As an Artist and Illustrator I am essentially interested in bright colours and eye capturing projects. This past semester I have been working on improving my photography and photoshop skills. Taking my photos at Big Hill Springs, I brought them back to be edited and that is where I came up with the idea that changing the colours of the photos gave them a different feeling. Working on some still life drawings at the beginning of the semester I used real subjects and pencil crayons. Near the end of this semester we began playing with sculpture work. The task behind the project was that the sculpture needed to be about something you like or enjoy. I love birds but needing a theme for the birds to follow, I chose some beautiful Canadian species to choose from. These birds are stacked atop another; Beginning with a Northern cardinal, followed by Canadian Goose, then a Canadian Woodpecker, then a Robin and finally a Heron. Being a very imaginative and creative illustrator I wanted to add some childlike delight and wonder to my sculpture. Adding a crown to the Heron was my addition to that fairy tale side of me. All of the pieces fell into the nature category. Being that it was the first semester and the fall, “Hello Autumn” became the theme for my exhibition.
