Description It’s a serene summer day. Monarch butterflies billow on the breeze. The flowers are in full bloom with their pink petals showing. The sky is mottled with blues: cyan, cerulean, slate, sky blue, periwinkle. The sky is also full of a subtle cascade of butterfly silhouettes. These fade into a ground of greens: spring green, pear green, chartreuse, olive, sage... It’s a whimsical and active illustration with summer charm and lots of color.The original image is a digital collage. A black and white pen & ink drawing was scanned into Photoshop where it was manipulated with color fills, and scans of my drawings (the butterflies) and my paintings (salt on watercolor). Since the “original” image is digital, the only physical form in which it exists is as a print.
Sarah Knight, Tecumseh Member Since July 2009 Artist Statement Hello, my name is Sarah Knight. I've had a lifelong interest in art. I started drawing at the age of two and haven't stopped since. And my mother has boxes upon boxes full of my drawings as evidence... I enjoy creating things, it's just what comes naturally. I have a BFA from the School of Art & Design of the University of Michigan (my concentration was scientific illustration).
