This is the first time I’ve featured the work of a fellow artist on my blog.

When I first started to blog, I made the decision to keep my intentions simple and though I’ve been quite tempted to highlight the work of artists I admire, I have only shown you my various efforts.


Today I’m making an exception because the artist whose work I’m featuring is my son.

Gesture, humor, elegance and the drama of the human condition converge and surprise in Julian Cartwright’s  drawings and paintings.

At least that’s how I see it.

  1. These are just brilliant! Something so satisfying about them, they feel like music and words as well as artwork. What a talented family!

  2. What can I say that hasn’t already been said, the line drawings are wonderful. With a few strokes of your brush, you say so much, Elena. Your son with a few lines of his pen says so much also.

  3. How cool is this?! Great sketches – filled with wonderment and creativity, why would I think anything else considering his creative parents.

  4. The first piece you’ve featured here I think is amazing. Intricate care give to each stroke it seems. It along with the other creative drawings have been wonderful to take in.

  5. It seems that there is a natural flow and talent within the family Elena ! Wonderful art work .. your son has great talent ! Lovely website link 🙂

  6. Interesting how the coloured pieces seem to have quite a different character to the others. The coloured pieces I think are charming and whimsical. The others I find more thought-provoking. I wasn’t sure I liked them at first but after the third pass they’ve grown on me considerably. I hope you’ll be sharing more of Julian’s work. Maybe he should start his own blog…
