Summer has always been my least favorite season, but lately Iâ€™ve been feeling differently about it. Summer has become quite the inspiration to me. Hints of it can be seen in a lot of my college artwork.
I believe the began when I discovered my love of the beach during my two visits to Ocean City, MD. That place makes everywhere else seem so dull.
I often find inspiration in the love I feel for my fiance, Xavier. He is the light of my life -- my entire world. He brings the color to every day. Without him, I donâ€™t know where I would be... Lost, probably. Happy? Probably not. Iâ€™d be living in black and white.
A lifetime of video games has inspired in me a love of creating characters. I have a soft spot for characters with creepy elements.
I even gave these monsters some names. Here, you can meet them from left to right, top to bottom!: Glutton, Eyre, Potence, Beep, Spoke, Regina, X, Dr. Trunk, Stomper, Punk, Gorge, Venus, Mer, Bean, Nebulon, Peeper.
I adore animals!
They impact some of my design choices, as seen in these pieces.
I am inspired by my teachers and the assignments they give.
I likely would have never thought to do or try lot of the art projects Iâ€™ve done since starting college -most of which I am proud of.
Itâ€™s especially refreshing after going to a high school where the art classes were very underwhelming and sub-par. I taught myself the art skills I use today. No shade, Mrs. Sorenson.
One thing I did learn in high school, however, is that spiders have great power over me!
These are only some of the things that inspire me. What inspires you?
