my latest discovery is artist flynn marquart

her rep [aka: mom] over at misc & co (a college friend-o-mine)

posted some pictures of flynn’s art show at her art-based preschool…

i instantly had a big crush on flynn & her work.

dare i say her polka dot painting is reminiscent of a damien hirst color etching i saw once

(at the sensation exhibit at the brooklyn museum of art)

damien hirst-lsd

 

one can see she already has an artistic flair & vision as a painter & collagist…

clues on how to live creatively like she does…

“i make my art at art school”

she does most of her painting at the kitchen table

& draws on post-it notes…which are all over the gallery (house)”

  1. I especially like the fact that she wants to be an animal doctor, a teacher and a mom to 4 kids! What a cutie she is!

  2. A-Dor-A-BLE! I suddenly want to fling myself at anything that might even slightly annoy Flynn! “Just make art.”
