Shelby Grubbs Featured Artist Interview
Artist Shelby Grubbs was our Featured Artist Contest winner for the month of February. A very young artist, she strikes me as someone who is going to make a name for herself someday. A recent grad of Notre Dame University, she tried to pursue a practical path in life by studying business, but it was just making her miserable. So she switched to art on her own terms and has not looked back since. Her work is focused on the female figure: highly original, beautiful, yet often disturbing images, she explores loneliness, and desolation. In her own words, “I primarily explore the relationship between the individual and the external environment. I explore the combination of the mental and the visual landscapes.” I expect great things from Shelby in years to come. Read on.
