Artist of the Month

Agnes Zsigmondi McCraven

Q: What medium do you use for your art?
A: I paint with acrylic paint on paper.

Q: What inspires you and how do you get started?
A: In my junior and senior year of high school, I took evening classes of portrait, and figure drawing and clay sculpting in Budapest. After that I was accepted to the College of Industrial Arts of Budapest as a potter. As my singing career took off, I was unable to complete my studies but continued to produce pottery. I toured and taught music in Europe and in the US. At the same time, I also raised my family. After my retirement as a music teacher, I returned to my visual artistic roots and have continued to explore my talent as a painter.

Q: Is there anything else you would like people who view your art to know?
A: I have been painting for the last five years. I paint portraits of people whom I find beautiful, interesting and inspiring. I paint windows because they open from the comfort of my home to the outside world. I paint objects that are meaningful in my life and connected to my heritage and culture. I hope that my work speaks for itself and connects me to my viewers. 

Q: Is any of your art for sale? What is the best way for people to get in touch with you?
A: You can reach me at my shop "amccraven" on ETSY.
