photography. I capture people's personality.
I see myself as a starving artist, who works a full-time job. This allows me to buy supplies for the wearable art I create. I'm also an a poet, and write haiku to accompany the necklaces I create.
I am a lyrical/emotional abstract painter with a background in interior design. I have always been able to identify with American Abstract Expressionistic painters, however my work tends to lean more towards a lyrical feel which was evident in the French movement of the same era.
My paintings are quite organic and my own emotions play an important part in what appears on the canvas. I employ a loose hand with the paint and use brushes sparingly preferring a variety of objects for paint manipulation.
I work in pastels and oils and once in a blue moon, watercolors. I am pretty much a traditionalist, although the longer you do art, I think it inevitably becomes more abstract. Things become clearer and simpler. The question of defining myself as an artist is a tricky one, for today, anyone who marks a piece of paper or a canvas is an "artist". I have been doing art long enough and making enough sales to say "artist". But there is something deeper, a drive to create that is a constant that allows me to call myself an artist.
I sketch and paint daily - when I don't, it feels like I haven't brushed my teeth! I mainly use watercolours, but I do use other mediums like acrylics, oils and pastels from time-to-time. But its mostly watercolours that fascinate me - the flow of colour on a good grade watercolour paper and the brilliance of the colours one can achieve is second to none!
I haven't had any formal art training apart from a couple of semesters of art in high school in the ninth grade, but ever since I can remember I've been drawing and sketching and have always carried a sketchbook with me everywhere I go. I would draw the flowers, my dog, my sister, the trees, the birds and every beautiful picture I came across in books.
My parents told me that, from a very young age, I would scribble and doodle anything from hearts and stars to tiny houses and birds (this habit continues to this day, especially while speaking on the telephone) and at the age of 7 my father gave me my first Parker pen and pencil set for my birthday, which started a life-long love affair with writing and journaling. My journals consisted of the normal 'dear diary' type of entries, together with sketches and drawings of whatever was happening in my life at the time.
I am an illustrator and I work with oil, acrylic, pastel, ink, pencil, watercolor, airbrush....I just love trying out all the media that exists.
I paint what I feel. I don´t have a certain "style", I believe I can paint anything if I just put my heart in it.
I work as an artist and curator. I paint and run workshops.
My painting is inspired by the spiritual and usually involves a conceptual process of meditation.
The workshops incorporate transformational drawing, movement and meditation.
I have run two galleries and am in project mode for a major exhibition for 2010.
I'm a conceptual oil,acrylic and watercolor artist, with a background in paintings. This background influences what I do with colors, apart from painting nature, i go beyound stark realities of life and ponder the fantansis of my world of imaginations.
I sing. I dance. I write. I play. I am constantly finding ways to embrace and release, speak and listen. I am most interested in art as communion. making contact, connecting. Oh, and remembering constantly that the whole point is to enjoy it, to have fun.
Very simply, by making art. By observing, photographing, and recording the world around me and then modifying the images into new views and comments on existing environments. By collaborating with other artists and learning from them.
I am an arts administrator, a mixed media + textile artist.
I am an artist. I love being an artist. I love creating work, it is the most fulfilling life.
I am both a traditional and digital artist. Trained as an illustrator/graphic artist, I use all forms of media to produce the end result. However, over the past 15 years I've developed a technique using digital generation to produce my products called, eLITHOGRAPH© and ePHOTOGRAVURE©. I do not promote my work as fine art. I am a creative image designer and producer. My work will have the look of fine art. Maybe one day, the technique will be seen as a new type of 'fine art' production. The focus of my work is primarily on natural elements; wildlife, scenic, heritage outdoor activities. With specialties in entomology, herpetology, mycology in macro and micro formats. My work begins as digital photography and will either stay in that medium or morph into digital recreations.
Brief Art Practice History
Issues involved in my art practice derive from cultural belief systems, including rituals, ceremonies and their associated objects and icons.
I am interested in the history and formation of rituals, individual perspectives regarding rituals and objects and how these are placed within the current jigsaw puzzle we call ‘contemporary globalisation’.
Aspects of illuminated manuscripts, cathedral design, rose windows, Christian communion, Buddhism, Confucian writings, stele inscriptions, Aboriginal rock art, Druid and Celtic structures and mark making have influenced my art production since late 1990’s.
I am a retired police officer composite sketch artist. Iam a gallery artist with Cavin-Morris gallery in new york. I am a artist and a teacher they go hand and hand.
