Shante's Introduction

Hello everyone *waves. My name is Shante Bullock and I live in Arlington, VA.
I work full time as a project administrator at a non-profit. After 6+ years of an art block, I started doing art again Jan 2007 spurred on by a silk screen class. I am finding my way again in the art world and in creating. I love to do portraits & people in general, which is one reason I’m super psyched about this project. I am so happy to be in this group and can’t wait to participate and see all of your contributions to the moleskins.

Hi everyone! Just wanted to stay in the loop and let everyone know that I should have my moly finished and ready to send to Micha by the end of this week. How is everyone else doing?

Hope all had an enjoyable weekend!

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't introduced myself yet. So here it goes.

I'm excited to get started on this. This is my first portrait moly exchange. Happiness!

I started visual journaling only recently (about 3 years ago) as a continuation of my journey towards self discovery. My first and still ongoing visual journal is called, Growing Pains. I am also almost done with Sabrina Ward Harrison's visual journal workbook, The True and The Questions.

I teach art history and aesthetics and I'm a book illustration category thesis adviser 4 days a week this semester. I love drawing every chance I get, I use watercolor, ink, watercolor crayons, color pencil, ephemeras, rubberstamps (bought and personally carved) on my visual journal pages. I also make cloth dolls and cloth sculptures and wirework jewelry and sculptures. I've recently started to make shrines and am at the moment exploring assemblage as a medium.

I'm looking forward to interacting with all of you. I've checked out your stuff and I find them all so refreshing, interesting and inspiring.
