTAQ Standard: http://www.artex500.com and http://www.bolsaarte.com.

    I just wanted to say hi and to see if you’d be interested in following and being a part of our journey.

  1046. Erin MacKeen /// 04.19.2016 /// 7:03pm

    Hi Danielle, I love what you do and as an artist, appreciate the care and attention you bring to promoting the art you love. I have a show on now in Toronto and was hoping to draw your eyes to the thing that I love to do. Thank you for continuing to inspire.

    All the best, Erin

  1047. Jennifer Kosharek /// 04.26.2016 /// 9:00am

    I’m a single mom with four kids and i want to get my art to a wider audience. I rely on my art to support my family and if you had any insights on how to take “the next step,” it would be appreciated.
    I’d love to send you a packet of original art/multiples/mail art. Thank you!


  1048. Tristesse Seeliger /// 04.28.2016 /// 5:40pm

    Hi Danielle,

    I wanted to check in with you again and show you my new work. It is all about the Penrose shape. I have been doing mixed media map collages using the Penrose shape tessellations that have branched off into large hand made wood panel acrylic paintings using geometry and colour palletes to accentuate the 3D aspects of the forms. I am super proud of this new work and hope you like it. On my site the first 9 images are all of the Penrose shape. This is math and art together!
    The Penrose shapes are geometry that was named after Roger Penrose a mathematician and physicist who developed this tessellation.

  1049. Biljana /// 04.29.2016 /// 8:38pm

    Hi Danielle

    I wanted to share a project I’ve been working on recently called “Next of Kin.” It’s a new digital art series that consists of contemporary floral still-lifes containing my toddler’s finger paintings. It’s a way of preserving his paintings but at the same time pushing my artistic abilities in new directions.

    This project was born out of many finger painting sessions I’ve had with my two-year old son who enjoys doing art as much as I do. I found myself very inspired by the bright palette of his kid’s finger painting set and the freedom of his strokes.

    Here’s a direct link to it: http://biljanakroll.myportfolio.com/next-of-kin

  1052. Debra Lynch /// 05.03.2016 /// 1:11pm

    You are a genius, and your blog site is just wonderful. My art is rather simple but I enjoy sketching, painting with water colors and acrylic as well as digital art. I use to be a digital art and abstract snob but after joining a wonderful website online, the other artists works really fascinated me and AH HA I now do both. I find abstracts to be exciting and wonderful additions to my online galleries. I hope that you like some of my work, it would be great to see some of it on here. I also enjoy photography, and I look at things a little different than I use to and find my creative juices come alive when I just let go and do it. My son was instrumental in changing the way I create and look at art. He was sick of my landscapes and told me go broader Mom, so I did in a big way. Now he says Mom, keep it up, you’re finally looking good! OUCH!! I hope you like some of simple works. Thank you for creating this fantastic site. Is it ok for me to pin on my Facebook and Pin Interest sites? I have a lot of artist friends who are struggling to get their work and names out there. They are from all around the globe and I fell in love with their creativity and have included them in on every site I go to. You are so right other artist bring out the creativity in other artist and wake up feelings we never thought of before. Thank you again. Looking forward to hearing from you.

  1053. Woodburning by Marsha /// 05.03.2016 /// 6:46pm

    Your blog was highly recommended in an Art newsletter I subscribe to and I must say I am very impressed. Your taste is impeccable and the selection could not be more varied. However, I did see one category that did not appear and was wondering if you had reviewed any Pyrography? I burn art on wood, paper and leather with a simple wood burning tool. A very traditional method that’s been around for decades. I’ve just had my first gallery show at The Art Forum in Waco, Texas and would love to share with you. I can also be found on Instagram with the same name Wood_burning_by_Marsha. I think you will appreciate the simplicity of line and amount of detail that can be achieved with patience and heat.
    Keep up the great work.

    So enjoy your blog!!! I am a newbie painter, just two years painting and only started at age 55 after 30+ years in the corporate world. I was just featured on our local PBS Arts Plus episode and was hoping you might take a look at my art for a possible feature? I’m hoping to reach a larger audience and your followers are amazing. Thanks so much for your consideration.

    I’m seriously struggling with jealousy and resentment towards the work and success of the closest person to me I’m my life- my partner.
    Is there anyone out there who can help me?

