Thanks for joining me here to discover amazing current artists who focus on creating sacred art.
This week I'm interviewing Michael Corsini. I discovered Michael's art a few years ago through his music and have been inspired by following him on his creative journey. I hope if you don't know of his work that you'll soon be as much of an admirer as I am. Most of all I pray you are blessed and encouraged in your faith by his talent.
On to the interview!
What is your name and where are you from?
Michael Corsini Waymart, PA
How did you end up creating sacred art? Did you start out with a desire to do that or were you eventually lead in that direction?
I was led to create sacred art after I entered the Catholic Church.
What medium/s do you work with?
Oil mostly, but also acrylics and many drawing mediums... charcoal, pastel, etc...
Do you have a favorite or patron saint? Who inspires your work?
Do you have a favorite historical artist or period?
It's kind of silly to ask an artist what their favorite color is, but are there colors you are more drawn to?
Ha! I like greens.
Do you have a website? Can my readers find you on any other social media platform?
Do you take commissions?
Is there a work of art you have created that is your favorite?
So far, "Mother of Priests"
Is there anything specific I haven't asked that you would like to share about your process or what inspires your work?
