Hi, I'm Faith an artist and arts administrator. On Dartily, I embrace daily art making and a curiosity for the inspiration that surrounds us all.
I'm quite familiar with Brancusi's sculptures but I didn't know the history behind his studio.
This week I finished knitting a hat made from hand dyed yarn and a pair of socks from classic Patons yarn.

The past couple weeks have been very busy with a move/downsizing, but I did manage to get a couple drawings done. I love drawing so much and really want to do more so I'm thinking of taking on a drawing challenge for August?! Here are a couple pieces I completed. Their process can be seen on my youtube channel.
I spent some time reading and watching interviews with art theorist and critic Hal Foster.
Basket maker Karen Arawjo and minimalist painter Helen Soreff were both born on July 18th. I like to feature women artists in my Happy Birthday series because historically female artists have received less recognition than their male contemporaries. I've had trouble finding information on some of the artists I've chosen to feature but usually can find enough for a post. Today, however, I could find very little about these two artists.