  1057. the jealous curator /// 05.05.2016 /// 7:45am

    hi stephenie… have you read/done “the artist’s way”, by julia cameron? there’s a whole section of the book just about that kind of thing. i’d highly recommend it… it changed my life.

  1058. Justine /// 05.06.2016 /// 5:13pm

    What an inspiring story!

    I know what you mean about jealousy driving hard work. In my situation, I am not the creative, but seeing other artists’ success inspires me to keep plugging my neighbour’s art every day. She is a well respected children’s book illustrator whose work is absolutely magical.

    I hope you don’t mind me posting her shop:

    I can’t wait to start listening to your podcast!

  1059. Joumana Medlej /// 05.09.2016 /// 12:25am

    Hi Danielle, I’ve been a subscriber to Art For Your Inbox for a few months now, and it never fails to inspire new ideas, which is the best gift you can give an artist. I see you get endless requests for reviews, but I wondered if I could add one to the pile? I could use more exposure from influential curators, as I’m something of an oddity: a woman creating contemporary Arabic calligraphy, in media such as cut paper and wood. If my work tickled your fancy, a feature would be so helpful 🙂 Thank you either way as I really enjoy your newsletter!

  1060. Carole Elliott /// 05.11.2016 /// 3:28pm

    Hi Danielle. I came across your blog via an email from Artsy Shark. I hear you when you talk about feeling jealous when you see the works by other artists. I find it actually inspires me to work harder and improve my work. I specialise in seascapes and am currently working on a series of turtle paintings to help support the Turtle Hospital in Townsville, Qld, Australia, which I would love you to take a look at 🙂

  1061. Stephenie /// 05.11.2016 /// 3:29pm

    Hi Danielle,

    I just discovered your blog, and love what I see and read here! Wonderful choice of artists!

    If you would be interested in something different?
    In my long term project Talking Walls, I paint poetical murals that come to life in stop motion animations. Images often correspond with the natural environment of the wall, the history of the building or city in which it stands. In that sense, the paintings that emerge are an attempt is to materialize the history and images buried deep into the brick and cement. In my universe, images continuously turn up, evolve and disappear, but they always leave their traces.

    On my website http://www.ksoete.com (tab: Talking Walls Movies, and Talking Walls Cities) you can find my work. Would be great to be considered. Greetings

  1077. Beth Ravitz /// 07.09.2016 /// 10:31am

    Just stumbled onto your blog.
    I am a “seasoned” professional artist….re-invented myself 25 years ago at the age of 40 after a 20 year career in NYC in the garment industry. I was a successful fabric designer and owner of my own fabric converting business. (My company converted raw goods into finished goods, and sold millions of printed yards to manufacturers who made it into garments).

    Sold my business and left NYC at 40, married with 3 children, to move to Florida. Needed to nourish my soul by doing fine art while raising my children. That didn’t last for long, and within a few years I got into the field of Public Art. Take a look at my website: http://www.bethravitz.com.

    Totally relate to all you have said, and to many of the comments made by other artists.

    hello there
    i am really impressed by the “unwoven light” installation. i wonder if i can work it out in my own office. can you please help me find out what material it is made of, or do you know any online sources to help me out in this?

    I enjoy your blog. I would like to share a story tip. Thank you for your review.

    -Heather Clark

    Sky Stage, a Transformative Building-Scale Public Artwork, Opens in the Shell of a Burned and Boarded Building

    Frederick, Maryland – Artist Heather Clark, in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Digital Structures research group, has launched Sky Stage. Sky Stage temporarily transforms a boarded property in Frederick, Maryland’s downtown historic district into an interactive building-scale living art work.

    This pre-Revolutionary War building, was damaged by a major fire in 2010 and has no roof. The plywood boards on the doors and windows have been removed to reveal a center for arts and culture. Framed by historic stone walls, Sky Stage’s open-air theater seats an audience of 140 people among trees.

    The centerpiece of Sky Stage is a digitally-designed two story living sculpture with ribbons of drought-resistant plants that twist and wind through a wooden lattice and the building’s doors and windows. State of the art green roof technology has been modified to support the spiraling plants. Rainwater is collected from an adjacent roof and stored in a cistern to irrigate the plants and trees.

