just make art.

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…


i thought she was so inspiring that i wanted pick her brilliant mind for

clues on how to live creatively like she does…


where do you create?

“i make my art at art school” 

and…says her rep (mom)…

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.”
