Pen and ink drawing with digital textures and color.Spring is by far my favorite season but in a location where you have all four seasons it seems to last for such a brief time. Spring is the time for rebirth and renewal, flowers blooming, trees flowering, warm air returning with all the intoxicating floral scents. In my area Canadian geese can be seen with their newly hatched babies following behind them. With the promise of Summer around the corner, all this beauty and wonder helps when tackling those spring cleaning projects and preparing the garden for the upcoming growing season.
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!
