101010 Project: Kelly Thiel

Name of Business: Kelly Thiel Studio

Years in Business: 10

An artist and a mother of two young girls, Kelly Thiel
lives in South Carolina, USA creating award-winning clay and bronze sculptures, as well as doing art journaling and mixed media paintings. She just finished building a new studio at her home, and is dying to log some real hours in there! Kelly is doing her best to live life to the fullest and enjoy each day, with her art and her family.

Collaborations: a Good Idea?
I do think that collaborations are a good idea. Sometimes when two artists get together, a beautiful synergy is created. Ideas just flow and wonderful things can happen. It's also a great way to reach out to other audiences that you may not normally interact with. I would say that a blog hop is a sort of collaboration, just an online one with many contributing artists! My favorite type of collaboration  though, is when two artists in different mediums get together to create a single (or multiple!) piece(s) of art. Integrating both mediums and working off each other's design, the two artists come together to create one finished piece.

I bet having two artists in your family, with your husband being a pro photographer, might make for some interesting collaborations! i think collaborations with our children are some of the most rewarding too.
