Daydream Artist Series

 
In a world saturated with stimuli that challenges our mental, physical, emotional, and creative health, we’re here to break through the noise with more daydreaming, more calm, and more realization of our full potential. Slip into the stories, cameos, and thought processes of some of our favorite artists to escape today and realize more of tomorrow.
 

Meet the Artist: Jonathan Dufner

Daydreaming for writer and self professed adventure enthusiast Jonathan Dufner typically leads to one place: The Great Outdoors. "A perfect daydream for me would be hanging out in a national park like the Grand Canyon," he explained for our Daydream Artist Series.

Meet the Artist: Caitlin Corsetti

Writers, according to Caitlin Corsetti, are "notorious daydreamers" in every sense. "You could say that's all writing is  — just putting the daydreams onto paper," explained the Atlanta-based writer and editor for our Daydream Artist Series.

Meet the Artist: Michelle Lung

Michelle's artful eye, inquisitive nature, and lovably quirky sense of humor caught our attention for this series, and it's easy to see why  — go ahead and try not to crack a smile when someone describes themselves as "a couch potato with the soul of a 10-year-old and interests similar to your kooky neighbor that builds picnic tables for squirrels."

Meet the Artist: Jordyn Kelly

Once you discover that photographer Jordyn Kelly converted a Sprinter van into a cozy home with her husband to travel the country, it’s easy to understand the role that daydreaming plays in her creative process — and her life in general. 

Meet the Artist: Symantha Jones

“My work, which is specifically about the memories created in and around the idea of home, rings true as we sit in our houses visiting with our spectral memories — good and bad,” the artist explains. “Time becomes unstuck as we lose track of hours, days, and weeks, and memory overlays reality in strange ways.”

Meet the Artist: Andrew Hayes

We took a few moments to chat about daydreams, authenticity, and finding connections with others — despite social distancing and stay-at-home orders — with the Denver-based creator. Read on to learn more about Andrew’s process and his work.

Meet the Artist: Elizabeth Beals

Whether in comic strips or storybooks, illustrations have a way of transporting us to new realities and making our daydreams come alive. For artist and illustrator Elizabeth Beals, her imaginative creations do exactly that.

Meet the Artist: Hannah Burton

For this next installment in our Daydream Artist Series, we sat down with Hannah to find out more about the spiritual world that inspires her, and how daydreaming makes her feel more connected to others and to the earth. 

Meet the Artist: Jessica Locklar

Using classic mediums like sculpture, drawing, and painting, artist Jessica Locklar portrays modern themes like gender roles and female sexuality throughout her captivating portfolio of work. 
 

Meet the Artist: Amanda Schrembeck

We sat down with Amanda to talk about her artwork and how revisiting life experiences (like travel) can help us all get through these unprecedented times.

Meet the Artist: Bin Cochran

"Inspiration for me is like the local cable company or the McDonalds ice cream machine - unreliable..."

Meet the Artist: Bekah Beckman

In Bekah Beckman, wanderlust never had a better subject. The Alpharetta-based graphic designer and photographer has spent a lot of her time traveling the world — from Alaska and New Zealand to Amsterdam and Kauai — and spent the rest of it daydreaming about where her next adventure will take her. 

Meet the Artist: Cam Schott

 Take one look at Cam Schott’s piedmont road — a 30” x 40” stretched canvas playfully outlining one of Atlanta’s busiest intersections with bright blues, black, and collaged Atlanta Journal Constitution’s headlines — and you know she’s a native.
