Today's new Artist Watch feature at the international online arts magazine Escape Into Life looks to music for its inspiration — specifically, the beautiful hand-carved, hand-painted, and hand-pulled block prints of artist Kreg Yingst. All of Kreg's block prints are of wood or linoleum and in limited editions.

Degreed in studio art and painting, Kreg is a self-taught printmaker who makes his living solely from sales of his work, the subjects of which he researches deeply. He lives in Pensacola, Florida.

Kreg has provided for May's Artist Watch eight images that illustrate his popular interpretations of well-known blues musicians. His Artist Statement describes in brief how he creates his works, which also encompass a considerable body of sacred art. A short biography also is provided.
