Mia Capotorto Sommese

Welcome. 


Doodling is not something I grew out of, but something I continue to grow into. 


Mainly experimenting with black and white, but occasionally with color, I strive to create patterns, textures, and characters with little planning.


The practice revolves around following the pen, paintbrush, marker, crayon, or scissor. any surface is a canvas, and no line is an error.


I only listen to my hands, and what comes out is what you see.


There is no editing, only rediscovery.


I learned from having parents who let me cover the kitchen table in paper and spill my entire crayon collection onto it. 


I practiced mostly in school, and also everywhere else. Many images are inspired from small ideas that started between the margins of my class notes, on diner placemats, on restaurant napkins. 


I am always beginning, and always expanding. 


I love creating for people: to make art is to share it. 


Enjoy the organized chaos, and thank you so much for visiting. 


Love, Mia‚Äč
