YA!! as a student artist myself I deeply appreciate these people's work. I have a small blog myself where I have been documenting my more recent art, it's fresh so I'll be adding much more work soon. But please feel free to take a look! :D great post!!

what a great idea for a regular feature- i love student art, and just recommended that we buy some for a client's art-less abode. some of it is so good, and so professional, so the kids deserve to get some money for it, and it's also a great way for people to build their own inexpensive collections. i'm heading over to ugallery to scope out picks for my client!

your post also amused me, because it seems we are so often on the same wavelength. i was at a friend's house yesterday evening giving a little advice on space planning, and we started to go though the files of artwork she has produced over the years. i remarked that she was too good not to be making a living at it, and that i would LOVE to profile her work on my blog. then when i got home, i thought- "what a great thing it would be to feature everyone i know i know who makes art", and sent out a few more emails in pursuit of possible featured artists!

(of course, i have an ulterior motive too- i' wouldn't mind scoring some work at discounted prices for my own collection in return for a little publicity. shhhh....)

Thanks for introducing me to UGallery - I hadn't heard of it before now. It's a great concept and great way to buy affordable art whether for a collection or a one-off purchase. Excellent tip!

Love the Cherry Blossom II - but all are of very high standard.

Beautiful! Since you touched on Suzanne's work in Atlanta & her use of art, you should check out the art at Emily Amy's gallery. www.emilyamygallery.com
