This weekend I had the pleasure of spending an afternoon with Darlene Schaper, a Portland, Oregon, artist who kindly agreed to show me around her home and studio and chat with me about her career and art. The product? A BRAND NEW WORK-IT INTERVIEW, just for YOU!!! Yes, you can read all about Darlene's career as an artist and hear what advice she has to offer to anyone interested in pursuing a career in art. But wait, THERE'S MORE!!! We even took some video of our visit, so as soon as I figure out how to work this new-fangled video-magic film editing software, you'll get to see the first-ever Brainy Girls video interview!!! The written part of Darlene's interview (available now) is more about her career, but the video will be more about her art and what inspires her to do what she does (coming soon to an online magazine near you). I'm so excited!!! Will Nefertiti the hairless Sphinx make an appearance? Will you get to see Bigfoot? What are the "bins" and what can you find there??? All these questions and MORE will be answered...as soon as I finish putting the video together! But for now, please check out Work It, and feel free to bunny hop on over to Darlene's website where you can see more of her art (including the pieces featured below).