    Artist Heather Clark collaborated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Digital Structures research group who computationally designed and engineered the sculpture’s complex wooden lattice with custom geometry-generating algorithms. Professor Caitlin Mueller and Research Fellow Kam-Ming Mark Tam led the engineering effort.

    Frederick Arts Council is overseeing the day-to-day operations of the theater in partnership with AmeriCorps. Together, they are facilitating local residents and community groups to run creative endeavors within the historic shell. Working with the public, Sky Stage offers drama, music, children’s story time, art classes, dance, history, literature, and film.

    Sky Stage will be open through July 2017.

    Hi Danielle,

    Love your site, I’m always discovering new artists here! I wanted to let you know about Evening with Hopper, my new series of paintings opening in a solo show at the Mira Godard Gallery in Toronto April 29th – May 27th. The show is comprised of 12 oil on canvas paintings that place the works of well-known painters such as Edward Hopper and Canadian painter Lawren Harris into crisp, modern, architectural settings. I hope to create a new context to evaluate their iconic paintings, and start a discussion on the continuing power and relevance of urban painting to a contemporary audience.

    You can see the paintings in the show here: http://www.peterharris.ca/mira-godard-2017

    Hi Danielle!

    I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your blog and podcast.

    I’ve been making art my whole life but only recently started taking it seriously again after a long break (I was a graphic designer for quite a while too). As a way to jump start this change I embarked on a 100 day project which I finished last week. Your podcast really helped me get make it to the end, especially on those days when I wasn’t inspired. It’s been great hearing other artists tell their stories and hearing about your own as well. Nice to know that I’m not alone in my struggles! Also, “Your Inner Critic is a Big Jerk” is now one of my favorite books. Please write more stuff – and keep making fabulous collages!!

    Thanks and if you’d like to see my work you can find me on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/noramakes/

    Hello Danielle,

    I will be honest I am fairly new to reading your blog page. I am a young artist who is still trying to find my place in this large art world. Many of the artist’s you have posted about I have followed since school. As I looked at their work I dreamt of becoming as known and bold as they. This site is a brilliant reminder to use these great artistic minds as an engine and site map into your own. I am delighted to continue to read your posts from now on. It would be a privilege to have you look at my artwork at http://megan-hinds.com/.
    Thank you very much

It’s always a great mix of artists I haven’t seen before, and I find it very inspiring and great motivation to keep going at my own practice. There are so many people making such

    I would be so grateful for any feedback on my work. I feel I’m at a huge crossroads, in a rut, and I know to move forward I need to try and get as much critique as possible even if it might not be what I want to hear. It’s the best way to step back and reassess what I’m doing. Any thoughts or advice would be much appreciated.

  1117. Genevieve Moore /// 06.12.2017 /// 5:15pm

    Hi Danielle, I’m a long-time reader and listener. I really appreciate all the work you do in maintaining this excellent website as well as publishing books and interviewing artists. When I saw this week’s work by Wanda Bernardino I just have to ask… why do so many artists feel the need to disfigure women’s faces and bodies? I read Wanda’s statement about “forcing the observer to re-examine the attribute of identity,” but when she gives no other identifying information about the people in their clothing or their background, all we have are fairly bland compositions with these stark white defacements. When I scroll through your Pinterest gallery, I see face after face dissected, melted, replaced, removed…and find it unnerving. Brian Donnelly’s work in particular was so disturbing I haven’t listened to his interview yet. Does it seem to you to be a trend? Even your avatar has no face. 🙁 Anyway, again, I appreciate all that you’ve done. Thank you!

  1118. the jealous curator /// 06.12.2017 /// 6:08pm

    hi genevieve – in this case, you’d have to ask the artist. i know a lot of artists who use found images (either found paintings or found images for collage) remove the faces because of privacy/copyright concern. a lot of other artists do it to remove that one specific person – ie without a face the viewer might be better able to see themselves as the figure in the work … just a woman, just a man … not that specific person from the original image. i think each artist has their own reason for it (i used to do it with photos of my grandmother, mainly because it felt way too personal to be using her face in my work, but i wanted her presence there). anyway, not a super clear answer, but i don’t think there are a lot of those when it comes to art 😉

    Thank you for you contributions to the art world, and for making culture so accessible.
    I am an artist that recently moved to Chicago from Cleveland. Trying to get my footing in a bigger city has its challenges and it’s work like yours that helps to fill-in lonely late nights of endless research and art applications with inspiration and renewed energy.

