Fine Arts alumni Daniel Colvin (CCAD 2000), owner of Cobenick Studios and paper artist, and Sarah Fairchild (CCAD 1994), painter and art teacher at Gahanna Lincoln High School, were recently featured in a Columbus Dispatch article highlighting artist’s studios in central Ohio.
"Paper was so attractive to me because there are textures you can achieve and ways you can manipulate it that you can't do in any other medium," Colvin said in the article. "And there's never a point where you can't go back and play with it."
Colvin creates sculptures, wall hangings, and large murals from paper. He also practices printmaking and bookbinding and has had works on display at art festivals throughout Ohio, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.
In the article, Fairchild said she sees the “drama created by bold color” and applies this to her mixed-media paintings. "I enjoy taking a simple garden plant—like cabbage, corn, Brussels sprouts or soybeans—and elevating it," Fairchild said.
