Senior Artists and Poets

Artists are on this page.  If you want  poets, click on Senior Poets

Senior artists are growing in number. After the pressures of child raising and/or the daily engagement in a full time job, many take time to explore and express the creative aspects of their personalities.

For some people this is a new that enriches their lives. Elizabeth Layton did not begin to draw until her 60's but drawing soon became her passion. See: Elizabeth Layton, artist of Old Age.

But Layton is not the only one. Alice and Richard Matzkin are two artists who began to paint and sculpt the Art of Aging after they turned 50. They created a video to explain. Click on: Senior artists : The Art of Aging

One of the aims of this web is to showcase what aging or elderhood can be like. And showcasing art is one way of meeting that goal. I invite you to submit a photo of your work, to write a few paragraphs giving us some background - either about yourself as an artist or the particular work(s) you are submitting.

If you have a website gallery, feel free to include your url. If you link back to this web site (any one of your pages) I will include a link to your site in return.

Please be sure to include you full name; I will not publish items submitted with first names only (Trying to prevent scams.)

NOTE: To give many artists an opportunity to publish work, I shall only build one page per artist. Thanks for your understanding.

Thanks for sharing,
