Title of piece: “Yellow Raincoat”
Inspiration behind piece:
I have always admired fashion illustrations, and while photography may
have surpassed illustrations in magazines, there is something special about
a fashion illustration created with pencils, pens or paint. Illustrations have a
way of capturing fashion in a way that photography cannot. I was inspired
to experiment creating some of my own illustrations.
What Does Art Mean to You?
Art to me is a form of communication. A vehicle for expressing thoughts or feelings. Drawing and painting can also be very therapeutic, so it is a great outlet for me to relax, have fun and be able to express myself on paper or canvas.
What is your favorite medium?
My favorite mediums are watercolor and acrylic.
Where do you prefer to work on your art?
I have a small studio at home but do love to paint outdoors when weather permits. Getting together with other artists and painting while sharing a bottle of wine is great too!
What inspires you most?
I am inspired most by life itself. People can be one of the most challenging subjects to paint but for me that is what I am most inspired by. And not just painting life, but also donating my artistic skills to raise money to try and make a difference in another individual’s life. For me it is a great way to give to my church and community.
Who is/are your biggest supporter(s)?
My family and friends. I have a great network of artist friends who are supporters as well!
