My Art Story

Whimsical, Imaginative, Creative Me

Ever since I can remember…

I loved to express myself with art and I am always at my happiest when I am absorbed in the creative process.

My earliest memory was when I was in senior kindergarten. When my mom picked me up at the end of the day my painting got ripped in the wind and rain as I stepped out the door. I was devastated, but that failed to quell my creative spirit. As I grew up, I delighted in my artistic escapes by taking art in high school and university. Today my greatest bliss continues to be when I explore and experiment with my imagination, art materials, and personal creative style.

You name it- I’ve created and played with it…

Oil paint, acrylic paint, fabric dyes, wool, paper, metal leaf (faux gold leaf), digital paint with my ipad pro and computer.  But what I love most is combining several art materials, including patterns and imaginary animals that I create on the computer.  

I also love to let my imagination go and allow my pencil to doodle abstract forms and designs  in my sketchbook. This is how I come up with ideas for my art and how my imaginary, fantasy-like make-believe animal take shape and come to life.

I often dabbled in creating my own crazy creatures over the years, but I never really did much with it until now, because I was exploring other concepts with my art.  My dad used to say to me that he thought I should focus on creating characters. He liked that aspect of my art the best.

What inspires me now?…

I am still drawn to allowing my imagination to flourish as I create my art, and I am inspired by the uninhibited nature of childhood imagination.  Fantasy art also inspires me, but I strive to develop my art in an entirely unique and original way independent from standard fantasy themes. I’ll see where my art takes me as I have my own versions of unicorn-inspired creatures in my sketchbook.  Sometimes ideas just come to me, other times I doodle my way to a creation. Check out my blog to see some examples from my sketchbook.

It is my hope…

that my art, with it’s imaginary creature art will bring a touch of whimsy to your child’s bedroom and hopefully even inspire their imaginations.

Future plans for my art…

Additional plans I have for my art moving forward is to develop an abstract series of art that will still be related to allowing my imagination to guide the formation of my work.  Follow me on social media below to keep up-to-date with my progress and find out when I will be adding my online shop, where I will sell both prints and originals.

My blog is in three categories:  My Creative Musings, My Mixed Media Play and Process and  Monthly Social Media Highlights.
