Artist of the Month February 2023


Paige Prier

Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Born on New years Eve, Paige has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Florida. Based in Atlanta, Georgia, Paige Prier explores internal visual narratives, in an ethereal abstract figurative style, with special focus on myths, fables, fairy tales, imaginary creatures, dreams, and ghosts. Her work has been shown in numerous galleries, shown in television and film, and been featured on albums.

How and when did you start creating art?

I began making art in my childhood. Artmaking, for me, was always about making the things I could imagine into something physical. I loved finding things from the outside world that resonated with me and folding these things into my internal world.

What media and genres do you work in?

I work with watercolor, acrylics, oils, and sometimes dry media as well- I let myself wander through different media as the materials draw me to them. I work in a blended combination of figurative, abstract, and surreal genres. I have recently started adding ekphrastic prose poems to each piece, to optionally enrich the piece.

Who or what are your influences?

Conceptually stories probably influence the content of my work- I love reading fiction, listening to story-based podcasts, hearing fables and myths and so forth.

What was your inspiration for

Tea and Spirits


This idea was a sort of variation on communing with ghosts by having a tea party. 

“She would call them in a seance, and invite them to tea that she mixed with vodka, so that their spirits would likewise be infused with tannic pleasure.”

Describe your creative process?

I have an intuitive process, so I like to mark out a composition, experiment with materials, and then kind of give myself over to a kind of flow state.

What are you working on currently?

Recently, I have been doing a lot of commissions for album cover art. It is really nice to collaborate with musicians and be able to have our work intertwine and create a bit of gestalt. I am also putting together a book of paintings and the ekphrastic prose poetry I write to accompany each piece.

What are your near/long term goals as an artist?

I hope to keep connecting with people through my work. I love hearing that I enriched anyone's life. Long term I would love to have some great galleries to represent me, so that I could create more and do less on the self-promotional side of things- and maybe having them take me to the big fairs.

Where can people view/purchase your work (gallery, website, etc)?
