Meet Seward Artist, John Stumme

Contact: johnstumme@gmail.com

From the Artist: “I find joy in creating individual pieces of beauty and intrigue out of various materials and later composing them to make a finished piece of art.  The flowing together of diluted acrylic paints on cotton, organza, canvas and handmade mulberry paper and the layering together of these materials often yields results that surprise and delight me.  Through this process I have also learned patience and attentiveness in waiting and looking for the messages about what wants/needs to be made – something that I believe is essential to creating authentic work.  I enjoy working with face, body and nature images because of the tangible connection to life and living they provide.”
