Gretchen Green – Canned Dogs

8 May

Today we feature the art of Gretchen Green from New York,  here is a description of her work in her own words…

I consider myself a folk artist and have been making things out of bits and scraps my whole life. I am inspired by Primitive Art, Folk Art and Outsider Art. I work with tin cans and aluminum soda and beer cans under resin. I have taken untold workshops and art classes over the years. The first art class I took was 25 years ago with Julie Taymor of “The Lion King” and her influence is still with me today. My work has been in galleries and in the theatre in New York City and I was chosen for “The Best of The Best” Florida Artists at Backus Museum in 2009 and received an “Award of Merit” for my piece.
