Winstead, a published children’s illustrator and author and a Springfield native, has begun to focus solely on painting and collage work. TORN painted a picture of Winstead’s childhood perspective of growing up in the Bible Belt while coinciding with her present perspective of what it’s like living here today.

Winstead's artist statement was placed within the entryway to quickly introduce the concept behind her latest body of work, TORN.

The body of works were displayed in a beautiful home environment—a gallery trend happening in larger cities—which made it simple for spectators to imagine having a piece of Winstead’s art to display in their own homes. With special attention to lighting and placement throughout the house exhibition, the works took center stage, allowing for a similar flow to a gallery viewing. 

Artist representation by Obelisk Home, and catering by Pino + Tink's.
