Blog interview featuring Karen Jaikowski.
I am preparing for my first showing in San Francisco in October. Also, there are really cool commissioned paintings on my easel in the works. I am excited to complete them and post!
I am securing several new appearances and exhibits. I'll make some announcements soon.
We are gearing up for our featured artist for June: Sean Danconia. More info will get posted soon.
JW: Why do you create art?
DD: I create art to inspire others.
JW: Why the Lifted series?
DD: The Lifted series was inspired by a conscious desire to inspire others to be greater than themselves
JW: What is it like exhibiting at JWC?
DD: Exhibiting at JWC was amazing because of the level of professionalism and support I have received not only at my show but in years prior. I have known Joseph since 1997 since I went to Art Center. I am honored to have had the opportunity to show at JWC
JW: What is the response on your newly launched Lifted shirts?
DD: I have received a powerful response in regards to my new Lifted t-shirts. People don't know whether to wear them or frame them.
I'm gearing up for a couple of new exhibits as well as First Friday. Thanks to all who ordered calendars. Also, a new ink drawing series is in the works.
Every neighborhood has its good and bad qualities. This particular neighborhood is Watts, CA. When I took my first visit to the Watts Towers, I noticed various beautifully painted houses along the way. These houses really added charm to the neighborhood and I wanted to let the world in on these treasures.
