Artist Statement
My motivation for making my art work is the extra time I have available to me. If i'm not busy you'll find me drawing in my sketchbook. My work doesn't raise questions. If anything it expresses my feelings as an artist. My art could be for any age, but only some pieces for older generations. I don't have many inspirations besides music, specifically techno music. When I listen to certain songs I can pull images out of them and create unique pieces. To me art is a way to document the world around us and our part in it. My future direction in art is going into Graphic Design. I will be incorporating my drawing skills and creative ideas into producing artwork on the computer.

This was the first project of the year. I created a card for jack. We had to make them personal and use symbols like hearts, cupid, or arrows in a nontraditional way. I decided to have three pages to my card that you could see through to the next layer. I used a giant heart on the front with acetate that gives you a preview of the next page. The snake and bat is a symbol thats personal to jack. Strange music is a music label that he loves as do I. The last layer is the sentimental writing part of the card. A difficulty that I encountered was painting the card with watercolor. This type of medium bleeds through paper so I had to make sure I painted both sides and not drip onto the next page.
This was the first sketchbook activity. I put it on a prepared page and the wallpaper created a layout that I could colour and alter to make it my own. I’ve done a similar page before with the same idea. Both pages have jack and I as little figures as the focal point, telling a story. I was very satisfied with this piece and till this day is one of my favorite artworks. To me it looks like a fairytale place. It’s very calm and beautiful. It reminds me of places in tropical areas and I love to travel as does jack so this was appropriate to imagine.
The objective of this project was to repeat an image by using a different elements and principals each time. I decide to show my best recreations that were part of my booklet. I included value, colour and symmetrical balance. After completing the booklet I was very glad to have it finished. At first I started with the easiest element and principal and then I moved onto the more difficult ones. I think I did a good job demonstrating them.
For this sketchbook activity we had to show juxtaposition. So I chose to draw two animals on a prepared page. The zebra I decided should have leopard patterning and the antelope to have zebra patterning. My first try at the juxtaposition page failed since I didn't quite show the principal. Therefore I restarted and came up with my current page of animals.
By having to draw a distorted figure in ink, the outcome wasn’t what I had originally expected. If it had been in pencil, the drawing would have been more realistic. Even though there are many techniques to shading in pen, I still struggled with this project. I am much better off with pencil. I liked the object I used to reflect myself in but I could have chosen an easier object. It was cute to have a little heart container but I needed something to distort my face more.
I really enjoyed drawing this picture. I thought of it the moment I saw silhouette on the list of sketchbook activities. I used a prepared page which was full of cut outs. I put interesting backgrounds underneath the first page such as tree bark, tinfoil, and a green swirly pattern. I used the tinfoil to create a mirror shape to frame my silhouette drawing of a girl. I find its always interesting to look at and I would love to do more pages like this one.
We had the choice of drawing a social justice issue poster, a poster for women against violence or a magazine cover. At the time I needed and example of a layout design for my portfolio to Algonquin. So I went with drawing a magazine cover. I wanted to do a gardening magazine so I picked out a flower to draw and came up with different headings that would be on the cover. I planned to have the flower on the bottom right side of the page and fit the text around the petals on the left side.
Even though this is a finished piece it was my rough copy for a poster I was doing in another class. I wanted to see how it would look. I had to do an environmental poster so this page has an eye with the earth as the iris. The saying is you see it every day let the next generation experience it. The earth should be taken care of and I wanted to express my concern for future generation to experience the same things that we do.
As I said in my artist statement I listen to songs and draw from them. This was one of them and the song is called Shell Suite. The drops of blue represent the guitar notes. The colorful background represents all the musical instruments that occur in the song. I choose to draw a raven simple beside I like the bird and I needed an animal to look like it was making noise. The sound waves represent the best part of the song when the lead singer says you. This page was also done on a prepared page. I learned a lesson from last year to use my prepared pages because I hate being left with an unfinished page.
The basis of this page was the word chanteuse. It is a song that I love listening to. Chartreuse is a color halfway between yellow and green that was named because of its resemblance to the green color of one of the French liqueurs called green chartreuse. I printed of a picture of myself that I took with a broken camera which ended up creating a cool effect with the colours. I used it because of the colours mentioned in the song. I used sharpie to colour in the background around the lyrics and the spots of candle wax. It was yet again a prepared page.
I made many clay pieces. There are two wheel pieces and three hand building ones. I made a milk container for pouring into tea to go along with a sugar bowl I made the year before. There is a tiny bowl that was supposed to be the milk container but I messed up so I changed in into a bowl instead. I also made two candle holders by hand. Finally I hand built the strange music symbol for jack. One of the wings broke in the first firing so I built another wing and glued it back together. I like all of my pieces but I wish I had chosen a different colour for the candle holders.
This is by far my favourite piece of artwork. I love the original picture mainly because I altered the colours and my hair is purple. Dying my hair is something I have always wanted to do but I am not allowed because my parents are against it. I saw something similar to my piece in which they redrew some of the picture as well. I drew it as close as I could to the original picture I took.
For this project we were allowed to work with a partner. The theme for the galley was blooms in spring. We showcased many paintings of flowers by multiple artists in a gallery space that we designed. The only trouble we had with this project was hot gluing the walls together. Even though we cut out lines straight we still ended up having spaces between the walls.
This was the last sketchbook activity of the year. I used my plan for my silkscreen and added sharpie to the acetate. I made swirl patterns around the page and where the eyes of the mask would be. I drew a human eye and a snake eye. I didn’t glue down the acetate. Instead I left it loose on the page so that the viewer can pick it up and look at the designs on the page and on the mask.
I started off this project with not a care in the world how it turned out. But as I began the process of exposing my design on the silkscreen I wanted to produce good prints. I made 39 in total. I had fun going through all the colours available to me. Some days it was frustrating when I would have one smudge mark here or watermark there. To get a flawless print a great deal of prints must be made.
