Flying Shoes Art Studio is owned by Oklahoma, regional artist, Kristy Patterson. Kristy's work is owned in private collections in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas. She resides in her rural hometown with her husband Michael and teaches advanced art at Guymon High School.
Last night I was searching through my cluttered studio looking for my old artist trading cards. At the very bottom of a box of swipe files (files I've made over the years of all sorts of images and collected, project ideas) I discovered my missing sketchbook. I nearly cried. This book has been missing for nearly a year and I had given up hope that i would ever find it again. I am so-o-o-o-o-o happy!
Needless to say, I will be very careful how I manage this little treasure from now on.
The sketchbook is filled with a variety of approaches of a single image - me. I started it a long time ago and have nearly filled all the pages with multiple mediums and styles all of the same photo. It's not about what I study as my subject matter but about how I study my subject matter.
