Gabrielle: twenty, junior in college, studying painting and printmaking. Traveling to Florence, Italy for a semester in the fall to study art, pasta, wine and "la bel far niente." To see what I make, check out www.gabriellewolfe.com.
“You’ve got to care about prints. You’ve got to care about woodcuts, lithographs and etchings. You can’t care about whether they sell or whether anyone feels the way you do about your images. I love printmaking so much I try not to care about anything beyond my ego. I keep going because, like the woman who swallowed the knives and nails, I can’t stop. I’ve put my life into it.”
“I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration.”
Finished my 2nd edition and I’m happy with it and feel so much better about life and art and a little less stressed than I was this morning. Will take a picture of the new babies tomorrow!
