"I Voted" original 24"x36" acrylic on canvas completed in 2019 won BEST IN SHOW at Abiding Courage
I'm pleased to announce that I have been selected to participate in the Twirl project.
A group of artists have been selected to be followed with a series of interviews over ten years. Beginning in 2020 and ending in 2030.
You can follow the project by going to their website through clicking on the Twirl image on this page.
The following is text from the Twirl Project website which better explains the project.
T W I R L: A Decade of Artist Interviews came about because of my interest in developing an archive of artist stories comprised of interviews and visual imagery. I’m curious to see how these artists will persist in making art despite life’s unforeseeable challenges and I’m eager to watch their artwork continue to blossom over time.
My intention is to reach out annually, inquire about their experience making art and share that exchange on twirlproject.com. The digital platform will host artwork and interviews from working artists over the period of a decade. Chronicling a group of artists’ practices in this way may lead to the development of thought partnerships among the creatively minded.
I have an inkling that the formation of artist communities (whether physical or digital) aid in individual artist motivation and a collective positive outlook. You are invited to submit to the project and join in on the discoveries along the way.
This project is run by Ingrid V. Wells. She earned her MFA from San Francisco Art Institute and her BFA from Arizona State University. Her work fancies the fantastic and humorous in theme and the charming, the kitschy, and the celebrity in subject. Wells's paintings investigate the world of gendered consumerism and the ethics of fascination. Her work has been featured in The Huffington Post, Daily Mail, BUST Magazine, and Teen Vogue, among others. Wells currently lives and works in San Francisco.
