No Room For Fear with Artist Gretchen Warsen
INTRODUCING GRETCHEN WARSEN OF @TODDYPONDDESIGNS
An experimental abstract artist from Massachusetts, Gretchen Warsen takes risks by playing on the revolutionary Yupo paper. Something she has learned over the past two years from listening to artist interviews, and also through her own practice is that the best way to stay inspired and motivated to make art is to just keep making it! It's easier said than done, but even with the pieces that she can tell are headed for the “not-so-good pile,”…
