inspiration encouragement I’d like to say something about inspiration and encouragement and how it affects us in terms of work and enjoyment. The write up submitted by Shelley Tiffee moved me. She said that she felt the desire to be an artist - as if it were a calling - but the calling was muted it because she felt dejected after taking some art classes. I’m glad that she tapped back into the passion that dimmed for all of those years. Sometimes we have to juggle jobs and our goals in life - but it’s wonderful that she didn’t simply give up on it. And, it’s encouraging to hear that she has opened back up her passion to art and is creating again. As artists, we can’t (unfortunately) make anyone appreciate our art or value it according to the price we set. We can’t force a connection or respect for the art we create and love. Art comes in a variety of forms and from a variety of inspirations but when we aren’t encouraged and when the world around us doesn’t value our craft, it’s a challenge to keep at it. That brings me to documentary photographer Nicci Peet who explored women and the male-dominated industry of craft beer. I can’t attest to the overt sexism in beer commercials in other countries, but in the USA, it’s problematic. Women are symbols of sex and their sexuality sells beer. So why doesn’t the beer industry accommodate women consumers or producers? Based on the advertisements alone, you’d imagine that the valued consumer of beer is men. I appreciate her interest in brewing and women who brew. It’s absolutely worthwhile exploring these gender gaps and learning more about the women who step into the abyss of maledominated industries and succeed. Then again, perhaps I just want Nicci to ship all the women-designed craft beers to my little beach town here in Florida so I can be a happy, hoppy-sipping woman! Of course, the art industry itself still tends to offer greater value to male artists. There are still more opportunities for male artists and the male artists throughout history often are more valued, better known and more often discussed. So, it’s imperative that we change the narrative about art. So keep creating and encourage other women and girls to do the same.

Adriana Hoban mixed media

For Hoban,

artwork is innovative, unpredictable, fun, creative and unexpected. There are no limitations for the materials she uses or her ideas. She works with paints, textiles, lights, sounds and anything that catch her attention. Hoban listens to her instinct when it comes to her art without questioning where it’s going. “I do art,” says Hoban instead of saying she “makes it.” “My purpose is to create, my art purpose is to heal societies. I like to call myself doctor of society, I try to heal trough art. I create art having this main purpose but in the same time I want to make a point about life, feelings, good or bad happenings. And sometimes, I just do art.”

Jacqueline Talbot Ceramic Design

My background

and training is in Fine Art - primarily painting influenced by the natural world. I started Jacqueline Talbot Designs in 2009 after creating several digital designs using extensively manipulated photographs of my paintings. After discovering that it was possible to print digital designs on to ceramic transfers I made my first set of tiles. Next came the acquisition of my own kiln and the business has grown gradually since then. Recently, I have expanded my range to include ceramic dishes, tile trays and pendants, all using my original designs.

i create

strange surreal pieces of art, because I myself am odd. I was raised by a “flower child” and a Vietnam Veteran, in the suburbs of New Jersey during the 80s. I always aspired to be an artist and so I began drawing on every surface as soon as I could hold a crayon. Whenever I had to be confined to a car, a chair, or sit still for any reason, I occupied my time by creating art. My imagination was constantly running wild. I was also so full of energy, I’ve always struggled to sit still, that is, unless I am creating. I was diagnosed with ADHD as a teen, and my therapist explained that art was likely the reason I went undiagnosed for so long. Creating art has always been an outlet for me, as much as it is a coping mechanism, so I consider myself a cathartic visionary artist. All of my paintings are emotional pieces and are reflections of my own experiences, sometimes hidden behind a colorful veil of symbolism. You’ll notice women are the main subject of most of my work, because I subconsciously put myself into each piece. When I sit down to create a piece of art, I listen to music to set the tone. My music preferences vary greatly depending on my mood. I will listen to anything from Tool, The Beatles, Tom Petty, Rob Zombie, David Bowie, Queen, Melanie Martinez, and Lady Gaga just to name a few. I feel that music helps shape the piece of art I create, and it is an important part of the ritual I have developed when creating in my studio. Inspiration strikes all day long, no matter what I am doing. I have a notebook that I write ideas and sketch in, whenever I am unable to be in my studio painting. When I need an idea, I will look back in my sketchbook and run through what I’ve written, or quickly sketched out. My ideas evolve from there, taking on a life of their own.

In a

contouring - makeup fanatical society where women’s bodies and images are constantly critiqued, policed and “edited,” I truly love portrait photography that focuses on a woman’s individual beauty. It’s not that I’m antimakeup or disapprove of women who opt for surgeries to feel more comfortable in their skin ... but rather, I truly respect a woman’s ability to find comfort, love and acceptance in who she is as a person. In terms of portraits, I am most drawn to de-saturated and monochromatic color schemes so there is less “noise” (from color and background) in the images.

New Zealand + Women

W h o Brew

We’re all familiar with the stereotypical ‘craft beer drinker’: the bearded hipster on the pursuit of hoppiness. I’m not one for buying into stereotypes and I’m sure if you’ve ever stepped into a beer bar you’d have realised that this one is not as true as some people envision. One of the main, and in my opinion, most dated perceptions is that women don’t drink beer. During the past couple of years I’ve seen a plethora of articles claiming that the number of women enjoying beer and working in the industry is increasing. They all boast encouraging statistics but there is still fair way until we see equal beer consumption between the sexes, and overcome the cringe-worthy attempts at marketing beer to women and sexist imagery still seen in some beer marketing. But despite this, our sisters are ever more ingrained in the beer scene. Personally, I feel as though this is a fantastic time for women in the beer industry. As many published articles suggest, there are more women involved with beer and from my peak inside the industry I’ve seen that gender isn’t an issue. The New Zealand beer industry, which I feel is sometimes overlooked, has skyrocketed over the past couple of year. ‘Craft’ beer is the fastest growing segment of the New Zealand brewing industry and the demand is expected to triple over the next decade. Big things are brewing for craft beer in New Zealand and like the industry in the UK women play a big role. Being a photographer I’m not much of a wordsmith so I decided to best illustrate the amazing women who brew, develop and distribute craft beer across New Zealand was to go there and photograph them. This expedition was shot on 35mm film and part funded by some generous people via Kickstarter.

I first

discovered painting in my high school art class. I had always loved art and all of the different mediums, from pastel drawing to ceramics.   But in that particular class I knew I wanted to be an artist.  After graduation, I took a few classes at my local college, but became very discouraged, and no longer wanted to paint for classes or show my work publicly. I turned my collegiate focus to art history, which became a passion for me.  But I did maintain my interest in painting and would paint for myself throughout the years, as well as remaining creative in other mediums.  

When

I became pregnant with my son, I began painting full time again, and after his birth as often as possible. He now has his own area in my studio and loves to paint as well!

This Year

I have produced more pieces than any other year. And with the encouragement of friends and family I finally began to post my pieces online. It has made me realize that it is time to stop hiding and to put myself out there in the art world as much as possible.
