Celebrating Stacy Siegel: A Triumph of Artistic Expression at the Florida State Fair

Stacy Won

At Hanson Art & Design, we are privileged to witness the growth and evolution of many talented artists. Today, we are thrilled to celebrate one of our own, Stacy Siegel, who recently won second place in the Florida State Fair's Painting - Abstract & non-representational art competition. Stacy's winning piece, 'Dobbs' Roe', is a testament to her artistic prowess and the power of art as a medium for personal expression and social commentary.

'Dobbs' Roe': The Winning Piece

'Dobbs' Roe' is a striking abstract painting that captures the viewer's attention with its raw, visceral energy. The canvas has been purposely attacked and damaged, reflecting the tumultuous emotions that inspired the piece. Stacy painted 'Dobbs' Roe' in response to the recent overturning of Roe V. Wade, expressing her frustration and disappointment with the decision through her art.

The painting is a powerful statement, a visual representation of the turmoil and unrest that many felt in the wake of the decision. It is a testament to Stacy's ability to channel her emotions into her art, transforming her frustration into a piece that resonates with many.

Stacy's journey with us at Hanson Art & Design has been one of growth and discovery. Our classes and coaching sessions have helped her hone her skills and find her unique voice as an artist. We have seen her evolve from a student to a confident artist who is not afraid to express her thoughts and feelings through her work.

We are incredibly proud to have played a part in preparing and encouraging Stacy for the competition. Her success is a testament to the power of our coaching, which aims to empower our students to express their individual voices through their art. Stacy's achievement is a shining example of what our students can accomplish when they are given the right tools and guidance.

This competition was the first art show Stacy has ever participated in, marking a significant milestone in her artistic journey. Before joining our classes, Stacy never took herself seriously as an artist. However, her time with us has helped her recognize her potential and embrace her identity as an artist.

Her success in the competition is a testament to her growth, not just as an artist, but also as an individual. It is a reminder of the transformative power of art and the impact it can have on an individual's self-perception and confidence.

We are immensely proud of Stacy's achievement and are honored to know that she is one of our students. Her success is a testament to her talent, dedication, and the power of the education we provide at Hanson Art & Design.

Stacy's story is an inspiration to us all, and we hope it will encourage other students to follow in her footsteps. Her journey is a powerful reminder of the importance of art as a medium for personal expression and social commentary, and the role that education and coaching can play in nurturing an artist's growth.

We look forward to seeing what Stacy will accomplish next and are excited to continue supporting her on her artistic journey.
