Our artist of the month for the month of June is Ben Vanderpool. Ben came to AOS in 2017 with a unique interest in textiles and fabric. Ben quickly fit into the AOS family with his quirky sense of humor and innovative style. Ben is drawn to fabrics for their textures and patterns and is gifted at pulling the right color schemes together. In studio last year, Ben crafted a hand sewn bag based on a scene in Harry Potter. During his 2018 year, Ben ditched the sewing machine and began making unique artwork integrating drawing on fibers, as well as mixed media designs on painted canvas. We know Ben will continue to inspire us with his unique tastes and aspirations to create mixed media art with textiles!
