ARI APPEL ART
My name is Ari, I'm 29 years old. I grew up in Southern Illinois and currently reside in Washington State. Since I can remember I have always been inspired to create. I started out with digital photography always taking photos of everything I laid my eyes on. My love for film photography and the dark room grew when I attended university and studied in Israel. Even more so as i travel - my film camera is always near by. Later I began to study and understand mixed media and started using different mediums and materials to create one piece. I began oil painting when I moved to South Florida years ago. My love for oil painting keeps expanding the more and more that I paint.
Art is all around us at every given moment -we just get to open our eyes to see it and appreciate it. I am here to create and help others create and broaden their minds to make beautiful things, in as many possible ways that I can. Let me know what questions I can answer if any. Feel free to email me!
