Featured Artist: Cookstah
I am excited to introduce a new series of posts on this blog featuring some of my favorite artists. And, of course, who better to start with than my partner in art crime and best friend, Kelly Cook. Kelly has really embraced her identity as an artist over the last 5 years. Her images are simple and sweet illustrations done on old book pages or using bits and pieces salvaged from old furniture, antique ephemera, and eclectic sources. By combining these little bits of stories, she creates images that feel as if they are bits of home – heartwarming and nostalgic (in the best possible way). If you visit her etsy shop, you will see more of her enchanting drawings on old book pages and her layered mixed media creations. Kelly is also the queen of creating custom artwork – so be sure to think of her next time you need something specific for your home or a friend. Thanks Kelly for sharing your voice with me and the people around you.
