Description These colorful squares of varied size and color reminded me of a computer motherboard. The motherboard is the heart of the computer without which it could not function. Without a computer I wouldn't be able to do what I love, creating and sharing artwork with the world, which would make life tedious and dull. I will always find a way to create, it's just like breathing for me, but computers make this journey so much more amazing. So I highly respect this wonderful technology that has helped open up this new world of possibilities for me.
Shawna Rowe Member Since July 2012 Artist Statement I grew up in a creative family who loved photography, music, art and random hiking adventures. That helped me to develop a love for nature and artistic expression early on. I've never limited myself to one particular medium but I do favor graphic shapes, bold colors and whimsical style. Whatever the medium, I try to include some or all of those elements in my work.
My family has always been a big inspiration and they feature in a series of satirical cartoons that I've done just for fun over the years. Each year I make a new cartoon to celebrate each of my daughter's birthdays. I've also made my own greeting cards for family members over the years.
Lately, I've been making detailed magazine collages. Each one is made of 100% recycled paper cut into tiny shapes and carefully applied much like paint onto canvas. It's an art-form that requires a lot of time and patience but I love this unusual way of creating. Thank you for visiting my gallery!