    If you can spare a moment, would love your feedback on my latest works which involve constructing or performing science didactics in order to deconstruct previous narratives of “universal truths”. Big Bang, Birth, Mitosis become feminist and queer in the origin stories in my work:

    I have a 3 hour drive twice a week and usually listen to a podcast as radio stations keep fading out. Found your by accident and now they keep me company on the long routine drive. I love art and have a large (over 600 works) collection of well known and totally unknown artists.Been collecting since 17- long ago. Started with a $75 purchase from a large art museums purge/sale bin – it was a small Warhol with certificates!! Those bargains are long gone (so is the purge bin). It excites me that there are other folks out there who share thus passion. Sooner or later I will work my way through all your past podcasts much to my enjoyment. Keep up the good work. Cheers

    Hi Danielle,

    I have really enjoyed your work and relate to the “jealous” aspect you so so honestly admit to. There is a an artist that I showed wit years ago, whose work is so amazingly beautiful to me, that I have a hard time viewing it, because I find myself not wanting to be so influenced by it! This sounds crazy and anti-productive, but, I imagine not so uncommon among fellow artists. I tried to submit my work, but can’t quite grasp the “mail” system you have . I’d love to be considered here. My website: http://www.lindalaino.com, and blog: wordsandpictures.lindalaino.com
    Thanks so much!

  1135. Maarit Hänninen /// 12.07.2017 /// 1:24am

    Hi Danielle,

    Your story sounds so familiar, that I had to leave a comment.

    I, too, was in the same point once, where I secretly dreamed of being an artist, but was too shy to even try. I was jealous at my older brother, who was always better at drawing than I, jealous at my class mates, jealous at pretty much anybody who had the courage to try. And boy was I afraid of people’s judgement.

    So in my envy I realized that I had to use this negativity, and turn it to something that fuels me. I bought a pencil and a sketchbook, which almost felt like I was committing a crime, and started doodling – without telling anybody, of course. It took a long time until I had the courage to show any of my drawings even to my boyfriend, but for me his positive reaction was an approval to continue.

    And here we are, a few years later. I have my own website (www.maarithanninen.com) and Instagram page (@maarit.hanninen), where I post my art for the whole world to see, and couple of years ago my brother came to me and said that my work is better than his. Although I realize that one cannot compare these kinds of things, it did feel like victory! Whenever I show my work to my family members and friends, they all tell me that they had no idea I could make something like that. Well, guess what? Neither did I.

    I’d like to invite you to take a look at my site. I feel like some of my work would go well with the theme of your site, and I would be much obliged to hear your thoughts!

    Wishing you a lot of success on your artistic path.

    Best regards,

    Hi Danielle — You pour a lot of yourself into your podcasts. Your authenticity, enthusiasm and story telling draws us all in. People open up to you in delightful ways during interviews — no really, I just can’t wait to hear your next one!

    You have a gift for making people feel heard and for seeing past the surface of things. As a self-taught artist living in the Texas hill country, I work mostly in isolation from other artists. Thank you for sharing the untold journeys of so many other brilliant makers. And for asking those questions we all want to know. And telling the swan-lake transformations so many of us have taken from doubt and failure to creating work that is both something uniquely themselves and swoon-worthy.

    Keep at it!! And I love your son’s ‘would you rather’ questions! It’s great to see how you weave him into the process.

    I recently listened to your podcast with Terrence Payne and was inspired by how he dramatically switched media. I did the same thing not too long ago – switching from printmaking to ceramics. A lot of people were like “whaaat???” But, as you said, that’s what artists do! We explore and move forward, and change things up to find new ways to communicate, even if it means having to learn something completely new. I’m really enjoying your podcasts – you make my morning commute bearable! Thank you for bringing all sorts of interesting artists to my eyes and ears. If you’re curious, please take a look at my print and ceramic explorations on Instagram @melindalaz
    Sending warm regards from Denver, CO.

