Jon Spelman



Artist Statement

Live oral storytelling, the expressive delivery of vivid words to an engaged and listening audience, is the medium for one-on-one communication. Whether a story’s listeners number one or one thousand, the imagistic power of spoken words and their direct appeal to the imagination create a personal multi-media experience not equaled by any electronic device.

In a time of so much digital communication, many people sometimes want something different. How about the face-to-face experience available for listeners to the live art of storytelling?
