Hi! I'm Aubrey.


Hi! I'm Aubrey.
I am an artist based in LA (but from the good 'ol Midwest). This blog is a record of my life as a painter/artist. It is here to help me keep my place and motivation, ground me to learning and be a connection to other artists.

If you are interested in purchasing existing work, please visit my etsy site here. If you are interested in commissioning an original artwork, e-mail me at aubrey.studebaker@gmail.com

Mail Art 1 & 2

I have six total mail arts to complete. I knocked two out last night. I'm not telling who is getting which because, even though I'm sortof ruining the surprise by posting these on my blog...I still want it to be a surprise which one actually arrives in the mail.
I've always been a big fan of starting with a dark background and working in the negative space with a tint. Silhouettes also leave a good amount to the imagination which can be more interesting for the viewer.
...And one of my all time favorite things to paint are power lines...not really sure why that is.
