Share

We are delighted to announce today, talented mobile photographer and artist, Carol Wiebe is joining us as New Columnist and Editor for our brand new Column entitled ‘Draw the Line – Mobile Art as an Expression’.

Wiebe explains what this group is all about; “this group is about mobile photos with the added touch of applied line. If you are a mobile artist who is in love with line, this group is for you! You might apply line work in the form of drawing, adding patterns, lines, and marks. Perhaps your lines are stitched,  or glued, with thread or string.  Lines can be a major element, placing drawn components into the photo that help to draw out (yes, pun intended) the meaning you, as the artist, want to express. There will be examples provided for inspiration, but we are counting on your imagination and talent to marry these two venerable art forms into a fascinating hybrid.”.

Within ‘Draw the Line’ Wiebe will curate the very best mobile art. She will interview successful artists, create challenges, engage in their processes, showcase their work and more!

We have a Facebook group dedicated to ‘Draw the Line’ and like our other Facebook groups, this will provide a platform for discussion on the techniques, aesthetics and goals that all mobile photographers bring to this art form. Please join this group.

We have also set up a special Flickr Group for ‘Draw the Line’ where we would like you to submit your images to for curation in showcases. In addition, we have a hashtag for Instagram for this group too, entitled #tawdrawtheline – please use that when taggin images on Instagram. Please join this group too.

TheAppWhisperer is growing at a phenomenal rate and trying to include as much unique content and variety from the mobile photography and art wold as our readers can possibly digest, you really don’t need to go anywhere else!

Please join us in welcoming Carol Weibe to TheAppWhisperer family, Welcome Carol!

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— 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 - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com 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. Please contact her at: joanne@theappwhisperer.com
