Kate, My cousin, Matt Ross, has recently joined a website for emerging artists called http://www.thetappancollective.com/. I'm of course super proud and happy that his talents are being recognized. Here are two posts I wrote on this blog in support of his talent- http://kateandamanda.com/2014/01/18/matt-ross/ and http://kateandamanda.com/2014/02/06/the-finished-product/.
I firmly believe that you should love the art in your home whether it be photography, paintings or even prints. It should have meaning for you. It should evoke emotion. And if it's original all the better! There is so much talent out there just waiting to be discovered which is why I am totally into the Tappan Collective. Aside from Matt's art here are a few other pieces I'm digging.
