Guest Artist - Walter Raemisch
mixed media visual artist, fine arts photographer
I am an artist, a mixed media visual artist, enthusiast of all things typographic and a contemporary fine arts photographer. Perhaps being an artist should cover all those bases but sometimes it takes a different medium or a mix of them to satisfy a creative challenge or personal interpretation. These trying times have made the arts our saviour, a place to escape and express our fears and celebrate our joys. We are all artists.
