I have become fascinated with drawing and painting crystals recently. I love the intricate and varied shading that forms the geometry of gems and wanted to blend the straight edges with the curvy lines of the leaves and roots.
My art displays an exuberance for natural life and growth as well as its inevitable decay; its impermanence captured on paper. I am deeply inspired by tropical plant life, microorganisms, and various animals. These fascinating subjects are used to describe my personal triumphs, miseries, and everything in between. I also have a passion for using many different types of media including charcoal, pastels, colored pencils, watercolor, collage, printmaking, etc. Be sure to also check out my website at allisonpatera.com.
