Creativity is like a big wave: sometimes you’re on top of it and ideas flow in you mind, so much that it is hard to build them all concretely, so you better keep a note of these ideas somewhere, especially for time when your creativity seems to have take a vacation from you and nothing is going the way you’d like…
Currently, my creativity is on the ascendent side so I write my ideas and create as much as possible.
As you may know, I’m searching my own style… and I finally begin to have a clearer idea. My mum says it’s “naive” but I don’t think so. Yes, the drawings are “simple”, just because I’m not a drawer.
I discover that I really enjoy (need) to use more than only one medium in each artwork. I love acrylic paint but I prefere when it’s mixed with something else, like stamping (I looooooooove stamps, sometimes too much), I love using Neocolors II also, and sometimes collage (I really need to learn how to incorporate them into an artwork, because when I do it, it gives something that is not consistent).
My Universe is like me: full of paradoxes. I love bright colors but dark themes. My dual personality is shown in what I create and finally, I like that. Art is a way to be fully myself, no matter what.
I would love to know how to paint with textures and abstract stuff… But one thing at the time. I may learn at Emily Carr (the design & art institute here in Vancouver) where I attend the “certificate program” until mid-2012.
I love how this artwork turned out. At first, i only had in my the round-headed character… the rest followed.
It’s not complete, I may add stuff in the sky 🙂
My husband likes it so much that he asked me to create him a big piece inspired by this one (it’s in progress at the moment I write this). I’ll show you if you want 🙂
Don’t be ashamed of your style, don’t be afraid of explore all the things you like and that inspire you, to go deep inside yourself to find what moves you. It may seem gore or too fluffy but if it is what calls you, go for it without thinking of what others might think. Just listen to YOUR voice 🙂