    Hello Danielle,
    I have written before to tell you how much I love the blog and podcast and the more I listen, the more similarities I have seen in our journeys. We are about the same age, have one kid close in age, have had long periods of not making art and are coming back at it. What I wanted to share this time is another podcast I listen to that blew my mind about oil paint and I thought you may appreciate it after hearing the one with Janna. Savvy Painter also interviews artists, but she has also done a few with the founder of Gamblin paint and this is the one to check out first: https://savvypainter.com/podcast/oil-painting-questions-answers-gamblin/. Enjoy and good luck with everything you are doing! All the best from Omaha, Nebraska!

    Hi Danielle,

    I’ve recently discovered your blog which is awesome 🙂 I was wondering if you may be interested in sharing some of our artists work from the Central desert of Australia. No problems if not, any feedback would be very welcome and we’ve been working hard on our Instagram too if you are interested.



    Thanks so much for your time 🙂

    Hi Danielle, I’ve been enjoying your podcasts for a few months. I usually listen to them while i’m weeding / gardening here in Victoria, BC. I was so choked that i couldn’t see you when you were here at Poppet Creative, hopefully you make it back to Victoria. I obtained my BSW at UVic and while there I took year long of Art History and LOVED it! During your interview with Michelle Kingdom, you mentioned a paper similar to Yupo but more absorbent ~ sounded like “keraskin”? Could you please let me know the name of it? Many thanks, Danielle! Keep on keeping on!! ~kari

  1161. Steve Gow /// 06.19.2018 /// 8:39pm

    Hi JC,

    I’m the founder of a Canadian start-up company from Calgary that is building an online blockchain platform called “UppstArt” where people can purchase original artwork directly from emerging artists and re-sell it whenever they want for a low commission, a portion of which goes to the artist as a resale royalty. We are very passionate about how the marriage of art & tech can support emerging artists and raise awareness about the lack of resale royalties in Canada and the US.

    If you think your readers might have any interest in what we are doing, I’d love to chat further and have the opportunity to convince you that we are doing something really significant in the art world. We are at http://www.uppstart.ca if you want to check us out!

    All the best,

    – Steve

    Mark Schwartz is an accomplished shoe designer and artist. He has been designing shoes for over 30 years for some of the biggest names in our industry.

    Born in New York City, Mark has traveled the world gaining inspiration for his ideas from artist Andy Warhol, who Mark beneficially watched at work and knew for four years. Warhol encouraged and helped Schwartz cultivate his artistic renderings of shoes while Schwartz was working for Roger Vivier as an assistant designer and creative director. Mark Schwartz is now pioneering a new shade of talent within his work by exploring the grace and eclecticism of footwear as works of art.

    Heard you this morning on CBC: what a treat! I found Jealous Curator years ago, have dropped in whenever I’ve remembered to, and have always found art I’ve been astounded by. It was great to hear the backstory to what prompted this great career you’ve built for yourself, though so sad to know of your years without making art. I’ve heard similar art school stories. I’m an art quilter, and despite having won an award at Quilt Canada for one of my pieces this year, it’s been a trough year for me as an artist. I’ve spent too much time this year celebrating others’ art and not enough making my own: now I’m blocked. I’m going start re-reading “Creative Block” today and am looking forward to buying and reading your subsequent books. Thanks for the encouragement. And congrats on the new, sleek look to the blog! All the best from Greenwood, south of you in Boundary Country.

    I have been looking through your site today. It is so inspirational. I think that a lot of artists struggle with self promotion. I know that I do.

    I try hard to put my work out there but, apart from sales of physical paintings from real galleries, I find it a slog. My online work just gets pinched by bad people and sold on nefarious web sites.

    I will be reading your blog and probably ordering one of your books to see what advice you have.

    Anyway, I love your blog, thank you!

Would you be willing to share Moco’s Top 10 with your followers? We hope you find this email well and look forward to your response. If interested, I will happily send our list along with photos and texts. Stay in and stay safe.

She is a modern day stop motion film master, among other things multi media. I first fell in love with her work when I discovered “Blood Tea and Red String”, a hypnotic hour or so long feature.

I am an actor, and used to work at a large ad agency as a receptionist from 2004-2008. I saw so many creatives who seemed frustrated, obviously wanting to create for themselves but not making the time, lots of times due to fatigue from long hours doing client work. And myself, having a full-time day job to make ends meet while I did plays at night. The artist’s life isn’t an easy one, and I appreciate you sharing your journey and insight to inspire others.
