Happy Friday, everyone! While the “Follow Friday” movement began on Twitter, I’m taking things a step further and will be featuring my favorite artists on my blog! Each feature will have a short interview so you can learn more about them.
We’re starting out with a Norfolk artist and one of my friends, the very talented Yvonne of Star Whisper! I first met Yvonne at Tidewater Community College’s Visual Arts Center and always admired her art style. She is an amazing illustrator and clay artist, and it’s been really inspiring seeing her business grow!
Mini Interview with Star Whisper:
Describe your work in five words.
Illustrative, Miniature, Kawaii, Food, Noms
Is there a story behind your business name?
My business name was inspired by a watercolor painting of mine called “Star Whisperer.” It is a scene of magic, wonder, expectation, and growth.
Where do you find inspiration?
My fellow artists. Art history.
What’s your studio playlist?
*I listen to anything but mostly 80s and 90s happy-go-lucky music.
Where is your studio?
I operate out of a bedroom in my house but I may be moving to an outside space soon if I can find one.
How do you get yourself out of a creative rut?
I have to wait for it to fizzle out/convert to a more positive energy.
Who do you really admire?
Anyone who works their way up from humble beginnings.
