It has been ages since I posted! I have been busy though and I am excited to share all that I have been up to lately. Firstly, I have a wonderful mentor who I have been working with for the past couple of months - Amanda Sartor. If you are not familiar with her work - check out amsartor.com. Just the couple of months of her pushing me and guiding me has created a real breakthrough for me artistically. Plus, I have started Schoolism which I got through funding their Kickstarter. I am taking the Pictorial Composition class with Nathan Fowkes. Though I have not been able to progress very far since I was busy with a paid project. (I will share that shortly as well!) In the meantime, I feel as though I have turned a corner with my art and i can't wait to experiment more. A merging of abstraction, stylized forms, and figurative art - it feels right to me. Anyway...here are a couple of my more recent pieces.
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
“A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.”
