Description Magazine collage made up of many odd things, some furry some not so furry. Fun facts below courtesy of wikipedia.'The squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) is a nocturnal gliding possum. Not to be confused with flying squirrels. The species is threatened by humans clearing and breaking up their habitats. It also has predators of dogs, cats, foxes, and owls. This species' home range extends from Bordertown near the South Australian/Victorian Border through south-eastern Australia to northern Queensland. This species was thought to be extinct in South Australia since 1939 until a genetic test confirmed their presence in the area.''The squirrel glider lives in dry sclerophyll forest and woodlands in south-eastern Australia. In Queensland, however, they occupy a wetter eucalypt forest.''The glider sleeps in a leaf-lined den in a hollow tree. It usually lives in groups of one male, 2 females, and offspring. This causes the species to be put on the Near Threatened list, meaning it is close to being a threatened species.'
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!
