DescriptionPart one of a series of four depicting the same scene in each season. Pen and ink drawing with digital textures and color. Winter, a time of end of the year celebrations, snowball fights, hot cocoa, hibernating under warm blankets, cabin fever for some, the fear of the upcoming tax season, hazardous driving and endless shoveling. A time for reflecting upon the passing year and looking forward to New Year's resolutions that will be broken within the first week. A simultaneously beautiful and incredibly inconvenient season to be sure!
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!
