Artist of the Month

December 2019: George Sweetland

George Sweetland is an elementary school teacher who has taught for 13 years. He has truly enjoyed teaching children but has always maintained a deep love for art, especially within the realm of children’s book illustrations. His ultimate dream is to write and illustrate children’s books. He is currently in the process of working on a manuscript to submit to agents with the hope of someday being published. 

He has recently worked with the Hartford Public Library to create characters for their Boundless community program that will be coming out later next year. He has also worked with breweries to create labels, logos for bands, and as well as various custom art prints for numerous clients.

He has an operational store available for his digital art prints through the online website Etsy called SweetlandofArt. You can also find him on Instagram where he posts original artwork daily. His works provided for this exhibit are inspired by winter and Christmas.
