The MALE in the MAIL art group

As soon as i saw this pic of Adam and his wife,
i knew he was a hip guy. Note the photo reference to 
the movie UP... i think. So cute!
is a true artist, a letter writer and a super cool guy -
and he is the only male in a group of 138 women
letter writers... so he is brave, also.
And he must have a super fantastic wife!
Read a bit about him here...
and check out his website.

Why did you join National Letter Writing Month....
-I joined NLWM because of Kay Dixon. She said that she was participating and she always is involved in the coolest online groups involving mail. I knew that if I even got one letter that was as cool as one of hers, it would be a win. I also knew it would challenge me to think outside the box and create some postcard sized art! 

How many years have you participated in NLWM?
-this is my first year to participate!

 Tell us a bit about your blog..
-my blog documents my work for the most part, but it has also been known to announce things like a baby on the way, document cool finds, and even "tour" our house. 
What is your favorite medium...
-the majority of my work is done in watercolor, but a few lucky NLWM participants will be receiving, linoleum block prints, paper cutouts, and even a few mini paintings. 
Where do you get your inspiration....
-most of my inspiration comes from my surroundings, I teach a lot of elementary students, and especially with our new addition, my work has lately been on the more whimsical side. I have REALLY been enjoying maps and was heavily inspired by a conceptual map of Disney World prior to the actual park being built. The shapes and colors were so simple and pattern driven, I had to recreate some of my favorite places with a nod at the style. You can see a commission I recently had where I drew over 400 pine trees (painted and shaded). It was awesome.

 Like what you have read about Adam...
i know you will be impressed!

Adam's art is great and love the book he worked on. We have a similar one in my town of Westport, CT. I have given it as a gift and the kids loved it! Glad we have one "brave" male!
