Day 5: Name five creatives in your field who inspire you. #crazyrebelliousart

5. Name five creatives in your field who inspire you.

Troy McFarland, the most awesome texture guy in the world of painting today, who also happens to be my husband. This painting in particular really impressed me. The photos can only hint at the majesty of seeing this in person. This one is super awesome, too:

Franetta McMillian, who does lovely art and creative writing. We used to do poetry readings at the same Delaware venues, back in the 1980s. Her work was always some of the most powerful for me.

Mel “stickchick” Goodale, an engineer turned knitwear designer, who has made a business out of doing what she loves, and is awesome at it.

Kirsten Zerbinis, whose handspun, hand dyed yarns will always have a special place in my memory. At this time, she’s got some freeform crochet tea cozies left at her Etsy shop.

Jennifer Lankenau, who took something she’s really good at (line drawing) and turned it into something people really can use (coloring books, like this one).
