Artist Feature Spotlight on the Artists
|this is the spread i did for Goatgoddess' japanese moleskine|
Kathleen Nesi (known to us as Knesi07 here at AFA) finds art an opportunity to escape and relax. It has always been that way for her. Even as a child, she loved to draw and paint, and enjoyed copying Peanuts comics into a spiral notebook. These days, her favourite media is mixed and she loves nature inspired work as it's a reflection of time spent growing up in the country--something she misses now that she's in the suburbs of New York. She loves to have little books of art to treasure, so participates in chunky book and Japanese moleskine journal exchanges. As her own work grows and develops, she finds it has more of a "story" behind it, while staying very bright, bold, illustrative, and layered. Woodburning has also started showing up in her work.
Kathleen has enjoyed her time at AFA because of all the kind and inspiring artists she's met in the cyber-world. Their talent never disappoints, she says, and it motivates her to push herself in directions she might not have taken otherwise. She's a member of the New Rochelle Art Association and will have work in two upcoming shows. See more of her work at www.kathleen-nesi.blogspot.com.
Aside from her art pastimes, Kathleen enjoys photography, running, playing with her dogs, and hanging with her art friends. Her daily philosophy can be summed up in three words that she embraces: live life fully.
