Description Itâ€™s a summer night. The starry sky is blue violet. Three luna moths float on the air. They flutter above the irises, which are in full bloom with frilly violet petals on sturdy green stems. Itâ€™s a dreamy scene, full of vibrant color: indigo, violet, purple, slate blue, cobalt blue, periwinkle, dark lavender, a hint of white, sage green, and light chartreuse. A whimsical illustration perfect for any nature lover.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 fills created from scans of my drawings (the luna moths) and my paintings (a salt on watercolor painting, and an abstract acrylic background). Since the â€śoriginalâ€ť 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).
