Each month I try to introduce my children to a new contemporary artist for new ideas, new techniques or approaches to art. (Pop over to my Art Page for all my art posts.)
Although I have recently shared about Jane Davenport and her “Beautiful Faces”, this post is about an artist I discovered last year and who profoundly influenced me …
Alisa Burke is an awesome contemporary artist!
She is a prolific artist, creating art and posting her sketchbook pages, her art processes and designs, studio updates, tips, fabulous tutorials and art ideas on her blog almost daily.
Anyone who knows me personally will have noticed the impact of her art, style and fashion in my life. In fact, I literally remodeled my wardrobe according to an “Alisa Burke Look”! Here’s a page I put together from her Fashion Friday posts ~
I even figured out her style “formula” = Crisp white or black + geometric patterns / polka dots / stripes + a pop of bold, clear color = I am a serious fan!
Of course, we have done quite a lot of Alisa Burke-inspired art here at home ~
She and her hubby and little 3-year-old often do collaborative art, which is really amazing.
Kate recently created these painting based on Alisa’s and her hubby’s latest collaboration ~
And here’s Kate’s art inspired by Alisa’s beautiful portrait above ~
Another stunning Alisa-inspired portrait done by Kate ~
And here’s my doodle page of art inspired by Alisa Burke ~
Expand your artistic wings and use some contemporary artist inspiration and fly! It is wonderful to learn and experience art through someone else’s discoveries and creativity!
