Holy donut hole, Batman! I am on Could 9!! First, I received invitational postcards for the all media show I got juried into in Chicago by The Northwest Area Arts Council and my piece, "Dappled" is the advertising piece for the entire show!
Second, I received this email (in part): "Congratulations! Your piece 'Dappled' won an Artistic Merit Award. Just to let you know also: your piece was one of the highest scoring pieces during jurying: it received an average of 6.67 (out of 7) by the three jurors, meaning that it was given a perfect 7 by at least two of them-- and that is out of more than 600 submitted works. It's a wonderful work!"

I am a female professional artist. You can see my work at: lorigarnerart.com to view my style of art,or,of course, view some of the art pieces here!
I take photos of models in various poses and settings to use as artistic reference for my artwork. I saw some local models on this site that would work perfectly for me, so I decided to join so that I could contact them to see if they would be interested in working with me to fulfill my visions.
I am pretty successful with my art--I recently got published in a book and one of my drawings, with the lovely MM model, Britany Blair #2245532, is on the cover of an art magazine. I have had my art hang in numerous galleries in the U.S. and am an award winner in several international and national art competitions.
I am very easy to work with. A good sense of humor and not demanding. I pay for your time. The shoots are creative and fun and always tasteful. My art is romantic type of art and also some quirky, fun type. I tried to show some variety on the art pieces I posted here.
I look forward to working with some wonderful people here and making contact with fellow artists.
