hi, my name is faith benitez. i’m an idea-haver, crazy head that loves with passion and owner of why we love austin.
they say that creativity is contagious. why we love austin is a community-focused, creativity-driven collaborative project of love, founded with a deep running passion for the city i am so grateful to call home. i love art, and thrive on experiencing it. this space is a means to fuel your creativity by spotlighting local artists, keeping you updated on area art happenings, and sharing the beautiful art postcards that the community submits.
(and a quick word on the later, i plaster the city with blank postcards that invite you to get creative. the idea of the postcards stems from my affinity for street art and my obsession with the creative process. i love the idea of a forum that can be as anonymous or as forthcoming as the artist is comfortable. the postcard is to serve as a vehicle to your medium of choice. if you see a postcard around town, pick one up, get literary, get crafty, get dirty, get creative and send it in! they are featured on the site every friday in a “postcard friday” post).
with love, as always,
