APPart – Bobbi McMurry New Columnist – Joins The Team – TheAppWhisperer

We are delighted to welcome Bobbi McMurry as a new Columnist to  Bobbi will head up the APPart Column, previously run by the brilliant Mel Harrison. Mel paved the way in creating a sensational column in APPart, with How To’s/Tips and wonderful thought provoking articles, sadly (to us) due to personal reasons she can no longer commit the time that is needed to continue its development.  We are extremely pleased that Bobbi McMurry has accepted our invitation to run this column, we have admired her art for a long time. She is hugely talented and has some great ideas and we will incorporate those and bring you fabulous mobile artist interviews, showcases, how to’s and more.

As many of you will know we have a Facebook Group specifically for this Column – please see here. This is where you can raise questions, discuss anything you’d like to discuss, relating to mobile art and of course, post some images for conversation.

In addition we also have a Flickr Group for this column. We would like to see all your digital art and collages added to this specialised group, we will select images for curation and showcases as well as commentary. This is the link to the Flickr group.

Please join us in welcoming Bobbi McMurry to family, we are so pleased to have you, thank you!

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.
