Description A playful koi fish splashes happily in a swirling blue-green pond. An original illustration with digital color, vector shapes and patterns. The koi or nishikigoi is one of the most popular ornamental fish both for it's hardiness and it's beauty. They come in a wide variety of colors with unique patterns and scales. They are most often found kept in outdoor koi ponds and water gardens and if properly cared for can outlive us. Average life span is 50 or more years and one of the most long lived koi named 'Hanako' lived to be 225.
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!
