ARTIST STATEMENT

“Let yourself be drawn by the stronger pull of that which you truly love.”
― Jalaluddin Rumi

I create experimental pieces from original iPhone 6 photos. The photos are of the sun and other scenes in nature.

The photos are manipulated, cut and paste and run through apps until I get unique and interesting effects.

My art style came about as a response to a serious health issue. I tried using zentangle patterns to help my anxiety and stress during my health crisis, but it did not work so I experimented with the photos I took on my daily walks in nature. As a result an interesting art style was born. I came up with unique, one-of-a-kind, eye-catching designs that are mostly inspirational and thought provoking. I post everyday on Instagram to build an audience and to share my designs.

Final designs are saved at 300 dpi resolution. I have also opened a store on Society 6 (a work in progress). AmaSepia, my 17 year-old daughter, works with me to further edit the designs on Gimp and Photoshop to place on Society 6. In the coming weeks I hope to revamp and to update Society 6 to reflect new designs. See AmaSepia's designs in the link section.

My goal, with this work, still remains the same. First and foremost, I use it to heal, have fun and to calm my mind. However, I would love to collaborate with designers and to find licensing opportunities to place my art on clothing, home decor and decorative items.
