Jamie Sweetman: Elemental of the Earth Art Show + Flower Maiden Work in Progress

Last week I visited the Sturt Haaga Gallery at Descanso Gardens and I was thrilled to see Jamie Sweetman's artworks up on the wall.  Earlier this year, I took some drawing workshops with her at the Norton Simon Museum.  There are works up by other artists in a variety of styles, but on this visit, I only had the opportunity to photograph her works.  This show runs until November 24th of this year, if you're in the area, I think it's definitely worth taking a look.  If I get a chance to visit again before the show ends, I'll try to take some photographs to share of art by some of the other artists, it's an interesting show.

Your WIP is looking lovely and I can't wait to see it completed. :)

I've not heard of Jamie Sweetman but by the looks of her intricate drawings, I'd like to know more about this artist.
