How is it that "voice" comes through in an artist’s work? This example is from Ivana Molinari Schwab, a Swiss artist who has studied with Kathleen Dustin and Louise Fischer Cozzi and others.
Ivana brings her own emerging voice to experiments such as these Dustin-influenced brooches. She communicates a twist and a laugh in her "color" series. This makes me want to see what’s next and to hear the rest of this promising artist’s story.

Chili Pepper was selected by Pantone as the color of the year for 2007. They describe it as, "A bold hue that catches the eye and projects confidence, sophistication and engages our senses. We’re seeing shifts in people’s opinions on current events and major changes in the way they are expressing themselves through new technology. People are open to the possibilities of the future and Chili Pepper celebrates that."
